Solutiontopia was hired in July 2017 to help the founder of The Pagel to increase production efficiencies and build out a financial business plan and go to market strategy for the brand. The Pagel is a high-end Paleo, gluten free, clean label bagel and bread alternative sold as a frozen baked goods item.
Working closely with The Pagel team, Solutiontopia found that a 3PM (third party manufacturer) was the optimal way to scale production and embarked on a nation wide co-packer search. After vetting co-packers and running test trials, a co-packer was selected with production scheduled for Q1 2018. Solutiontopia determined that an e-commerce business with a focus on a subscription model for the growing Paleo market was ideal, and oversaw the selection and onboarding of a third-party web-based solution. Additionally, Solutiontopia was brought on as an equity Advisor to the company and developed a corporate investor Pitch Deck and began fundraising.
