Brian Wallace, Endorfin Foods

Just when fair trade, organic chocolatier Endorfin Foods had solidified a niche in the competitive industry of gourmet chocolate, the coronavirus pandemic threatened to spoil the business. In this podcast, Founder and chocolate crafter Brian Wallace talks about the complexities of chocolate making and the marketplace and how Endorfin Foods weathered and survived COVID's impact on retail distribution.

In addition to insights on how other companies can adapt to the new normal, Brian explains how a Fundbox line of credit helped provide his business with the buying power to take advantage of a pivotal opportunity to grow.
