From home-made to market, that's the quick and easy story about Sissys. From a small home kitchen producing gourmet biscuits and chocolates for friends and family, Sylvia Kliska launched her venture in 1994, as 'Sissys Bix', and moved to her current factory shop location in Blackburn (Vic.) in 2000.
The biscuit and chocolate market is littered with large companies who invest more into their packaging than improving the taste-quality of their products. Sissys does the opposite and gives taste buds a run for their money. By all accounts, the strategy is succeeding. In recent years, Sissys product has been on sale in quality store outlets, sold in bulk to 4-5 star hotels, restaurants, caterers, and is often an addition in top-shelf hampers.
Sissys factory shop also operates as a retail shop-front and has a made-to-order service where clients can select products for their basket, or for ornately-wrapped gifts and hampers, from a wide range ofbiscuits, petit fours and chocolates. Corporate and made-to-order hampers are a specialty.
Then in recent years, chocolate-making classes have become a popular event as a gift-giving idea or something for the chocolate lover to indulge in. Sissys classes range from the beginners 'introductionto chocolate-making', to more advanced and specialised events. Even hens-nights and childrens parties are catered for.
