    DOVE CHOCOLATE DISCOVERIES™ launched in February 2007 as one of the latest ventures from Mars, Incorporated. Now, a global leader in chocolate, Mars roots goes back to the kitchen. In the 1880'S, when Frank Mars was a young boy, his mother taught him to hand-dip chocolate. With his wife, Ethel, Frank started a home candy-making business in Tacoma, Washington, that eventually grew into Mars, Inc., a world-wide industry leader in chocolate confections. Going back to its direct-selling heritage, Mars created DOVE CHOCOLATE DISCOVERIES™. Since then, the Chocolatier sales force has taken off. There are now Chocolatiers in 48 states. With over 100 years of candy-making experience behind us, DOVE CHOCOLATE DISCOVERIES™ is dedicated to creating the ultimate chocolate experience - in the comfort of your own home, providing an opportunity to share some sweet moments with family and friends. Plus, as a Chocolatier, you're walking in the door with respect and recognition. What could be sweeter than that!

DOVE has been a favorite premium chocolate brand for decades, and our new exclusive at-home line of products offers the same fine tradition of quality and value. Welcome to DOVE Chocolate Discoveries. I am thrilled you have accepted my invitation to indulge. My name is Jenna Milkovits and I started my DOVE Chocolate Discoveries business in April 2007. In just a few short months, I built an incredible team of Chocolatiers, who I feel blessed to have met and befriended. I currently have over 100 team members. These women come from all backgrounds and from all over the country. They were all looking for the same idea in life ... be your own boss, set your own hours and make a phenominal income, while only working part-time from their home. AND, they LOVED DOVE CHOCOLATE!! Definitely a pre-requisite to do this business (lol). I work from home around my husband's wacky work schedule and also around my 7 year old and 4 year old sons. I have the freedom to work as little or as much as my schedule allows. I love that I can take off ANYTIME I want! I love meeting new people and this was the perfect outlet to make great friends and get the opportunity to 'party' at work. Everyone's dream, right? My job, in a nutshell, is to bring happiness to others and I am having such a GREAT time doing it!! I'd love to show you how YOU can have this freedom too!
