I launched Marlo's Bakeshop in 2013 with a simple idea: I had a unique and delicious cookie recipe that my family had enjoyed for decades and I wanted a way to share with you.
Over 5 years we've grown from 1 café selling my grandma's cookie recipe to now having over 1,000 retail, distributor and corporate customers that purchase our 8 products. We have increased sales an average of 65% per year and we've sold >2,000,000 cookies!
We are ready to take the next steps to expand our distribution, improve your online shopping experience, and bring our new line of Crispy Cookie Bites to market. To do so, we are fundraising on WeFunder, the largest Regulation Crowdfunding portal.
We love our customers more than anything, so we're giving you the chance to be an owner with us and formally join our family: when you participate in this fundraising round you'll be getting future equity in exchange for your investment.
Here’s a fun fact: in 2012, Oculus Rift closed a Kickstarter round of $2.4 Million. Two years later, Facebook bought Oculus for $2 Billion. If those Kickstarter backers had invested instead of donating they could have had a 154x return on their investment.
Thank you for your time & support!

Q: What is Equity Crowdfunding?
A: Equity crowdfunding allows businesses to raise money from a large group of people at smaller investment amounts. In return, those people get a financial stake in that company.
Q: Is this Kickstarter?
A: No. On Wefunder, you’re not donating; you’re investing. You’re not just a fan, you’re an owner.
