Hello all! I'm trying to find the ideal places to get supplies for when I start my business. I'm trying to price things out for my business plan. I'm planning on getting boxes from brp boxshop. Are there any better, cheaper places? I think the free shipping there makes them the best deal. I figured it would work the same for cake circles/boards, but I find the Webstaurant Store online and their prices are cheaper. Has anyone ordered from this site before? Is it good or not? Is there a better place to get cake boards? I would sooooo appreciate any ideas! This business plan is A LOT of research! Thanks!
I get mine from brpboxes.com I have had great service with them so I haven't really tried any where else.
It depends on your production volume. I am small. I LOVE brpboxshop (free shipping) but only order the 10 packs. I have just ordered from Bake-a-box. I was able to get sets of 25 boxes cheaper than the 10 packs, even paying shipping. The boxes are much sturdier than the ones I was getting from brpbox.
As for cake drums and boards, the best deal I have found are at fondant source, but their shipping can be steep if you are not in the southeast. Bake-a-box also has boards, but they do not seem to have drums.
This might help with your business plan research... it's a list of suppliers:
(have fun with your online window shopping!)
Wow! Thanks for the huge list CWR41!! That will keep me busy!
brenda549- Yes, I do need to consider production volume. I guess I don't need to order 500 8" cake boards at a time....even if they are cheaper It's just so tempting!
Reyna and SnLSweetEscapes- brpboxshop is great. I love the free shipping! It's hard to find anyone cheaper when you factor that in. I did find cheaper cake boards elsewhere though...
I really like BRPBoxshop too.
