What is the Baking Notification Project?
The Baking Notification Project is an indie tech startup that connects home bakers with their neighbors to share extra baked goods. We’re based in Nashville, and we’re working with bakers throughout the U.S. to test our concept and tech. The tech is a web-based product that allows bakers to send automated text messages to subscribers when they have extra baked goods to share. Our goal is to make the process of sharing offers and managing claims less onerous for bakers by providing structure and tech built for the job.
Note: The Baking Notification Project does not support direct sale of individual baked goods between baker and consumer. All baked goods shared through the Baking Notification Project are offered at no additional cost to subscribers. To learn more about how the Baking Notification Project works, see our Frequently Asked Questions or visit us on Instagram.
All projects begin with a two-week introductory period called Gather that allows bakers to recruit their first three subscribers before deciding to activate. Projects in Gather appear in our Find a Baker directory and can accept subscribers but cannot send out offers until fully activated.
