Bundt Blessings wins "Best Start-Up" Pitch at Entrepreneur Expose'
Published:Tuesday, December 07, 2010, 9:27 AM by Melissa Gasnick Cloeter and Linda Wellbrock/Business
For some attendees, our last Entrepreneur Expose´ proved to be an eye-opening experience to their businesses. One such entrepreneur is Kathleen Fitzpatrick of Bundt Blessings from Morristown, NJ, winner of “Best Start-Up Business” category.
Bundt Blessings started four years ago when Kathleen's life as a single mother left her searching for extra-income opportunities during the holiday season. To her surprise, she found that her products were in demand regardless of the holidays as people requested them to celebrate many milestones in life. Recognizing an opportunity, Kathleen has since grown Bundt Blessings into a successful year-round business, emphasizing quality and personalization. Kathleen explains, “It is our mission to bring an exceptional cake product to the market while adding a meaningful touch through the customized blessing messages attached. We feel it is our privilege to provide a product that not only perpetuates goodness but also guarantees quality.”
While she still struggles with the difficulties associated with growth, Kathleen is determined that Bundt Blessings will continue to be present for the most important celebrations of people's lives. It appears that her customers agree, as Bundt Blessings continues to grow even in this weak economy. As Kathleen notes, “Thankfully, the economy has not impacted our business. Being that our product is geared primarily toward celebrating life’s big events (new baby, new home, teacher’s gifts, gets well, holiday gifts, sympathy); it seems to be a priority in our client’s lives. People who were buying our Bundt cakes were buying them for the belief in both the quality and the blessings; a combination that can’t be beat!”
A role model for single mothers with an entrepreneurial spirit, Kathleen impressed both judges and attendees with her story and her fabulously tasty Bundt cake. Once you taste her wonderful creation, you will see why Kathleen and Bundt Blessings won “Best Start-Up” pitch. We encourage you to support her business this Holiday Season and order a Bundt Blessing. You will LOVE these cakes!
