Aloha and Mahalo so much for taking the time to learn about our fundraising campaign for Hawaii Cupcake Factory Inc.
We are now on Pinterest:
Who We Are?
Hawaii Cupcake Factory is far from 'just another cupcake store'....It is a Dining Experience for everyone of all ages. Our concept, Hawaii Cupcake Factory, is to incorporate the number one and fastest growing segment in the baking business "cupcakes" with a latin/american fusion cuisine.
Now more than ever this restaurant means a lot to her and her family to bring it to life in "Memory of their dream" and a tribute to her brother. The Opening of Hawaii Cupcake Factory is a bitter sweet moment for our family.The sweet part is that this cupcake bakery/restaurant has been the dream of Chef Day for many years with her brother Dale as a partner. It was suppose to be the restaurant owned and operated by her and Dale as the two Head Chefs; but, unfortunately Dale passed away on Good Friday of year 2013 when he was killed by a taxi driver in New York. Although it will be a bitter sweet accomplishment to bring Hawaii Cupcake Factory to fruition, Chef's heart, soul and entire love is in this restaurant that she will cherish as part of her brother forever. Chef remembers days when Dale and her would be in the kitchen cooking up meals complete with dessert, the laughter of her 4 kids and other family enjoying their food. One of Dale's meals he prepared was the most delectable chicken fried rice made with fresh vegetables and no soy sauce but very aromatic from jasmine rice. This will be a featured special daily at Hawaii Cupcake Factory for everyone to enjoy.
What makes Hawaii Cupcake Factory Different than a Regular Cupcake Store?
Hawaii Cupcake Factory serves up more than just gourmet cupcakes baked fresh daily in a large variety of incomparable flavors. We aim to be a full blown upscale casual dining restaurant where our cuisine will be a mash-up of Latin, Caribbean, Italian and Creole flare. Our attention to detail and flavor infusion will sure be a delight to our diners and keep them coming back to try other menu item as well as our gourmet cupcakes. We plan to continue to push the boundaries in flavor, texture and design of our gourmet cupcakes which will be the highlight of our bakery in the restaurant's Dessert Bar.
Why a Restaurant and not just a Cupcake Store like everyone else?
Although the fascination with gourmet cupcakes have grown rapidly over the past couple of years and is still growing strongly now and years to come, it is time to combine this great little me cake with comfort food under one roof. Chef Day wanted a family restaurant that will showcase her love for baking along side her brother Dale's love and passion for cooking; henceforth, marrying a bakery and restaurant into one happily "married couple". Food is a universal language, it comforts us in good and bad times, creates memories for all. Food is the core connection for everyone regardless of race, culture, religious belief, political views, generation gap; food has always broken the awkwardness of starting conversations. With that said we vision Hawaii Cupcake Factory as mom's table where family and friends gather for all of life's great and not so great moments or to celebrate those milestones in life. A place to gather and talk and laugh and cry tears of joy.
It is given human nature that we love convenience. Therefore having our favorite dessert in the same place we gather for great food makes for "umami" winning combination. Hawaii Cupcake Factory plan on becoming the neighborhood restaurant for locals and tourist to gather after work with friends or family, celebrate special occasion, or enjoy good food and good company just because, in a warm friendly atmosphere to celebrate life present, past and future loved ones. A place where romantic proposal are regular due to convenience to shop for red velvet cupcake to hold that engagement ring for the big night proposal. Having such convenience makes it is easier to pull off the perfect engagement proposal with no one suspecting. Prefer a cupcake tower for the proposal we can provide such with pre-orders. Expect the unexpected to happen at Hawaii Cupcake Factory where no reservations are needed and it is all on a first come, first serve basis. We aspire to be a Dining Experience, not just another Cupcake Store.
Why do we need the money?
Hawaii Cupcake Factory funds will be used to cover the initial hire our staff of 10, including waiters and sous chef. We need your help to furnish the kitchen with all equipment for cooking and baking. We must outfit our bakery for all our in house baking of cupcakes and all breads and buns to be utilized in our restaurant as well. Bread Sticks served at our table will be our very own made in house and so will the buns for our burgers and sandwiches listed on our menu. Funds will also be used to cover the interior design of our customer dining area and front of the house furnishings to give our diners a warm and inviting dining experience.

Risks and challenges
Like many small business start up cash is most difficult to obtain, financial institutions want you to be in business for two years before they grant you a line of credit or a loan by that time most small business either fail and the owners are at the brink of bankruptcy or families destroyed regardless of the blood, sweat and tears they put into the business.
We therefore reach out to our communities of caring passionate givers like yourselves who not only love great eats and desserts but know a good thing when you see it. You also know a good bargain and so with your pledge we will overcome the need for additional conventional financing and see our dream come to life while remaining in the black with cash flow and be debt free in a shorter time than majority of restaurants opened.
We rather be accountable to you our support team than to answer to investors or franchisers demanding we use lower quality ingredients in our food and bake goods. We knead your dough to rise our kickstarter bread and overflow our pot of soup with the ingredients and equipment to chop down our cash flow needs. If we meet our goal we will be able to open our doors, exceeding our goal will give us great cash reserve for unexpected emergencies that can occur when opening or building out a restaurant/bakery.
Thank you we are ready to serve you up great food, fun, passion filled cupcakes served with great heaps of love, dedication and undeniable customer service.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
