Reasons to Invest

  • Good karma is baked in:  Karma Baker is changing the face of dessert by proving that the demand for plant-based and gluten-free desserts is insatiable. These desserts are so good and healthy even people that are not necessarily looking for vegan or gluten-free are choosing Karma Baker.


  • The sky's the limit: The market for plant based foods is skyrocketing, expecting to reach $162 billion within the decade according to a report by Bloomberg Intelligence. More than 50% of millennials are trying to incorporate plant-based and unprocessed foods into their diet. We are making it easy (and delicious) for them. 


  • Meeting the Moment. The pandemic has forever changed how people get the food they want. Our online sales have organically increased on average 160% each year since 2018.  With an ever-increasing army of thousands of loyal and enthusiastic customers over the entire US and a large growing social following (41k+ Instagram followers) and great reviews across the board (4.5+ stars).

Overview


A fresh approach to baked goods


Karma Baker is revolutionizing your favorite dessert by delivering fresh and healthy desserts, consciously and sustainably. We make the desserts you love without the ingredients that drag you – and our planet – down. Our vegan and gluten free tasty treats are made in our conscious and loving bakeries around North America. Our goal is to not only be the best plant-based dessert you’ve ever had, but to be THE BEST dessert you’ve ever had, with locations in macro population centers and quick and easy delivery to everyone in the comfort of their homes. We strongly believe that we can make the world a better place with the best plant-based enlightened food. Eat. Good. Karma.


the problem


The demand for healthy, plant-based and gluten-free food is exploding, but when it comes to dessert, most taste like a cardboard substitute for what you really want 


There’s a reason people think healthy, vegan and gluten-free (GF) food is boring. They’ve probably had a bad experience because someone just left out the butter and eggs on their chocolate cupcake recipe, and in the name of health replaced it with something green. 


Blech.  


We specialize in creating rich and satisfying desserts. Creating our own butter and egg substitutes when there weren’t many choices in the marketplace. We wow eaters with a surprising taste and texture, just like the “real thing”. No one misses the animal-based ingredients and they are happier because of that. 


For health reasons many people need to adopt a healthier, plant-based and GF diet or lifestyle and don't live near a vegan bakery. Many don’t have the time to source or create their own plant-based and GF goodies in a world still accustomed to rudimentary baking and cooking ingredients. 


More and more Doctors are recognizing and prescribing the health benefits of a plant-based diet. 



The Market


Plant-based foods are the new normal


The biggest food trend growing in 2020 so far is the desire for more plant-based foods! Plant-based foods continue to win over America’s stomachs and wallets with 57 percent of all U.S. households purchased plant-based foods (that's over 71 million households)- up from 53 percent in 2019. Current data tells us unequivocally that an ever-growing number of consumers are incorporating plant-based foods into their diet because they taste good and boost their health. The U.S. retail for plant-based in 2020 grew 27 percent bringing the total plant-based market value to $7 billion.


Additionally, an estimated 83% of Americans are reportedly trying to incorporate more plant-based foods into their diets.


While the plant based industry is focused on burger joints and alternative milks, we are giving people what they love – with a cherry on top. 




Karma Baker is happy to be mirroring this trend as we experienced our fastest and largest growth in online sales in 2020 when we then doubled the size of our physical bakery.

THE solution


We are saving the planet, your sweet tooth, and your soul's karma



We have created 100% vegan, gluten-free, kosher, and sustainable (100% dairy, egg, and animal-free) desserts that are both delicious and ethically sourced. We are catapulting forward where other dessert brands left off with the best plant-based ingredients available. We offer the dessert you love (without the ingredients you don’t): cookies, donuts, holiday treats like pies and gingerbread houses, and of course birthday cakes.


Our founder and head baker, Celine, created Karma Baker so that people around the world could have access to guilt-free great-tasting desserts. We’ve also perfected our safe, sustainable packaging and delivery process, so that every dessert that gets sent out arrives just as fresh as it was at the bakery, undamaged.


*This testimonial may not be representative of the experience of other customers and is not a guarantee of future performance or success.



Karma Baker is an online direct-to-consumer business. We sell freshly baked goods at www.KarmaBaker.com and deliver them via FedEx to our customers in all 50 states (with Canada on the horizon). We bake fresh-to-order and ship our desserts frozen. Right now, we’re able to bake and ship all orders within 36 hours after an order is placed. Transit times are between 1-3 days. 





why invest


We love baking and we believe in being amazing

We believe that the quality and dedication that goes into making our products is what sets us apart from other bakeries. With investment we plan to:


  • Open 3 more satellite bakeries in major U.S. cities that are centrally located with high demand for vegan desserts (i.e. New York, Chicago, and Austin) to reduce delivery costs and transit times while increasing visibility and local to-go sales
  • Expand online presence and delivery to Canada and Mexico
  • Grow to over 1 million customers served 


Help us maintain a happy society by pioneering a healthy and sustainable dessert delivery service. We believe this is where the future of food is headed!

New Rates with FEDEX begin May 1 2022

20 days ago

With our campaign in the very early stages, we are excited to announce that we have already secured VERY LOW FEDEX 2-DAY SHIPPING rates! This has a been an in-house goal for sometime. We want to be able to lower our shipping costs every where possible.  

Beginning May 1, we will utilize this quick ship 2-day method on all non-cake items. Before now, USPS was cheaper but, extended transit times by up to 4 days longer to the East Coast. 

Getting the best treats to our customers as quickly and inexpensively as possible, is paramount to our growth and ultimate success.
