With investors’ support, JOJO’s brought on a new CEO and a new Head of Sales.

Sterling Jones, Co-Founder, will be taking on the role of Chief Growth Officer. When asked about this expansion he stated, “To have someone of Jeff’s caliber want to come and be a part of Team JOJO’s says a lot about what we are building here. John’s sales expertise, and Jeff’s operational knowledge are key to JOJO’s long-term success.”

This additional capital will enable the company to keep up with the increase in demand for JOJO’s Chocolate. The company has grown rapidly, expanding its presence and product offerings with new retailers such as Target, Albertsons, Costco, BJ’s, and others.

To keep pace with demand, JOJO’s has plans to release additional flavors and new products in 2023.

About JOJO’s Chocolate:

JOJO's was started by Momma Jojo and her son Sterling in 2014, after she was diagnosed with breast cancer. During her fight, she created a delicious dark chocolate snack that satisfied her daily sugar cravings. In 2019, Jojo passed away after battling cancer for 7 years. Her love of chocolate and bringing people together lives on through JOJO’s mission to spread love and fight sugar.  

JOJO’s Chocolate is an indulgent and healthy chocolate snack that satisfies cravings without the added sugar and unhealthy additives. Using only the highest quality ingredients, JOJO's Chocolate has become a favorite among health-conscious consumers who refuse to compromise on taste. JOJO’s is on a mission to reduce America’s sugar intake by 50% and to challenge the way people view chocolate.
