Joanne Mutter and JoJo CoCo
Hi, I’m Joanne and together with my husband Jay, we opened JoJo CoCo in 2012. The idea was born from my long history in retail, a love of chocolate and timing. The idea was always in my head to open my own store so when I was approaching 50, I thought, if we're going to do this, it should be now.
Why chocolate? My retail background includes clothing, fashion and furniture, no food. But chocolate has been part of my life forever. Ever since childhood it was my favourite treat. I would get so excited when packages arrived from my granny in Scotland, because I knew there would be chocolate in them!
