STRETCH GOAL!!! $1,500
Reaching $1,500 would enable me to have a small professional website created covering several months hosting so that people from all over the United States and further could have the opportunity to try these Addictive Cookies.
STRETCH GOAL!!! $1,000
Initial Goal was set to purchase the bare minimum baking and packaging supplies. If I should reach $1000 I could purchase enough supplies to sustain me over a longer period of time. Also, I would like to have a logo designed and labels created.
Initial Goal Funded. I'm Thrilled.
I'm hoping to get a little help to start selling these Addictive Cookies That You Must Taste to assist with my college expenses.
These cookies are pretty famous but they are truly Addictive the way my mom makes them. Mom only made them for fundraisers from time to time but people would be always ask if she would make them some personal cookies. She rarely did because she just wasn't into selling cookies.
Well with me unable to find a job she thought it might be a good idea for me to take up those wanted orders so I can help with my school expenses. I decided to give it a try and the people began asking me to make them cookies as well.
Unfortunately, the little mixer I was using didn't hold out (it was too small anyway) and I find myself in need of a bigger, better, professional mixer to make the cookies. I'd also like to get a few supplies to get this really going and some decorative containers for a pretty presentation.
I'm hoping you all will assist me in this venture and also get a chance to taste this addiction.
Here is the approximate costs to get a good start.:
6 quart Professional Mixer - $280.00
Baking utensils, pans, cookie sheets - $100.00
Bubble wrap, mailing supplies - $50.00
Presentation supplies - $50.00
Initial Baking supplies - $50.00
Kickstarter other fees $70.00
This isn't Potato Salad, but who knows what more I could do given the opportunity.
Thanks to you all in advance.
A few comments from the cookies tasters:
"Debra: Omg. The cookies are BOMB. I'm not ready to share them at all"
"Sherry: I just can't stop eating them... I know I should stop, but I can't"
"Brenda" Girl, smh. These are soooo good. I've had others but they are not the same. Girl, yours are the best"
"Carol from a fundraiser: Hey, I know you don't sell them but could you please make me some. I'll pay whatever your price is"
"Fundraiser participant: I think these are the cookies my husband is always raving about. I'm going to get this container for him and one cookie for myself, he'll be surprised". (She comes back 20 minutes later and gets another container from the fundraiser)"
"Winfield: These are unreal. You really can't stop eating them"
"Ms. Gladys: I took my cookies to bed with me and stayed in bed all day eating cookies"

I can hard wait to get started again, Thanks so much!!!
Risks and challenges
Challenges for me is finding the right products to ship the cookies without them breaking up. Cookies are so light and soft they must be handled with extreme care. I've mailed some many times before and they arrived all broken but the recipients joked and laughed that they didn't care because they were so delicious.
I know I'll eventually master this mailing process.
Also, I'd like to send cookies international so I'll work on that.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
