Local Bakery Turns to Crowdfunding for New Location

PROVIDENCE, RI – Sin Bakery will be launching a Kickstarter campaign in March to help fund their expansion and move to the west side of Providence.

Sin, a custom cake bakery, founded in 2007 and located at 200 Allens Avenue in Providence, is looking to move to the west side to expand their retail and introduce a dessert cafe.

They will expand their pastry selection with more muffins, cookies, brownies and scones, and will be introducing evening desserts, based on the 7 deadly sins, each will change seasonally and be paired with a wine, a beer and a cocktail.

Sin’s owner, Jennifer Luxmoore said, “After our setback last year, we had so many people tell us they were looking forward to us moving and many of them asked how they could help. We’ve had so much support we decided a Kickstarter may be a good idea.”  Sin plans to launch a Kickstarter campaign in March to raise $30,000.

Last July the WBNA’s plan to remediate the gas station at 1326 Westminster derailed after extensive testing revealed high levels of PCBs in the walls. This was to be the new site of Sin Bakery. Luxmoore says, “All the buildings we’ve looked are are more expensive, larger and will not be white boxed (clean) when we get it so the cost will be significantly higher than before. We need the additional $30,000 to secure the rest of the loan.” If all goes well, Sin would hope to move and open in the fall.

A webpage has been set up here: http://prefundia.com/projects/view/a-bigger-better-sin-bakery/3802/ laying out the Kickstarter plan. You can see the plan, ask questions and sign up to be notified when the campaign starts. Contact Sin at info@eatwicked.com, www.eatwicked.com.
