Tcho chocolate has been a huge success since it was launched by Wired magazine founder Louis Rosetto in 2005. So much so that the business has outgrown its 29,000-square-foot headquarters at Pier 17. On the heels of announcing the appointment of a new CEO on Monday, the company announced it will move operations to a 49,000-square-foot facility in Berkeley. The SF location will close mid-March, and the business plans to open in Berkeley sometime in April. The new CEO, Andrew Burke, told the SF Business Times that Tcho's revenue has increased from from $4.5 million at the beginning of 2013 to $6 million this year. But don't worry, there are still plenty of places to buy Tcho in San Francisco, including Whole Foods and Starbucks. Plus, the company is on the hunt for a storefront SF.
