Hey everyone! It has been tooooooo long since I’ve posted a blog. It’s hard running your own business and doing everything on your own. Speaking of which, if anyone knows of a good accountant or CPA, send them my way, their help is much needed!
Anyways, what has Good Sugar Baking been up to?! Preparing for the holidays, mostly. I’m gaining traction with beer and cookie pairings happening all over town every week. I’m also getting my name out there with silent auctions and community events, meanwhile still selling cookies to breweries. It has been pretty great.
Since the holiday’s are coming up, I’m going to be focusing on catering events, holiday gifts and whatever else. So if you have any events coming up that cookies can be a part of, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Need gifts? Cookies are so good!
New cookies are always happening too!!! My smores cookies went over so well at my good friends’ wedding that they are now a thing at pairings. I also have some Thanksgiving cookies coming out that will be SO GOOD.
What else is there?! Let me know what ideas you have for the upcoming months. How can we work together to benefit our businesses or anything else?! Please reach out to me whenever!
Don’t forget that a percentage of every sale goes to Foundation for Foster Children. They’re a great nonprofit!
I’ve heard a lot of people talk about how great Good Sugar Baking’s cookies would be for their company events, holidays, graduations, etc. It was already in the works to have catering as an option because it is such an easy and great way to provide sweets for a large amount of people so I’m excited to know that other people feel the same way.
Doing a lot of research has provided me with great price points for catering events, making sure to include the percentage that goes to nonprofits every time. It’s a fun challenge to come up with prices for my baked goods. I really would love to charge the least amount possible because, to me, it’s about providing something enjoyable while giving back to others, but that’s not realistic when it comes to owning a business. Bummer! Nonetheless, I think all of my pricing is affordable and I’m not asking for some ridiculous price.
The fun thing with catering is a lot of the times you can be flexible. I have an order next week that includes gluten free cookies and they told me to do whatever I’d like with them, which I’m excited about because I’m still messing around with gluten free recipes.
If you’re interested in some catering for an upcoming event (please give me plenty of notice, especially if it’s a giant order!), you can reach me at email@example.com or I just launched a new page on this site to help you out!! Check it out: Let’s Get Cookies!
