About Spindler Confections
My name is Jeremy Spindler and I am the owner/creater of Spindler Confections. I am a confectioner specializing in high quality small batch Caramels, Fudges, Brittles, Nougats and other candies.
My traditional hand made, hand cut, hand wrapped Salted Vanilla Caramel serves as my signature item alongside specialties such as the Marbled Walnut Caramel (Vanilla Caramel marbled with Vanilla Nougat & Walnuts), and the Maple Walnut Caramel.
What's this Kickstarter for?
All funds raised will go towards the cost of acquiring needed equipment and supplies, and the proper licenses & permits to enable sales and advertising to the general public (board of health inspection, business certificate, boxes, labels, bulk ingredients, etc).
All items will be made from scratch in my kitchen in Somerville, Massachusetts. Truly Home Made!
A bit about me!
I began making candies, cookies, and other confections as a child with the guidance and knowledge of my mother Debra - she has herself been making candy since childhood. After many years of making quality confections for friends, family, colleagues, parties, and other events, I am now turning my homegrown talent into a very small somewhat artisanal - yet very old-fashioned - candy business!
Motivation for Starting my Business
In addition to pleasing customers, one of the primary goals of Spindler Confections is to provide high quality hand made old-fashioned candies at a reasonable price, and on a small scale. I am a huge fan of exceptional old-fashioned traditional treats such as caramels, nougats, fudges, nut clusters, and pecan logs. From my perspective, it has become increasingly difficult to find affordable great tasting confections, especially ones that aren't filled with preservatives, or made on huge factory equipment.Spindler Confections provides small batch, high quality, exceptional candies that are affordable, fresh, and hand crafted. I can achievable this through maintaining a low overhead, building a strong return customer base, and simple (but effective) packaging methods.
In addition to direct sales of individual boxes, I also plan on offering large packages for special events, and custom favors for parties and receptions (wedding, baby, birthday, anniversary, etc).
Help Spindler Confections get a solid foot on the ground by pledging your support. You will be treated to some tasty rewards in April!
If I surpass my goal, I plan on taking some courses at the Cambridge School of Culinary Arts to learn more about traditional techniques of candy making and the science behind sugar. I also intend to experiment with developing some new products.
