Once you have one shot, you will crave for more! The best way to go for more is asking your best friend to accompany you so that you don’t high. Again, just saying!

Celebrate this Holi with Good Chocolate and Cold Coffee

This is the month of March and the summer is already at our doorsteps. The whole nation will soon be burning with temperatures ranging up to 48-50 ⁰C. To welcome the hot summer and cool down ourselves we celebrate Holi – the festival of colors and water.

What is so special about Holi?

A quick Google search will tell you that there are several (thousands!) mythological stories about Holi, but let’s just keep it simple. In India, a warm summer is followed by a soothing Monsoon season; hence there is every reason to celebrate Holi.

Holi is the festival of color, water, and love. It is the best time of the year to come out in open, burn down the evil, and have some fun. You can simply run around like crazy; shower your friends with colored water or dry color, or paint their faces in blue-yellow-pink, whatever you like!

Holi brings out the kid in you…the kid that you may have lost in your regular formal wardrobe! And that is what is so special about Holi.

Treat the Young You with Some Chocolate!

If you are planning a grand Holi celebration, you should…nah…you must make a visit to any of Café Choco Craze franchisees for deciding what would you like to have as party starters, mid-party snacks and Ice tea, and after-party stress reliever chocolate desserts.

If you opt for group bookings, please let us know in advance. Generally, on festivals, we get a lot of Choco Crazy crowd and we don’t want to disappoint you if you do not find a comfy seat in our store. Just let us know in advance and we will make sure that you get the best of all you want!

We understand since we have a lot of experience, playing Holi could be amazingly exhausting. You are probably planning to celebrate it before the noon so that you avoid getting out in the Sun, or in the evening when the intensity of Sun has decreased.

Guess what?? We are open at these timings, morning 10 am to night 10 pm, eagerly waiting to serve you our delicious Cold Coffee and Chocolate shakes.

Holi celebration is incomplete without filling your stomach with mouth-watering gourmet dishes. Our chefs specialize in a limited number of gourmet snack dishes such as Club Sandwich, Zoom Cheese Grill, Cheese Garlic Bread and Paneer El. Panso pizza to name a few.

We are sure you are not leaving our store without tasting our delicious, and shall we say special, Thick Cold Coffee. If you are a chocolate lover, we have a great variety of Thick Shakes to choose from.

At Café Choco Craze, we are very strict about the service we provide. We follow certain rules and regulations so that we co-ordinate better and provide you with the best of the ambiance you will find anywhere.

On this Holi, we at Café Choco Craze invite you to have a blast and treat that positively devilish kid in you with lots of love and chocolate!

Everything Happens Over a Thick Cold Coffee

The winter is in its optimal form and joy is everywhere. This is surely a romantic environment, not only for committed couples but also for would-be couples. The New Year has started and everyone is coming up with resolutions and commitments for the year, or perhaps for a lifetime!

Are you at a stage, wondering about when and where to whisper those three precious words in his or her ears? Are you planning for a ‘Proposal’?

We understand your difficulties; after all, we have gone through this phase! It is too much of planning…it has to be a perfect place, a perfect setting, perfect beverage, and a perfect moment. Well, guess what, we have figured it out. Café Choco Craze is the ‘perfect place’ for your long-planned ‘Proposal’.

We see so many couples these days, proposing over our Thick Cold Coffee popular as Frolicks. Gone are the days of regular hot coffee; Cold Coffee is where everything happens. We make nine varieties of Frolicks, one for each of your ‘Proposal’ needs.

Why does it happen over Cold Coffee?

Good question. Here is a simple answer. We say that a good beverage such as our Thick Cold Coffee, which is delicious, ice cold, viscous dark brown liquid, rich in Chocolate, and garnished with Choco chips is a way to reach to the heart of your guest. The better the coffee, the better your success probability is. Really! We are not kidding!

Coffee contains caffeine that enhances brain activity and gives sensations of pleasure and a mild feeling of happiness, everything that should ease your difficulties in pleasing your guest. Chocolate makes humans feel happy and makes up a positive mood, another important thing for increasing your success probability. Our Cold Coffee, hence, is the best of beverages you should have on your ‘Proposal’ day. This is not manipulating, this is the ‘perfect’ everything you are looking for! You can make it even better by replacing Cold Coffee by our top products – Chocolick MM and Chocolick B. As Charles Schulz says, ‘All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.’

Sorry, we are not stereotyping, but girls go crazy for Chocolate. A quick fun fact – Chocolate helps women by stabilizing their body hormones. So if you are a guy planning to woo a girl of your dreams, what could be a better option but to ease the talk over a mug of Chocolick B. Cold chocolate, in our experience, is much more tempting than hot chocolate.

After all, it is you, who have to take the decision of your life. We are supporters and would love to cheer you up, while you are playing on the front foot. For more ‘Proposal’ ideas, keep looking this space. Valentine’s Day is upcoming. We await you to help you with your ‘Proposal’.

Cash – No Cash: A Guide to Payment at Café Choco Craze

The bold move of demonetization to eradicate black money by Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi, since 8 November 2016, has definitely shaken many financial sectors including the food industry. Many businesses which primarily function on liquid cash have been deeply affected by the decision.

Not only businessmen but laymen are suffering due to insufficient resources to fall back on. Demonetization has resulted in never ending long queues outside banks and ATMs, wasting energy and time.

We, at Café Choco Craze, believe that although of inconvenience now, this decision is going to have long-term benefits in restructuring Indian economy. We do understand that it is frustrating to stand in queues for a meager amount of cash, which does not even support an individual’s week’s expenses.

To ease your suffering and delight you with our delicious variety of chocolates and milkshakes, which dieticians say are great for health, we have started cashless transactions in many of our franchises. We are slowly transforming into cashless stores now, the process has already begun. As you already know, we offer the best of chocolate at affordable prices – the best being Chocolick B and Chocolick M.

There are several ways in which we accept bills. These are the same methods we use for the franchise business. If you are still not aware of how this works, here is a briefing –
1. Cash – This is the traditional way of bill payment. Since there is a cash crunch in the country, we understand that if you walk into our store without even your wallet. If you want to spend cash* on the menu, you are welcome.
*Caution: Please no Rs. 2000 notes for a bill of less than Rs. 200. We have our limitations.
2. Card Payment – This is the standard VISA, Master Card or Maestro Card payment using a point of sale (POS) card swiping device. In many of our franchisees, we have a POS device.
3. Mobile Wallet – We don’t mind if you walk into our store, have the chocolate of your choice, and simply transfer money through a mobile wallet. Many of our franchise managers have mobile wallets on their smartphones. The most popular wallets are Paytm followed by freecharge and MobiKwik.

We request you to follow these simplest steps to ensure a great payment experience at our franchises –
1. When you walk into any of our franchise, request payment information beforehand, even if you see VISA or Paytm stickers in the store. Sometimes there could be trouble connecting to the internet server.
2. Do not worry, card payment at Café Choco Craze franchises is totally secure.
3. Please wait your turn for payment if there is a crowd. As Mr. Modi says, patience is the key to fighting black money; think that you are doing your bit by keeping calm and waiting in the queue.
4. Do remember to collect customer copy of the bill for your record.

We hope next time you have a great payment experience at Café Choco Craze.
