Chocolat Inn & Cafe: (Area of Blueprint Focus)

“There is a future in Appalachia because the seeds have been sown and much like our forefathers, we must be pioneers with visons only the brave can see. We are modern-day pioneers paving the way for a new era in Appalachia through technology and innovation with the best scenic backdrop anyone could ever ask for.”

"After 25 years in the coal industry I transitioned to the tech sector and am making a good living for my family.  SOAR inspired Bit Source, a software development company, 4 years ago, and without them I don't know where I would be right now.  When you support SOAR, you support the evolution of Appalachian industry.  This enables people like me to stay in the region."
