The Hamtramck-based chocolatier Bon Bon Bon will move to a new, larger flagship location on Joseph Campau Avenue in Hamtramck, offering production space that is six times larger than the current operational space.
“Our neighbors, employees, and customers have been so dedicated and enthusiastic as we work to make ends meet and continue to grow and develop,” says Alexandra Clark, founder of Bon Bon Bon. “It’s just such an honor to now steward a brick and mortar bit of this amazing, multicultural enclave that we call home. We can’t wait to grow, to employ, to create, and to commune in our new space.”
Clark says the 3,200-square-foot shop, to be located at 11360 Joseph Campau Ave., is a two-story brick building that was previously home to a heating and cooling company. She says the space has a checkered past, including being the site of FBI raids.
Clark says there is no confirmed opening date for the new storefront, and the shop located at 2756 Evaline St. will remain open until the new store opens. The Bon Bon Bon storefront that opened last April in the Chrysler House in downtown Detroit will remain.
Bon Bon Bon, founded in 2014 in a 500-square-foot kitchen in Hamtramck, has expanded with the addition of pop-up shops across the U.S, in cities such as Ann Arbor, New York City, and Philadelphia. The chocolatier is known for its inventive flavors, such as crème brulee, butter cookie, and Key Lime pie, among others.
