Katrina Markoff, Vosges Haut-Chocolate

Sometimes it’s all about making a product that people love. And who doesn’t love sweets? At age seven, Katrina Markoff was already pleasing customers selling treats she made in her Easy Bake Oven. As she got older, she sold her creations to local stores and country clubs and was trained at Le Cordon Bleu, one of the world's best cooking schools. It’s no wonder she became a gourmet chocolate maker. Today, her company, Vosges Haut-Chocolate, sells over $17 million of her creative chocolate treats.
