Champion of the Pennsylvania Wilds 2023 Business of the Year Award Winner: Highland Chocolates – Wellsboro, Tioga County

Business of the Year Award honors a new or existing business that has taken bold steps to grow their business in a way that embodies what it means to marry conservation and economic development and to offer an authentic experience or product to visitors and residents. Highland Chocolates has been named the recipient of the 2023 PA Wilds Business of the Year Champion Award. Highland Chocolates is undergoing a remodeling project many years in the making. The new facility will allow for tours, as well as a window to view confection making when tours are not available. This will make Highland Chocolates a destination for tourists to our area.  Highland Chocolates makes amazing chocolate, but it does so much more than that. In partnership with Partners In Progress, Highland Chocolates empowers individuals with disabilities to succeed! Highland Chocolates truly is “Extraordinary Chocolates by Extraordinary People.”

“There were so many amazing nominations for Champion Awards this year, making it challenging for the review committee,” said Beth Pellegrino, PA Wilds Center Board Member and Outreach Committee chair. “The theme of this year’s dinner is ‘Celebrating Decades of Conservation and Innovation,’ and these winners do just that.  The tenacity, drive and passion of our 2023 Champions is to be commended! They have each made something special possible – and we are eager to celebrate their achievements on July 27!”
