GEORGIA TODAY spoke to Maya Jimsheleishvili, the Founder of Ambience, to find out more about the brand.
‘AMBIENCE’ ALWAYS OFFERS A WIDE SELECTION OF ACCESSORIES. WHAT SPECIAL ITEMS CAN CUSTOMERS CURRENTLY DISCOVER WHILE VISITING?
We always please our customers with a special collection for the New Year. We have a large selection of beautiful Christmas trees and collectible Christmas toys from leading brands in Europe. Every year, we try to create an even more diverse environment and delight our loyal guests with pleasant novelties. In our store, both adults and children feel like they’re in a magical fairy tale and at are at least temporarily able to let go of their worries.
IT’S A DIFFICULT TIME FOR BUSINESSES. HOW DID THE PANDEMIC AFFECT YOUR BUSINESS, AND HOW DO YOU MANAGE TO ENSURE SAFETY STANDARDS IN-STORE?
The difficulties for ‘Ambience’ started even before the pandemic. In January 2020, a fire broke out in the store, causing a lot of damage. Then the coronavirus came along, which significantly hindered our recovery process. Yet, the ‘Ambience’ team managed to overcome all the difficulties and come back with even more diverse products and pleasant surprises for its loyal customers. Safety norms at our store are maximally observed. In our fairly large space we can easily maintain distancing, and we naturally look forward to the time when the pandemic will pass and we can all return to the usual rhythm of life.
TELL US ABOUT AMBIENCE’S NEW CHOCOLATE LINE. AND ALSO WHAT YOU HAVE IN MIND FOR THE FUTURE.
The idea of producing chocolate was born spontaneously. I wanted to create bars with different designs, and took chocolate-making courses to study the field thoroughly. Distinguished chef Davit Kurashvili helped me to make the idea a reality, knowing exactly what kind of product I wanted to create and getting fully involved in the process. We’ve done some interesting experiments together, and I think we’ve achieved good results in a short time. We use only premium quality Belgian, French and Italian raw materials, and create distinctive flavors with the greatest love and attention.
I think our customers feel that. I’m overjoyed when they keep coming back to buy our chocolate bars once they taste them. Apart from this, we have some exciting future plans. Hopefully, we’ll overcome all the difficulties and will implement them successfully in the near future.
