Clara Cookie Bakery Move

$12,265 of $1,000 goal

Raised by 115 people in 44 months
It's been 6 Months since we launched Clara Cookies! We've sold over 7,000  protein cookies in our 30 locations- stores, coffee shops, churches, and corporate cafeterias. I'd say that's a success!!! Eight weeks ago, I was given 30 days to find a new bakery. Four weeks later, Praise God, we started baking at Camp Roger- a WONDERFUL new commercial kitchen here in Rockford! They are excited to be partnering with us, and we love the new kitchen. BUT, the move cost us $1,000.  When we added up cost of new equipment, ingredients for test baking batches in the new ovens that we couldn't sell, kitchen rental time to test bake, updates to our website and cookie labels, applying for a new license and water/well testing,  etc, etc it all added up to just over $1,000!!!  I'm looking for 100 people who will donate $10 or 50 people who will donate $20. Then we can break even and push forward into the new year! Will you help Clara Cookies?

I have a 7 Week Clara Cookie Sales Update!! So far we've given away about 2,000 cookies for marketing promo- "try it and you'll buy it". I think it's working! We've sold 2,018 cookies. We now have 16 stores in the West Michigan area who have bought 1,127 cookies. I've sold 276 cookies online to customers in Michigan, South Carolina, Utah, Texas, North Carolina, and Colorado. We've had outside orders (friends, farmer's market, church) of 615 cookies. I think this is a great start for less than 2 months!!

Clara Cookies is up and running!!! We have 13 stores currently carrying our cookies and online orders are going all over the country. Check out our website at www.claracookies.com. I've been sending free cookies to all of our donors, and I think I'm getting down the the bottom of the list . If you donated on our gofundme and haven't received cookies yet, email me your address at rebecca@claracookies.com . So far the top selling cookie is the peanut butter chocolate chip. : )

Wow, the cookies are really selling!!! So fast, that I don't have a lot of extras yet to send to you. I'm trying to send each of our donors one cookie of each flavor. So, if you haven't received yours yet, hang in there! I'm trying to do about 10 of you each week. : ) If I don't know your address, please email it to me at rebecca@claracookies.com. We have 9 stores now carrying our cookies and online orders coming in! Thank you for your support! Rebecca, "ClaraBelle" ( Tom's new nickname for me, his southern belle cookie lady )
