This fountain is just perfect for small home events, office appreciation day, teacher teas: the list is endless. It's a hard working fountain that I use as a "pick-up and return after the week-end" in my catering business. It makes me extra money and there's no work on my part. I like that! I supply the whole package; fountain, 4 lbs. of chocolate and 100 skewers for one price. If they need more chocolate, it's additional per pound. I have found a nice looking carrying box (that's why I gave it a 4--no carrying case) and package everything together. It's easy for the customer to manage and I include a laminated instruction sheet on how to set up and use the fountain. I even include a rubber spatula and a Home Depot level, so the customer has a successful party. Many of my customers rent this annually for certain repeat events. This fountain will pay for itself in two rentals! A real money maker!!
