Dear potential partner,

Thank you so much for showing an interest in our franchise opportunities.

Our history began in 2004 in our store in Aachen, where Tous was "cooking with chocolate" every day... and serving customers the tastiest chocolate milk.  Every day a new spectacular flavour.  Wouldn't it be great to be able to serve all those flavours every day?  That question was the start of the Hotchocspoon... a world innovation at the time and still going strong.  On top, we keep innovating with chocolate every day!

We have recently re-confirmed the interest and investment in franchise development and are looking forward to collaborate with new partners soon.  We already export  to 35 countries and have 7 CHCO Cafés in operation.

For our international development, we are looking for franchise partners with an interest in developing an important city, area or country.  You have to be willing and able to invest in multiple stores upon success of the first one under your management.

If you have an interest, please provide us with some documentation, outlining the following:

    • Which city, area you have an interest in
    • Background information showing you/your team's capabilities in foodservice or service oriented consumer business
    • Financial information showing that you are able to as a minimum invest in a first store and have the potential to develop more afterwards.  Store investment for a full cafe ranges from 150-200.000 Euros, kiosks from 60-90.000 and Shop in Shops from 10-20.000 Euros (costing based on Benelux building contracts).
    • A written note highlighting your team's motivation and passion, why there is an interest in food, and in 
    • particular chocolate as well as your interest in service and people.

Please send this documentation to and allow 2-3 weeks for review.

Thank you so much for your interest in CHCO Cafe's and our unique passion for chocolate!
