The Chocolate Crisis Center Story

The Chocolate Crisis condition was inspired* by real-life events.

At a lookout in Rocky Mountain National Park, co-creators Lisa Heppner and JC Bourque observed a woman frantically digging through her belongings and screaming (OK, whimpering loudly) for help. Mercy Flight was quick to the scene, rushing the women to a local critical care unit. While following up on the lady's condition, they discovered she had experienced a full-blown CHOCOLATE CRISIS–her supply had run out and she was nowhere near a source of supply.

Recognizing a great need when they saw one, Lisa and JC paid off the woman's emergency transportation debt and seized the day to bring faster and more cost-effective relief to chocotillions of chocolate addicts everywhere.

The Chocolate Crisis Center was born.

* We said, "inspired."

Lisa Heppner and JC Bourque are owners of Denver-based creative agency Heppner & Bourque, Inc.
