Dear fans and supporters,
Goldilocks Goodies is headed to NYC this weekend to participate in the Food + Enterprise Conference and is a finalist in a pitch competition this Sunday, March 1, as a sustainable food maker. A whole-hearted THANK YOU to y’all for getting me to this point. My commitment to providing wholesome, quality baked goods from local ingredients has never wavered, and my hope in 2015 is to reach a wider regional customer base.
In addition to the pitch, the hosts are giving us the opportunity to fundraise on Barnraiser, a new platform for food and agriculture projects. I’m excited to reach a national audience, and will be promoting free shipping around the country for cookie order placed through Barnraiser. (The link goes live Friday, February 27).
Again, thank you for your continued support and love of Goldilocks Goodies!
I’ve made a big decision to attend this summer’s Fancy Food Show in New York City. This annual expo showcases unique and innovative food products, and champions artisanal food companies. I’d love to share my cookies with the industry on a national platform, and turn my company into a nationwide brand.
The cost of the show is very pricey; they can demand a high price knowing that key industry contacts will be made. If I wait for my own profits to pay for it, it will take me another year or more to save. And the food industry, like most others, is very time-sensitive. I don’t want to wait until there is a similar (sub-par!) product on the market.
To that end, I’ve started a Kickstarter campaign to fund the booth rental and costs of attending the show this summer. If you also believe there is a national audience ready and hungry for a treat as special and satisfying as my cookies, I would really appreciate your donation to make it possible this year. Here is the link to my campaign video and donation page.
I’m really excited about the difference this will make in the growth of Goldilocks Goodies and know that your support and appreciation has gotten me as far as I have today. Thank you for being a fan.
