About

Football season just ended a few weeks ago, but do you already miss it like we do?

That's why we are getting for Fall Kickoff right now! If you are any kind of sports fan at all, you may have heard of a Snackadium. If not - well, sure you could Google it - but please allow us to give you our official definition.

SNACKADIUM [sna-kay-dee-uh-m] noun.
1) A stadium filled with snacks!
2) A necessary addition to any sports-themed party that fans of all kinds need to have.
3) Singular usage: A food container or pan that is designed and molded in such a way as to resemble a sports stadium, arena, field, gymnasium, track, rink, amphitheatre, stage, or coliseum.
4) Plural usage: A set or series of food containers or pans that are designed and molded in such a way that, when they are assembled, they resemble a sports stadium, arena, field, gymnasium, track, rink, amphitheatre, stage, or coliseum . . . or heck, even a hippodrome!

Now, every sports fan can make their game day party snacks as memorable as the game itself!

We do have plans for an entire line of pan designs; however, for this particular Kickstarter campaign, we are raising funds for the BIG ONE: the tiered, multi-pan Snackadium set.

It is eleven pieces, and these containers are made with a process called plastic injection molding: think Tupperware-style pans only multi-tiered and way, WAY awesome! These food containers are fully customizable and are easy to store. They are reusable, dishwasher-safe, and microwave-safe!

Easy to clean, easy to store!

We have already paid our design team and have the schematics ready to roll. We have registered our trademark, and we are in the process of finalizing our patents; but we need YOU to help us bring this bad boy to the market. The dies needed for the plastic injection molds are pricey, and we don't have houses that we can mortgage (just a couple of LA renters right now).

Again, we know that football season just ended, but that is why we started this campaign now - we want to have it in your hands before your fantasy football league has its draft party in the Fall!

Now, you may be saying, "But I'm not even a football fan . . . "

Point taken. Even if you're not a football fan, this product is for sports fans of every type: football, baseball, basketball, hockey, racing, tennis, MMA, pro wrestling, cricket and even soccer (the other futbol)! We currently have designs and patents pending on various Snackadiums such as multi-pan sets, single-pan pieces, aluminum foil versions, and a wide array of sports like baseball, basketball, MMA and more!

So, now, you may be saying, "But I'm not even a sports fan . . . "

Truthfully, the Snackadium isn't just for sports. Because it is customizable, it can be used for many types of parties; but we figured a lot more people would use this for their fantasy football draft parties or weekend football gatherings than people that would use it to put out a nice spread of lox and bagels at their son's bris (side question: do you think that would be called a Snack-cision or a Circum-stadium?).

ANY-WHO, back to point. We really need your help.

There are TWO things we need from you:

1) Donate to our campaign. Easy math: if just 50,000 sports fans gave $10 each, we would be able to fund this thing in less time than it takes to watch an actual sporting event. Skip one movie this week, and throw some cash our way. You'll get a special thanks on our website!

2) Help us get the word out! Please take just a few minutes to forward this link to everyone you know, and please share it on any and all of your social networks. There are millions of sports fans out there; and the more people that get excited about this, the more likely we are to see it become a reality!

Please check out the rewards on the side of this page, and get yourself some gear!

Finally --- THANK YOU! Thanks for your time and for your partnership. We could not do this without you . . .

. . .Now, go donate some money and help us spread the word! Boom.

Risks and challenges

Our biggest risk on the front end is the cost of actually producing the product. As mentioned in the description above, we've already paid the design team and gotten the patents and trademarks rolling. However, the three dyes needed for the injection plastic molding process cost money that we don't have. We have manufacturing and packaging companies ready to roll with it, and we are beginning with an online distribution model.

Once we successfully complete this campaign, our biggest challenge will be to bring awareness to the mass media. This is where we have some obstacles to overcome, but this is where you can help us!
- We want to connect with a quality PR team.
- We want to partner with a major, snack food supplier in order to develop a cookbook with recipe and design ideas.
- We want to get a celebrity chef to endorse it.
- We want to get it into the major grocery chains.
- Then, we want to move onto phase 2 of the Snackadium, which is producing all of the various pan types (again, see in the description).

All of these steps take connections that we don't, necessarily, have. So anything you can do to help us build a massive social network will be amazing!
