About this project

Cheese Bites are Great with Anything!

Hello Kickstarter! At Chechil, we are passionate about creating new ways to enjoy cheese. Last year on Kickstarter, we produced and brought Chechil Beer Snack to the US market. Chechil is a smoked, braided, string-cheese snack that pairs amazing with beer.

Now, we wanted to create a snack that not only pairs great with beer, but virtually anything and as a Grab N' Go Snack.

Founders Sergy Yurkin and Konstantin Savelyev

What are Cheese Bites?

Cheese Bites are lightly smoked, bite-sized pieces of Artisan cheese that are great with anything. They have a chewy texture and a pinch of salt. We only use 100% all natural ingredients with no preservatives. The shelf life of Cheese Bites are 3 months. Our snack should be refrigerated before and after opening for ultimate freshness. It will come in an 8 oz package which is 98 bites on average.

Cheese Bites were designed to be as a convenient Grab N' Go Snack, but the possibilities are endless. You can throw them in soups and salads, pair them with your beer and wine, or have them at your next gathering. Kids love our bites as well!

We Take Food Safety Seriously

At Chechil, food safety is our #1 priority. Our facility is SQF Certified, HACCP approved, and USDA Inspected.

The Plan

Our plan is to start mass producing Cheese Bites and make them available in supermarkets across the nation. We have established solid relationships with food distributors that are bringing our products to mainstream and ethnic markets.

How Will the Funds be Used?

In order for us to achieve our goal, we need to cover the following costs:

  • First Production Run
  • Extra Equipment and Custom Tooling
  • Development of Packaging to Preserve Freshness and Shelf Life

We live in a fast-paced world where everything is on-the-go. Developing a package that is convenient, preserves freshness, and attractive is a necessity. This is why Cheese Bites will be the freshest and healthiest alternative for your everyday snacking and pairing.

Let's Make it Happen

Once we get funding from backers like you, we can start producing and shipping our snack for everyone to enjoy. We brought Chechil to the US, now let's get Cheese Bites in supermarkets across the US and to a store near you!

You will love our Cheese Bites!

Sincerely,

Risks and challenges

This being our second project, we already have production in place and ready to start making Cheese Bites. We have successfully fulfilled our first Kickstarter and have been growing our business for the past year.

Packaging development can be time consuming, but we are working every day to make the perfect and convenient package for our Cheese Bites. We are confident that the packaging will be ready by the estimated delivery date.
