About Us

Uwe Kuester is the owner and operator of Chocolaterie Fackelmann and The Schnitzel Parlour, which features traditional German food. He and his wife, Beate, spend much of their time in the kitchen but they love it and as Uwe says " with food, friends and family comes together."

Even though they grew up in Frankenberg/Eder in Germany and later moved close to Frankfurt Germany, they consider Fredericton home. They have been in the Fredericton area since moving to Canada in 2000.

Though owning a small business keeps them busy, this couple still does what it can to help the community. They have helped the community by volunteering at the food bank and at the soup kitchen but have recently taken a break as with moving and expanding the business to it’s new location has been time consuming.

Volunteer work isn't the only thing this couple likes to do in their spare time. in the spring of 2008, Uwe felt the call to spread the Gospel through music. With the help of a couple friends, Jason Farris and Beverley Richard, they formed the gospel group 4 His Glory. Roger Cormier took over Jason's position in the group. Uwe says "We have the same taste in music, we have the same desire. We are all Christians and we want to show people what the Lord is doing in our lives and how He is working in His miracle ways.” 4 His Glory released their first CD in the Fall of 2010 and their second CD "The Love of God" in the fall of 2014.
