Although you can purchase a chocolate fountain for a reasonable price but if you prefer, more and more catering companies are now renting them. Although prices will vary depending on the company and on the size of fountain being rented, you would expect to pay around $400. Now, if you order your fountain from companies then you also need to add in shipping, which again will vary depending on where you live in comparison with the company's location.
Typically, you would want to reserve your rental about a month in advance. In addition, we recommend you follow up with the company, re-confirming your rental reservation about one week prior to the event. Then, you will receive boxes that have everything needed to assemble your fountain, which is usually no more than four pieces. Included in the box would be directions, showing you how each piece fits together, set up and break down instructions, recommendations for chocolate and fruit/cake/cookies, and customer service contact in case you need assistance.
How it Works
Of all the equipment items that you rent for your party or wedding, the chocolate fountain will be the most impressive. The fountain is designed almost like a tiered cake. As the chocolate melts in the reservoir at the bottom, the pump will send the melted chocolate up to the top where it begins to flow downward. Soon, each tier is covered with chocolate as it flows from one tier to another. Keep in mind that if you are using a professional caterer, chances are they can rent the chocolate fountain to you as a part of the overall package.
Then comes the fun part of choosing the type of chocolate and foods you will be serving your guests. As the chocolate fountain sits on the table, you can place beautiful coordinating flowers around the base for decoration. Then, place napkins, plates, and skewers on the table for the guests to use. Sometimes, if the event is large, then you might consider renting more than one fountain, choosing two different types of chocolate. However, whether you choose milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or white chocolate, you can be sure everyone will love it.
For foods, we recommend you choose fresh fruit to include strawberries, raspberries, grapes, pineapple, orange slices, and kiwi. Then other foods such as pound cake, angel food cake, or sugar cookies are ideal. In addition, you can set up a soft serve ice cream machine next to the fountain so people can make hot fudge sundaes. Keep in mind that when you rent a chocolate fountain, these machines are also designed to be used for cheese, barbecue sauce, and caramel
