The Chocolate Nuthouse
Meet Pat Rohleder
Pat Rohleder began making chocolates thirty years ago as a hobby. She started selling them at an annual Christmas craft fair and was soon getting side requests throughout the rest of the year. Eventually, she had so many requests that she knew she would have to go into formal business. She obtained a business license and The Chocolate Nuthouse was born. Her chocolates have become so popular with the locals that she no longer sells them at craft fairs. Instead, they are available at several local retail stores and through private order.
One of the nicest things about doing business in a small, tight-knit community like Mackenzie is that word travels, so Pat hasn’t had to do a lot of advertising. Pat has lived here since she was a young child, so she has many relationships and connections, which also helps when you operate your own business. “Mackenzie has small town charm,” says Pat. She has been overwhelmed with the support that her business has received throughout the years, but then, locals have always been eager to support their own.
In addition to her chocolate making business, Pat also works full time. She doesn’t get many “days off” between the two. However, one thing she never fails to make a part of her day, no matter how full, is her morning walk with her dog. It gives her a chance to enjoy the Mackenzie outdoors and the peace and quiet of the morning before the busy workday begins.
