J. Crawford Fine Desserts is a new gluten and dairy-free virtual bakery based in Burlington that has their sights set much higher than just making some really good cupcakes!

Think flavour not calories

In spite of the global pandemic, J. Crawford officially launched in February of this year. Where others saw an end to the world they saw an opportunity.

As in all major world crises, amid the chaos there were lessons to be learned. Ready or not, the pandemic pushed our society many years ahead of where it was. From telemedicine to improving air quality, it seems like shutting down our old habits was the much-needed intervention the world needed. J. Crawford believes that there is a middle ground on which we can incorporate all of the lessons we’ve learned and remain social. In fact, they’re trying to give you even more time with your loved ones on a regular basis.

Let’s cut to the chase – these people will make the cake you want from scratch and deliver it to your door if that is what you want.

From their kitchen to your door – faster than you can cool the wine.

That’s what a virtual bakery is all about – it is entirely online. Owner and Founder, Mr. Rhys Poirier, believes that the virtual realm will elevate the customer experience.

– Being able to access their ordering platform whenever and wherever a craving hits you means that you save time running errands and waiting in line. If you’d like to have it delivered, you can have it affordably delivered to you immediately. If you’d like to pick up some treats on your way home from work, you can do that too!

– Keeping the products out of a display case and made on-demand saves retail food waste.

They are being recognized. As of October 18th 2021, J. Crawford Fine Desserts sits up at the #1 spot for Non-US Americas and #13 on the Global Leaderboard. Entrepreneurs earn their ranks from both peer voting and analyses from renowned economists, mathematicians, CEOs, and angel investors.
