The Shoppe Girls

chocfountain Hi everybody, thanks for joining us on our very first blogging journey! The Chocolate Fountain Shoppe (TCFS) has been up and running for close to 4 years now and we’ve decided to venture into the world of social networking….that’s right blogging! Feel free to send ideas our way on what you would like to see us talk about.  Every month, we will be featuring new and exciting discussions, specials and we ask for your feedback and new suggestions to help us cater to you – bigger and better.

This month, we really wanted you to get to know us and what we do. We are Sandy and Mindy and have been inseparable sister-friends for over 12 years. We’ve always had a passion for delectable desserts and high quality sweets, so after a year of painstaking research we took the plunge and road tripped to the States to purchase our perfect, shiny fountains. What started off as a charming Chocolate Fountain Company grew within a year to include high quality, decadent dessert options. And today we can comfortably cater events of up to 1200 guests and can confidently promise that everyone will absolutely LOVE our sweet ending to your perfect night.

The Chocolate Fountain Shoppe has had a great start this year. Our February wedding show at the Toronto Congress Centre was a huge success, as always. We were especially excited this year because our TCFS booth finally received a much needed and long overdue makeover which we just adored! We had a great turn out, and needless to say, the Belgian milk chocolate by Barry Callebaut was definitely the popular choice for our clients yet again this year. It’s actually our favorite too! – Especially with pineapple!

Since the show, we have been busy bees with client consultations and tastings! Here we get to meet some great couples and families who bring a natural flair of excitement when they come to meet us. Wedding planning can be stressful, but the dessert planning is nothing less than a delightful experience! Especially when you get to take home the desserts; talk about a sweet deal! We especially enjoy this part of our business because it gives us a chance to really get to know our clients and be able to provide them with exactly what they want for the day of their big occasion!

Additionally, we have had some great events in the last few months. We were invited to be part of the Father Sierra fund-raiser for the second year in a row, this was an absolute blast! We always look forward to giving back to the community and kids with chocolate & marshmallow covered faces are the cutest thing in the world! We also had a huge dessert table for an amazing client Lily, who went above and beyond in planning an elaborate peacock/Bollywood themed sweet 16 party. We worked with Lily’s vision for her daughter’s party and especially loved working with her because she was open to our suggestions and was genuinely excited about having our dessert table at her nothing-less-than-fabulous party! Needless to say our desserts and fountains were a hit! The guests especially loved the Larocca Picollinis as well as the assortment of Larocca cakes!

Last month we also had the great pleasure of working with our friends from Arora Wedding & Event Planning in Woodbridge. Guests were especially eager to try the desserts and even lined up before we had opened the table! We’re pretty sure from their reaction that it was well worth the wait!
