Chouchoute’s luxury chocolate journey since our creation in 2002
Chouchoute’s Creator & Co-owner
Chouchoute, (French for ‘pampered), was created in 2002 by Pierre Soualah. Having trained as a traiteur at Fauchon in Paris and Selfridges in London, Pierre’s vision was to turn his life-long passion for gastronomy into a gourmet taste experience. Chouchoute’s first (and only) boutique store opened in Birmingham’s business quarter, introducing Pierre’s elegant and exclusive chocolate creations, handmade in a timeless fashion by his artisan chocolatier in France.
As Chouchoute’s reputation for fine quality chocolates grew, so did our business customers’ demand for personalised chocolates and luxury gift hampers for their company events and milestone occasions. In 2004 we opened a corporate sales office managed by Pierre’s partner, Helen. Helen works closely with our corporate customers to assist them with their gift selection and guide them through the order process. As their needs change, so do our gift ranges, with box styles and sizes to suit every occasion and budget. In 2010 we upscaled our packing facility, and now take on order volumes of up to 5000 boxes.
Together, Pierre and Helen strive to make Chouchoute’s retail and corporate experience as enjoyable and effortless as possible for all our customers. They’re always on hand to offer advice about the best chocolate selection for your gift, whether it’s for a friend, loved one, colleague, client or just for you.
Meet Pierre at our Birmingham city centre store and he’ll be happy to offer you a chocolate or two to taste if you’re looking for a gift. And if you’re considering personalised chocolate gifts for business, events or weddings, you’re welcome to visit our corporate sales office in Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.
