Cocoa Mill Chocolate Company owners, Laura de Maria and Jan Hathorn purchased the business from its original owner in July, 2006. Both women grew up being part of family-owned businesses, Laura's family had factories that made men's slacks and Jan grew up on a large dairy farm that remains a working family farm today. Mike Mayo was hired as the chocolatier, first working as an apprentice chocolate maker, then attending school for certification as a professional candy maker. Mike is the over-seer of daily kitchen operations and is the creative genius behind our award-winning chocolates.

As business grew, Sarah Mayo, Mike's wife (and Laura's daughter) was brought on as Retail Manager. Her position has now changed to include management of our wholesale division and webmaster.

We are a typical, small, family business. Each one of us can be found answering phones, taking orders, packaging candy boxes, making bank deposits, and/or stirring caramel. We love our company, enjoy working together, and are looking forward to a sweet future for Cocoa Mill.
