This is It!



Jenny and I didn't set out to change an industry, we just wanted a hot loaf of tasty bread and community. When it comes to baked goods, if you are lucky, you have a local artisan baker in town, but most people are picking up bread at the grocery store.


IZOLA is more than about our single location. We are on a mission to change the way America thinks about Croissants and Sourdough Bread, all served with genuine hospitality.


How? We are taking existing automation equipment and applying our handmade methods to create artisanal products at scale.


We've already been fired by a handful of manufacturing companies who say it's not possible to increase our quality while using their equipment. So we partnered with two manufacturers who believed, and successfully replicated our handmade croissants and sourdough with their equipment, simply by using their equipment in unconventional ways.


Not only will automating allow us to finally meet our natural demand (instead of constantly selling out because we just can't make it fast enough), but we'll be able to pay our team more by increasing their hourly output.


Change is an expensive endeavor. We have already raised almost $1.5M from over 500 investors, but designing and building a zero-emission automated factory in an underserved community is a complicated, capital-intensive, challenging project. We will be ready to begin construction in about 6 months with a total project budget of $7.5M. We’ve raised about 65% of the capital through a mix of debt and equity investment from our customers.


We are on the home stretch for this round - our equity raise ends this Thursday, February 29th. Will you join us today on this journey and become an IZOLA owner?

If you have questions, would like to hear more about our 5 year growth plan, and more, join us on Google Meet for our final investor call - Wednesday February 28th at 7p PST. We welcome any and all conversations and questions.


And don't forget - investors will receive special access to our grand re-opening! Come join us for an exclusive and private event before we officially open to the public.

*Please only invest an amount you would feel comfortable losing. Investing in private businesses involves risk. Though potential returns are designed to reflect that risk, there is a possibility that you will lose your entire investment.




We so VERY much wanted to be able to provide you with more concrete reopening updates before the close of our equity raise, but unfortunately, it's not in the cards for us today.


I've been working day and night with our team on some big updates about our renovation, but much of it has become a waiting game as we await word from various stakeholders. You can blame Jenny for holding me back from announcing anything until our i's are dotted and our t's are crossed! 🤣


So, THANK YOU for hanging in there with us...I do think it will be worth the wait! Stay tuned...
