Kimberley’s Kitchen to build new facility

Kimberley’s Kitchen is expanding in popularity and now her kitchen will be expanding with her.

Kimberley’s Kitchen is expanding in popularity and now her kitchen will be expanding with her.

Through a Kickstarter campaign, Telkwa’s Kimberley Mulla has raised just over $6,000  to build a kitchen in her basement to help produce hand-crafted artisan confections, such as brittle and gourmet marshmallows.

“I’m extremely grateful for the support from local fans who really did a wonderful job of sharing the project on Facebook and chatting with me about it at the market,” said Mulla.

“I genuinely appreciate the community’s support for the project and look forward to sharing the finished results.”

Currently, Mulla produces numerous flavours of marshmallows including chai, vanilla bean, peppermint, strawberry and pumpkin spice from a rented kitchen in the village.

Now she’ll be able to make them whenever she wants from a certified commercial kitchen in the comfort of her own home.

Pledges, which came locally and from as far away as Germany, will be used to purchase appliances and furnishings, and pay for trades people to renovate the space for the kitchen.

Mulla started the campaign in mid-November. Fundraising efforts started off slow, but really picked up in December.

With only three days to go before the campaign closed on Sunday, the project was roughly half funded.

In less than 24 hours, mostly through social media, Mulla was able to raise close to $1,000.

“I was just actively sharing my story on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, not only letting people know about the project, but also sharing with people why I do what I do,” said Mulla.

The next phase includes doling out rewards to her backers.

“I’ll be busy making marshmallows for people,” she laughed.

Construction is set to begin in the new year.
