Halifax is now home to a renowned chocolate store that is run by a family from Syria, who arrived in Canada as refugees in 2016. Peace by Chocolate is opening its first chocolate boutique in Halifax this Friday. After more than four years of operating outside of Antigonish, owner Tareq Hadhad says his family is honoured and proud to open its first grand boutique at the new Queen’s Marque complex. “It’s been a long way. It’s been a really interesting journey for our family and honestly we are so excited,” says Hadhad. With COVID-19 restrictions still in place, Hadhad says it’s a bit disappointing to not have a big ribbon-cutting event but the family will have one once it’s safer to do so.
