As far as she can remember, Quest has always had an inclination towards chocolate. Being caught countless times over the years sneaking chocolate away and giggling, she decided to finally do something useful with her undying obsession and study this decadent “food of the gods”. After being face deep for two years in the Professional Chocolatier Certificate Program at George Brown here in Toronto, Canada, she now happily calls herself an alum.
Like a proud mama bear, Quest gets intense enjoyment in preparing tasty treats for others to savour. She often has drooly dreams of making unique confections that will make people feel special.
“because of the small joys my treats would bring to others,I found myself with a new life purpose awakening in me.”
As someone who’s had a lifelong struggle with anxiety and depression, Quest knows all-too-well how impactful the small things can be. She explains, “because of the small joys my treats would bring to others, I found myself with a new life purpose awakening in me.”
She started this business with the hopes to bring happy moments to those across the full spectrum of “sadness is my life story” to “gulp … I can’t go outside!” to “I feel meh” to “I’m walking on sunshine” and everything in between.
So naturally, love is at at the core of COCO XO. From unique confections, to fun packaging, right down to personalized and hand-written notes, it’s all done with delightful affection. Why? simply because Quest feels that every person on the receiving end deserves to feel loved.
