Chocolate Covered Strawberry Shop ‘Berries by Quicha’ Coming to Federal Hill

| December 16, 2016 | 1 Comments

LaQuicha Brown is bringing her second location of Berries by Quicha to Federal Hill. Brown started her business as a hobby, making chocolate covered strawberries for friends for Valentine’s Day, and it quickly grew after that. She opened her first location in the lobby of the Best Western Plus Hotel at the Baltimore Tavel Plaza three years ago, and is excited to open her second location before the end of the year at 920 Light St. in the former home of Hannah Nails Spa.

Berries by Quicha offers more than 17 flavors of chocolate covered and gourmet strawberries including Snickers, White Chocolate Swizzle, White Oreo, Bacon Berry, Dark Chocolate, and more, plus cheesecake strawberries, sugar free flavors, and yogurt covered strawberries. Customers can walk in and buy a strawberry for $2.59, or get discounted orders of a half dozen, dozen, or more.

Brown and her team, which is comprised of all family members, can also assemble custom orders for clients including 3D designs. Recent orders included Morgan State-themed strawberries, her alma mater, and strawberries that included a custom note asking friends to be in a bridal party. Berries by Quicha also offers chocolate covered strawberry bouquets.

All of the strawberries at Berries by Quicha come from local farms. She is hoping to add additional berries in the future like boysenberries and acai berries. Though the strawberries are for dessert, Brown will be educating customers on the health benefits of berries.

Brown eyed a second location for over a year, and fell in love with the space in Federal Hill. “I love the history, the foot traffic, and the eclectic mix of businesses,” she said. She also noted that she likes the close proximity to a lot of business and residents.

Berries by Quicha will be open Monday-Thursday from 12pm-7pm, and Friday and Saturday from 11am-11pm. It will most likely be closed on Sundays.
