who wants bread made in a lab when you can have fresh, sustainably-sourced crustic delivered directly to your door?
what is crustic?
crustic is an artisan bread club based in long beach, california. we deliver freshly-baked bread directly from our commercial kitchen to our members’ homes or office locations.
what the heck is a bread club?
why do we consider ourselves a club, you ask? because we are exclusive. we make bread special. we don’t buy into the idea that bread is a boring staple food, one that is best thrown into your shopping cart in bulk as an afterthought, regardless of when it was baked, who baked it, and what went into it. we believe that everyone, regardless of how busy you are, should have access to freshly-baked bread made with the highest quality organic ingredients possible, by bakers with whom you have a personal relationship. bread should be fun, with flavors that surprise you, awaken your creativity, and make you smile because it is just so darn good.
that’s where we come in. we source our ingredients, from all of our flours to our dried fruits and chocolate with the utmost care, choosing organic whenever possible. we deliver directly to our bread club members (who sign up for three month memberships up-front) immediately after baking, so unless you are baking your own, it literally doesn’t get any fresher than this. each of our deliveries consists of one “basic” bread of your choice, along with a “specialty” bread of the month, giving our customers both an element of control and a total surprise every time they get a crustic delivery (we also post a “serving suggestion” of the month on our blog, to help you out in case you have no idea what to do with your bread). we package our loaves in 100% recycled packaging, and donate a loaf of bread to a homeless shelter in Long Beach for each crustic club member.
what's the point of this kickstarter page?
okay, so all of that sounds pretty good right? what’s the point of this kickstarter page, then? ah, so glad you asked! crustic is a super-new business venture that we started up just a month ago, and there have definitely been some bumps along the way. we are very excited about our product and our concept, but we need some help.
that’s where you come in. we are in desperate need of a mixer, as our commercial kitchen doesn’t have one, and at this point, every single loaf of bread is mixed individually by hand. having a professional-grade mixer to do our initial ingredient blending would save us an incredible amount of time, allowing us to focus on kneading and hand-shaping all of our loaves. we would also love to have the flexibility to pursue some more marketing options. we’re not talking 60-second commercials during the super bowl here, we just need a limited amount of capital to get us into some local festivals, events, and markets to give crustic some exposure and allow more people to taste and fall in love with our bread. lastly, we are also looking into expanding the wholesale side of crustic, as we would love to get into some local restaurants and cafes, but don’t currently have the funding to do so.
we are ever-so-grateful for any and all support that you can send our way… whether it’s a “like” on facebook or a monetary donation. thank you!!!
