Café Du Pain Bakery is a creative collaboration between founders (and sisters!) Marie Onyeani and Judithe Registre.
Marie has always been a baker, using the exotic flavors she grew up with in Haiti to create mouthwatering treats like her famous Caribbean Coconut Cake and Coconut Bread Pudding (yum!). She started her career as a teacher, spending over 10 years in the New Jersey public school system before deciding to put down her chalk and put on an apron to nurse her passion. Today, she is the head chef and baker at Café Du Pain Bakery.
Judithe is an impassioned traveler, a warrior for all things that make a positive social impact anywhere, and a global champion for girls, women, children, and anyone whose voice cries out to be heard. Her long career as an international social impact innovator has taken her on adventures around the world, from the Democratic Republic of the Congo to Nepal, to (almost) everywhere in between. Whenever she’s in a new city, she’s always looking for two things: a delicious baked good, and an exquisite cup of coffee. Judithe is excited to be working with her sister as a strategic advisor to create a welcoming community with unique flavor in Lawrenceville, NJ.
Together, Marie and Judithe are a dynamic duo who believe that coffee and pastries can bring people together and create a more delicious world.
Our ambition is to be an influential and innovative women-owned food company offering experiences through delicious baked goods that connects people to rich and diverse cultures. We seek to grow revenue year over year with data that reconcile purpose and profit through quality of service, products, and a consistently positive experience for our customers, partners and team.
What’s the goal?
After opening our doors about six months ago, we’re ready to take our business to the next level for sustainable growth. Our goal is to raise $50,000 for this round.
We would use this funds to prepare for growth and expansion of Café Du Pain Bakery.
Immediately, we will be able to focus our marketing on new customer acquisitions, better customer experiences and greater customer retention.
The technology and equipment upgrades necessary for operational efficiency and product consistency could accelerate and drive the infrastructure build out to begin our local delivery and national shipping services.

That’s why we’re not only dedicated to creating delicious culinary creations; we’re also incorporate give back social impact model true to vision.
