Chocolate isn’t just for Halloween, Valentine’s Day, and Easter. In fact, World Chocolate Day is coming up on July 7th. In honor of this occasion, consider opening your own chocolate franchise this summer. Chocolate makes a great treat for people of all ages when it’s warm out. Learn more about why you should think about running this type of franchise.
Put a Chocolate Spin on Traditional Summer Treats
People often turn to cold treats, such as ice cream and popsicles, to help them cool off when it’s hot out. Instead of heading to the local ice cream shop, have them head to your chocolate shop by offering chocolate ice cream and gelato. These tasty and refreshing chocolate items make great summer treats for young and old. Keep in mind that you can offer other flavors at your franchise as well, as long as you’re providing customers with high-quality, handcrafted ice cream and gelato.
Offer Chocolate Movie Snacks
During summer when the kids are out of school, some families have movie nights at home. Some towns also offer movies under the stars where they show outdoor movies on a big screen. Many drive-in movie theaters are also open during the summer months. Families and other customers can stock up on chocolate snacks to enjoy while watching movies this summer. Your franchise can offer snacks that are easy to eat during movies, such as chocolate-covered pretzels and chocolate nut clusters.
Sign Up for Local Festivals and Events
The summer months are often filled with local festivals and events in many towns and cities, including food festivals, arts festivals, carnivals, and street fairs. This is an ideal opportunity to sell your chocolate treats and gain more customers. Sign up as a vendor for festivals and events in your area. Offer delicious treats for all ages, such as chocolate truffles and chocolate-covered almond toffee, or delight kids with chocolate candy apples and chocolate fudge.
