We are a social entrepreneurial venture created by the Boys & Girls Club of Rochester.
We serve gourmet ice cream and candy. All profits support program funding and workforce development for our local Boys & Girls Club.
A portion of the revenue generated by The Chocolate Twist will allow for expansion of services and programs for youth in Rochester. The Mission of Boys & Girls Club of Rochester is “to empower all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring community members”. This venture will allow that Mission to reach more children with more impactful programming.
Club members take an active role in the day-to-day operations and management of The Chocolate Twist. They participate in purchasing, marketing, bookkeeping, and other business functions. Skills learned will include customer service, money management, career exploration, and business acumen.
