Help Local Cheesy Puffery Launch a New Flavor

We're bringing our handcrafted cheesy puffs to the entire West Coast & need working capital to buy bulk packaging & launch a new flavor

About the campaign

The Journey of Fuller Foods

We founded this company in 2012 in an effort to bring, fun and delicious products made with local, organic ingredients to more Oregonians. We've found that people absolutely love our products and now we are rapidly growing our distribution across the West Coast. We still hand-produce our cheesy puffs in our small kitchen in Portland, OR.

What this Campaign Will Fund

With all this new demand comes the need to order new packaging and supplies for our upcoming fall production. A larger amount of working capital will allow us to buy this packaging in bulk and get big discounts that help us keep costs low.

About Fuller Foods Serious Cheesy Puffs

Portland based micro cheesy puffery handcrafting non-GMO and absurdly large cheesy puffs in bold flavors using only wholesome ingredients, such as Bob's Red Mill corn and Pacific Northwest cheese.

Fuller Foods takes a handcrafted, wholesome approach to cheesy puffs and is the only small business to do so. By handcrafted, we actually mean a four person production staff physically making, baking, seasoning, and packaging puffs by hand. As a company ethos, we only use wholesome and non-GMO ingredients so simple, you can buy them yourself at your grocery store. Primarily made with local ingredients, we use exclusively Bob's Red Mill corn from Oregon and California and hormone-free cheese from Oregon, Washington, and Idaho. Furthermore, we never use overly processed, unnecessary, or cheap ingredients commonly found in "natural" or "organic" foods, such as maltodextrin, annatto, whey/buttermilk powder, and "natural flavors". We hope to create a new paradigm in making snacks that needn't be so complicated and chemical-laden.

Fuller Foods Serious Cheesy Puffs was established in 2012, and is located in Portland, OR.

Partner with community sourced capital

Community Sourced Capital exists so that businesses can access affordable capital from their community

By connecting community members, small business owners and mission-aligned funders to the goal of creating healthy communities, we’re introducing a new purpose for financial systems, removing barriers to success for entrepreneurs, and building meaningful relationships around money.

Providing affordable capital to community businesses is vital to our economy

Small businesses are the key generators of jobs in our economy and character in our communities. Everyone seems to know that. What most people don't know is how important funding is to the success of a business.

Even in this day and age, most small businesses simply cannot access the funding they need to succeed. New lenders have emerged to serve this need, but many of them charge equivalent interest rates upwards of 20 or 50 percent. These rates can compromise the stability of the businesses that ultimately provide stability to our communities.

Participate in a financial system for communities, by communities

Join a growing community of lenders regenerating their local economies through finance. Participate in a loan for a small business. Grow your business with your community. Invest in the success of your neighbor.

That's the spirit behind Community Sourced Capital's motto: Fund the world you want to live in.
