Business name: Tasty Image Chocolate
Business description: In 2003, teacher and single mom Derri Cerbone accompanied a friend to a business opportunity tradeshow. There she saw a demonstration that would change her life, professional direction and earning potential—images printed on chocolate right before her eyes. During the two minutes she waited for her chocolate photo to print, she made the decision that this was the key to unlock her financial future.
Derri started Tasty Image in Jupiter, Florida out of a home office. She started out selling just personalized chocolates, but branched out to chocolate fountains and other chocolate candies based on customer demand.
Business eventually became too big for her home office. The first Tasty Image retail store opened in 2006. With the additional space she added to her product line by offering truffles, fudge, personalized chocolate gift baskets and candy making classes to accompany personalized chocolates.
