Running a Chocolate Production by Melissa Coppel and Ramon Perez

Setting out to create any business is nerve-wracking. But starting a wholesale chocolate business, given all its variables, can be especially intimidating! Chef Melissa Coppel and Ramon Perez (owner of Puur Chocolat) have experienced firsthand the challenges and victories of owning a wholesale chocolate business. In this Hands-On class, they share their struggles, secrets, tips, and lessons learned.

The class focuses on you and your business, as well as your expectations and aspirations for it. Working directly with Chef Melissa and Chef Ramon will give you all the valuable aspects of chocolate production: productivity, costs, packaging, branding, storage, and shipping. No class on chocolate is complete without a variety of enrobed and molded bonbons, so Chefs Perez and Coppel will share their go-to recipes for bonbons that are easy to decorate and irresistibly delicious. Whether you're running an established chocolate business or just starting, this class is for you!
