Berries by Quicha, a shop that specializes in chocolate-covered strawberries, is opening a second location in Federal Hill.
Owner LaQuicha Brown said she's hoping to have the new location, at 920 Light St., open for business by the end of the year, depending on permit approval from the city. The storefront was previously home to Hannah Nails & Spa.
Berries by Quicha offers custom chocolate-dipped strawberries in 17 flavors, and with a variety of colors and custom designs. Brown also makes strawberries stuffed with cheesecake filling or infused with vodka or tequila.
"We can make anything out of strawberries," she said.
Brown's first location, at the Best Western Plus Hotel & Conference Center at 5625 O'Donnell St., opened in 2014. The original shop will remain open, but the new shop in Federal Hill will allow Brown to operate with expanded hours.
The East Baltimore location offers walk-in hours Thursday through Saturday and call-ahead orders Tuesday and Wednesday; the Federal Hill shop will be open six days a week with walk-in availability each day.
Brown said she had hoped to open on her birthday, Nov. 19, but her opening has been delayed by the city's permitting process.
