Confetti Sweets - Opening a New Storefront
Confetti Sweets started in Kathy Leskow's home, baking cookies for sale at farmers' markets in Edmonton, Sherwood Park and St. Albert. An increasing customer base made it possible to open a storefront bakery in Sherwood Park in 2014, and a satellite location in Terwillegar in 2015. Now, thanks to an exciting opportunity on Edmonton's West End, we have the chance to open a third location before Christmas, which means less driving and more cookies for our totally awesome customers.
But opening a new bakery isn't cheap: we're going to do all the baking in-house on the West End, so we need to buy all new mixers, ovens, bowls, spoons, freezers, and whisks. Plus we need to hire more staff. And, do you know how much pink paint we'll need to make the space our own?
Because we're planning to be open before the end of the year, we need to quickly fund supplies, machinery, staff and renovations. But we're not just asking for money—we're offering some amazing opportunities to have cookies for a year, cookies with your face or logo on them, a bottle of our secret ingredient, a cookie named after you, and many more.
We've got such loyal and caring customers that we thought we'd reach out to them to help us raise $20,000 and boost our expansion plans. And, who knows? If this goes really well, maybe there's an opportunity to expand further...hint hint St. Albert or North Edmonton.
Our Cookies are totally awesome.
What makes them totally awesome? We use only the best ingredients, and we don’t skimp.
We think real butter tastes best—that’s why we use only butter in our cookies, not margarine, and not shortening. It’s what sets us apart from everyone else.
Our vanilla, our chocolate, our coconut, our sugar: all real, and all the best we can find. We would never, ever, ever use an inferior ingredient to save money—when we say we make Totally Awesome Cookies, we mean totally. Every part of our cookies is awesome.
IF YOU CAN IMAGINE IT, WE CAN BAKE IT
All of our cookies are special, but if you’re looking for something extra special, consider custom cookies. Whether you want your organization’s colours as sprinkles in our sugar cookies, or you want to take advantage of our icing printer to put your logo, your face, or anything you like onto a cookie, we’ve got you covered.
Some of you might be wondering, “Where have I heard of Confetti Sweets before?”
It’s the Oscars. Thank you, thank you.
We don’t want to brag (much) but it’s true: in 2015 and 2016, Confetti Sweets was lucky enough to serve our cookies at a pre-Oscar party for nominees, press, and Hollywood. We served cookies to the likes of Jamie Foxx, Joan Collins and Luis Guzman, among others.
People always ask, so we’ll tell you: we brought our two bestsellers, Chocolate Chunk and Coconut.
