Isabel and Susana Garcia, the proprietors of Garcia Nevett – Chocolatier de Miami, have three business “storefronts.”
One opened four months ago on Southwest 57th Street in South Miami. The sisters, immigrants from Venezuela, have been making chocolate confections for a decade. When they arrived in Miami almost a decade ago, they restarted their business out of their homes, then expanded to wholesale. This year, they decided they wanted to make their brand more experiential, and opened up a retail shop. You can see (and smell) the chocolate being made throughout the day. Today the sisters sell more than 4,000 items per week.
