Kim Kramer loves the same things most of
us love: her husband, her three boys, and chocolate (not
necessarily in that order). A native of the Midwest, Kim
settled north of Boston in the seaside town of
Marblehead to raise her family. And that’s where the
idea for Dipt was born.
“Growing up in Cleveland,
chocolate-covered popcorn was always one of my favorite
treats. Every time we went to special events like
graduations or weddings there were always
chocolate-covered dessert trays and they went FAST!
But when I moved to Marblehead over 10 years ago,
companies who specialized in chocolate-covered creations
were scarce. I knew there was a business opportunity
there but at the time we were raising three boys and
life was too hectic to develop a business. But I never
let the idea go.”
In 2008, Kim’s youngest son
went to kindergarten, giving her the spare time she
needed to cultivate a business plan. She did her
research, ordered a few pounds of specialty chocolate,
and started creating.
By October 2009, Kim
dipped her first two trays of chocolate—one for a dinner
party and the other for a condolence call. Within two
days the phone started ringing and almost two years
later, it hasn’t stopped.
Dipt was born.
was mostly a word-of-mouth business until Kim created a
Dipt fan page on Facebook. The decadent hand-dipped and
drizzled creations had a growing fan base and the timing
was right for Diptonline.com.
From there, the Dipt
line expanded to offer Dipt-to-go mini treat boxes, Dipt
trays for larger events, Dipt gift boxes, and an
endless array of custom Dipt creations.
each decadent chocolate gift is custom made and
creatively presented as handmade edible art.
The possibilities are endless...no two are alike. If you can imagine
it, Kim can bring your creation to life.
whether you're looking for a memorable dessert for your
holiday table, a unique gift, or
centerpieces and favors for your special event...Dipt
will surely impress!
everything’s better in chocolate.”
