 Chocolate aIr is anything but your ordinary sweet shop. Lisa Isom, the owner, has been making chocolate for over twenty years. “Through a lot of prayer and hard work I was able to accomplish a huge dream of mine.” Lisa said.

On January 25, 2011 Chocolate aIr opened up their doors for business and haven’t slowed down since.

One of the busiest times of the year for this sweet shop is Valentine’s Day. Their two biggest sellers are turtles and chocolate covered strawberries especially for this holiday season.

“Last year we had people lined out the door the week of Valentine’s Day,” Lisa said. After tasting some of the sweets I don’t wonder why!

Opening this business was a huge risk for Lisa and her family, but they felt that they should pursue their dreams of owning their own shop. Through prayer, word of mouth, and Facebook, this is no longer a dream. It is their reality.

Chocolate aIr is located at 3306 Godfrey Road, Godfrey, IL. and is open Tuesday through Friday 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Saturday 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Call them  at (618) 593-6649.
