Do you love chocolates? Are you a chocoholic type of person? Can you eat a half or a kilo of chocolate bar? There is a chocolate factory in the Philippines called Chocolate Lover, Inc. and the main store is located at 45 P. Tuazon Blvd. corner C. Benitez Street, Cubao, Quezon City.
I went there last time and the prices of goods went up, surprisingly this year. Before (2005-2008), half kilo of premium chocolate bar was 48.00 to 54.00 and a kilo cost only 98.00-110.00. But now, a half kilo of premium chocolate bar costs 94.00 and the regular chocolate bar is 85.00.
If you're thinking about putting up a good business with small capital, this is one of those popular ones among small stores. I had experienced selling those chocolate lollipops, kisses and marshmallows coated with chocolate crunch to students in school, my former co-workers, neighbors and friends. It was a big hit! And the income was doubled once you know the secret and art of making of the chocolate molding.
