Man has it been busy! With Mothers Day and some big orders, we just haven’t been able to nail down the app and what’s going to be in it. Sadie has been working the front and training, which is a full time job besides the rest of the hats she wears. We want our app to come out without issues, and staff fully trained on it. Thanks for hanging in there with us.
Well, we’re wading back into delivery services. After a horrible experience for us with DoorDash (never again) we have been trying out a new service. We needed a way for our out of town customers to be able to send goodies to family and friends. Delivery for us was rough. We could jump in a car when we had the time, but that’s not convenient and our courier services needed to be scheduled out a few days. These guys will pick up on a quick same day schedule and deliver within a window. The fees are reasonable within the Denver area, and it isn’t based on amount like those other guys, who took a delivery fee and then 30% of the sale. Yuck. We will need to use their service to estimate the fees, and then schedule them. So far we’ve used them twice, but probably will go with them from now on as long as our tests and our first customers are happy. Obviously we need a delivery service that can get our goodies out, and not be predatory on small business. Just ask us for the delivery quote. Yay delivery!
Well, May the 4th end up being on a day we are closed. Booo. R2 loves to come to the bakery to check out the desserts, and then we go terrorize the Target customers next door. It’s a fun geeky day for us. We hope to open back up on Tuesday (shh.. It’s not official yet) later this year once we get staffing settled.
For tomorrow, happy May the 4th to all of our geeky friends!
