Neil brings over 30 years of experience as a chocolatier to the shop, having managed a chain of gourmet chocolate stores in Boston, MA, before returning to his hometown of Westfield. The skills, integrity and quality that go into making these truly unique confections are what sets The Chocolate Bar apart and allows us to provide our customers with a one-of-a-kind experience.

With the help of his wife, Mindy, they were able to open up a beautiful new shop in Little Silver, including the addition of a professional pastry chef to the team of experienced and passionate chocolatiers who adds creativity and flair to the shops.
