Who are you?
The Cape Cod Cookie Company is a small mom & pop home based cookie bakery located on Cape Cod. We've been at it for over five years and we have a real passion for making cookies and smiles!
What is your vision?
What I picture when I close my eyes is a bustling little mom & pop with an old fashioned Cape feel. Customers come in to get a box of cookies or a cookie cake for dinner for their guests coming in from out of town. A couple comes in after supper on Main Street to have dessert and coffee. They order a warm chocolate chip cookie fresh out of the oven topped with vanilla bean ice cream to share. Kids in line on a hot summer night to get a cookie ice cream sandwich. The brides mother picking up her individually wrapped cookies for favors. A businessman grabbing a cup of coffee and a breakfast cookie (Maple bacon? Pumpkin muffin top cookie? Banana bread cookie?) and using the free WIFI before work. Sitting with friends in comfortable seating, eating some treats and sharing a laugh. That's what I envision. That is what I want for the Cape.
Where do you sell your cookies now?
Why do you need help?
We're a small company and taking that next step requires a good amount of capital. Once we've received funding we'll sign a lease on Main Street in Hyannis (the heart of Cape Cod). The additional funds will be used for equipment, display cases, seating, and operational costs. We have every intention on continuing to be at our local markets, we love it and our customers so dearly. But this space will allow us to have a full variety of cookies for you to come and choose from. We'll also be able to ship a wider variety of goodies to a wider variety of locations and maybe even get into a store near you!
What is Indiegogo?
Indiegogo and Kickstarter and sites like it are what are known as "crowdfunding" websites. This is a place where people, like yourself, can get together and donate any amount they please. The fun part about Indiegogo is that no matter the amount you donate, you'll receive a thank you prize!
This jump needs to happen quickly. Once the holidays are over we need to start preparing a café in time for the busy foot traffic on Main Street that begins around April. We also want to be sure to be open for at least one or two months to get our footing before the crowds come! This project is live for another 28 days only!
I can't donate. Is there any other way I can help?
Yes! We appreciate your consideration and know that not everyone has enough spare cash to donate to our fund. Please, in lieu of this, share our links with your friends & family on Faecbook, Twitter or wherever you are! Links below. THANK YOU!
