100% Goal ...Project Funded! Thank you everyone for your incredible support! These last two days can make a further difference to help support some future products that we have in mind. Please consider backing if you can.

We here at JoJé Bar have experienced some amazing growth in just over one year! People from all walks of life and varied businesses are catching on to the uniqueness of JoJé Bars. It's truly love at first bite and we continually see people moving their heads in a "Yes-terly" direction!

Jess and I are asking for your help to raise the funds needed to meet the demand of larger orders so that we can bake, bake, bake more bars! Our goal is to expand our production into a larger-scale kitchen facility to drive costs down while still sourcing the same high-quality ingredients. This in turn will allow us to expand our market, increase sales, and continue fueling our growth plan.

Additionally, we seek funding to: 

  • Rebuild our website so that our retail and wholesale customers can order easily. 
  • Produce product samples.
  • Apply for certifications and testing.
  • Continue research and development for new product items.
  • Drive down overall cost of goods.

Together, we have put the time, effort, and energy into our 2018 business and growth plan. We've budgeted smartly for the items that we need to succeed. We are keenly aware of where we are today, where we need to be tomorrow, and how to get there! 

Funding of this project will aid in preparing ourselves as the larger, nationally known customers continue requesting JoJé Bars in their stores.

We work so hard to tell our story from magazine features to podcasts and everything in the middle, plus our charitable give back to No Kid Hungry. Lucky for us, some fine folks have listened and helped spread the JoJé love!

We are so grateful for the support and partnerships.

Now, it's all about financing our dream. Plus, we've got a few top secret new flavors and products that can certainly benefit from some R&D dollars. These are our "Stretch Goals" defined later in this campaign. 

We're excited about our growth and the future of JoJé Bar to become America's best tasting and nutritious brand of energy bar. Backing us by your support of this campaign you are helping two talented, creative, passionate and hardworking individuals to reach our goal. All of you can make the difference!

Risks and challenges

We see challenges ahead and it's no secret that the energy and nutrition bar market is a crowded space! However, we have proved time and again to be in demand due to our uniqueness in taste, texture, and nutrition! So, as larger national account customers show interest, we will have to begin working within distribution channels and agent brokers; and this always comes at a price! It's just the way it works.

Jess and I have done the hard work. Hours and hours of recipe formulation, ingredient sourcing, test baking, lab testing, packaging design and production, knocking on doors and years of selling, selling, selling (and always more to do).

We have poured our hearts into the mixing bowl of JoJe´ Bar and have funded this journey up until now entirely with our own money. John has recently left his career of over 20 years to run business and operations full time; talk about an all-in commitment! Is there risk in that? Sure. However, our growth and success to this point are clearly marking the trail ahead.

We see our challenges like the bright spot of the sun. We are not looking away! We are brave and bold in our resolve to succeed and help others in all aspects of our business. Plus, having a pair of sunglasses handy can always help too!

We are on the right path, so please come along with us by showing your support to give what you can!
