About Sir Chocolate

NO LONGER FRANCHISING

Sir Chocolate began as a one-man operation with only a single chocolate fountain. Since then, the company has expanded from a homebased business into a combination warehouse, kitchen and office. The lone fountain has grown into a mobile chocolate fountain cart made for special events, a retail outlet and fondue gift baskets. Franchisees have three options for running their business: catering, retail and a retail-vending cart.
