When Tasty Image opens later this month in the Westfield Montgomery Mall, Bethesda and Potomac residents will have a new option for personalized gift-giving.
The franchise’s first Maryland store will open on the lower level of Montgomery Mall Dec. 21, according to Mercedes Bendeck, the store’s senior catering specialist, and offers an assortment of chocolate boxes and personalized chocolate products. In addition to catering and gift options, Bendeck says the store will have enough space for in-house parties.
“Our specialty is the personalized gifts – really putting your name on it,” she said.
Edible color photos on chocolate lollipops, gift boxes and coloring chocolates are some of the more popular items the store offers, Bendeck said, and she believes the product line is well-suited to Montgomery County and Bethesda in particular.
“We have a lot of families in this area, and the niche of people in the Bethesda area are unique in the way they do birthday parties and events, and I think we really cater to that,” Bendeck said.
The store was originally scheduled to open mid-November, but Hurricane Sandy postponed the opening for several weeks, Bendeck said.
“We just can’t wait to open as soon as we can,” Bendeck said.
