About

My Company - Pat's Delectable Cookies

My Goals  

I want to be able to grow my company into the wholesale market and sell my products to the local markets and food co-ops. I also would like to be able to sell my dog treats to pet owners as well as in the small family owned pet stores. I'm finding that with my retail customers growing, I don't have the time, proper baking space, equipment and finances to fulfil my dream, so this is where the funding comes in.

My Menu

Belgian Dark Chocolate Truffles- I also love infusing these with different ingredients.  Brandy, Cinnamon/Chili, Irish Cream, Fresh Strawberry puree, Fresh Colorado Peach puree and Fresh Rosehips.

Calming Chamomile Butter- Made with Fresh Chamomile Flowers.  They go great with a nice cup of tea after a stressful day at work.

 Where the funding will go

First and foremost, I need to hire an assistant so that I can concentrate on continuing my baking and supplying my customers with their treats, as well as going out and marketing my products to markets and co-ops.

Car maintenience - I drive a 91 Toyota that is in need of some minor repairs and I spend a lot of time making deliveries to my customers, 

Acquiring all the necessary business licenses, insurance and tax license to be able to get into the wholesale business.

Renting a commercial kitchen and having it inspected.

Updating my baking equipment, I'm still using a hand held mixer, would love to have a commercial mixer with a stand.

Home Office expenses-  as well as updating office equipment (need a new printer/scanner for printing labels).

Replenishing ingredients and marketing supplies.

For my doggie cookies

Sending my cookies to an accredited lab to be analyzed.

Acquiring the proper license from the Agricultural Dept. to sell my dog treats.  

Replenishing ingredients and marketing supplies.

I know that with proper funding, I can accomplish my dream and continue making people and dogs happy at the same time.  

Thank you all and God Bless You. ( And please remember it's all or nothing at all.  If I don't reach my 16K goal, I don't get a cent).

My Rewards

I spent some time thinking about my rewards other than the standard tote bags, t-shirts, and company stickers.  What I came up with was of course my Cookies,Truffles and Dog Cookies (Backers choice of styles), and a coffee cup with my logo (since coffee or tea goes so well with cookies).

Acknowledgement Of Thankfulness

I want to thank my close circle of friends and all of my wonderful customers.  Many of whom  have willingly been my test tasters whenever I've come up with a new recipe and always given me their honest feedback. Their loyalty, friendship, support and encouragement to follow my dream means more to me than anything else.  I feel truly Blessed to have them in my life.

Risks and challenges

Starting any business is a risk, and yes there are always going to be unexpected situations that occur. I've been baking for over 40 years, and I already have an established client base which keeps on growing because I have the willingness to take the challenge of learning new things and doing the footwork that goes along with it.

As long as I continue to make great quality cookies that people love to eat, smile when they take that first bite, and appreciate the love that goes into my products, I feel I will be a success.
