I wonder what my doppelgänger looks like…no? not following? I’m a superhero nerd, just another one of my qualities that I am sure you know by now.
But just in case you’ve called, emailed or messaged us, I am very much alive. But then again, it is Sunday. I am currently sitting here with my coffee, endless order forms and ideas running through my head pretty much as fast as I can make them. That’s what Sunday’s look like around JCC. We’ve been in business for over 6 years now, we’re in a pretty good groove of what works best for us, it’s a nice change from the crazy beginnings of starting a business. If you’ve started a business, you know that crazy time as much as I do, past and present…if you haven’t, I’m here today to fill you in a bit.
Sometimes I am a very hard person to get a hold of, and I know that. Once my week starts in the bakery, I can’t get to the computer to answer emails or to the phone to answer phone calls mainly because I’m working on someone else’s order. One of my good friends puts it perfectly, “The kitchen is a very busy place where we are always working on something new and exciting. Just like your cake will be our number one priority the week of your event, someone’s cake is our number one priority right now.” It’s pretty much the way to put it perfectly.
Normally paperwork/emails/phone calls are done on Sundays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Once Wednesday gets here, with the exception of emergencies (and yes there are actually cake emergencies 😉 ) I am pretty much off the grid other than social media postings. I’ve had to make some adjustments to scheduling over the past couple of years to accommodate our growing business, and this one works best. With this being said, please plan ahead as much as you can, especially during the summer and long weekends.
In our earlier years, we had no problem accommodating short notice orders. Now, it doesn’t seem to be the case. I’m not saying don’t try, please do, we still want to hear from you. But please remember that our orders take time, hours and hours go into everything we do around here. time is gold.
With all of that being said, I just wanted to give you guys a little look into what goes on around here. I don’t want you guys to think I’m ignoring you, when in fact it is the exact opposite. Every comment, post, share or like that I see on social media just makes me love what I do even more. Be sure to follow us on facebook and instagram for all of our most recent updates. Here are a few of my recent favourites.
We’ve done a lot already this year, and even bigger and better things are to come. You just wait. xo J
