Peace by Chocolate Open Boutique at Queen’s Marque in Halifax on March 5, 2021
1741 Lower Water Street
Halifax, NS suite 166
Halifax, Nova Scotia - February 2021 - Chocolate makes happiness! Peace by Chocolate started as the result of people and passions coming together to advocate for a cause. The company is expanding that passion to open its first of its kind chocolate boutique at The Queen's Marque in the heart of Halifax’s waterfront.
“This province welcomed our family with open arms in 2016, and we are honoured to continue our mission. Antigonish will remain home to the factory of Peace by Chocolate and our first chocolate shop.” explains Tareq Hadhad, Founder and CEO of Peace by Chocolate. “At the beginning of this pandemic, when everybody was thinking, ‘this is the end of the world,’ we were thinking, ‘this is the start of a new phase’. The pandemic has had negative impacts on so many businesses but we learned new techniques during this crisis about creating our best mindset to face it. It’s time to turn these challenging times into ways to grow.”
The new chocolate boutique is set to open its doors at Queen’s Marque in Halifax to continue the family’s journey of spreading the message of peace. The store reflects the Syrian heritage of the Hadhad family. In addition to their traditional products, Peace by Chocolate has created a new line of artisan chocolate, handmade in Antigonish. The chocolate boutique adds 40 new chocolate flavours, decadent hot chocolate, coffee and handmade fine pastry. The shop is currently developing products and partnerships with local businesses across Nova Scotia.
“Queen’s Marque is the story of a modern Nova Scotia and what is possible here, and there is no better representation of that story than Peace by Chocolate,” says Scott Armour McCrea, CEO of The Armour Group. “We are delighted to welcome Tareq Hadhad and Peace by Chocolate as one of the first retail tenants to open at Queen’s Marque.”
“We will always be thankful for the incredible community support of Nova Scotians, after all, ‘one Peace won’t hurt’.'' explains Hadhad.
