Sweet Symphony's handcrafted gourmet fudge with a nostalgic twist is coming to the streets aboard a vintage style trolley. Read more
This project was successfully funded on September 30, 2011.
About this project
Taking mobile desserts way beyond the ice cream truck!
In an effort to appease the overwhelming requests to have fudge on demand, we are going to launch the Sweet Symphony Fudge Trolley
The trolley will travel around the Hampton Roads area of Virginia, offering our finest gourmet fudge in over 60 exquisite flavors. Every batch of fudge is handcrafted and tested for the perfect quality in every bite. All of the flavors offer old fashion enchantment with a modern flair.
Wherever the trolley arrives, it will provide a "grab and go" window feature just like you would for a traditional ice cream truck. However, we want to have an "on board" feature where you can board the trolley, sit in an authentic trolley environment and enjoy your treats while you watch them created right in front of you.
Private parties, custom desserts and charity events are going to be part of our ongoing experience opportunities.
Our fudge, artisan chocolates and fresh baked treats will be available on demand in parking lots, neighborhoods and special events. We'll have a calendar set up for you to see where we'll be and even invite us to come to your location!
We offer over 60 flavors already and continue to develop new flavors regularly. Some of our best flavors will have you coming back for more.
- Cinnamon Roll
- Key Lime
- Pumpkin Pie
- Peanut Butter
- Cookies N Cream
- Confetti Cake
- Cherry Cheesecake
The Trolley goes mobile...
The goal is to have an "on board" experience or grab and go just like an ice cream truck. The market area would be the south side of Hampton Roads Virginia primarily including Chesapeake and Virginia Beach with the possibility of Norfolk, Portsmouth and Suffolk. Completion of the project will be declared on the launch of our first Trolley Run.
What your support will help us do...
The project will include the purchase, licensing and outfitting of the trolley as well as the cooking/storing equipment, permits and licensing, product expenses and artistic design to attract attention and curb appeal.
While I'm hoping to make heads turn and treat Hampton Roads to luxury desserts and a unique experience, my ultimate goal is make life better for my family. I have four amazing kids that completely rock my world! They are everything to me! Aside from my overwhelming desire to make life better for my kids and be able to offer them more opportunities to excel, my biggest fight continues to be for our 3rd child, Zoe. Her story of strength and endurance gives me the courage to fight for what I want and need for my family. She fights for her life on a daily basis. (You can read her story at www.runningforzoe.com or www.zoecadence.com) She is my hero...and I'll do anything to find a cure for her. My other children are the best brothers and sister any kid could ask for. They tolerate a lot of drama surrounding Zoe's medical care. And, they have so much compassion for her. We are truly blessed to have these great kids!! As much as I'd like my story to be about me....it's really all about them. This project will enable me to pour my love for sugar on an awesome community, allow me to tell the world about my little hero and empower me to provide for my family! With my (gorgeous) husband by my side, I'm going to change the world....one bite at a time!
All or nothing...
We are so grateful for the opportunity that kickstarter has provided to raise the money for the Sweet Symphony Fudge Trolley. However, this is an all or nothing approach. If all the money is pledged, then, we'll be granted the funds and begin the work on the trolley. If we do NOT meet our pledge goal, we don't get anything. And, without 100% pledges/funding, there won't be a Sweet Symphony Fudge Trolley. If we don't meet our pledge goal, then you won't be charged anything and, unfortunately, that means nobody will receive a reward. So, tell your friends and show your love! We need YOU!
What you can expect from us...
We guarantee to offer quality customer service, consistent development of flavors and techniques and to bring a generous approach to giving back to our community. As we launch the Sweet Symphony brand on the Hampton Roads community, we want you to know that we will never forget where we started and who helped us get where we're going. The integrity of Sweet Symphony will stand firm on the foundation that our family and friends have laid for us.
