Jordan Bakery Box

I'm excited to tell you some behind the scenes details of Jordan Bakery Box today.

I had been feeling the urge to bake and sell for a while.  

I envisioned selling cookies and bread right away.  As you know, I build charcuterie boards for my family all the time.  Some friends would tell me that they'd love to buy boards from me for their families for holidays.  I got to thinking of ways I could build boxes for other families.  I ironed out the logistics on the treadmill most days :) and with the help of family and friends.  I ended up launching JBB with charcuterie boxes!

Coming up with a name was hard.  I'd find things I like and then go to see if they were available on Facebook and Instagram.  That sent me back to the drawing board several times.  I started dreaming of Jordan Bakery Box - everything I sell in a pretty box wrapped with a bow and it just fit.  

I designed my logo - polka dots are true to my brand, three rings around my logo for my 3 kids, 1 ring for Kevin, fonts that felt like me and everything black and white.  I ordered pie boxes, ribbon and logo stickers in bulk.  It was a risk and I'm working hard to make my little bakery dream come true.

Kevin and the kids are super proud.  They love knowing their friends or teachers or neighbors are buying boxes from me.  Olive labeled boxes for her friends and Fletcher wrote hi to his friends on their boxes.  Olive is getting great reviews from teachers at school.  Fletcher promotes for me at school and tells people to find me on Facebook and the big kids help take care of Leo when it's box building crunch time.  Kevin is all hands on deck helping me wrangle kids if I need to shop or chop.  It's a whole team effort.

I started by selling a few St Patrick's Day boxes to friends.  I sold 4 and learned a ton by assembling those boxes for the first time.

I worked out some of the kinks, bought a bigger cooler and then offered Easter boxes across all my social media channels.  I got a great response and sold 18 boxes.  Kevin surprised me and bought us a mini fridge to help store all the boxes and supplies.  I really appreciated him believing in me.

I'm currently selling Hello Spring charcuterie boxes this week.  Orders get picked up on Friday/Saturday by local friends and neighbors and new friends as word gets out.  My plan is to offer boxes to buy 1-2 times a month.

I am so happy to have a job that I can do from home, with my kids around.  I can prep things at night.  Shop for inventory with Leo and build my business around my day to day mom routine.  It's been really rewarding and really exciting.

I can't wait to see all the fun boxes you come up with this year! My mom had a baking business when I was in college. She sold all her baked goodies at banks, hair salons and offices.
