Quotes from people who tried Pasta Pappone pastas at local farmers markets:
"This is the best pasta I've ever had!"
"I don't typically like pasta, but having the flavors makes cooking more fun!"
"This pasta is great to give as a gift!"
"You can really taste the flavors and ingredients!"
"I didn't know you could even make pasta with flavors INSIDE it?!"
"You aren't going to post these comments on the internet, are you?"
"Why are you writing down everything I am saying?"
Yes, the pasta is awesome.
While traditional plain pasta can be very enjoyable, Pasta Pappone looks to take a fun, flavorful twist on this classic cuisine. One of the best parts about cooking pasta is matching the flavors of the sauces and paired foods, so why not make it even more exciting by infusing these exciting flavors right INTO the pasta?!
Over the past two summers we have been selling this amazing pasta at farmers markets around the Chicagoland area. We have loved meeting customers and building a steady following of "Papponers" who come back each week to their local market to buy more of their favorites or try a new flavor.
However, as the cold Midwest winter has brought the outdoor markets to a close, many people have been reaching out about opportunities to buy Pasta Pappone outside the farmers markets. That is where Kickstarter comes in.
Risks and challenges
We are looking to send our flavored pasta right to peoples' doors through online ordering of our pasta packs. So...what will the Kickstarter funds be used for?
The majority of the funds will go to product ingredients and packaging. We have a new partner in Chicago to help us produce the pasta, but we still need to continue to source the all-natural, Midwest grown ingredients to give Pasta Pappone pasta its signature flavor.
In addition, while we love bagging the pasta right in front of you at the farmers market, we need something a bit more stable and complete in which to package the pasta. This will also allow us to address recent inquiries by local gourmet food stores about placing our products on their shelves. Exciting times for Pasta Pappone!
In order to do all these fun things, we need your help! But don't worry, your support will yield a bountiful harvest of pasta upon your door.
As with any project, the will be challenges. If our project is successfully funded, one risk is producing enough pasta to fill the demand of rewards. In order to address this risk, we have contacted extra sources for ingredients, and have talked with additional production facilities to use their capacity should the need arise. More than anything, we intend to keep all backers informed and up to date during every step of the process, good news or bad.
The greatest challenge we face is in the packaging process. While we have tested several methods of packaging and shipping, this new element to our pasta could experience some hiccups. We will continue to perfect our methods prior to the funding date to ensure reliability and timeliness, and as always, keep all funders in the loop every step of the way.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
