About this project
Puhleeeeze DON'T STOP! Even though we got fully funded in under 48 hours, we need to get to Goal #2 so we can add Online Ordering!!
With your help, Angel Food will be downtown Minneapolis' only full-service bakery making pastries, cupcakes, cookies, croissants, cakes and hearty craft breads on site and entirely from scratch.
Perfectly juxtaposed just above Hell's Kitchen (our "sister" company), the bakery idea started as a desperate need for more kitchen space, then quickly evolved into a completely separate project: a beautiful, full service bakery so unusual and enticing, you'll want to show it off to friends and Twin Cities visitors.
Right in front of you just inches away, we'll be icing your cupcakes, putting the finishing touch on swoon-worthy donuts, rolling the fondant for birthday cakes, or pulling perfectly-crusted breads out of the magnificent glass-door oven. Got a bit of time? Snag a coveted counter stool and relish a great cup of Peace coffee while watching our bakers work their magic kneading dough or decorating cookies right before your eyes.
Open 7 days a week, downtowners can pick up a damn good cup of Peace Coffee (we'll even be making our own syrups!), grab goodies for the office, order custom birthday cakes, snag hot-out-of- the-oven baguettes for dinner, or take home our legendary quarter-pound caramel rolls.
No pre-mixes, powders, food chemicals or long lists of questionable additives here...instead, locally-sourced organic eggs and wholesome ingredients rule our kitchen as much as possible.
The minute we're fully on our feet, Angel Food will also offer custom wedding cakes as well as unique gift boxes and delivery for downtown meetings & celebrations. Further down the road, evening classes will be offered for do-it-yourselfers as well as unique bridal showers or children's birthdays.
Please support Angel Food....a one-of-a-kind, locally owned jewel in the heart of Minneapolis, just around the corner from Nicollet Mall. While the founders have personally invested all of their funds for this project, we need your help to put us over the top and finally open the gates of heaven.
NOW THAT WE MET OUR FIRST GOAL OF $7,046, we can purchase the mega baking oven now on loan.
BUT DON'T STOP PLEDGING! IF WE CAN REACH $14,525, we can purchase Bakery Online Ordering Software so you can peruse our offerings and order online for easy pop in, pop out pickups (we'll even have a nifty 15-minute parking meter right out front under the Hell's Kitchen sidewalk awning!
IF WE MANAGE TO TOP $19,369, we can't even begin to tell you how excited we'd be, because we could then expand our delivery service to a much wider audience (almost immediately, we'll deliver to downtown churches, businesses, schools, and more, but this would push our delivery area much wider.
AND IF ANGELS SEND US EVEN MORE PLEDGES, we can begin to kick our fun baking classes and parties into action, so think ahead for birthdays, bridal parties, team-building events, Barrista Workshops and maybe even our very own Cupcake Contests. We know we're dreaming, but we'd also like to start paying down our startup debts, so be an angel and help KickStart Angel Food Bakery & Coffee Bar...you'll be rewarded with manna from heaven, good karma for life, and an irresistible array of goodies and sweets from our talented crew.
IMPT: You CAN choose more than one reward level, but since Kickstarter's website only lets you select one, here’s a simple way to get around that:
Add the total amount for the various rewards you want (remember to include shipping), then select ANY level and enter that amount as your pledge). For example, if you want the $25 Pretzel Party Pak AND the $30 Caramel Roll 6-Pak, just pledge $55 in ANY category. Don't worry about anything else...once we're funded, we'll contact you for a detailed breakdown of exactly what you want.
