 Simply Simon's Cheesecakes is on a mission to become the next great dessert food brand that America will come to know and love.  With our roots based in Chicago, we plan on starting with a small store front to showcase to the world that 42 years of love, passion and drive can truly make the difference between an average store-bought cheesecake and a Simply Simon’s Cheesecake.  Once we have made our presence in Chicago, we will begin the process of expanding across the country, to bring the joy of a hand-made, high-quality, home-made, Simply Simon’s Cheesecake’s to everyone in America.

We are here asking you for your support in our goal to become the next great food brand. As in most cases, we need working capital to get off the ground.  The capital we are searching for will give Simply Simon’s the ability to get us operational, LLC, insurance, rent, baking equipment, packaging, nutritional facts, labeling and to help us become a brand that you will know and love.

   Once our store front bakery is open, with Simply Simon’s team in place, it’s time to get busy.  The first order of business is getting our retail and wholesale clients.  Our store front along with social media and word of mouth will take care of our retail side.  Our wholesale side will be done by pounding the pavement, getting in front of our future clients, introducing us, our product, the values we share and how Simply Simon's can eventually help their business grow.

Risks and challenges

We will start small and growing to become a reliable, steady brand that with which people will associate a quality product we do. The biggest obstacle is to get operations on the scale we need to be successful. We need the ability to run promotions, advertising, producing sample cheesecakes to establish our wholesale base and operating the small storefront for our retail guest. The plan is to reach our break-even point within 8 to 10 months to support our monthly business expenses. Another potential obstacle will be augmenting the labor force upon necessity, the point when we need to grow and add additional employees, is when we need to have the funds to support our new team members. Once we reach beyond our break-even month expenses, we will be in great shape! Without the worries of supporting monthly expenses, we will then concentrate on achieving our goal of becoming the next great food brand that the world will become to know and love, Simply Simon’s Cheesecakes “simply the best cheesecake you’ve ever eaten”
