A Dream Realized! Treats by The Picky Eater has secured a home at 2706 MacArthur Blvd in the Dimond District of Oakland and we need your help!

Hello Friends and Family!

As many of you know, I have been working dilligently over the last few years to get my business, Treats by The Picky Eater up and running. 

Well the time has come for me to have a phsyical location and was blessed to obtain an affordable commercial space that will allow me to sell my baked goods on a retail basis in the Oakland Dimond District. No baking will be done on the premises, I will be using a commercial kitchen.

A little history on what got me here:

19xx: I was born

198x: My Mother refused to buy cookies and cakes because she had "eggs, butter, flour and sugar" In the kitchen

198x - forward: A love of baking began and in High School was known for my chocolate chip cookies. My friends tried to get me to start a cookie business then, but cooking wasn't what I wanted to do with my life, or so I thought.

2008-2009 attended culinary school in Austin and graduated.

2009: Moved back to the Bay Area in a bad economic climate, unable to find a job, Treats by The Picky Eater was born.

2009- forward:  Worked on building The Picky Eater  brand. 

I am looking to raise between $10,000 and $15,000 in the next 30 days. Target grand opening date is 11/19 and the funds will go towards equipment purchase and operating overhead. I would eventually like to start a mentorship program for youth in the community that are interested in baking/food service careers. Thank you in advance for your support!
