Geneva Downtown Businesses Spreading Wings
All Chocolate Kitchen, C'est la Vie by Sylvie, Mossy Twig all expanding into new space.
Several Geneva downtown businesses are spreading their wings—and business at The Little Traveler is going great guns, thank you very much.
Business owner Mike Simon said last week that the All Chocolate Kitchen would be expanding into the Mossy Twig space.
Mossy Twig is expanding into the shops next door, with an address of 31 S. Third St.
Geneva Chamber of Commerce Communications Manager Laura Rush said the expansion trend is good news for the downtown overall.
"Obviously, when an existing business expands, it can only mean good things are happening for that business," she said. "Visitors are coming to Geneva, shopping, dining and lodging. It’s all very positive."
"So we have three Geneva businesses, Beaute by Sylvie, Mossy Twig, and All Chocolate Kitchen, two of which have been open only a year, deciding to expand. I think that's pretty cool, and a ringing endorsement of downtown Geneva's vitality," he said.
Speaking of which, there have been rumors flying around—more than a few from out of state—about The Little Traveler closing. Don't pay any attention.
"Absolutely no truth to the rumor about The Little Traveler, though I've been hearing it since I decided to close Merra-Lee," Simon said. "Business is good, and we had the best Festival of the Vine weekend we've had in many years."
