Black Entrepreneur Used His Grandmother’s Secret Recipe to Launch His Own Chocolate Brand

Meet Patrick Glanville, founder of 3 Some Chocolates, one of the only such Black-owned and operated companies in the country. As a chocolatier and culinary artist, his company fulfills their clients’ chocolate fantasies by combining three flavors into one, offering it in a pack of three and calling it a “3 Some” that can be shared with everyone.

Based in Mount Vernon, NY, and launched in 2017 by both Patrick and his wife, Kristin, their company has been raising the bar in the chocolate industry by introducing new and enticing flavors never seen before by chocolate lovers. To date, they’ve sold and shipped their products all over the United States and the world.

An early start

 Patrick says that he began working on his craft at the age of 10 with his grandmother, who taught him how to cook, temper chocolate, and create many other delicacies. One of her favorite treats was her secret family recipe for her “Jerk Chocolates” which she passed down to Patrick.

 Born and raised in Southside Jamaica, Queens, Patrick eventually perfected his craft by becoming a certified chocolatier. He and his wife both studied at the Barry Callebaut Chocolate Academy in Lebbeke, Belgium. 

Sweet success

 In just three years, his company has sold more than 400,000 units, garnered a plethora of five-star ratings, and has accumulated over 75,000 customers and counting. His trademarked products are not sold in retail stores, but only on his company’s platforms.

 Patrick’s wife, Kristin, is the CFO/Co-CEO of the company. She has a background in business administration, operations, and finance, and has worked to build and protect the brand and help the brand reach its true potential.

 On the web site at, customers will find exclusive items such as their sweet and spicy trademarked Jerk Chocolate Bites, their limited edition Ruby and White Red Velvet Cookie bar, and an array of delicious truffles such as their Coquito Truffles and Cognac Truffles.

Investment opportunities available

 In their plans to expand their offerings, they have launched a CrowdFunding campaign where they have already obtained many investors who look forward to becoming a part of their chocolate journey.
