Meet the Woman Behind Downtown Birmingham's Most Heavenly Chocolates
For Chocolata owner Kathy D'Agostino, owning a chocolate shop was written in the stars. The celestial-themed storefront opened on Second Avenue North in Birmingham this past August, but it was fated long before.
D'Agostino's love affair with chocolate began at age 15 when she took a temporary job at a chocolate shop in her hometown of Jacksonville, Florida. Ten thousand wrapped chocolate Pharaoh heads later, D'Agostino had herself a long-term gig.
