WHAT IS SWEETOLOGY
Sweetology is a canvas for creativity, filled with fun, sprinkled with delightful conversation and topped with satisfied smiles. From ages 2 to 92, every visit to Sweetology is a one-of-a-kind adventure creating unique cake and cupcake designs in our workshop; shopping our amazing collection of delectable treats, candy, chocolates and gifts; attending a class; hosting a party; or settling into a cozy chair to enjoy a cup of coffee, hot chocolate or a cocktail paired with one of our delicious bakery items. It’s a fun-filled chance to make a little magic by putting your heart into something deliciously fun for someone special.
Sweetology began as a dream of two entrepreneur moms. We wanted to create a business that was new and novel and just plain fun! The inspiration for Sweetology began in 1979, when Kara's mom made her a cake for her birthday inspired by the cover of Seventeen Magazine. The cake wasn't professional but it was perfect because it was made with love. More than thirty years later, we have captured that magic in Sweetology, the place where you go with your kids, grandkids, friends, business companions to unleash your creative decorator. It's delicious fun!
Sweetology's flagship store was opened in April 2014 to very positive feedback and reviews. It is currently in the Top 25 things to do in St. Louis http://vacationidea.com/destinations/best-things-to-do-in-st-louis.html and was recently highlighted by the Missouri Economic Development Department https://youtu.be/SkLYcMKJqPU as well as the St. Louis Business Journal http://www.bizjournals.com/stlouis/print-edition/2015/10/30/st-louis-character-kara-newmark.html. In short, Sweetology is growing and we want to Take The Cake on the Road while creating 3D Chocolate Fun!
Sweetology is using its Kickstarter campaign to raise money to purchase and implement a 3D Chocolate Printer AND airbrush technology to enhance the fun and creativity at Sweetology. If we surpass our initial goal, we plan to Take the Cake on the Road in our "Sweetmobile!" Here is an example of how the money will be used. Our goal, at a minimum, is $20,000. If we raise...
- $20,000 we will purchase a 3D chocolate printer and airbrush technology to enhance the fun
- $45,000 we will also Take the Cake on the Road by purchasing a mobile decorating bar, the "Sweetmobile"
- $75,000 we will also enhance our e-commerce abilities in order to take Sweetology to any kitchen anytime bringing the delicious fun to everyone
- $200,000 we will also open the next store... perhaps in your city!
Here is our dream...Sweetology will have the first 3D chocolate printer for retail use in the country. Think of the fun. Not only do you get to decorate the perfect birthday cake but you can top it with a chocolate profile of the birthday girl or boy or build a 3D chocolate truck to place on top. The only limit is your imagination!
Additionally, we want to get the creativity to as many people as we can. Imagine rolling the Sweetmobile into your corporate parking lot to say thank you to your staff for a job well done or to provide entertainment at your company picnic. Picture your child’s face when the Sweetmobile parks in front of your home for a decorating birthday party at your door.
Initially, we are seeking $20,000 to purchase the 3D chocolate printer and airbrush technology. If we exceed our goal then we will "rollout" the Sweetmobile mobile decorating bar. If we surpass our $45,000 we will use the money to enhance our online store and begin developing our next store... perhaps in YOUR city!
Risks and challenges
Any start-up has risks but Sweetology has proven that its concept not only works but is fun and in high demand. Sweetology has 18 months of operations under its belt and has successfully met demand time and time again. We have a strong and established relationship with a reputable and delicious St. Louis supplier that is currently operating under capacity. However, if an unforeseen circumstance would occur, Sweetology could easily pivot to another local wholesaler for its supplies.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
