Frances and Ginger  Park

Three decades ago sisters Frances and Ginger Park lost their father to a sudden and premature death. Comforting themselves with chocolate while trying to think of a business they could start — and work in together — the sisters had an epiphany. A chocolate-drenched epiphany, and the resulting business, which they opened in downtown Washington, D.C. in 1984, was a boutique store called Chocolate Chocolate.

Now, more than 27 years later, the Park sisters and their store are well-known and much-beloved in the nation’s capital, not just for theie decadently-delicious chocolate but for the sense of family they have built among their staff and customers.

Now Ginger and Frances Park have written a memoir, a confection for the soul, as it were, called — appropriately enough — “Chocolate Chocolate.”
