Blanche Bakery & Coffee STRETCH GOAL #1 | Help us open up a 100% vegan bakery and coffee shop in the heart of Roath
Stretch Goal! £4,000
We’ve reached our goal!
As most of you already know, we reached our goal two days ago. Thank you so much to all of you that have supported us with your generous pledges and for helping us spread the word, we couldn’t do it without you!
With all the excitement surrounding the project and 19 days to go, we’d like to announce a stretch goal that will allow us to purchase a refrigerated cabinet so that we’ll be able to serve fresh sandwiches, pasta pots, paninis and other goods to go/eat in.
We’d love to be your convenient vegan go-to on your way to work/uni/the park and with a cabinet we can have all these things ready for you to pick up anytime.
Blanche Bakery started serving delicious vegan baked goods one year ago. We have had so much support from the people of Cardiff in the last 12 months. We’ve expanded from online orders and events, to supplying some of the cities best-loved independent businesses, including Clancy’s, Barkers and Beanfreaks; and we’ve recently opened our pop-up shop in the creative hotspot that is The Castle Emporium on Womanby Street. We’ve had the pleasure of working with some amazing local and international brands, businesses and charities including The Alzheimer’s Society, Clic Sargent, Heads Above The Waves, Simple Knots Craft Club, Bump n Grind, Retrofest, Dirty Martini, Clayton Hotels and Toyota.
We were lucky enough to be nominated for the ‘Best Vegan Cake’ award in the 2017 Vegan Awards. We’re grateful for this recognition, as each of our cakes, cookies, brownies and doughnuts are lovingly handmade and decorated with quality ingredients. All of our products are 100% vegan and soya free, and can also be made gluten free. Our aim is to offer food that everyone can enjoy whilst not compromising on taste.
We now have our sights on a permanent site in Roath which would be Cardiff’s first 100% vegan bakery and coffee shop. Located just a stone’s throw away from the cultural hub of Albany Road, the new location would serve a full range of treats including brunch, takeaway lunches and afternoon tea. We want the shop to be part of the community where you can pop in for a chat and indulge in a friendly and relaxing atmosphere, and we want to expand the range of food and drink that we can offer you.
We have secured a loan to purchase the property, but we need your help to make this dream a reality. Your pledges will help us to buy equipment and fixtures to offer you the range of products and atmosphere you deserve. The more money we raise, the more food and drink we will be able to offer you.
Your funds will help us pay for:
-Food equipment such as a panini maker, blender.
