Biz Briefs: Catherine's Chocolates Changes Name to Mielke Confections

Chocolate changes

Steve and Trent Kinney, the new owners of the Great Barrington landmark store Catherine's Chocolates, have announced a new name, look and logo. The original Catherine's Chocolates Store was named for the grandmother of the former owner, Kathy Sinico, and operated for 40 years under that name. The Kinneys are continuing the tradition of a family-owned local business, creating handmade quality chocolates in the same location, as well as their choice of the new name, which is Trent Kinney’s family name.

The logo, designed by Trent, has a simple upscale look in ivory, chocolate and gold and features a modernist allusion to a chocolate bean. The familiar well-known and well-liked chocolates will still be offered. "We want to stress to our customers that even though our name and look is changing, the quality products and service will remain the same as they have come to expect from the local chocolate shop," Steve Kinney said.

The Kinneys made headlines in April when they purchased Catherine's Chocolates this spring, finalizing the transfer of ownership right before Easter. Trent and Steve met while serving in the Army and stationed in Afghanistan. Steve has retired, and Trent is serving his last tour of duty and will retire in the fall. Steve Kinney grew up in Pittsfield. Kathy Sinico worked closely with the couple prior to the finalization of the sale.

The business makeover also will include a domain and website where Mielke's confections will continue to be available for purchase online. The chocolate shop will remain in the same location, and while outside has been painted dark chocolate brown, the interior has no changes yet. Plans to remodel the inside are in the works, but not immediate. While maintaining Catherine's Chocolate's time-honored hand-made traditions and offerings, some new hand-made products are available, such as Mielke Confections "Turtle Delights" made with the classic "Nut Delight" candy base with the addition of whole pecans, caramel and chocolate drizzle in the shape of a turtle. "We are constantly experimenting with new creations and hope to continue to add more to our menu in the near future," Steve Kinney said.
