About this project

WE LOVE FUDGE!   We love making it, eating it, sharing it and selling it!

We have been selling our creamy fudge at local fresh markets in the Tampa Bay area and the response has been amazing.  We are building a solid customer base of people who show up each and every week to buy our delicious  fudge.  After many requests from retailers who want to sell our yummy fudge, it is time to expand the business and buy the equipment needed to increase our production. 

Using Kickstarter to raise the funds is a win/win situation for us and our customers.  We've put together packages that are a great value... packages we would send to our own family and friends. 

A few of the flavors we will be offering are Chewy Praline (one of our favorites), Chocolate Raspberry Swirl and Orange Cream.   Traditional fudgy favorites will be available like Chocolate Walnut, Maple Walnut and of course our killer Peanut Butter and Chocolate Peanut Butter varieties.   The list of choices will be much longer and you will receive a survey to determine which flavors you want to share and enjoy.

.

We love the idea of our fudge being given as a gift so we decided to add some extra goodies to our packages.    Check our our video below to see all the "Fudge Boy Extras" .  Questions and comments are always welcome!

Risks and challenges

The most obvious risk and challenge for this type of business is meeting demand for the product. Making our living as artists since 1988 has taught us how to manage time and materials and deliver on time. The addition of new equipment will make it possible to meet our delivery and market schedules and increase our business with the addition of wholesale outlets. Our planning and research has convinced us that we are not only up for the challange, we are well prepared. Our enthusiastic customers who show up week after week buying and enjoying our fudge and making flavor suggestions will insure our success.
