Splendid Oaks Chocolates opening

Chicagoan Kevin DeVries, who studied entrepreneurship at Baylor University, is applying his training and sweet tooth to opening a chocolate shop.

His Splendid Oaks Chocolates is taking space at 1020 Franklin Ave., in the building also housing the Milo All Day restaurant.

“We are hoping to have our grand opening on the first Friday of October,” DeVries said by email.

The nearby presence of Balcones Distilling, Milo All Day, Waco Cha and Alpha Omega makes the neighborhood appealing, he said.

“I have been involved in collaborations with Balcones in the past and hope to continue those in the future,” DeVries said. “I am also hopeful about partnering with (Milo) on some desserts to serve at the restaurant.”

Chocolates produced at Splendid Oaks Chocolates are handmade with premium ingredients to make the best fillings possible, he said. The most popular flavors are apple pie and the whiskey, he said.
