YOU DID IT!!!!!
We reached our funding goal yesterday afternoon!!!! - Thank you all for your generous support and for going the extra mile to help us to spread the word about the shop.
Keep the pledges coming - folks have 9 more days to pledge for discounts - and every dime over our goal (minus the 8% that Kickstarter and Amazon take) will go towards dialing in the doughnut shop - we are still raising funds for a lighted sign, a cake doughnut depositor, a jam filling pump, and an ice cream freezer (imagine biting inro a doughnut ice cream sandwich!?!?!@?#*%).
Now that our goal funding is secure we are able to move forward with the build-out of the front espresso bar and retail area. The plumber and the carpenter have been summoned - and a plan is set in motion to start the espresso bar next week. We are half way though the final inspection process - waiting on two more signatures next week and we will open the doors (even if the espresso bar is only half finished).
I haven't forgotten that I promised a Super-Secret Doughnut tasting event for Kickstarter donors ONLY. It is coming early next week!!! I will announce the date and time this weekend.
Cheers to you my sweet doughnut loving people.
