Last week I posted about the Swiss Consulate in Kansas City. While preparing for our move to Zürich I discovered the Consulate is actually Andre's Chocolates, a business owned by the Swiss-American Bollier family.
When I ate in their restaurant the waitress informed me there is no longer a Swiss Consulate in Kansas City due to an illness in the family.
I am happy to report that the information was incorrect, as evidenced by the following e-mail I received from one of the family...
First of all I would like to thank you for kind words about not only Andre's but also the Bollier family. We always strive for excellence in everything we do.
I do have to make a correction on the information you were given while eating here at Andre's. Marcel Bollier was diagnosed with MS a number of years ago, but is dealing with it quite well.
The Swiss Consulate in Kansas City continues to exist and will continue until the Swiss government says other wise. I do realize this misunderstanding is not your fault. I simply thought you would want to know that Marcel is doing well and again thank you for your kind words.
