Middle Tennessee native Scott Witherow offers the perfect holiday gift for kids of all ages. The trained chef-turned-chocolatier founded Olive & Sinclair Chocolate Co. in East Nashville this year. Already, Nashvillians are lining up like excited schoolchildren for a taste of his delectable fare. Witherow claims that his sweets are created “in the new old fashioned way.” He begins with “an old Mexican style of grinding” and completes the process with modern European technologies. The branding for Witherow’s product has brought him national and regional awards—his charming vintage logo adds to the appeal of his nostalgic goodies. Witherow hopes to bring the excitement back to the craft and experience of artisan chocolate. He summarizes his business philosophy: “We want to make it the way chocolate used to be.”
