Hey Friends! So it's been one heck of a ride the past few months!
After the fire, we had to reevaluate everything. We had to look at every facet of KLADO, from how we rebuild to what's next. Over the past several months we endured a ton of craziness; from having someone loot our fire infested unit, seeing them trying to sell our burnt equipment on Facebook marketplace to erroneously getting served papers by our former building owner (movie style type served. You know, a strong knock on the door, strange man hands a stack of lawsuit papers and says, "you've been served.") Nothing has been easy since the fire, but we continue to forge ahead.
From the start, I wanted to create a company that stood for something. That meant something. That gives back and thanks to all of you, I believe we have. Now, it's time for us to embark on a slightly different journey. As KLADO continues to grow and evolve, we'll be shifting from retail to focusing on corporate and local partnerships, special events (think weddings, showers, etc.) and expanding our e-commerce reach (hello, Europe and beyond!).
We'll still be creating the same brigadeiros you've come to enjoy and we'll be shipping them near and far. We're also working on a new product line that we'll be unveiling shortly (queue suspenseful music).
To our Jersey City friends, we're relocating across the street to 135 Erie St. Once we're settled into our new space, we'll have limited retail and we'll share dates via social media. So, if you're not following us on social, now is an awesome time to do so @casaklado. If you're in the area, you'll also be able to pick-up a box (or several) of brigadeiros from some awesome local businesses that we've partnered with.
Yes, KLADO may look a little different, but we're still committed to creating the most kicka$$ desserts all while doing good!
This is just the beginning of KLADO's new journey and thank you for helping us become the dessert company that plants trees!
