Project Description

THE BIG QUESTION:

If Seattle is ESPRESSO CAPITAL of America, WHERE'S ALL THE CANNOLI???

Who & What is Kelly Cannoli:

Established in 2013, Kelly Cannoli LLC is a catering & wholesale business in Seattle, Washington.  Kelly started the business as a side-hustle to her day job, but 6 years later, after giving it her full-time attention, Kelly obtained a permit to open a small cannoli shop in a vacant espresso stand in North Seattle.  Located just 1 mile off I-5, at the corner of Northgate Way & Lake City Way, Kelly's little PINK shop is hard to miss!

 What Kelly Wants To Do:

Kelly wants to merge the northeast & northwest cultures together to create a unique New-York style experience in the typical Seattle fashion: a drive-thru espresso stand!  Her goal is to make fresh-filled cannoli available to the public, both individually and/or by the dozen, along with an espresso.  But she can't stop there.  She needs to expand the menu to include other items.  More cannoli items.  More breakfast items.  Cannoli Cake by the slice.  Want cannoli for breakfast?  Donnoli.  Donut + Cannoli = Donnoli.  What about shipping fresh bagels from New York?  Want coffee and a bagel?  Kelly will have it for you here.

What Kelly Currently Does:

Kelly spends her mornings at the commissary kitchen and her afternoons keeping the shop open from 11-7.  When not serving customers at the window, she's busy growing the catering & wholesale side of the business.

What's Holding Kelly Back?

She can't afford to staff the shop unless she expands the menu to offer more variety.  She can't offer more variety unless she has the right equipment & appliances. 

Donut + Cannoli = Donnoli

Why Kelly's Raising Money:

Kelly needs appliances & equipment.

(Kelly borrowed equipment to initially get the shop open) 

How the Funds will be Used: 

  • 2 commercial-grade refrigerators ($2000) 
  • 2 refrigerated display cases ($1200)
  • 1 lighted pastry case ($500)
  • 1 large chest freezer ($600) 
  • 1 ice maker machine ($1700)
