Help Sweet Bones open their own joint!! We have been supplying to cafes all over Canberra and it's time to start our own place!
Fitting out a cafe has been a great challenge, there have been many hidden costs and lots of regulations to follow. We are so close to opening but we need your help to get to the final stage! Some things we need to do is get another oven, hire staff and pay for all the finishing touches.
Just to give you an idea of who we are...
Emily is a qualified chef with over 13 years experience in the food industry. She has an associates degree in culinary arts from The Academy of Culinary Arts in New Jersey and she is also a certified raw food chef and instructor from Living light International in Fort Bragg, California. She has been the raw food chef at Organic Energy in Canberra for the past 3 years, teaching raw food classes through Principles of Health with Karen Medbury, Stella Ashton and Laura Grande. She has always had a passion for food and service ever since she was a child; partly due to her brothers encouragement (they love food and being served). She was inspired by her uncles having their own restaurants, pizzerias and her parents amazing edible garden.
Russell is equally as passionate about food, but his expertise lies in the coffee department. He had been addicted for years before he started his training with Lonsdale Street Roasters, Canberra's own talented roasters. Russell is an avid BMXer (obsessed with all things 2 wheels), which has fueled his appetite for good coffee and good food. He has been in the food industry for the past 5 years working with Organic Energy in Griffith, and being a professional taste tester and flavor creator at Sweet Bones.
Together Emily and Russell are Sweet Bones.
Sweet Bones is about unique, creative, vegan whole foods that appeal to people who enjoy great food with no compromise on health or quality. We'd like to bring likeminded people together through involvement in community events such as bike races, art exhibitions and sourcing as much local and organic ingredients we can find.
Please help us open our dream cafe! If you're in the area check out our progress at shop 8/27 lonsdale street Braddon, ACT! Any questions feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Risks and challenges
Running a kitchen will require a team effort. We will learn about inefficiencies of recipe production and have to deal with these in a timely fashion.
We currently have 8 wholesale customers and once we open we will have to maintain our high quality products for them, for our shop, as well as fulfill our Kickstarter rewards.
This will be possible because we have conducted test runs to calculate labor, food and distribution costs to make sure we set the rewards at the right amount.
We are really confident that we will be able to maintain our high quality foods for Sweet Bones and our wholesalers, our great customer service, and fulfill all our rewards. We have hired a great team of chefs, talented decorators, and friendly knowledgeable staff. We are excited to tackle any challenges that may come our way!
