About this project
PLEASE STAY WITH US!
We have seen a good amount of decreased and canceled pledges after celebrating reaching our goal last night! We need to make sure we stay right around our goal as our total is fluctuating as people decrease pledge amounts. Just a reminder that at this point, we could still fall BELOW our goal so please keep sharing and we welcome NEW PLEDGES too! PLEASE STAY WITH US, we're almost there!
If we go over our goal, we'll be able to print off some very cute pints...
REWARD ADD-ON LEVEL IS HERE!
Add any of the amounts listed below to any LOCAL pledge level and you will get pints of our EXCLUSIVE Kickstarter flavor! Didn't back the Kickstarter and do an add-on? Sorry! This is gonna be an insanely yummy flavor, so don't miss out! If you like it a whole lot, we'll add it to our permanent rotation at a later date AND you get to vote on the name!
GIFT CERTIFICATE ADD-ON IS HERE!
Add $25, $50, $75, etc (must be $25 increments) to ANY reward level and we’ll throw in a gift certificate for that amount! For example, if you want the TOTE BAG + TREAT reward, but you’d also like a $25 gift certificate, CHOOSE the tote bag + treat reward ($25), but change the dollar amount to $50.
Hi! We are Chelsea & Chris of Seattle Cookie Counter!
And we are completely humbled by how many of you have supported us thus far. THANK YOU, thank you, thank you. We really couldn’t have done any of this without you. What started as a little dream to have a sweet vegan ice cream truck has really flourished into us feeling so much love from our Seattle community – you ALL contribute to us LOVING what we do! And to thank you, we want to bring you a place that you’ll love, this is for YOU.
After two successful summers in the truck, we are ready to open a shop! We want the space to be a fun and sweet gathering place, a place you want to bring your friends & family, and a place you truly feel good supporting!
We’ll be serving MORE than just ice cream & cookies. Our morning menu will consist of homemade plant based milk lattes, french press coffee, hand pies, gluten free pop tarts, breakfast cookies, and biscotti. Throughout the day we’ll be baking fresh cookies and pies so you can come in for a coffee and a treat…with plenty of seating to relax for a bit.
Having this shop will mean that we can continue to serve you fresh, small batch, organic treats. It will also mean that you’ll be able to find us easily – no more searching for the truck!!
We’re excited to offer a space that can accommodate many dietary preferences – everything will continue to be 100% vegan and ALWAYS will be. We are not a gluten free facility, but we will have many gluten free items: pop tarts, brownies, cookies, as well as gluten free ice cream cones!
What we need!
Below is a breakdown of the bare minimum of what we still need in order to bring you the sweetest little vegan bakery, espresso bar, and ice creamery! We have been able to purchase some necessities: two ovens, an industrial mixer, 3 commercial freezers, one ice cream maker, and various utensils.That said, there's still a lot we need to open a bakery from scratch...
We’ve matched up rewards as close to dollar for dollar that we can and we hope this helps you to feel that your support is sufficiently rewarded!
Thank you over and over again for your support! We think it's such a powerful thing to join together and bring this little shop to life! Thank YOU for helping us change the way people think about food. Changing minds about vegan food is one of our favorite parts of running this business.
PLEASE, please, please share our campaign far and wide, we won't get there without the help of our community!
Risks and challenges
We started our little business on a smaller scale Kickstarter campaign the first time around and we feel that we are very experienced Kickstarters because of it!
So, we are not too worried about reward fulfillment as we have a good idea about how much that will cost (in time & money). And we are smart enough this time around to have people help us with that! We’ve spaced out our rewards to give us time in fulfilling them and as a buffer in case our shop doesn’t open as soon as we hope.
We have been permitted with the health department previously so we are confident as far as knowing those requirements.
One challenge that we are aware of is that the whole process of opening up shop might take longer than expected – we are prepared for that, but are also going to work around the clock to get things in order asap!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
