Vermont Bakery For Sale For $75 (Sort Of)

This is a new take on crowdfunding by DreamBroker Industries. A Vermont bakery is now on the market for the low price of $75, an essay (just 100 words this time!), and your very best cupcake recipe.

Mix Cupcakerie and Kitchen is a charming shop in Waitsfield that has been selling comfort food and cupcakes and catering local events for the past two years. But now, owner Carole Keleher's family is relocating to Cape Cod, and she needs to find a suitable owner to take over not just the storefront but the business as well—as quickly as possible. She decided the best way to do so was to charge interested applicants just $75. For that price, aspiring bakers will receive: The 800 square foot storefront; everything in the fully-stocked kitchen down to the pots and pans; all of Keleher's popular recipes; 80 hours of training from Keleher herself; and the first two months rent, utilities, ingredients, and payroll for the existing two employees.
