After returning home from Italy, we dove right back in—cheesemaking, demos and Farm Table Dinners! There was no rest for us—and we kind of like it that way.
We are so excited to be here today to finally reveal our special announcement and the explanation behind the photo that launched 1,000 questions 😉
As everyone knows, the Caputo Brothers are growing up. That being said, we’re ready to begin the next phase of our business—expansion!
We’ve launched a Kickstarter campaign to help bring our mozzarella curds directly to your kitchen! That’s right, the Caputo Brothers are broadening their horizons!
What is Kickstarter?
Kickstarter is a new way to fund creative projects and bring them to life. Backing a project is more than just giving someone money– it’s supporting their dream to create something that they want to see exist in the world. People rally around their friends’ projects, fans support people they admire, and others simply come to Kickstarter to be inspired by new ideas.
Our cheese is currently used in restaurants and stores in New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Harrisburg, Memphis and everywhere in between! But we are constantly asked by individuals “how can I get your cheese delivered to my house?”
Expanding to include delivery options would immediately grow our business by giving us the opportunity to offer more product to a broader community. This initiative will take the cheese you’ve already fallen in love with even farther (literally!).
In order to make Caputo Brothers Creamery “retail-ready,” our goal of $28,500 will directly fund:
- Renovating our existing milkhouse to serve as a functioning distribution and packaging center
- Packaging and shipping materials to ensure the cheese is ready for stretching when it arrives at your door!
In reality, the cost of such an undertaking will likely be higher than the goal we have set here but we hope to use this campaign as a way to handle a majority of it and hopefully the final amount raised will be an even greater number when all is said and done. Any additional funds raised will be used to enhance this initiative (additional packaging materials, the possibility to expand our retail offerings such as provolone-style cheeses, etc.)
Today is the first official day of our 30 day-campaign and we could not be more excited, but we can’t take off without you. Are you on board?
