Does anyone know what happened with this? The page is up to order cheese but there have been no kickstart updates or any social media updates in a while.

The whole thing is pretty sad, but she is handling it very poorly. Based on Facebook comments it looks like even people who have placed recent online orders aren't receiving their cheese and no communication from customer service. I loved what I tried from them and had really wanted them to succeed.

A few weeks ago, a ppker referenced them. From what I was able to gather, they never sent any of the KS backers anything although last promise to send something was March. Then told the KS people that they needed the money from the KS to sell the cheese to stores/restaurants? And then they stopped selling completely.

I do think it is all very sad. Even without sending the KS backers their products, it seems like they were having financial trouble.

This is really vague, but it was posted on the Facebook page in May:

Quote:
Over the course of the last few months, we have experienced both amazing growth and serious challenges.

I wish it were not the case, but we did not handle every challenge properly and found ourselves behind in production and customer service.
As a result, some of our customers experienced unacceptable wait times and poor communication.
We apologize. We are working toward significant changes with our order and customer services processes. We take great pride in the quality of our products and look forward to rebuilding our service reputation.

We would like to thank our customers and encourage you to contact us with any questions, suggestions or concerns.

Their kickstarter page doesn't look hopeful.

I'm a backer. The last time she posted an update was on May 9 (same date as the last FB post), where she said she had been going through a divorce since December and as of May was "facing having to disolve the company (or possibly lose it)." At that time she still planned to (slowly) fulfill all her orders (including the KS rewards) but who knows when and if that will actually happen.

Daphne posted a new update to Kickstarter today, which is publicly viewable to anyone so I assume it's okay to share it here.

Quote:
Door 86 as a business is being shelved for a while. I need to sort out both business and personal issues.

On the advice of my attorney, I will work toward fulfilling rewards/refunds, as that is the most ethical thing to pursue at this point. ( I have already been in touch with a few of you).

I will no longer respond to attacks, insults, or insinuations that a few people have made.

I am not a charlatan, not a ‘scam artist’.

I started a business with the best of intentions, and as some of you may or may not know, my life came undone. The unraveling has not been a positive experience and I am dealing with that fall-out as well.

Things are just not moving at the rate I would like for them to, but nevertheless, they are moving.

Please know that I am not walking away from what I feel is an obligation to my backers. I am grateful, and ALL OF THE $$ was used for our business, and all equipment, rent, insurance, and supplies.

I simply did not ask for enough funds, and I didn’t think of things like building in initial funding for paying myself or being able to hire employees, etc. that would have made life a bit easier in this process. That took a heavy toll—

I will be in touch as necessary, but this is where it all stands at this point, and I really do apologize.


The Facebook page is gone, which is good since she was getting some pretty nasty comments on there. The website & order page is still up, but everything is "out of stock."
