About this project

FUNDED! Stretch Goal of $15,000 to manufacture our chocolate chip blondie. We will include blondies in all backer's rewards if we reach this goal!

Welcome to Get Up an Go: A Convenient Alternative To Coffee, or Synthetic Energy Drinks

My name is Chris Bogdan, and I've been creating naturally caffeinated baked goods locally for a year and a half.

There is a lot of local support for our products, and I want to begin our first manufacturing run of our best-selling, naturally caffeinated chocolate chip cookie, as well as obtain printed packaging for it.

Get Up and Go is Delicious. Here's why:

  • Naturally caffeinated, no synthetic ingredients like many energy drinks. 
  • Convenient, Tasty, and Ready to GO when you are. 
  • An Alternative, or Compliment to your first cup.
  • Fast-Acting & Smooth Non-Jittery Energy
  • The value of a cup of coffee and baked good in one product, for a better price.

People Really Like What We're Doing

Amit Chowdhry, a Forbes Writer praises our products saying:

"There are tons of choices when it comes to energy drinks, but Get Up and Go is paving the way for a new concept that tastes good, unlike many of the energy drinks I have tried."

Our Core Products (All Equivalent to One Cup of Coffee):

Naturally caffeinated with coffee bean extract, guarana, yerba mate, and some with fine ground espresso.

1. Cinnamon Coffee Cake Muffin:  

Imagine sweet cinnamon streusel in your mouth, making your taste buds question why they've never experienced such a delicious sensation. Get stimulated...

6. Chocolate Chip Blondie

A caramelized treat, similar to cookie, but with the charisma of a brownie. It tastes so good that you won't know what you've been hit with, until you take a second bite.

Why We Need Your Help

Our goal is to manufacture our best-selling cookie and buy new printed packaging for it. With a manufacturer and more professional packaging, we will be able to sell to more universities, coffee shops, natural food stores, and convenience stores. We have a lot of work, but with your help we can successfully scale up and sell products in a store near you!

Help us obtain our goal, and get caffeinated with us!

Risks and challenges

We're doing our best to mitigate all risks and challenges, and will do everything we can. Some we may run into are:

1. Scaling up our recipes may take longer than we thought, but we will do everything we can so they can be delivered as scheduled.

2. People don't understand the concept of a caffeinated baked good. Hopefully we can show them that it's a baked good with the equivalent of a coffee inside.
