A few years ago I received a phone call from Scott. He had developed a Chocolate Fountain that is the best on the market. Being a diecaster, I did not know what a chocolate fountain is and what a hit it would be. I worked with Scott to develop this fountain. It turned out to be great. It not only melt chocolate, but carmel and cheese also. My wife forced me into buying one for her when they were on the market. Soon after introduction, a cheap inexpensive model was showing up everywhere. Scott literally lost several thousand dollars because his was a better and more expensive model. Another American company closed due to cheaply priced and poor quality competitors.
