SIMPLE KITCHEN BEGINNINGS

More than 15 years ago, a handful of women began creating jar mixes as a way for their children to raise funds for a school trip to France.  They soon realized that they were not alone in their search for simple, useful ideas for fundraising without feeling guilty about peddaling them to family and friends.  When the neighbours started asking where these great little mixes were available to purchase once the fundraiser was over, she realized that a dream of helping other groups with their ideas could become a reality and so, The Mixing Spoon was born.

MEET STACEY

Stacey Doney Owner The Mixing Spoon

Like many women making that life change from motherhood and career to retirement, Stacey Doney desired a project that made sense for her and her family.

 

The Doney's were no strangers to The Mixing Spoon products. Doney's daughter Ella’s competition dance team used the fundraiser for several years.   As a middle school turned high school science teacher, Stacey found the products delicious and easy to keep on hand during the busy competition season.  

 

When Stacey retired from teaching, it didn’t take long for her entrepreneurial instincts to kick in and when The Mixing Spoon business opportunity knocked -- Stacey answered.  She and her handy husband, Brett automated the packaging and distribution process and are steadily creating systems for The Mixing Spoon to run more efficiently.  Now working on a more environmentally friendly package and a new brand identity, Stacey has really breathed new life into this already established business.

 

With Opportunity Comes Responsibility.

 The Mixing Spoon has not only provided an entrepreneurial outlet for Stacey but work placement for her neurodivergent son, Jack.  While contributing to the family business, Jack is able to learn important life skills, participate in meaningful employment and perform real work for real pay.
