What is James And The Giant Cupcake?
Everyday we bake, design and deliver the best cupcakes & cakes throughout Oakland and the San Francisco Bay Area. We're not only bakers, we're artists and we love what we do. The word is out, we have become Oakland's favorite cupcakes and we're busier than ever! We have built a dedicated community here at James and the Giant Cupcake, and we hope to share our cupcakes and cakes with as many people as possible. This is why we are going to be opening our second location in April.
We have signed the lease and completed the plans. We have talked to contractors and city leaders. Now we turn to you, our community, to help us complete this project. We are launching a Kickstarter campaign because we think it will be a great way to raise the additional funding for our new shop, as well an exciting way of offering our backers a great selection of cupcake-based rewards when we open.
We have set up some amazing rewards to give back as a sincere thank you. From a cupcake and customized James And The Giant Cupcake tote bag to a catered party on us, and everything in between, we want this to be fun for everyone involved!
Risks and challenges
Our biggest challenge is making sure we have the funding for operational costs, equipment and staffing. Also keeping up with the demand will be a challenge, but we know we can do it! We're confident that with the funding through Kickstarter we can easily overcome these challenges.
The biggest risk is that if we do not reach our funding goal, we will not be able to open by our projected date.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
