Grateful for how far she has come from starting out as a hobby of making chocolates, Rector-Rankin says she still delights in pleasing the appetites of chocolate-lovers.

“Chocolates are my specialty,” she said confirming that the unique tastes and designs of CCM products are developed for total customer satisfaction. Her flavored chocolates are dipped to cover commonly used snack items, like cookies, wafers, pretzels, popcorn, marshmallows and strawberries.

Satisfied with her Penn Hills location where a complete build-out of the space took place, Rector-Rankin says she is grateful to organizations like the Christian Evangelistic Economic Development group which aligned her with six different businesses to help in the construction.

“We are pleased to provide her with the services she needed,” said Rufus Idris the group’s executive director. “Rhonda knows what she wants and we are designed to provide the technical assistance services like business plan development, accounting and blue print services that she needed. We were particularly excited to help her secure the space on Penn Avenue and can’t wait for her to open next month.”

“This continues to be an exhilarating time for CCM,” confessed Rector-Rankin. “Expanding to East Liberty with all the growth and development taking place in the community is a blessing. Spreading out into other areas is a goal and I am glad to be able to provide additional employment opportunities.”

The grand opening for the 5943 Penn Ave. Creamy Creations and More coffeehouse and café is scheduled for 11 a.m. Aug. 10.
