Niles Pie Company Kickstarter campaign
Submitted By Carolyn Berke
Niles Pie Company is getting ready to move into our new home early in 2013. We've been at this pie baking biz for just over two years now, and in order to grow, we have to have our own kitchen space. We want to be more involved in the community by having a space to host classes, events, and even a few other aspiring food businesses, and start working with more interns and schools. And to branch out into more farmer's markets and wholesale accounts, we really need to be able to take deliveries and order in bulk. Now we're ready to make the leap! And we need you!
We've launched a Kickstarter campaign to finance the purchase of equipment for our new kitchen. Kickstarter is a crowd-funding platform that is used to raise funds for all sorts of projects. It's a way for community members who are excited about a project to help out in whatever way they can, without having to be a big investor. Kickstarter projects have rewards, and successful projects have rewards that really give their investors some value. To thank you for investing in Niles Pie we have everything from stickers, mugs, and T-shirts to Pie Club memberships and classes. There are rewards you won't be able to get any other way. All contributions are really appreciated. Kickstarter is the perfect vehicle for Niles Pie to use to fund our kitchen, because we would not have gotten this far without the enormous support of the people, near and far, who have helped make this happen. And when we're settled in the new space, we are gonna have one heck of a party!
The campaign amount is $25,000, and we need to hit the goal in order to receive any of the monies - it's an "all-or-nothing" campaign, and we have until Friday, November 16 to meet the goal. This amount is the minimum we can do in order to get the equipment we need and leave enough to pay for permits and such. Please give what you can, then send it out to everyone you know, through e-mail, Facebook, Twitter, Carrier Pigeon. Progress updates, reward updates, news and pictures will be added to the campaign as we go along. So send it in, send it out, stay tuned, and sharpen your forks! There's work to be done and pie to eat!
