A Word From Gio Andollo
My name is Gio Andollo and I’m a creative entrepreneur, based in New York City. And now my very cool wife, D’Lolly Lopez-Andollo, is poised to become the same! She has a HUGE opportunity to supply wholesale baked goods, made in our home kitchen with lots of love, to a neighborhood coffee shop!
D’Lolly graduated from culinary school in 2010 and has been working toward this moment, the opportunity to own and operate her very own business, ever since. We actually met when I was washing dishes at another neighborhood coffee shop and she was hired on as their head baker. With her encouragement, I left that job to advance my own career and she later left to focus on her own business.
Now we’re both strapping on our aprons again, to make D’Lolly’s dream a reality.
We’ve talked quite a bit about what our needs will be but we’ve conveniently steered away from the simple fact that we don’t have the capital to start her business. As her business administrator, it’s my job to worry about that… Oh, and did I mention that I’ll be her dishwasher, bookkeeper, grocery-shopper, and social media guru as well? Indeed, I’m committed to D’Lolly and her business and I know that with your help to secure the startup capital, she will manage a successful, sustainable, and (most importantly) delicious baking business in Washington Heights and Inwood, NYC!
