- aI’m glad you could find time to meet with me, Mr. Johnson. I can’t think of a nicer environment for our meeting today, the ambiance here is lovely!
- bNo problem, if possible I always combine business with pleasure. Now, let’s hear more about these chocolates you’re offering.
- aWell, as you know, I have recently become the sole distributor for Grangers Gourmet Bon-bons here in the United States. They’re a new manufacturer and are looking to break into the luxury market. Naturally, your restaurant sprang into my mind immediately. I think your brand exemplifies many of the same traits as Grangers and serving these chocolates would really add to your reputation for providing elegant, luxurious, first class dining.
正如你所知，我最近刚成为Grangers Gourmet Bon-bons的美国唯一经销商。他们是一家新厂，想快速挺近奢侈品市场，自然，我就马上想到了你的饭店。我认为你们展示了很有像Grangers这样具有特色的品牌，为顾客提供这样的巧克力会增加您提供优雅，奢华，顶级食物的美誉。
- bHmmm, sounds interesting...gourmet chocolates, where are they produced? Belgium?
- aActually, the factory is located in Scotland.
- bReally? I didn’t think they were known for their luxury chocolate production
- aThat’s what makes this such a fantastic opportunity! The government is one hundred percent supportive of creating new export markets and has guaranteed a low tariff for all wholesale orders of over one thousand units. They’ve also reduced the red tape involved at customs as well. Here, I brought these especially for you, try one!
- bOh, thanks. Mmm, hmm, creamy texture, very smooth...
- aUnique, aren’t they? I bet you’ve never tasted anything like it! Quality is assured as I personally visit the factory to make sure no one’s cutting corners with the ingredients. Only the creme make it through inspection.
- bYes, very interesting flavors...Slightly spicy, very unique, that’s for sure. Exactly what ARE the ingredients?
- aI have it on highest authority that this traditional secret recipe has been handed down in the Granger family for generations. I’m sure you can keep a secret. Buttermilk, cacao beans, sugar and Haggis.
- bHaggis? What’s Haggis?
- aIt’s a traditional Scottish delicacy, you take sheep’s liver, heart and lung and stuff it inside of the sheep’s stomach.
- bAh, get back to you.
- aMr. Johnson? Mr. Johnson?
