A Labor of Love

Handcrafted Artisan Chocolate

The Chocolate Elegance company was born when chocolatiers Jan and Bob Scibor turned a hobby into a passion to create artisanal chocolates using only the finest ingredients. Jan was first introduced to the art of chocolate making more than 30 years ago. She learned the basic chocolate making techniques and continued to expand her knowledge. Over the years, Jan and Bob created new candy recipes and techniques that have earned the respect and admiration of Chocolate Elegance customers all over the world.

Sadly, Jan passed away in 2015 and in 2016 Bob announced his retirement.
Still, Chocolate Elegance traditions carry on with the best chocolates, the best service, and the most beautiful packaging.

With a tradition of successful entrepreneurial endeavors in his background, B. Fred Ketron, a lifetime chocolate lover, of Kingsport was excited to continue the business that Jan and Bob started and he moved the operation to Kingsport (Bloomingdale area) during the summer of 2016.
Because of some health issues, Fred stepped away and the 2018 Fall season brought new owners Paul & Sandy Vowell  (Fred's daughter and son-in-law) into the Chocolate Elegance family. We are grateful to Bob for sharing his knowledge, and to Terry and Donna for their generosity and loyalty to the business that Jan created.


Jan's hand-picked staff is still producing the chocolates and putting together the beautiful packages. Our desire is to honor Jan's memory and continue her legacy of excellence under the guidance and tutelage of Bob Scibor.

2016: Chocolate Elegance LLC moved its physical location to Kingsport during the summer of 2016.
2020: The 2020 Covid-19 Pandemic and Quarantine was difficult for us, because Chocolate Elegance has always been an "event" business; as we all know, the events of 2020 were all cancelled. ALL of them! :/  But we continued to develop a few new products as we planned for an adjustment in our business model.
2021: Early 2021 as restrictions lifted, we have a few events back on the calendar and are handling special orders for many past clients. October opened a new brick and mortar store on Stone Drive/Highway 11W in Kingsport.
2022: The events are back on the schedule and we are happy to be traveling once again. Our Cafe and Chocolate Kitchen is doing very well and we invite you to shop with us. We hope to have more in-store events in the coming year.

We appreciate your patronage as we get settled into our retail space at 1420 E. Stone Drive, suites i and j, Kingsport; and invite you to shop with us at the many events that we attend, as well as online.
You can contact us at 423-765-1314 or 423-384-7285 and info@chocolate-elegance.com
