Chocolate business without competitors.
I always wanted to create my own business . It is desirable without competition , without high material costs, without reference to raw materials and someone else's premises. I wanted to do exclusive things with good profitability without leaving home. And that is not unimportant to give pleasure from what has been done to yourself and potential buyers.
I think I came up with such a thing that satisfies ALL of these conditions at the same time. I stand it for your discussion.
Despite the crisis, people did not stop marrying, celebrate birthdays, celebrate holidays, compete, but just make each other pleasant gifts.
I thought that medals could be such gifts. But the real thing is expensive, and in a city apartment they cannot be made. The idea was born to make a medal of chocolate glaze.
- cheap raw materials from any confectionery department
- you can work in the kitchen, without noise and smell
- products are edible
- non-waste production
- an opportunity to show imagination
The simplest solution is to melt and pour chocolate in an open form. Get a medal with one-sided bas-relief. This, if desired, can be done by everyone. I invented and made a snap allowing to make a bas-relief on both sides. In addition, it is possible to make an insert from any side of the coin from a photo laminated into a food film. And this is know-how. This is about competition. Got a chocolate color casting. Boring and primitive.
I set the following task. Chocolate medals should have colors: gold, silver, bronze and copper. On industrial equipment, gold and silver colors are obtained by sealing the medals in foil. Very expensive and inaccessible to me way.
A long trial and error method picked up the necessary food colors, although imported, but inexpensive and affordable. Those. who showed test samples did not believe that they are made of chocolate.
Now it was necessary to protect the surface of the medals from external influences. Shoveled a bunch of literature found an old Russian recipe for the manufacture of food varnish from the available ingredients. Successfully made and tested. Later I found and checked two more imported varnishes. Well, in order for the medal to be hung on a ribbon or chain in the uncured blank, I insert a regular cocktail straw, in which then I make a hole for the little ring.
The cost of materials is about 20 rubles. I think that profitability should be on the level. Melting chocolate in a simple water or air bath. He made forms on various topics, ready to share and train them in work.
