Kiss Me Cupcakes (KMC) is a partnership between two friends, Dali and Mary, who decided to set up their own business on returning from traveling abroad. They provide gift and occasion cupcakes, as well as offering corporate ‘logo’ cupcakes and a barista service for corporate events.
Dali and Mary had both worked in administration jobs and holistic therapies before. They had a very strong vision of what they wanted to achieve, but felt unsure on legal responsibilities, tax and benefits responsibilities, any financial support that might be available and how to market themselves. They worked with sweda to develop their business plan, financials and marketing plan and successfully secured funding from Greets Green Partnership and Black Country Enterprise Loan Fund.
From hiring a local kitchen a couple of days a week, KMC has gone from strength to strength. They regularly service large orders for celebration events and are currently looking for larger premises. They have been featured in the local, regional and national press. Most recently, they secured a contract with The Art Lounge in Mailbox Birmingham to provide cupcakes for their newly opened cafe.
