RENT CHOCOLATE FOUNTAIN — BEST HOME BUSINESS
In this article, I want to tell you about the idea of home business, as renting a chocolate fountain. To begin with, let’s see what it is and “what it eats” ).
So, the fountain is a bowl in which there is chocolate, and a set of cascades (tower) on which it flows. Depending on the purpose of the device, the bowl can hold from 1 to 12 kilograms or more of chocolate, and the tower can consist of two or more cascades and have a total height of 40 cm with the bowl. ( small household fountains with a volume of not more than 1 kg.) to 150 cm ( large professional models ). The size of the fountain depends on how many people it can be designed, for example, if the celebration for 30-40 guests — suitable small devices, 2-3 kg. If the number of guests is more than a hundred, in this case, you need a fountain for 6-8 kg. of chocolate.
Where they are used?
In recent years, chocolate fountains have become quite popular and widespread. They are very popular primarily at weddings ( more than 60-70% of all orders fall on weddings ), as well as corporate parties, birthdays, especially children’s, and other celebrations. Also, in recent years, the fountains began to be placed simply in crowded places — on the main streets, embankments, shopping centers, exhibition halls, etc. If in the first case the payment is charged for the rental of the device, then in the second — for each individual portion of chocolate.
What do you need to start your own business?
The most important investment is of course the fountain itself. Since most of the orders is primarily a wedding, we recommend to pay attention to the device which will be designed for about 80-130 people, this will fit the fountains height of 60-80 cm and a volume of 6-10 kg of chocolate. I advise you to pay attention only to professional models, models for household use can be significantly cheaper, but, firstly, the volume they have is much less, secondly — they are not designed for long-term non-stop operation, and thirdly — they are less reliable, and this is very important, because it will be very pleasant if the fountain breaks during the celebration. The price of professional models specified size starts from 500.e. In addition to the fountain you will need a specialized chocolate for fountains, it is more liquid than usual and is made in the form of small drops or disks, which greatly simplifies the robot with it.

Take for example the case of renting a fountain with 6 kg of chocolate. The cost will be: chocolate, roughly 10-12 in.e. Kg + utensils + transport costs = total, approximately 80 have.e. Market rent starts from 120-140 $. Profits in average from 50 have.e. not bad considering that you need to spend only 5-6 hours.
