Cuisine professionnelle pour LO VI

 

Louise + Viveca = LO VI

We are two young women, one from New York (Louise) and one from Finland (Viveca). Life brought both of us to the Basque country for our separate reasons but we ended up meeting and becoming very close friends. Not wanting to leave this beautiful place, we decided to set up a small business baking and selling New York style muffins and cookies in our new home town, Hendaye. We started selling our products at local markets in September of 2017 and quickly began supplying for cafés in the area as well.

 

 

Our business started off strong and we are currently working hard to achieve our future goal, which is to have our own little coffee shop somewhere in the Basque region. However, we don't bite off more than we can chew, which is why we need your help to raise some money so that we can upgrade our kitchen for a more professional one! With a new kitchen we intend to increase our productivity and get one step closer to opening our own coffee shop.

Allocation of funds

HELP TWO YOUNG WOMEN AND THEIR SMALL BUSINESS GROW AND ENTER A NEW CHAPTER! And also... Who doesn't LOV(I) baked goods?!

 

 

Our aim is to fund our new professional kitchen, from an oven all the way down to baking bowls. We need this kitchen in order for us to increase our productivity and to grow as a business. Moreover, we need to move from our current business location to another in September 2018, which is why we are in great need for new kitchen equipment that we can bring with us to the new location! All the donations will go directly to our business account (LO VI SARL). 

 

First and foremost, we need a new professional baking oven! This will cost around 1100€ after taxes from professional kitchen machine suppliers in France. In addition, we will purchase a new energy-efficient (A++) fridge that will cost approximately 1100€, a kitchen island/storage unit on wheels (≈100€) and an Inox table with storage shelves for ingredients (≈500€). If we exceed our goal, we will use the money for additional baking equipment: steel bowls, containers to store flour and sugar and spices, a cooler for deliveries, an accurate thermometer, whisks, spatulas, knives and office supplies for management. Moreover, we will have the opportunity to choose an oven that is even better than the one we have chosen for our budget now. 

 

Our provisional timetable: 

 

∞ April/May 2018: launch our project on KissKissBankBank 

∞ June 2018: end of project

∞ June/July 2018: start sending rewards to donators

∞ July 2018: purchase the oven and the kitchen island

∞ August 2018: purchase the Inox table

∞ September 2018: purchase the fridge and finish sending all rewards

∞ September 2018: in case of exceeding our goal, we will spend the rest of the money buying more and better kitchenware and office supplies

 

 

Any and all donations will be so greatly appreciated.

 

(8% of donations will go towards KissKissBankBank and 10% towards our fees for the rewards you receive)
