OUR WAISTLINE IS EXPANDING!

We're a family owned ice cream parlor that specializes in Gluten free - Vegan - Organic desserts and treats. We even make our own Gluten free and Vegan waffle cones! After introducing our own brownies to the mix we were challenged by one of our loyal customers to branch out and make cakes, cupcakes and cookies. We didn't really know what to expect but challenge accepted we rolled up our sleeves, grabbed a mixing bowl and began what we thought would be a one time deal.......The rest they say is history!

Word spread quicker than you can you can top your ice cream with our signature coconut whip! We felt like an underground supplier for the vegan and gluten free world.....Only it wasn't just our customers with food sensitivities or requirements asking for our desserts! Customers would arrive giving us that wink, nod and knowing look asking for one of our baked confections! So what else could we do?....... 
  

You ate we listened! We want to maintain our customers satisfaction and keep up with the demand for our scrumptious confections. We're currently mixing up and concocting our new location so we can house all these tantalizing treats under one roof!

To bring our secretly scrumptious sweets out from what feels like the days of probation and into the light of day where they deserve to be will take a lot of love, faith and hard work. Once again challenge accepted, we're rolling up our sleeves and taking it on head first to show our loyalty to our customers. We just need help getting there! 

THE PROJECT

To accommodate our ever expanding waistline we need bigger, better and more practical equipment! We're relocating to a larger space that can house all our products, equipment and most importantly our customers! Although we can take some of our existing equipment with us it just isn't enough. We need a larger oven, cooling racks, a floor mixer ... our shopping list is endless!

All money raised from the project will go towards the purchase of the necessary equipment to get our new location up and running. $23.820.00 is the minimum goal, but approximately $148,000.00 is needed.

You can contribute a few dollars (because every cent really does count), or, if you really want to leave your mark, select a donation level and we'll reward you with not only our sincere gratitude but some of our tantalizing treats! Really, it's that simple. So come on! Help make our future a whole lot better in the process. 

THE IMPACT 

It's just a moment in time "“ the first time a child bites into a delicious treat. But not every child has had their moment in time. 

There are several children and adults that have food sensitivites and dietary requirements that prevent them from walking into their local bakery or ice cream parlor ordering up a slice or scoop of their desired delight and sitting back to enjoy. Sure, you can find a small slice of sweetened snacks at your local grocery store but what about the experience? Doesn't everyone deserve to have the joy of going out for a scoop of their favorite frozen dessert or swinging by to sip a coffee and satisfy that sweet tooth with a cupcake? 

By supporting a la mode you're helping us to become that experience for so many that haven't had the ease of hopping in the car on a sunny afternoon to take the kids out for a cool confection. You're also supporting a small business and the local community. Once we are up and running it means we'll be creating more jobs in the local economy. We're paying it forward in so many ways!

Words can not describe how appreciative and humbled I am by our most recent donor. They wish to remain anonymous but they were one of the first customers we had and stood out as the most loyal and supportive. A huge "thank you" for all of their continued support both through their patronage but more importantly through their words and actions.
