The Chocolate Cup has gone through some major changes this year! Not only is the company offering more services, but also has new ownership! Over the past year, the growing company has been run and operated by Aaron Canales and Lauren Hardacker. These native austinites have over 15 years experience in the hospitality industry with expertise in business management, marketing and sales. They acquired the already 10-year-old local business, one year ago, and have continued to provide excellence and caliber service. They believe the little details go a long way, and specialize in bringing premium deserts and espresso catering to every event.  Their unique product offering of chocolate fountains, espresso, gelato, Hawaiian shaved ice, hand dipped ice cream, mini doughnuts, and Milkshakes brings excitement, variety and a simple nice touch people will remember forever!   
When Lauren and Aaron are not busy with the business, they enjoy the local music scene going live concerts and playing with their two dogs, Sadie and Chase. They enjoy going to the Drafthouse to see the newest films, and love to spend time with family and friends here in the city. "We know Austin like the back of our hand, and love not only living here, but running a business locally. We will never leave this growing, awesome city." 

Not only do they know the city well, but they have lots of roots here. With connections with many local businesses and event industry professionals, they know how running a successful service at an event in Austin works. They work with several hotels, restaurants, and event venues here in Austin and surrounding areas to provide the perfect setting for your event set up. 

"Operating The Chocolate Cup has been a true blessing for us, and we enjoy every aspect of this business. We love to provide quality service and premium products for our clients".

It’s almost that time of year again! Time for great music performances, film debuts, and interactive technologies to showcase their stuff during the highly popular SXSW festival in Austin TX.  In typical SXSW fashion, that means a crazy amount of networking events, company parties, and special programs promoting what the community has to offer.

If you are a party planner, corporation, artist, or just looking to host a special event, finding unique ways to impress out of towners and Austinites alike can be hard. Especially with the every growing registry of attendees, leaving party planning to the professionals is a must. The Chocolate Cup is privileged to be a part of such a wonderful city with many great event venues and event planning companies and SXSW usually has their own platform for booking events, which I personally recommend especially for large companies.

However, some of our preferred companies are Kurant Events, HighBeam Events, and Red Velvet Events just to name a few. Each of these companies specialize in different areas but we love them here at The Chocolate Cup! They provide great attention to detail and specialize in high volume, corporate functions and specialty events. And they are happy to incorporate our services into your party package as well.

Austin is full of great venues and areas to stay, but make sure to make your plans early. With my experience in both hospitality and catering, I would recommend with all seriousness to plan early! Especially your accommodations. For catering and party details I would allow at least 3-6 months of planning. If you are interested in working with us here at The Chocolate Cup we appreciate at least 1 month notice, which would be right about now! So please call us at 512-563-6326 or email us at info@thechocolatecup if you are interested in any specialty services for your party during SXSW.

The catering business has its share of busy months, but on the flip side there are also some months during the year where events just aren’t as prevalent. That could mean great news for those planning parties and functions during those months, because the savings can be great!

The holiday season is always one of the busiest for event venues, caterers, and wedding planners. And that’s where you will pay premiums to get the dates, times, and vendors you want. However once the holidays die down, parties tend to die down with it. Therefore, that’s where you can find some of the best savings!

Here at The Chocolate Cup, that’s not foreign to us and we would like to extend some great specials for those booking during January! We have a few great dates available so if you are getting married, having a birthday party, or just having a small get together with friends, let us know how we can help add a special touch to your event.

Talk to us here The Chocolate cup and let us know how we can make your January event a big hit!
