Sawade Factory Outlet Sees 40 Percent Increase in Revenue

Public
Public

Dear Companists,

Our Companisto campaign will be over in as little as 38 days. We are really proud that we have already raised over €915,000 with your help, and we would like to thank you for your confidence, for your many helpful suggestions concerning potential partners, and for your numerous sales tips. We are very optimistic about this season, and we are really looking forward to the next one as well!

 

Increase in Factory Outlet Revenue

We are in the middle of peak season for chocolates, truffles, and chocolate. Just in time for the beginning of this season, we have again worked on our factory outlet, built a new sales counter, and made some decorative repairs. In our factory outlet (which is over 120 m² large), we are offering chocolates and truffles with little flaws and broken candy from our factory at cheap prices. Until 31 December, our outlet will also open from 9 a.m. through 2 p.m. on Saturdays. Moreover, we have had some positive experiences with our demonstration sessions, the next one of which will take place from 7 through 11 December. We will then decorate marzipan loaves with customers' names in our factory outlet and discuss the peculiarities of Sawade.

All of the above activities have led to a 40 % increase in revenues compared to last year (in the period from July through October), and we believe that our factory outlet has even more potential, for instance in terms of tourism and coach travel.

 

 

A Sawade Bus for Berlin

From late November, a double-decker bus will go around Berlin, advertising our Sawade chocolates and truffles. We are really looking forward to looking at the bus when it is ready, and we will be happy when it goes along Kurfürstendamm. Please send us a picture if you see the bus on the road in Berlin!

 

Supporters of Komische Oper

Last week, the "supporters of Komische Oper Berlin" visited us. This club consists of people supporting Komische Oper Berlin and has existed for more than 25 years. We gave the club a presentation on Sawade, our company's history up to this day, and the peculiarities of our factory. Komische Oper and Sawade have been partners for a long time, because both companies were founded in downtown Berlin in 1880.

Today, we are still collaborating with Komische Oper: After performances, each guest of the opera receives a Sawade chocolate in a box made specifically for this purpose.

 

 

Promotion Tour of Germany

Our sales team is currently on a promotion tour of Germany, that is, we are visiting some of our retailers and are introducing customers to our delicious products. During live tasting events, customers may also try our specialties, ranging from the Königin Louise pastry, fresh Kir Royal and Marc de Champagne truffles, handmade brittle, and creamy nougat chocolates to the finest pistachio marzipan. Our experiences during the tour have been very positive thus far. Indeed, Retailers and customers alike have been thrilled.

 

Best regards from our factory (and remember to keep eating chocolate, which will make you happy),

Melanie und Benno

NOTE:

Investments in crowdfunding projects offer great opportunities, but they are risk investments. In the worst case, the entire investment amount may be lost. Consequently, these investments are unsuitable for retirement plans. However, there is no obligation to make further contributions. Investors can minimize their risk by splitting their investment amount between crowdfunding campaigns rather than investing all of it in one crowdfunding campaign. Professional investors often follow this strategy because it causes the risk to be distributed among several investments. In this way, successful investments can balance other less successful investments.

The shares of the Companists are subordinated profit-participating loans (partiarische Nachrangdarlehen). Such loans are shares in a business with similar characteristics as equity. If the company becomes insolvent or is liquidated, the claims of the Companists – just like those of all other shareholders of the company – will be satisfied from the assets in the insolvency or the assets in liquidation only after the claims of all other external creditors have been satisfied. Thus, Companists are treated like any other shareholder of the company during insolvency or liquidation proceedings.

The company information published on the Companisto website is provided solely by the companies. The projections made by the companies do not guarantee successful development of the company in the future. Consequently, crowdfunding investments are suitable only for those investors who can cope with the risk of a total loss of the capital invested. Investors make their own independent investment decisions and bear all risks themselves.

The investments are provided and issued by the individual companies. Companisto is neither the provider nor the issuer of the investments, but solely the internet service platform.
