We launched RoRo's Baking Company in April of 2011 and for the last 21 months we have been on the ride of our lives! To give you a little background ... my grandmother, "RoRo," began selling her delicious Cinnamon Rolls and crescent-style Dinner Rolls from her house about 12 years ago. They quickly became a tradition in my family, especially on Christmas mornings! She started out small, first giving them as gifts to friends and family, then selling by special order to those same friends and family members. Over the years, the demand grew. The word about RoRo's rolls spread and soon she was selling them at church bake sales, fundraisers, and donating them to mission trips. She even made 225 mini-pans to serve as favors at our July 2010 wedding!
A few months after our wedding, I had an idea. I wanted to take my grandmothers small home baking business and create a real company. With the help of my husband Lauren, and the blessing of my grandmother, the three of us created RoRo's Baking Company.
What We Are About...
RoRo's Baking Company is based in Dallas, TX. Just like RoRo has done for years, we make our All Natural Cinnamon Rolls & crescent style Dinner Rolls from scratch and from a family recipe. We sell wholesale to specialty grocery stores and small gourmet shops. We also sell online and ship orders to customers throughout the United States. All of our products are handmade, fully baked, and sold frozen. All you have to do is simply heat them up and serve. Our mission is to bring back those memories of Grandma's hot yummy rolls to your busy life. Take a minute, enjoy the sweet things in life, and bring a little bit of our RoRo into your kitchen!
How You Can Help Our Growth...
Think back to the last time you sat in at your kitchen table and devoured a warm, gooey, homemade cinnamon roll. Not the kind you pop out of a cardboard can, but an honest to goodness, made from scratch, cinnamon roll. Or maybe you remember the pan of delicious buttery yeast rolls sitting on top of the oven. We’re guessing that like us, those memories probably center around family gatherings at your grandmother’s house. We believe that the taste of those rolls is a sweet memory you'd like to have more often. Well, we need your help to raise the dough and grow this family-owned local business into a nationwide “must have these rolls in my house” phenomenon!
For the last 18 months, we have been baking out of a shared-use caterer's kitchen. It was great at first because there was no overhead cost - we only paid for the hours we used - and we had the flexibility to stop at any point. However, as we grow, this option just doesn't make sense any more. We are unable to produce the volume we need to in order to grow, and we are running out of places to store our inventory.
The exciting news is that we have found a space to lease, have the site plans drawn, and are ready to expand! The money we raise on Kickstarter will go directly to the cost of equipment, permits, and the complete build-out of the warehouse to turn it into a commercial baking facility. It is a huge undertaking, but we know that with your support, we can make it happen!
We want you to be part of helping us fulfill our vision of delivering our "Scrump-a-licious" rolls to every grocery store in the United States! We promise to continue adding to our team of bakers, administrators, and fulfillment specialists so that we can rise to that level. For us, it’s about family and friends. We wouldn’t be where we are now without them. And we won’t get where we’re headed without new friends like you who are willing to support us and be part of our team. So, join us! We would be honored for you to be a part of this journey!

Risks and challenges
We have been baking and selling wholesale to stores for the last 18 months. Although we are still a young company, we were able to work out most of the kinks during this time. We are now able to sustain and deliver larger orders and meet the growing production demands. We have spent several weeks developing realistic rewards to give you guys for offering your funding support. It is vital that these rewards are delivered on time, and you have our word that we will make it happen.
As far as the actual build out of the warehouse ... we know that we will face some obstacles, however, we have lined up a great team of contractors to complete this project. Finding the site for our facility and getting the plans drawn and approved by the city has been a great first start to this process. We will keep you all updated throughout our project. Please follow along through Kickstarter and our Facebook page so you can enjoy the process with us! This will be a great way to show you how your funds are being used for something exciting!
We will also be sharing photos and video of your rolls being packaged and sent to our troops overseas. We want you to see how your contribution will have an even greater impact beyond this project!
