Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory Shows Sweet Support for Houston Food Bank


Houston, TX. – Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, Inc. delivered more than 10,000 pounds of chocolate to the Houston Food Bank just in time for Valentine’s Day.


Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory made this donation to the Houston Food Bank as a way to bring a smile to Houstonians in need and still recovering from Hurricane Harvey. An international franchisor of chocolate retail stores, with locations in and around Houston, the Colorado-based company felt the impact of Harvey first hand through its local franchisees. “After seeing the devastation our store owners and their employees faced last year, we knew we had to do something to bring a smile to Houston,” commented Donna Coupe, Vice President of Franchise Support, “and what better way to do that than with chocolate?”

In addition to chocolate, RMCF is making a $10,000 donation to local organizations to help with the ongoing rebuilding and recovery efforts in Texas. “The effort is far from over and Houston still needs our support as they work to rebuild the community in the wake of Harvey.” Coupe said.
