After growing up in Germany, the No. 1 country in the world for chocolate-making, Seyhan Bozkurt developed a sophisticated palette for chocolate. His dad worked for a chocolate company, so they ate fine chocolate on a regular basis, and after moving to the U.S., he couldn’t find good German chocolate here. So, he decided to create it himself and launched Deziria Chocolate in Salt Lake City.

One of the secrets to creating Deziria Chocolate is that it’s made using all-natural premium ingredients, like cocoa butter. They also source their cacao beans from Ghana, and after researching on the best beans, they’re also looking to add beans from Costa Rica later this year. Seyhan says the difference is in the taste of Deziria Chocolate and the price point, which is a major reason for his company’s growth. He’s also building on the idea of chocolate as a source of happiness for people with studies that demonstrate how it boosts morale and reduces stress.

With Deziria Chocolate, Seyhan created a product he believes in. In just 18 months of launching his business, you can find Deziria Chocolate in over 100 stores in Utah, and they’ll be holding weekly tastings that will be announced via their social media pages. He plans to expand his chocolate line and increase his employee base.
