Help Build Kimberley's Kitchen

CA$ 6,005

57

Thanks to my loyal fans and customers, Kimberley's Kitchen has grown over the past 4 years. I am truly grateful for every person that has supported me.

I launched Kimberley's Kitchen with a mission to bring good treats to people across Canada. We use real, whole, high quality ingredients, most of which are organic, local or Fair Trade. Not only do these foods taste better, it is important to me that I am procuring ingredients that have a positive social and economic impact on the communities that produce them. Kimberley's Kitchen hand-crafts small batch confections and fine foods that are available online, and in retailers and restaurants.

My core values:

  • Quality
  • Sustainability
  • Integrity
  • Community

I endeavour to Do Things Differently. Organic Ingredients. Real food flavors. Sustainable packaging. These aspects of Kimberley's Kitchen will never change. 

I need your help to Build Kimberley's Kitchen!

This year is an exciting time with many opportunities opening up for my business. I love what I do and have been offered a large wholesale and distribution opportunity that is a dream for me. In order to meet the current and future demand for my online, retail, and wholesale customers, it is time to build my own commercial kitchen. My own kitchen would make it possible for me to work when I can, hire more staff to help, and bring Kimberley's Kitchen to more folks across Canada.

How will I use your pledges?

This project entails installing a commercial kitchen in a bare space. I need to purchase appliances and furnishings, and pay for trades people to renovate the space for a kitchen. I have already invested my money in legal fees, insurance, equipment and supplies. 

Construction is scheduled to begin in January 2015!

Once complete, my commercial kitchen will allow me to serve the demand for wholesale, retail, and online orders that are growing steadily each month. It will also make it possible for me to continue to expand my product offering and find other distribution channels so that Kimberley's Kitchen can be in your favorite store!

Connect With Me!

THANK YOU!

To each and everyone of you who has donated to my Kickstarter Campaign! Together we will build Kimberley's Kitchen so the world can enjoy our high quality, sustainable, organic treats!

Risks and challenges

Potential challenges with this construction project could be delays in the electrical and plumbing work. I have accommodated for this by scheduling trades people far in advance and during a slow season. I have received estimates for work and budgeted for the high end of the estimates.

In order to ensure the kitchen meets health inspection requirements, I have already consulted with the local health authority on the plans to anticipate a smooth inspection.
