Let me be transparent...
Here are some questions you may ask all folded into these short paragraphs:
The business is growing and staff are here today, gone tomorrow."I kept praying, "Lord, I can't keep at this pace. I need help. The answer didn't come in the form of extra staff for help. Currently, I am not sure what our population is doing for income, but as you've seen in your area, folks just aren't looking for work. Things have changed and we have to adapt. Realizing over time we can't stress, we have to keep pushing forward and finding a way around obstacles. One day I felt the Lord saying to me, "Simplify. Get rid of all the noise." While baking I get to think and ponder in my quiet time and I realized he meant to change the way I do business and trust Him. So, I replaced new hires and I bought a vending machine for my downtown store. I've totally simplified my business. Getting back to the basics with just myself baking and adding some cutting edge technology.
I am thrilled that you still come and support my business, but I just can't do it all by myself. Finding good help is hard as I don't have time to babysit today's generation. I've found that I'm better off doing it myself and the phone has become a great information source. I have a great phone system that answers a lot of questions before we speak, so please take the time to slow down, listen and read, and your questions just may be answered.
Baking while the store is open is part of the charm that I bring to The Peppered Cupcake. Everything is from scratch and since I bake for both stores, quality and customer service is priority.
My downtown store is completely a self-help location with a brand new Intelligent Cupcake Vending Machine. Yes, you read that right! At least 8 flavors daily and open 7 days a week. Yes, I can be in 2 places at once now;)
Remember, not only can you see the Baking Today list here online, you can always call and get flavors available through the auto attendant as I keep it updated. Vending machine flavors are not listed online or via the phone.
I appreciate you more than you know! See you soon:)
