NAPLES, Fla. - One of Phillip Fincher's clients had a contact at the Grammy awards and through word of mouth, they were able to get their chocolates into the hands of music's biggest stars. Fincher has gone from crunching numbers to melting chocolate.
"It's a natural transition to go from practicing as a tax and estate planning attorney and CPA," said Fincher. "I've actually had a lot of attorneys come in and make the comment to me that they wish they could leave what they were doing and go do something they enjoyed."
The chocolatier now spends his time at Royal Palm Chocolates. His family owned and operated business was recently selected to have its creations enjoyed by the who's who in the world of music. Dozens of gifts baskets were over-nighted to California for last night's Grammy Foundation event.
"I guess it's somewhat of a credit to our committment to quality and excellence," said Fincher.
And they were so popular, they are awaiting an invitation to return in the gift bags at the big show.
"It was our understanding that they actually pitched it to management for the Grammy awards and we'd be really excited for that opportunity as well."
