Learn About Schakolad Chocolate Factory Franchises
Imagine yourself being your own boss in this exciting business. Running an
upscale establishment and having fun while doing it! Schakolad Chocolate Factory
will help you achieve this. With more than 40 years of experience in the
chocolate manufacturing field, we will teach you in easy steps to make delicious
A Great History
The Schakolad concept is quite unique! Schakolad (pronounced shaq-oh-LAD)—a
combination of "Schaked" and "Chocolate"—is a name associated with three
generations of chocolate making. Baruch Schaked, founder of Schakolad, has been
a chocolatier since 1969 and mastered the art and science of chocolate making.
Carried on by his son, Edgar, Schakolad has now developed a time-tested, proven
business model and has begun franchising their unique system.
The Schakolad secret is both in their family recipe passed down three
Generations and in the art of handcrafting fine European-style chocolates on
premises using only the freshest ingredients.
A Unique Concept
Schakolad Chocolate Factory is a hands-on business—which means that the
chocolate is made, molded and sold at each location. It is as fresh as you can
get. The creamy, decadent flavors and divine aromas tell the story. As a
Schakolad chocolatier, we will teach you the pure art and specialized production
of chocolate confectionery. You will learn and master the techniques and skills
to create award winning truffles, exotic chocolate covered fruits,
mouth-watering clusters and an extensive line of exquisitely designed custom
Chocolate has historically been a reliable money-maker. There are no global
figures compiled, but US annual sales are estimated at $13 billion, and world
sales exceed $40 billion. Americans consume 12 lbs. of chocolates each year.
The Ideal Candidate
Schakolad is a hands-on business, both inside and outside the store. A
successful owner understands and is committed to superior customer service,
interacting within the community and an owner/operator mentality. Owners should
be outgoing, driven to succeed and detail oriented. Our corporate strategy
targets four markets so it is important that owners should either have
experience or have a natural ability for marketing and sales. The optimal
balance is 50% of time spent in the retail store and 50% outside the store on
marketing or sales calls.
The Ideal Location
An integral part of the success of a Schakolad store is to ensure that you are
located in a high traffic area. Ideal locations would be small towns, outdoor
shopping/lifestyle centers and high-profile grocery-anchored community shopping
centers, Typical stores range between 1,200 and 1,600 sq. feet.
Many Schakolad stores offer our specialty coffee beverages, Schako Latte™
(chocolate drinks made with real chocolate), the Schakolad Fondue Fountain
experience and fresh gelato that comes in up to 9 flavors. Our handmade
chocolate, beverages and gelato prove to be a great combination—drawing
customers throughout the day and into the early evening. We do recommend
creating a comfortable seating area with café tables and/or elegant sofas which
make it more attractive for customers to spend more time in the store enjoying
the Schakolad experience.
