Have It Sweet is movin' on up! To a new kitchen, to Farmer's Markets and into retail stores. But we need the new space and a staff.
Vincent and I, Bethany, started Have It Sweet three and half years ago. It was always a dream for us to have our own confections business but we just didn't know how we could do it. It was impossible to find a place that would rent to us in their off hours for insurance reasons. After much searching we found an incubator (the technical term for shared commercial kitchen) in Los Angeles. They were great and we have been there ever since but the kitchens are tiny and we aren't allowed to bring in help we are also at the mercy of scheduling which can be tough and very tight. We had been looking to open our own candy shop but after quite a few failed attempts to find a viable space we almost threw in the towel until we found Chef's Center in Pasadena, CA. They specialize in helping small businesses like ours grow and eventually open our their own space.
We are very excited to be able to grow in this way, we will be able to bring help in with us to this new kitchen, scheduling is easier and it is truly a beautiful space run by a wonderful non-profit right here in Southern California.
Our plan is to become a local presence in Los Angeles, we will be selling our confections at some of the local Farmer's Markets, like Century City, Santa Monica, Pasadena, and a few others. We will also be regulars at many of the local artisinal events and street fairs. In addition to this we will also be selling our confections wholesale to many local and nationwide businesses (i.e. Whole Foods) and expanding our already flourishing online business.
So what will your pledges help us accomplish? You will be helping us to get into our new bigger more flexible kitchen, buy new equipment to produce our confections faster, Farmer's Market Supplies and hire some employees. This new kitchen is essential in our growth, we need a place that is more flexible and able to work with us towards our goal of eventually having our own candy shop in the very near future.
Thank you so much in advance for taking a look at this project.
Bethany and Vincent
