This is the perfect time for you to start your own chocolatier shop business. Chocolate and candy business industry are earning more than 11 billion of revenue per year. Act now and sell different kinds of chocolates to earn YUMMY profit with chocolatier shop business idea.


    If you love eating chocolates and candies, then you will be surprised to know that this hobby can turn in to a big money-making venture. To start a chocolatier shop business, you will require a permit, protection, and retail license. Competition is very fierce in this industry. Research different chocolate shops in your area and niches they are offering, to sell delicious and more exclusive products.

    Moreover, there is a number of different options in the chocolate business. You can open a gourmet chocolate shop, or manufacture and sell your own organic chocolates and candies. Other options include chocolate café and chocolate gift shop. If you have a unique chocolate recipe and can carve out its own niche, you will gain an edge over market competition. You will have to meet the required quality standards of the local health department since you will be selling edibles. It is possible to start a chocolatier shop business from home to save some startup costs. However, it can be costly if you fail to meet the quality standards. Joint ventures with local wholesale dealers are important to save your investment costs.

    Use a smart marketing approach since competition is very high. Create a flagship website that you can promote through different social media channels such as Twitter, Facebook etc. Offer a special discount during holidays, such as Mother’s day, Valentine day etc. The best option is to sell chocolate to the general public. Ask your family and friends to spread the word. You can also distribute free samples to the neighborhood. Use coupon promotions to draw in customers. You can also offer wine, champagne, and a different dessert at your chocolate shop.

    We offer 3 complementary services to support you in the implementation of this business idea:  

    Service 1 | Pre-Studies 

    Start your journey with one of our three Pre-Studies if you are not yet fully sure about your project:  

    Option1. Project Pre-Study: You have a business idea or consider to import/export a new product, but you need a qualified second opinion? Business Titans checks your business idea or project for you and provides a detailed analysis on the opportunity, its risks, feasibility and profitability. 

    Option2. Pre-Opening Plan: Do you need to get an overview of the detailed steps to implement your project? Entrepreneurs who wish to have on the operational level a sound overview of the steps they need to take to set up their new venture or product should look also into this option. 

    Option3. Project Exposé: Do you need a professional presentation to introduce your project to a demanding audience? Successful entrepreneurs understand that the presentation of an idea is as important as the idea itself. The approach Business Titans is applying is to send always an appealing Exposé of the project before sharing further details. Only if there is a vivid interest that you feel among your audience, you should share confidential documents such as Pre-Studies, Business Plans, etc. 

    Service 2 | Business Planning 

    Option 1. Business Plan Consulting: You draft the Business Plan with our Guidance, we review and enhance the final version. Business Titans supports you to develop a Business Plan.

This version gets a Business Titans certification to be used for 3 years (as long as there will be no major changes on the Business Plan).

      Service 3 | Weekly Coaching 

      A Business Plan is (and should be) in a constant evolution. The more you get into your business environment, the more you are able to fine-tune it. However, the best Business Plan will not be more than a paper if you do not implement it in a disciplined and consistent way.

      • Option 3: 4-Weeks Package
