I opened Cocoa Cabana Chocolatiers in West Didsbury, Manchester in November 2012 and since then my business has gone from strength to strength.
I have won both Great Taste Awards and Academy of Chocolate Awards for my truffles, Entreprenuer of the year in 2015 and I have had the best fun along the way meetings loads of lovely customers and creating fabulous chocolates.
In October 2017 I moved to a much larger shop on Burton Road, West didsbury in Manchester and I have made this shop a great success, I am passionate about independent business thriving and its always been my plan to have more than one Cocoa Cabana!
So here comes the big news! I am opening Cocoa Cabana in Ancoats in November 2018 (fingers crossed)
I have managed to raise nearly all that I need to make the most amazing space for you to enjoy, however I'm a little short of the target and I am really hoping you can help.
The new shop will have room to have more customers for afternoon teas, it will have loads of space for lovely chocolate, it will have a super cool interior where you can even watch us making our gorgeous bonbons. It will have space for parties, chocolate events and even better it will have space for chocolate making classes!
If that isn't enough we will also have a fabulous cocktail menu, great tunes and a carefully curated selection of gifts, meaning you can treat your friends and then treat yourself :)
This is where I need your help, I have raised most of the money needed to make the new Ancoats space as amazing as it can be but its not easy raising finance through traditional methods; small businesses do not have the buying power of larger companies and I have so far mostly self financed the growth of Cocoa cabana.
I would be eternally grateful of you would help me reach my goal and open Cocoa Cabana Ancoats
Risks and challenges
£65,000 is the minimum I need to get Cocoa Cabana Ancoats open and sparkling the way I think you will all love and want to visit.
I have already secured £50,000 so I need to raise a minimum of £15,000
I am really hoping you can all help me to get to my goal of £65,000, we can raise more than this amount and if I do I have some fabulous surprises up my sleeves!
As with all kickstarters, I need to raise the full amount to get all the investment, it's shit or bust kids!
I hope you can help :)Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
