Why did GNGR switch from Chocolates to Silver and gold?
-
Many may recall the program I created when I marketed a pure silver ingot with every fudge purchased. What I discovered was more sales were made for the fudge just because there was a FREE 1/10th ounce pure silver coin included with each box of fudge. What is more interesting is that multiple units of fudge were ordered by the same people who wanted to give them as gifts but requested that I NOT include the silver in each fudge, but to give all the silver to the purchaser rather than to the recipiants.

GNGR may still produce confections at a later date but after decades of massive overhead and struggling and never achieving profits, the casting is now profitable and we are in the black. What is interesting is how we went from chocolates and fudge, then offered FREE silver in each one pound fudge and saw the silver was why they purchased more fudge, to fading out of chocolates and fudge into all silver and gold sales. People who love chocolates buy silver and gold and people who buy silver and gold love chocolates.
 






Still available but likely not to sell unless people collect the democratic candidtate in the general election.

Share the links on the "Web Links' page with freinds to help GNGR sell only 1000 pins to cover OTC current costs OR buy one yourself as a collectible!
The question was:
A) Do we want to sell items worldwide that cost between $20 and $2000 each with low overhead and prepaid?
or
B) Do we want to sell $1.50 candy bars and $6.00 fudge locally that don't ship well, and have huge overehad requiring financing?

With this new business model that uses the same mold technology I used to make confections, why would GNGR not take the opportunity to focus on what is working, which was discovered by accident by offering silver bullion with each fudge. Wrigley's gum started out as a SOAP company who offered FREE gum in each box of soap. The problem was the soap was horrible but the gum was delicious (juicy fruit). Soon after, they stopped making soap and focused on gum and the Wrigley's candy company was born. I am sure they could have taken the profits from the gum to make better soap but why bother if the gum is working so well. GNGR can also go back to chocolates and fudge as easily as plugging in the machines and making fudge but why bother if this new format is working so well.

The items are currently selling on many websites including ebay and etsy, as well as through distributors and on additional websites. GNGR will also help market the items on google searches as well as partnering with the 1000's of political advertising collectible websites.

I have just started to contact more sanctuaries and wildlife rescue organizations with great response. I have been receiving consistent orders for the few titles I make (chimp, fox, bats and a few others) and the sea turtle program is in the works. Other items selling well include the skull line, Gothic line, zombie line and custom commissioned pieces. I have some art galleries who want custom made pieces they can sell in their galleries with designs they create and sell as limited editions to their clients.

The fact is, there is no shortage or ideas or buyers. Many will say the jewelry market is saturated. Google silver jewelry or ebay search and so much is available that one must ask: HOW can GNGR enter this market and succeed? It is because GNGR is making what no one else does and finding markets no one else has. It's that simple. Plus low overhead and superior molds keep our costs down and prices low and quality higher than the competition.

As I have stated many times, GNGR is not out of business. In fact, we are making a comeback with a new business model that I anticipate will be bigger and better than the confection line that required GOBS of money just to maintain a facility regardless of whether we had orders or not. Unlike the confection business, the casting costs less than $300 a month rent and with NO wasted money on dead inventory. The casting inventory is silver and gold and retains its FULL CASH value even just sitting in the vault before being made into the final product.

All orders are prepaid so NO financing is needed.

ONCE GNGR achieves its target financial goal, GNGR will become a current OTC company once again with posted info and financials. For now we're WORKING HARD to make it happen.
