I started my lease last month in Country Club Hills, IL. Now all I need for the Grand Opening of JordyCakes Cake and Cupcake Boutique is a double convection oven, a double door refrigerator, a freezer, a stainless steel table and my faithful customers!

Risks and challenges

While I have found a great location in Country Club Hills, I now have to deal with the extra expenses incurred by transitioning from a home-based business to an actual storefront. Now instead of my parents paying all of the bills, I have to pay them myself!!! I am excited about the opportunity that my new space will afford me to accept more of the orders that I have been forced to turn away due to my limited space and to interact with my clients in a professional environment.
I have calculated my initial startup expenses at $40,000. I have already raised a portion of this money with my personal savings along with generous contributions from family members and friends. I am praying that my Kickstarter supporters will help me to raise the additional money that I need!
