type of chocolate do you use?
We use SF Signature Fountain Chocolate.
SF Signature fountain chocolate has extra cocoa butter which
gives the chocolate a wonderful taste and lets it flow through
the chocolate fountain beautifully with no need for oil. Nothing
but delicious, real chocolate is found in our chocolate fountains
and as our past clients can tell you - it is delicious.
I pay extra for set-up, take-down, and/or travel?
If you are using one of our "Full-Service"
chocolate fountain packages, all of this is included in the
price quote you receive from us. Our prices on the website include
set-up, take-down and travel up to 20 miles from the downtown
area. Our "Semi-Service" chocolate fountain packages do not
deal with these items.
confused, what is the difference between "Full-Service" and
chocolate fountain rentals are just what they say they are.
One of our local, friendly chocolate fountain reps will come
to your event, set-up the chocolate fountain, monitor it, tear
it down and clean it up. You don't have to lift a finger when
it comes to the chocolate fountain.
rentals are for those in areas where we don't have "Full-Service"
rentals. We ship you the chocolate fountain, 600 skewers and
our easy directions for setting up and cleaning up the chocolate
fountain. You can add SF Signature Chocolate on to your rental
also. It also includes one-way shipping to your residence and/or
business and three (3) days of rental time so you don't have
to worry about returning the chocolate fountain immediately
after your event.
many skewers do you bring?
We have over 1000 skewers on hand for
standard events (0 - 200 guests). For larger events, we will
have extra on hand. Our "Semi-Service" packages come with 600
skewers (enough for appx. 200 people).
your company insured?
Yes, we have liability insurance. Proof
is available for your banquet hall or facility. We always recommend
that you require liability insurance from all your vendors for
your special event.
is the deposit?
We require a $200 non-refundable retainer
fee to secure a chocolate fountain for your date. We do not
hold dates without a signed contract and deposit.
else should I know about the chocolate fountain?
We require that you provide a level table,
an 120 volt grounded electrical outlet and the linens and decorations
for the chocolate fountain. You should also have plates and
napkins for your guests to use.
I use the chocolate fountain outside?
When it comes to outdoor chocolate fountain
rentals, we will require a outdoor waiver form. We recommend
that the chocolate fountain is completely enclosed or in an
area where absolutely no wind would be able to reach it.
you provide the dipping items?
***We now provide dipping items at an
additional cost in the Seattle area.
are two reasons why we don't provide dipping items. First, if
you can provide them yourself, they are extremely affordable
for you to have available for us. You can generally pick up
all the items for the chocolate fountain at Costco or Sam's
Club. Our chocolate fountain representative will arrange them
if they are on the table with platters. With all Sweet Fountains
bookings, we send a list of our Top
20 items which include strawberries, marshmallows, brownie
bites, cream puffs, pretzels and much more!
The second reason we don't provide the items is at some facilities,
they do not allow outside catering or food services. Usually
the chocolate fountain is acceptable by itself, but not with
the dipping items. Your caterers should be able to supply you
with an even greater selection of items which could include
fresh cut fruits and more seasonal items. Once again, we provide
you a "Top 20" dipping
items sheet to share with your caterer.
I use the chocolate fountain in place of the wedding cake?
Absolutely, many of our brides have chosen
to move away from the norm and have replaced their wedding cake
with the chocolate fountain. Click
here to see the comparison between the two! We know that
their guests have not been disappointed!
