Wholesale vegan bakery Skull & Cakebones wants to make it easier for fans to find its baked goods by opening a storefront. To do just that, co-owners Yauss Berenji and Sascha Biesi launched a Kickstarter this month to raise $37,000 by the end of the year.

Once the campaign is completed, Berenji and Biesi will find a location and build the shop within a shopping container. Along with the regular menu, the new shop will focus on small batch seasonal items. The goal is to open by next summer. Backer rewards include sweets, of course.

The nearly three-year-old bakery is known for teaming up with with local businesses, like tea biscuits made with Revolution Spirits’ gin, NadaMoo ice cream floats, and cakes made with Johnson’s Backyard Garden vegetables. Cupcakes, cakes, and puff pastries are currently sold in retail shops like Whole Foods, Central Market, and Royal Blue Grocery. Skull & Cakebones also pops up for events and festivals, like ACL.
