Getting Ready for Kickstarter...
It's been tough keeping this project a secret and now it's official! For the last few months, we have been working tirelessly on our Kickstarter campaign. With borrowed time and extra hands from our generous and incredibly kind friends and family, we are launching our campaign at the end of this month!
We started out by cooking our small batch caramels in a 250 sq ft kitchen at home. We thought that would be enough while we were getting started but from day one, we were barely making enough caramels for our one day at the City Market each week.
We both retired from our full time day jobs so we could focus on what truly makes our hearts flutter--making caramels of course! But even with the new found time, it was difficult to keep up with demand as love for delicious caramels spread throughout Alberta.
To expand into more markets and shows, and to ship online, we need to make production more efficient through specialized candy cooking equipment and a larger commercial kitchen space where we can make, store and package our caramels. Additionally, we will need to hire more candy enthusiasts to help make more too!
We have invested a significant portion of our own money to our business and have reinvested all profits back into the business to help it grow, but that is not enough. We hope to raise more money to help achieve our next goals and make more caramels for Edmonton, Canada, and beyond!
Our campaign will go live on Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 07:30 MST and runs for 30 days.
