Indulge in the sweet success of a Chicago entrepreneur who acquired a candy factory to keep the city's chocolate-making legacy alive while creating jobs in her community. All of this is the brainchild and creativity of Chicago's own entrepreneur, Stephanie Hart, one of the very few African American women producing chocolate in Chicago on a large scale. She founded I Hart Corporation, which includes the Brown Sugar Bakery and Life is Sweet candy brands. Chicago was once the mecca of chocolate production but that changed with an exodus of chocolate factories. The name "Life is Sweet" describes Stephanie's experience living on Chicago's South Side.
