The Plump Peacock Bakery is a popular Farmers Market vendor becoming a full-on bakery, serving up its decadence 7 days a week.

After 3 years as a popular vendor in the Louisville area farmers markets, the Plump Peacock Bakery plans to open its first location in late 2013. This charming bakery will specialize in French and European pastries, including muffins, breads, pies and cakes. Liz’s signature Maple Bacon Muffins have been especially coveted. The comfortable and inviting atmosphere will have old world charm with antique furniture and European decor to appeal to the local community in the Louisville, Ky. suburb of Pewee Valley. Plump Peacock will also serve lunch 6 days/week with soups, salads and sandwiches, with plans to offer catering for parties and events 6-8 months after the Grand Opening. With the perfect location chosen, I need your help to outfit the space with all the tools I need to make incredible pastries and food.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

I know the first year of any business, kinks have to be worked out, and something always comes up. The only way to take on the challenge is to meet it head on, one step at a time. All clichés aside, this is going to be tough, but I love what I do and will always be there for my bakery and staff. As for specific problems that might arise, I have no idea how to predict what is going to happen. You just have to be flexible and go with it.

FAQ

  • Yes, it's true. We've hit a major roadblock with the initial site we fell in love with, and due to regulations, are forced to look elsewhere. We have already started this search, and have decided to limit it to Oldham County. We've fallen in love with this community and been welcomed with open arms by so many, that we can't imagine starting up our bakery elsewhere. We knew there would be setbacks, and while we didn't expect one so soon, it's not killing our spirit! We can't wait to find just the perfect location here in Oldham County! Thanks for sticking with us!
