Happy May! I’m sure you’ve seen the great Justin Timberlake meme “It’s gonna be May,” which I’m super pumped about because WHO DOESN’T THINK NSYNC WAS THE BEST BOY BAND?!?! I actually liked Backstreet Boys more but we can fight about that later.
Anyways, this month is going to be a busy and fun one for Good Sugar Baking! We’re starting off strong with National Small Business Week. Not that we’re doing much with it, except acknowledging that we’re the smallest of all the small businesses, working hard and seeing movement happening. This week started back in 1963 when President Lyndon B. Johnson proclaimed that American small businesses helped create competition with big businesses and gave consumers choices. Ever since then, a week in May is declared National Small Business Week to celebrate the success of all small businesses. We’re one of them! Yay for giving consumers delicious cookie choices!
What else is going on this month?! Well, there’s going to be a Good Sugar Baking launch party at Zuni Street May 23rd from 4-8pm. There will be a beer and cookie pairing in case you missed the last one, but it will also initiate the great partnership between the brewery and bakery as Zuni Street Brewing is going to be selling Good Sugar Baking cookies on a regular basis!
Other than that, I’m busy working on all of the Kickstarter rewards (thanks again everyone!), scheduling events around town, getting more accounts to carry cookies and planning for the rest of the summer. Hint: there’s going to be a summer party in a month or so that involves cookies and ice cream…yum!!
Oh, I’m also working on a gluten free cookie for all of you glutards. It had to happen some day. I’m hopeful that it’ll turn out to be THE BEST COOKIE EVER.
