Sweets by Jeannie is opening a storefront!

Sweets by Jeannie is teaming up with Coast to Coast Coffee to open the perfect cafe.

About the campaign

We have exciting news to share! Sweets by Jeannie and Coast to Coast Coffee have finally secured a brick-and-mortar location in University Place. We've leased a space on Bridgeport that has already been built out, so we only need a small amount of funding to get our doors open. We will be cooking fresh food made to order in the cafe, and therefore we need to upgrade a few pieces of equipment in the kitchen. This funding will enable us to have a full menu, complete with all of your favorite sweet and savory dishes from the farmer's market. The funds will also provide us with a bit of operating capital while we ramp up our new business.

So far, we've been able to self-fund Sweets by Jeannie and Coast to Coast Coffee, but now we need your help to turn our small coffee and sweets businesses into one amazing café.

We are eager to give this community the type of eatery it deserves and would love to include you in our new location. Will you join us in this next exciting phase of our growth?

About Sweets by Jeannie

Sweets by Jeannie sells variety of homemade baked goods at the Farmers Market. We're opening our own brick and mortar location in University Place, where we will be be offering a full cafe menu and coffee! Coast to Coast Coffee provides all coffee products.

Businesses in a community help make it unique and give it character. University Place needs more than chain restaurants and fast food. As the community builds and adds new business adding local business will add to its unique character. The comment that has been constant when I tell people that I will be opening a café in University Place is always "good, we could use more places to go and eat and get coffee". We will also be selling and serving our own private label fresh roasted coffee, something new to the area.

Sweets by Jeannie was established in 2013, and is located in University Place, WA.

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.
