Jean Paul Hevin opened “Le Petit Boule” in Paris in 1988, to be followed by another in 1990 and yet another, complete with a tea room, seven years later. Having received a confectioner’s vocational certificate, Jean Paul worked as an apprentice at both the Intercontinental Hotel and the Nikko Hotel before opening his own shop. Currently, the chocolatier manufactures fine French chocolate creations from a total of 11 stores, with four in Paris, two in Hong Kong and five in Japan.
Ironically, Hevin originally aspired to be an electrical engineer. Through a twist of fate however, he missed the application date for the school he had planned to attend and decided instead to pursue a career as a confectioner. What a pity it would have been if Jean Paul had pursued his initial interest and the world would have missed out on his delicious and elegant French chocolate creations.
