Pacific Pickle Works, a specialty producer of pickled vegetables located in Santa Barbara, recently launched a 30-day Kickstarter.com campaign to raise $30,000 to help grow the company.
Launched in 2010, the company supplies its all natural pickled vegetables to gourmet grocery and specialty food stores in the greater Santa Barbara County and Ventura region. Their products include pickled vegetables such as green beans, asparagus, beets, carrots, and okra as well as their signature Bloody Mary Elixir. With increasing demand from Whole Foods Market and other specialty grocery chains in Southern California, the company is ready to expand into a new facility, and has chosen crowd-funding to raise its first round of initial capital.
“Crowd-funding is a great way to raise money quickly from a large group of people and spread awareness about our brand and products at the same time,” said Bradley Bennett, Pacific Pickle Works founder. “Contributors love it because, in addition to helping out startup companies they resonate with, they also always get something meaningful in return such as product or cool company-branded apparel.”
The campaign, which can also be found at pacificpickleworks.com, runs through December 27.
