Tahoe Production House Launches E-commerce Website for Lake Tahoe Chocolate Shop

By March 8, 2013March 16th, 2016Blog, Website Development + Design

Tahoe Production House is proud to announce our new website design for Lake Tahoe Chocolate Shop, South Lake Tahoe.

Lake Tahoe Chocolate Shop is South Lake Tahoe’s only locally owned, family operated chocolatier. All of their hand-crafted chocolate and fudge is made on site at their South Lake Tahoe retail locations.

The Chocolate Shop offers a huge array of chocolate creations such as their signature favorites like Dark Chocolate Covered Bacon, S’mores, Tahoe Bark, Handmade English Toffee, Chocolate & Caramel Dipped Pretzels, Chocolate Gummy Worms and so much more.  They also specialize in finely crafted Truffles, Fudge and Caramels.

In the past two and a half years, The Chocolate Shop has opened two new retail locations, one at inside the Montbleu Resort and another at Stateline near Dart Beverage.

The owner, Doug Rousse, felt the final step in his growing retail business was to make his chocolate available for online purchase and delivery anywhere in the United States by creating a brand-new website design for the business.

Tahoe Production House chose to build Lake Tahoe Chocolate Shop’s new website on WordPress to help keep costs affordable for the Chocolate Shop new website. The beauty of using a Content Management System website platform like WordPress is that there are endless third party developers and applications available for free or at very low costs to make a simple website very robust and user friendly. We integrated a popular third party e-commerce platform into the WordPress website framework to enable the Chocolate Shop to sell their merchandise online, easily update their inventory, track and fulfill their sales and more with no need for the Doug’s staff to understand backend html or css coding.

Additionally, by choosing a Content Management System for the new website design, Doug and his staff have the ability to make simple updates to website pages and mange and publish their own blogs without having to re-hire a “webmaster” every time they want to make simple changes… thus keeping the long-term costs of website management low.
