About this project
Thank you for watching my video and I hope you will try some of the sweet rewards!
The Better Bit of Butter -Relocation project -is an effort to move my home-based cookie company to a new baking facility and store front. I created this company 6 years ago in my home kitchen but I am now ready to move out! My business has out grown my home with customers throughout the mid-west and east coast clamoring for the best cookies around! I need to expand my space and production FAST! With the new space, I will not only be able to make more cookies but can become a more visible presence in my community.
I have built Better Bit of Butter's reputation on quality ingredients and unique designs. Not only is each cookie an original design but is made from scratch with the finest ingredients. I have hand selected the butter for its flavor, I use locally farmed eggs and there are never any trans fats or preservatives in BBoB cookies!
Along with my original line of hand-decorated cookies, I have introduced a second line focused on unique flavor combinations such as Apricot / Cashew with Lime glaze, Coconut / Cranberry with Lemon glaze & Dark Chocolate / Cranberry with Sea salt......yummy right! These are just a few of the delicious combinations I offer and there are several more in the works.
After learning about Kickstarter 6 months ago, I thought it would be the perfect forum to raise the funds needed to develop my brand to its full potential. People who know and love my product as well as new customers are able to donate to the cause and receive some sweet rewards!
I have set my goal at $9,800 this will allow me to purchase a larger mixer, a commercial oven, a refrigerator, work tables, pans and other small tools. To reach this goal would be much appreciated and amazing!! If I am able to go over that goal to $12,000 I will be able to do a few extras such as replace the front awning, install a counter and purchase custom boxes and labels. Every little bit helps so I am offering rewards for a $5 dollar donation all the way up to $1000. If the initial goal is not met all donations go back to the donors. So if donating is not something you can do at this time, please help spread the word with Tweeter, FaceBook, Linkedin or Pinterest
The store front is under construction and is expected to be done in a months time. The excitement is building and the time is short, so please help BBoB move forward and build a strong market presence!
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about my company!
