About this project
Do you have gluten intolerances? Do you know someone in your life who does? Most of us know someone who has been told they can no longer eat wheat and wheat gluten. For many, this is a devastating blow as bread is such a comforting food. This loss often creates a void that is hard to fill when faced with the tasteless, limited options of gluten-free products out there- until they discover eban bakery:gluten-free breads & baked goods. "You have brought joy back into my husband's life! He has Celiac's Disease and has missed good bread more than any other food. Your bread is absolutely delicious! Thank you, thank you, thank you!" -Jill in Bexley. "Just tried my first slice of eban bread, it was delicious. Adrienne and Eric have my standing order for one a week. My son will devour this bread." -Deb in Clintonville. "The Cranberry Walnut Coconut Oatmeal Cookies are the BEST I have every tasted! They are crunchy yet chewy and the flavors blend in your mouth to create a Huge smile on your face. I love to watch the expressions on friends faces when they take their first bite. How wonderful to be able to share the wonders of Gluten-free cookies and breads! EBAN bakery is going to revolutionize the gluten-free world. Thanks Eric and Adrienne for all your hard work!!!" -Donna in Westerville. "I just tasted the Flaxseed Oat Bread - slightly sweet, nice texture - not too dense, great blend of flavors - just a hint of molasses, a cozy combination of taste and airy texture that makes me think: this is how a healthy "Wonder Bread" would taste." -Vickie in Columbus. "I had some today - Michael brought a loaf to our church meeting. Kudos! I havent had bread in over a year, and yours was delicious!" -Lea in Columbus. "Gluten free cranberry walnut French Toast with bananas foster topping....unbelievable great taste....so many ways to enjoy bread again..Thanks Eban " -Tony in Columbus.
We are eban bakery: gluten-free breads and baked goods, a dedicated gluten-free bakery owned and operated by Adrienne C. Novak and Eric Michael Braddock, in Columbus, Ohio, providing our customers with exceptional gluten-free products. Our creativity, passion and love of good food in conjunction with seeing an ever-increasing demand for good-tasting gluten-free breads and baked goods was the impetus for starting this bakery and continues to be the driving force as we continue to grow.
We are exceeding our business goals at every turn since we started our bakery just 5 months ago. We have and continue to receive overwhelming support, praise and demand for our outstanding g/f breads and cookies. In order to meet this growing demand we are requesting funding to purchase much needed equipment to increase our productivity and reach more customers requesting our products from Massachusetts to California!
We would like to raise $25,000 to purchase: a 40-qt mixer, which will quadruple our productivity; a double convection oven; small wares equipment including commercial bread pans, electric bread slicer, baker’s racks and display racks for our retail stores.
Please help make our Gluten-Free Bakery expansion a reality by donating to our project today!
In September of 2011 we were a cottage industry, baking a few loaves of bread a week for friends and family out of our one-bedroom townhouse apartment kitchen. Within 3 months we were delivering over 180 loaves of bread and over 600 cookies a week out of that tiny space to 9 fine retailers in the greater Columbus area. We are now leasing a small kitchen and fervently growing our customer base as we pursue prospective accounts in the Dayton and Cincinnati areas and beyond.
Did we mention that contributing to this project is easy as pie?!
"I hear people saying how good it is but they are all people you have delivered bread to. How do all of us here (NW Ohio) that would like to support you by ordering, or spreading information by word of mouth, get some? Are you ready to start shipping?"-TJ in Perrysburg. "Do you ship to Kuwait? :) " -Deanna, U.S. Army. "Sounds great. Very limited on what I can get in Fremont. I just started a gluten free diet about 3 weeks ago, so this is all new to me." -Tina in Fremont.
