Chocolatiers Krista and Gerry Byers: sometimes love leads to chocolate.
Bed & Breakfasts
Meet the Chocolatiers: Gerry and Krista Byers
The name says it all. For 16 successful years, self-taught chocolatiers Krista and Gerry Byers and their team have been hand-crafting decadent delights in Belgian chocolate at this Fergus location. Their shop is stuffed with chocolate goodies and treats—whatever you can imagine, and then some. And they’re all lovingly created on site.
What started out as a small retail operation—born from a business plan Krista created at University and the desire both she and Gerry had to work together—has become a destination; one where people can taste, discover, savour and take home their favourites.
Some of their success is due to the high quality imported Belgian chocolate they start with; some to their pure creativity in finding new ways of looking at chocolate. But the biggest is the love that goes into the painstaking attention to detail that makes every chocolate a first-time, delectable experience.
There’s no doubt these chocolatiers have lots of love. Over several years, Krista and Gerry have adopted five Haitian children, and established various in-store programs for sending support to the orphanage where they once resided. They’ve taught a family in Port au Prince how to sew, providing them with a skill for a sustainable income. And their sister store, I Love That Gift! showcasing gifts and home décor, features the aprons this family in Haiti has made.
No wonder that “love” figures so prominently in everything they do—from family and staff, to hand-crafting some of the finest chocolates and sweets anywhere.
Open year round, Mon to Sat, 10 am to 6 pm. Open late Thurs & Fri until 8 pm, April to December. Extended hours during Holiday times. New delivery to your door by messenger service.
