More Info

Just recently I was offered the opportunity to accept a grant by the Portage Park Chamber of Commerce to occupy a retail space. This grant will cover my rent and utilities for the next 11 months on top of marketing costs. 

However, it is my responsibility to fund the following:

  • Facility improvements to comply with the City of Chicago
  • Tables and furniture
  • Front of the House and Back of the House Equipment
  • Signage
  • Technology
  • Inventory
  • Rent for Shared Kitchen Space 

This space does not have a kitchen area so I will have to prepare and package all baked goods in a certified shared kitchen space. Once, I've spent a year here, I will decide on building a kitchen or continue as we are. For now, it is in our best interest to proceed with the space as is.

Please see below the suggested levels of giving. When you give at the following levels you will receive: 

  • Cupcake Level: A free box of a dozen cookies of your choice.
  • Peach Cobbler Cheesecake Level: One free dessert between now and December 2024 of your choice and an invitation to the soft launch.
  • Banana Pudding Level: One free dessert between now and December of your choice, an invitation to the soft launch, and and 15% in store or online between now and December of 2024.
