Updates as of 11/12/13

We are still work hard towards opening the bakery.  A couple weeks ago we had some friends else out with a little demolition work an painting.  Now we are waiting to hear back from one of our engineers before moving forward with the next phase of construction.

We have our e-store up for pre-orders on gift certificates as well as donations.  Donation money goes straight into the funds we are using to build our bakery, so if you would like to help, this is a great way!  Even if it’s just a $5 donation, it is a huge help.

Currently we are playing a bit of the waiting game.  We are taking care of a lot of “administrative” type work (basically all the paperwork behind starting a business) while we wait for our final construction plans as well as our loan that will help us complete the project more quickly.

If you would like to help, please head over to the e-store to make a donation, or contact us at info@mandrbakery.com

Thank you everyone and have a blessed day!

Our new e-store

M&R is proud to announce that we have set up our online store!  Currently, We are only offering gift certificates for purchase, as well as an M&R fund jar that you can contribute too.

The gift certificates are bought in $20 increments.  One certificate will be enough to pay for small and simple orders.  This can include cookies (1-2 dozen, depending on the type of cookie, and if there is any decorating done to it), cupcakes (1 dozen depending on flavor and how decorated they are), and many other types of baked goods.  It will also cover a large portion of the total for small and simply decorated cake orders.

Gift certificates make excellent Christmas gifts, or host/hostess gifts  for any upcoming holiday parties you will be attending.   As a quick note, we will not be shipping these until the first week of December, so if you do want to present them as a gift for Thanksgiving, then please email us at info@MandRBakery.com with the name and mailing address you provided on paypal so we can get yours mailed sooner.

You can also purchase the gift certificates for yourself.  Doing this will help us with our start up cost while also giving you, $ for $, the ability to use all that you put in, towards future purchases.

If you would like to help us financially with our start up cost but do not necessarily expect or want anything in return, we also have an M&R Fund Jar in the e-store.  By contributing through the fund jar, all that you contribute will go towards our start up cost, unlike the gift certificates where we will have to put some of it away to save for when the gift certificate is redeemed.

We have had many people who have been extremely helpful during this start up process.  In the winter (sometime in January) we will be hosting a Thank You party.  Anyone who contributes $100 or more to our fund jar will be invited to this party.  At the party we will have an excellent dessert bar and plenty of door prizes.   It will be a fun night in the bakery!

So head on over to the E-store and check it out!  All payments are made through paypal.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Contest for 10/11/13

So, it is contest time!  For those of you that have participated in our contests in the past, this is a little different set up.  However, I think this will work better because it will not require you to use an app!

Reward:  1 dozen cookies!  Pick between chocolate chip cookies or oatmeal raisin.

Rules:

Below is a small list of things you can do to earn entries into our drawing.  For every task you get done,  you get a certain number of entries (number of available entries you can receive will be listed with each task).

When you have completed 1 or more of the tasks, simply leave a comment below listing the tasks you completed.  If one of the tasks you completed was making a pledge, you do not have to list the $ amount you pledged if you do not want to.  Simply type in “Pledged on Kickstarter” or something like that to note you completed that task.  Please make sure the name you give us in the comment below matches your name (or at least closely resembles it) that you pledged with on Kickstarter.  (Such as, correct first name with the Initial of your last name…)

We will ship the cookies to anywhere in the lower 48 states of the USA.  If you win and wish to make the cookies a gift to someone else, we can make those arrangements.

The winner will be contacted via the email provided, so make sure you give us the correct email!

When commenting, your name will be public, but your email address will not.

Again, you do not have to complete each task, but for each one completed, you will earn an extra entry.

The tasks:

1.  Visit our Kickstarter page and make a pledge of any size.

Number of entries:  $1-19: One entry.  $20-49: two entries.  $50: Three entries.  For every $25 above $50, you get an extra entry.

Remember to comment below listing which ones you did.   Again, you do not have to share your pledge amount.  As long as your name matches the name you used on Kickstarter to pledge with, we can check that so it doesn’t have to be public.

Time Frame:  Pledges count if they are made 10/9/13-10/11/13

Contest will close at 8pm CST on Friday, October 11th, 2013 so get your task(s) done in time and don’t forget to comment below when you’ve done it!

We will draw 1 winner and they will be contacted by Saturday, October 12th, via the email address they provide.
