Bringing Willy Wonka to Life

We’ve all marveled at the magical world of the chocolate factory from Roald Dahl’s legendary book. With a surprise around every corner, it’s no wonder the stories from that book and movie are still popular today. But have you ever wondered what it would take to bring that fantasy world to life? Well, we at Advanced Technology Services ran the numbers and calculated what it would roughly cost to bring the Chocolate Factory to life!

Not surprisingly, this would be no cheap feat. To even keep the lights on at the factory would cost upwards of $2 million a year. And that’s nothing when compared to the costs of the chocolate river. We’re talking about 150,000 gallons of liquid chocolate, which will set you back over $30 million. Check out the infographic below for the estimate if Mr. Wonka wanted to go organic with his chocolate river.

We of course had to include the costs of the Oompa Loompa’s salaries and healthcare. Without them, there’s no chocolate factory! And what’s the chocolate factory without the flying elevator from the last scene of the film? That can’t be cheap! For all the calculations and more, continue reading below!
