company for everything chocolate online
Fairfield, NJ (PRWEB) January 20, 2008
Based in Fairfield, NJ, Choconet (http://www.choconet1.com) offers commercial and retail customers a unique variety of custom and pre-packaged chocolate confections to suit a wide array of gift, social and corporate promotion interests.
Michael Adler, Choconet founder, says it best saying "Choconet sells customized chocolate gifts and favors, specializing in logo-branded customization for all manner of corporate promotions such as corporate identity, trade shows, special events, new product launches and many other themes." Individuals are big buyers of Choconet products as well for all sorts of personal and social occasions.
Adler founded Choconet in 1999 after over 12 years as owner in the business of corporate promotions. "I wanted to sell on the internet" says Adler. "After doing a great deal of market research and business assessment, I saw the internet as an ideally suited business for a huge demand product such as chocolate. People are clearly looking for chocolate in all kinds of varieties and for many purposes and occasions. Is there a holiday or other special event where chocolate isn't a serious consideration or desired offering?"
Adler further points out that he wanted to specialize and be great -- "truly the expert" -- in a specific area of corporate promotion and personal gifting. He contrasts this approach to the more general area of corporate promotion where literally thousands of different items are pushed in the name of corporate promotion. "I wanted to focus on one key and growing area (custom chocolate) and do an A-level job rather than offer a catalogue of thousands of pens, golf balls, umbrellas, etc and have only a cursory understanding of them. I want to be the "go-to" company for everything chocolate online," Adler said.
The company now offers well over 300 different chocolates and other goodies including:
- All manner of custom chocolate
- Corporate Chocolates
- Executive Gifts
- Holiday Chocolates
- Foil Wrapped Novelties
- M&M Chocolates
- Chocolate Lollipops
- Chocolate Coins
- Chocolate Bars
- Logo Mints
- Gift Boxes
- Favor Boxes
- Casino Chips
- Picture Cookies
- Candy Picture Pops
- Chocolate Cookies
- Special Occasion Chocolate(Wedding, Bar.Bat Mitzvahs, Grand Openings, Convention, Communion, Graduation, Recognition and Awards)
Adler points out that the occasions and unique ideas that his customers use for his products are limitless. A few recent examples are:
1. Customer ordering M&M Colorworks which are customizable M&M's. The customer customized the gift by saying "Marry Me" on the M&M's pieces. They are now happily married!
2. An electronics company ordered a fully sculpted, silver dusted, Cable Connector that was sent to their clients as a "thank you" message.
3. Another was an E-Z Pass transponder -- the device normally found on your windshield. This one was done in high quality customized chocolate.
