Cocoa Dolce Artisan Chocolates to open at Bradley Fair

WICHITA — Bradley Fair has landed a sweet deal — literally.

Cocoa Dolce Artisan Chocolates is moving from Siena Plaza at 37th and Rock to Bradley Fair next to where Il Vicino is opening in August.

"Siena Plaza is a lovely little shopping center, but we've kind of outgrown it," says Cocoa Dolce owner Beth Tully.

She's moving the retail portion of her business into 1,800 square feet in early September. That compares to the 1,200 square feet Tully has now.

Last year, Tully moved the production side of her business to 3540 N. Comotara near House of Schwan.

Cocoa Dolce opened in November 2005.

"We've grown so quickly," Tully says.

And she likes the potential for more business at Bradley Fair since the Laham Development center attracts a lot of foot traffic.
