About this project

I 'm starting up a wholesale food business called artsnjest edibles. My mission is to produce, sell and share great tasting, organic food, locally-sourced whenever possible. My initial product lines will consist of artisan, small-batch baked goods – coffee cakes, cupcakes, muffins, scones, and quick sweet breads – as well as original vegetarian soups.

At this point I have all the business licensing and requirements in place. I’ve already scouted for and identified a commercial kitchen available for sub-lease. I’ve started purchasing some kitchen equipment. And I have an initial commitment from three area coffee shops to sell my food, and countless people who have tasted my food and are ready to buy it. Now I just want to get into the kitchen and bake my heart out, and to do that I'd love your support.

The $7,500 I’m seeking will get me into the kitchen and get me started. I’ll be able to commit to and secure the kitchen. I’ll be able to purchase more of my kitchen equipment and supplies. I’ll be able to stock my pantry. But most importantly I’ll be able to get my food out there.

My goal for artsnjest edibles is to be profitable, but also sustainable – economically, environmentally, and socially. I want to grow artsnjest edibles while paying living, sustainable wages. I want to be sensitive and respectful of the environment. And I will give back to the community as it supports me.

Thank you for your time and interest in reading my request. And thanks for supporting me.
