P J & Susan's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped produce and package our low-carb cookies for sale to the public through an initial commercial bakery production run, helping us expand to a nationwide market.
P J & Susan's story
We founded TastyTowne because we each had health-transforming experiences as a result of adopting a carb-restricted nutritional plan and became determined to make the same benefits available to everyone without having to give up the tastes and textures of the foods they love or having to spend hours of research and preparation in the kitchen just to enjoy a treat. We each came to embrace low-carb lifestyle for different health concerns—for Susan, as a precautionary measure in light of a pre-diabetic blood glucose reading and a family history of diabetes, for me, as a method to achieve weight-control after 10 years of obesity. We’ve both enjoyed amazing results—a return to totally normal blood glucose levels and a 45-lb loss of excess weight, respectively. Susan’s been developing low-carb versions of desserts, baked goods, and other products the for three years. Her amazing results are the product of intense research, experimentation, and an intense passion for food science. As a more recent low-carb adopter, I was immensely grateful to have her low-carb treats available. We realized that if these low-carb foods were readily available in pre-packaged form, people would be able to adhere to a low-carb lifestyle much, much more painlessly. We decided that cookies would be one of the most intensely-craved items that we could formulate for a packaged food product fairly quickly and spent 6 months finalizing three perfect cookie varieties with fewer than 1-2 carbs each—Chocolate Chip, Ginger Snap, and Sugar Cookie. We are personally enthused to help those who are struggling to stick to a low-carb plan or suffering due to the lack of low-carb options get to enjoy amazing cookies again. We are eager to share our cookies with the rest of the world and put a low-carb treat within everyone’s reach.
