Cajun Crate | Louisiana Monthly Subscription Box

$21,014

Cajun Crate is a monthly subscription box that delivers specially curated boxes filled with Louisiana made items! Each month a box will contain Cajun products ranging from coffee to beignet mix, jambalaya to gumbo roux, étouffée sauce to bbq sauce, and so much more! 

We are teaming up with chefs and tastemakers from Louisiana to find the best products from Louisiana that we can deliver to you! In your Cajun Crate you will find a guide to what's inside your Cajun Crate. Find out where your product was made and how you can create cajun creates at home with our step by step recipe guides. 

We will be going behind the scenes with our awesome Cajun vendors to show you how and where your products were made, introduce you to the creator, and explore their little piece of Louisiana culture.

This is not an ordinary subscription box. This is a Cajun subscription box! We do things a little different in Louisiana and we want to share that with you!  Each Parish has a different style and our subscribers can taste it all. 

 

 The idea behind Cajun Crate was born out a constant need to send loved ones Cajun fixings and staples. Any one from Louisiana but now living out side of Louisiana knows it is hard to find good cajun products in grocery stores. We were constantly bringing coffee, soda, gumbo roux, jambalaya, and hot sauce to family and friends in other states whenever we visited. We started make "cajun care packages" for family that contained all the cajun staples. It was always like watching a kid on Christmas morning open up the package and inspect all the goods.  After talking to friends, this seemed as though everyone has to do this for loved ones living out of state.

Not to mention all the local goods we were also bringing to friends from Lafayette to New Orleans or Shreveport. We started discovering that even though something was made in Louisiana you might not be able to find it in all parts of the state. 

This is a problem that needed to be solved! And Cajun Crate was born! We have been going to farmers markets and local grocers ever since to find brands big and small, unique and small batch, from Caddo Parish to Jefferson parish. 

Our goal is to promote local. Louisiana owned. This way the small and large brands can gain more exposure, hire people, buy more from local farmers, and create new products. We are locals that love helping locals.  Each box of Cajun Crate will help support at least 7 Louisiana owned businesses.

 

We don't want to give away the surprise! But Cajun Crate will deliver a box filled with 5-7 Cajun products, a guide to what's inside and recipes. All items are food and drink related and will be non perishable. This is culture in a crate! 

Check out the brands that we are working with already! We are adding more to the Cajun Crate family everyday!

 

 

  

 

 

               

We have many rewards listed. We have early birds of each subscription plan of Cajun Crate. When you pledge $10 or Pre-Order any Cajun Crate subscription we will donate one cooked meal to the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank! We have other #Giveback prizes as well in the rewards section.

Risks and challenges

We are already curating items for our first boxes and signing on new vendors. We are fine tuning the website to make sure the subscription experience is user friendly manageable. We are also lining up our packaging and shipping logistics. We plan on having any issues ironed out plenty of time before the first shipment.
