About

Kai's Kookies growth
Kai's Kookies growth

Kai's Kookies is growing!  Growth is a good thing and it creates challenges, challenges that create new ways of doing things.  I started out in my parent's kitchen and wow I have really outgrown what we have at home.  I have had orders so large that it required me to go into a commercial kitchen.  The commercial kitchen would be great if I could go in there and bake.  This led me to think of what I could do to get back in the kitchen with my dad.  I am currently going out with my parents looking at rental spaces that we can convert into a place for me to grow my business.  I really don't need a big space, but I do need some commercial equipment.

Bigger orders require commercial equipment
Bigger orders require commercial equipment

Retail space 500-850 Sqft. Our goal is to go into a commercial space, it could be retail friendly or in a warehouse, setting set up for production and delivery of Kai’s Kookies. This space will be able to produce our orders for customers, events, pop-ups.

 The layout would include a stove, a commercial oven, a commercial freezer, a commercial freezer, prep tables, a commercial mixer, racks and other equipment listed below: 

Business Needs list

 Equipment Price 

  • Commercial Oven $4000 
  • Commercial Freezer $2300 
  • Commercial Fridge $2400 
  • Commercial Mixer $2600 
  • Prep Tables $600 
  • Printer $600 
  • Label Printer $200 
  • Package Sealer $700 
  • Lease and Location Development (Which includes the buildout, electrical, plumbing etc) $21000 

With your help, I can take Kai's Kookies to new heights, I can continue to grow and reach more people.  With your help, I can continue to spread sweetness to my customers, and I can continue to support the community through charitable giving.  Business and outreach go hand and hand, wherever you do business should be a place where you help out those in need!  Big or small together we can do it all!

Risks and challenges

Everything in life has risk and challenges. One of our challenges is that Kai's Kookies is growing rapidly which, is a good thing but just like everything else in life growth brings about a change. Kai's Kookies started as a home-based bakery operating under the Texas Cottage Law. Within the past few months due to supply and demand, we have had to change our operating practices and move into a rented commercial space that does not allow children into the facility. This creates a very disappointing scenario for Makai. It limits her hands on ability in the kitchen and it alters the quality time spent with her dad. Therefore, we decided to set the crowdfunding campaign goal at $35,000 which will allow for us you lease a space and create a family-friendly commercial space where Makai can get back into the kitchen will her dad. The risk of her not meeting her goal is always possible but we have instilled in her the value of hard work. If she does not meet this goal we will continue to support by doing pop-ups, event, and festivals as a family.
Makai is currently working on a monthly subscription box "Kai's Sweet Box." Customers will receive our cookies and treats on a monthly basis. The projected time frame for Kai's Sweet Box is June 2018.
