We’re Launching a Kickstarter Campaign
We are extremely excited to announce that we will be launching a 30-day crowdfunding campaign August 30th, 2016 on Kickstarter.com. Kickstarter helps creators find the resources and support they need to make their ideas a reality. To date, over 100,000 projects have come to life with the support of over 10 million people, from every continent on earth. Our Kickstarter backers will be rewarded with various limited edition or one of a kind items.
Your generous contribution and support will help us build the ultimate culinary platform & marketplace. Upon our official launch, you’ll be able to sign up at no cost and shop the finest specialty food & beverage, gifts, kitchen and home accessories from around the world. You’ll also be able to attend events, explore destinations and book the perfect adventure, as well as discover outstanding recipes, tips, guides and much more. Founded in 2014 and based in the San Francisco Bay Area, Hudson Daniel is made up of a team of passionate curators whose goal is to connect the world, one culinary experience at a time.
Our mission is simple: to deliver unique and exciting food & beverage experiences to every home, business and palette.
HD CONNECTS YOU TO THE WORLD OF UNIQUE AND EXCITING FOOD & BEVERAGE EXPERIENCES.
Shop our Marketplace. The marketplace will feature: wine, spirits, beer, meat, cheese, chocolate, coffee, tea, confections, honey, oils, spreads, condiments, sauces, vinegars, salts, spices, seasonings, baking ingredients, snacks, cookware, cutlery, dinnerware, appliances, cookbooks and much more.
Help Artisan Vendors Thrive. We provide artisan vendors tools to grow with us, so they can focus on making remarkable goods and telling their story. You can interact with our partners, purchase their incredible products and be educated on the craft that goes into everything they do with recipes, tips and guides.
Every Day is an Event. While the best events and destinations are currently scattered all over the web, we will bring them together in one place. Find a nearby festival, cooking class, food truck, brewery, distillery, winery, food hall & market; book tastings, tours and culinary expeditions.
Subscribe. Subscribe to the SAVOR kit and sample products we know you’ll love shipped monthly, featuring exceptional artisan vendors. Subscribe to the CRAFTED kit and receive a box of delicious, beautifully packaged full-size items & accessories inspired by a different theme every month.
Give Back. We strive to deliver experiences that celebrate life and inspire exploration, all while giving back to those who are less fortunate. Upon Hudson Daniel’s official launch, we will donate a percentage of all sales to assist those in need, such as helping to end hunger around the world through our charitable foundation.
POWERED BY TECHNOLOGY. DRIVEN BY HOSPITALITY. CRAFTED WITH CARE.
We are not new to startups. We have succeeded. We have failed. For many years, we laid out a vision for Hudson Daniel and while the concept, like a great book, was taken on and off the shelf multiple times, we have been developing key parts, like the platform design, product designs, and software — with a team of dedicated experts and seasoned business professionals.
Our model has evolved considerably to where it is today. We have invested a significant amount of time and money into market research, and most importantly, getting to know who our customers are in order to better serve them when we officially launch. Our largest risks are keeping up with demand and continuing to add outstanding vendors to the marketplace, while maintaining a platform with all the robust features we are looking to deliver. However, we believe our tremendous staff and partners are up for the challenge.
CONNECTING THE WORLD, ONE CULINARY EXPERIENCE AT A TIME.
Your support will help us add critical resources, hire additional employees and help offset the costs of developing and implementing technology. We have lined up packaging and logistic partners, and our team is curating the finest in artisan food, beverage and homeware accessories by actively seeking relationships with vendors who we believe are worthy of the Hudson Daniel seal of approval. By supporting fine artisan vendors, providing incredible resources, along with simple and sophisticated offerings, unique ingredients and curated delicacies, we have the ability to touch your life through our demonstration of hospitality.
Hudson Daniel is more than just a place to discover specialty food & beverage, accessories, festivals and recipes. It is an experience. Our team is on a quest to take the simple moments in life and make them remarkable. We are following our passion and could not be more excited to share our journey with you. Together we can make this dream a reality. Together we can make every day an event.
UPDATE: We may not have hit our goal on Kickstarter but we really appreciate the support and are still very much moving forward with the development of our platform & marketplace.
