About

What was once known as Cotton Candy Krazy, Inc. was founded by Randy and Melvina Walker in June 1993, as a sole proprietorship and registered in the county of Santa Clara, California. Walker began experimenting in March of 1993 with various recipes to create an outlandish colored and most of all; distinct flavored Cotton Candy.

Eventually this produced a banana Cotton Candy, the first delicious Cotton Candy Krazy Product. It was then Walker realized that this new and exciting twist to the old fashioned Cotton Candy could actually be done. However, Cotton Candy alone for a retail store would not be sufficient for the marketing plan in mind. There had to be more products just as unique and attractive. Another several weeks of research brought walker to a line of products which are not only unique, but delicious, attractive and fun to eat.

All Cotton Candy Krazy Products are FDA approved.

Since grand opening day of the world's first Cotton Candy store in 1993, Cotton Candy Krazy has received an abundance of Inquiries which propelled Walker into the wholesale market "The Cotton Candy Krazy Floss sugar Division". This division was created in September of 1994 to deliver 41 flavors of Cotton Candy in raw sugar from Amusement parks, Carnivals, Zoological organizations, Theme Parks and Circuses. Since the Division was formed, Cotton Candy Krazy has begun business with clients such as: Six Flags Magic Mountain, Knott's Berry Farm, Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, Columbus Zoological Organization, Chuck E. Cheese's Pizza Time Theater and much more.

Randy M. Walker died at the age of 44 in April of 2006 leaving his legacy behind for his oldest son Steven Walker thus creating the latest and final concept that to date will be known as Qiv41 (Qiva's 41 Flavors of Cotton Candy). This new concept is expected to further expand on the world’s first ever Cotton Candy retail store franchise by offering more additional flavors of Cotton Candy, Candied apples, Fizzers, Snow Cones, Ice Cream, Popcorn, and several other exotic tasty treats!

-

Qiv41 is a cotton candy retail store that offers 41 distinct flavors of Cotton Candy along with several other treats to our customers. When various products such as Cotton Candy, Candied apples, and Snow cones are usually offered only in amusement parks, circuses, and other outdoor events, Qiva offers a higher quality version of these same products in retail. Simply put, you will not find the same unique products that Qiva has to offer anywhere else on the globe.

-

Qiv41.com is under construction but will have several neat features. Essentially our website will keep you up to date with events, products and special events that will take place during the seasons/ holidays. Also, items like popcorn, T-shirts/ clothing, comic books, posters, etc~! will be able to be purchased through our website also well.

 -

We have a wide range of products that will be available at our store locations and events that will allow us to share our goodies to the world. All of our delicious flavors with the colors to match are what attract our customers and keep them coming back for more. Essentially, all Qiva products speak for themselves~!

 -

Our goal with Qiv41 is to open our first location in Sacramento by the end of 2014 and expand our business by later opening multiple locations around the world. In order to do this we will need the proper equipment, repairs, permits, leasing, supplies, furniture, etc. $125,000 is our estimated cost per store that includes the following. Construction & Improvements (Based on 1100SQ.FT) -  

Cost of equipment, construction cost, total cost of signs & menus, Initial Inventory cost (Sugars, Syrups, Cups, Etc.), lease payment (Including deposit), promotional costs, operating capitol (Based on a single store)  

SUMMARY

Eventually our mission is to expand Qiva's unique line of food and novelty products which can be found only at Carnivals, Theme Parks, Circuses, etc. into additional retail and wholesale locations.

The Qiv41 product grew out of a combination of existing market opportunities.

1. Qiv41 products are classified as “low ticket items” which are very attractive in both, a slow or flourishing economy.

2. There are no barriers due to age, sex, income, etc.

3. Qiv41 brings fun to people of all ages.

*Our kickstarter goal is not to start a franchise, but simply to open up a Qiv41 location in Sacramento.

We would like to thank you for your support in making Qiv41 come to life. We have a wide range of rewards to show our thanks in making this dream come to life~!

Risks and challenges

My father was the CEO/ Owner of Cotton Candy Krazy and died in 2006. This was when the store closed and has been shut down since then. The current state of business today is that we do not have and are in the process of finding an exact location in Sacramento. This could be the biggest challenge for us, although our product speaks for itself, having the right location would play the largest part in the success. Our primary goal is to select location based on the highest demand for our product :)
