When I opened my first restaurant, I realized that the food needed to be impeccable. Instead of worrying about food costs, I zeroed in on the best vendors and gave them my business. The rewards were incredible. Customers absolutely loved the food, and they just kept coming back. Five years later, my business is running strong, and I owe it all to those initial business relationships with vendors.

You never know, it could transform your restaurant for the better--so that you can protect your investment.
You love to create specialty foods and sweets that your customers can enjoy, and you enjoy making the common basics like cupcakes, cakes, and other desserts. However, you want to branch out and add a few new sweets to your specialty foods line, but you don't want to outright dedicate your business to candies. You want to create a food that is both decadent and sweet while being distinct from the classic brownie. How about adding fudge to your line of tasty treats? Here are reasons to think about fudge candy when you add to your bakery line of inventory.
You add a familiar classic to your menu
Many people already know what classic fudge is, so you aren't making a massive stretch in popularity and pushing the dessert envelope when you make this type of investment in your business. Since fudge is a familiar dessert and candy treat — fudge can be considered both a candy and a dessert, making this sweet concoction versatile — you won't have to convince customers to try something new when you add this familiar classic to your menu.
Start by doing classic milk or dark chocolate fudge for your customers. As requests come in for more decadent and unique flavors, such as strawberry, white chocolate, or even fudge with nuts or fruit in it, you can branch out.
You add a versatile treat that's easy to make
Fudge is great as a specialty food item because you can make the treat in a variety of ways using many ingredients. You can make fudge with peanut butter, strawberries, and other additives and flavorings. You can add chocolate chips, coconut, candy pieces, caramel, and even nuts or dried fruit. Fudge is versatile in its nature and easy to make, which means you can regularly change up your fudge offerings to provide something fun and unique for your customers every day.
You add a tasty treat that is easy to store
Fudge is easy to store. You can put this treat in a closed container, wrap fudge in plastic wrap, or use special bags to keep this treat safe and fresh for customers to enjoy. Having a specialty food that is easy to prepare and store is helpful since you don't have to worry so much about the presentation of this treat compared to other decadent treats you serve, like cake or pie. Your options are nearly endless when you serve fudge in your bakery.Share
