Speaking on Business: Cummings Studio Chocolates
Cummings is famous for their Rum Victoria with the handmade signature on top, truffles, and custom box mixes.
This is Chris Redgrave for Zions Bank Speaking on Business.
You want to talk about business success? Cummings Studio Chocolates in Salt Lake City is so packed during Valentine’s Day, they need a police officer to direct traffic, especially with their prime location at 9th South and 7th East.
The top seller for Valentine’s Day is chocolate-dipped strawberries. You have to get those only a day before you plan to eat them, and that’s why they have lines out the door. Sometimes people will request the strawberries be dipped in white or dark chocolate, but milk chocolate remains the favorite. Company president Marion Cummings, daughter-in-law of the original company founder, says Cummings is famous for their Rum Victoria, with the handmade signature on top. People also come for the truffles, and why not when they have 60 flavors to choose from?
What people really love at Cummings Studio Chocolates are the custom box mixes they make. Marion says they have over 1,000 cards on file of customers’ special assortment. Now it’s all computerized, but the cards are still there, as a reminder. That means you could call to request your grandma’s favorite selection of chocolates, and plenty of people do.
In just over 90 years, Cummings Studio Chocolates has created a lot of memories for special occasions, from Christmas to Valentine’s Day to Easter.
