FOR CHOCOLATE MAKERS

Helping you work your chocolate magic.
CONSULTING 

 

I provide consulting and implementation services for the chocolate and culinary world, drawing on my 10 years of experience running the original Chocolate Tours businesses that I created across the US; my years of business mentoring, coaching, and networking; and my lifelong study of chocolate.

 

I can help you with your needs such as the following: 

 

  • product and brand development

  • ingredient sourcing 

  • supply chain optimization

  • distribution strategy and implementation

  • marketing and promotion, including brokering

  • customer loyalty program

  • employee training and motivation

  • growth strategies

  • opening new locations

  • blog ghost-writing

  • what else is not getting done, that needs to get done?

 

Consulting fees: $2,000/month, or a flat rate for your project, negotiable.
