    Curious to see how things are going? Any plans to get shipping in place before the upcoming holidays? Eric's Cheesecakes the new Collin Street Bakery? FYI Cheesecake is the only food that keeps me from being 100% vegan. Would love to order some soon!

    Oh how it were possible on a regular and it is feverously being worked on. However it just not possible as of yet. Still small and not able to make room for all the necessities to make that happen. Will definitely keep you updated and informed once it happens.
    Thanks for asking.

    Hello Everyone,
    Thanks for asking and wanting to keep updated. At the moment, all l am allowed to say is that "Im working on getting into a chain that you all know". Since this is a public forum, it best that l not reveal that information. However, once things are etched in stone, l will be happy to announce it. Its just taking time and red tape.
    Thanks again for all your interest in me.

    There was a method to the madness .If you look at Kaffee Werks it is on purpose. But l need to be more realistic when advertising.
    Thanks for the heads up.

    Hey Ericito

    great story. A lot of people here has already helped you (even by asking how you are doing). I have some questions though.

    I come from a country where you need to deal with a lot of bureaucracy, often going into grey area.

    Have you consulted a lawyer (good lawyer)? I have a couple of idea, but they may fall under 'grey' area here...

    Imagine James Earl Jones. You could say he is the biggest failure in history of movies. Instead of going for royalties for his Darth Vader voice, he took a lump sum. Considering his situation then, and the forecast for the movie... he made the best decision. And is he the biggest failure?What if the movie flopped and was forgotten after 5 mins... Nobody has a crystal bowl... It's easy to be Captain Hindsight ;)

    I had to reply :) My former boss, net worth over 100M, used to say "Expreso" instead of espresso. He was busy (still is) making 100s M $... didn't have time to learn the correct pronunciation.

    Second, you can actually invent something by mistake, by making a mistake :D

    Good Afternoon,
    I want to thank you Everyman and Member for your informative support.
    I have learned so much from so many over the past 2 years. It has been very helpful.
    However, one thing that l have also learned that no matter how hoard your try, you can not beat the system, even though you may be 100% correct and right....a No means No. For reasons that this is a very public forum, I will not go into details. Lawyers? LOL. Wont even go there.

    Also a very well known important factor is "You need money to make money"....No matter how amazing a product or food is. It can be the best on the planet. No Capital...No Future. That really is the bottom line for everything.
    Many will read this and say...There he goes with the "I's" again. But reality is reality.

    So with that being said.....The dream is not over. But the wake up call is real.
    I wont stop what l do, but l will not keep fighting a war game...where no one wins.

    So again....I thank all for everything.

    That's not reality, but that's the reality you experienced.

    Sorry to hear that your experience has turned into an absolute one-size-fits-all limiting belief.

    Money definitely makes anything easier and a lack of it makes it harder. But it isn't the end-all, be-all.

    Thank You Sir,
    Trust me, yes lack of money makes it harder, but l will always believe that l have an amazing product. Whether or not the masses ever get to find out, will always be determined. Despite all the negatives the are being confronted, giving up is not an option. Even though it was not implied. I know and will always believe that one day, the right person and the right circumstances will find out and be overwhelmed. However, until then....one day at a time.
    Again Thank You

    @Ericito I’m disappointed reading this. And I don’t think you’ll get much sympathy from those of us who are still pushing hard to pursue their goals. I know you said there are extenuating circumstances... but blaming lack of money is not a good enough excuses.

    I ran out of money. So I started an investment round. Have you?

    As a footnote, I really want this business to succeed, because I see you’re passionate about it. But you’ve had so many self doubts...
