Daniel Zahir, Creative Director and Chocolatier of Legendary Edelweiss Chocolates in Beverly Hills, is a featured guest this week for the special Valentine’s Episode of the Impact Podcast with John Shegerian. The show is hosted by Shegerian, Co-Founder and Executive Chairman of ERI, the nation’s leading fully integrated IT and electronics asset disposition provider and cybersecurity-focused hardware destruction company.
Edelweiss Chocolates, a fifth-generation, family-run chocolatier, has hand-crafted its iconic confections in the heart of Beverly Hills since 1942. Zahir has enjoyed 20 years of growth and learning at Edelweiss Chocolates and is proud to commit to ushering in a new era of tradition that will take Edelweiss full-steam ahead into another 79 years in Beverly Hills.
Zahir was interviewed by Shegerian about Edelweiss’ history – including the classic ‘chocolate conveyor belt scene’ from the "I Love Lucy" show – and shared a behind-the-scenes video tour of where the chocolates are made at Edelweiss, along with several tips and suggestions for Valentine’s Day, one of the busiest weeks of the year for makers of fine chocolates.
"Being interviewed by John Shegerian for the podcast was like sitting down with an old friend," said Zahir. "As a host, John was very thoughtful about the questions he asked and he allowed me the opportunity to guide the conversation with my story yet always managed to point me in the direction to make the biggest impact possible. It was a pleasure and an honor to have been included as a guest on Impact. On a personal note, John has also been a customer of our business for years and his seemingly boundless energy and internal light brightens our staff’s mood every time he walks through the door."
"Edelweiss makes my favorite chocolates in the world," said Shegerian. "It was an honor to have Danny on our show to share the story of his family’s wonderful business and how they stand apart and make so many people happy. He is the ideal guest for the Impact Podcast to share ideas and suggestions for Valentine’s Day this year! Plus, our audience is sure to love the stories of Edelweiss’ historic past and exciting future."
