Mandy Harper began with the idea of Wholesome Bakery back in 2008 in her very own kitchen. Mandy loved treats, but she was picky: she wanted goodies free of dairy, soy, eggs, wheat, and refined sugars; and they couldn't taste like dust. This was no easy task, but Mandy was determined: if no one else was making yummy cookies and treats up to her standards, she would do it herself! Thus, Wholesome Bakery was born.
Wholesome Bakery knows there are many different diets out there, and many people with allergies to different ingredients. Wholesome Bakery is about making delicious treats that all people, no matter what their diet, may enjoy. There is no wheat, no soy, no eggs, and no dairy in Wholesome Bakery's treats because these are all very common allergens, as well as zero refined sugars. Only wholesome ingredients and natural sweeteners are used. Those are Wholesome Bakery's standards: No junk, and no ingredients devoid of nutritional value.
Wholesome Bakery has been baking goodie after goodie, unrelenting in the quest for the best-tasting, most mouth-watering, least complicated treat. Wholesome Bakery uses local, organic ingredients, the lowest-level gluten flour, and low-glycemic sweeteners. The results, after years of hard-work (and lots of taste-testing) are delicious treats that taste like treats!
What began as goodies for a health-conscious individual years ago has blossomed into a full-scale bakery. Wholesome Bakery needs help taking its next big step: opening a retail location so everyone knows where to find our goodies!
Wholesome Bakery, right now, operates out of a commercial kitchen in the Mission District and is sold at numerous coffee shops, cafes, and grocery stores all over San Francisco. We have just started to expand outside of the city and this money will help with that even more. The dream has always been a retail location, where Wholesome Bakery can grow. Wholesome Bakery is now bigger than Mandy, and big enough to fill its own space. Cookies, bars, brownies, cupcakes, doughnuts, even ice cream--these are all part of Wholesome Bakery's vision. This vision can become a reality if the Bakery can raise enough money to move into a retail location and get down to business: providing customers and treat-enthusiasts with fresh deliciousness. Wholesome Bakery needs to fulfill its potential, and Wholesome Bakery needs to be accessible. If you taste one cookie you'll agree: Wholesome Bakery is the cookie of the future.
- The goal is $30,000: Equipment, permits, build-out, and all the costs associated with the growth of a small business
- Perks: Amazing treats that are wheat-free, dairy-free & egg-free, soy-free, yeast-free, trans-fat free, low glycemic, hormone-free and GMO free. Made with organic, local & sustainable ingredients and ridiculously addicting.
Wholesome Bakery wants to save the world from bad, junky, empty sweets. Even if you can't contribute to our financial goal, look for Wholesome Bakery cookie sandwiches across the city and try them yourself! Spread the word and enjoy!
