Rob Salvino

Cereal Box Bakery announced the abrupt cancellation this afternoon of the drone delivery service that was launched earlier in the day. Rob Salvino, founder of Cereal Box Bakery stated, "We had solved all of the technical and regulatory hurdles. We were looking forward to bringing our delightful baked goods to your doorstep with drone delivery, but we weren't thinking of the chickens." Problems first began as the first test drone headed east on 98th St. Soon a cacophony of chickens were crowing up and down the street.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Cereal Box Bakery announces launch of drone delivery service

Seattle, WA. Cereal Box Bakery, a new home delivery bakery serving north Seattle, will begin drone delivery service on April 4, 2016.

They’re tired of me saying, “Here try this.” So now it’s your turn. “Here try this.” The cereal is graham cracker style with cacao nibs for flavor and a jolt of anti-oxidants.

We’re already up to the third official week of Cereal Box Bakery! I am fully moved in, so now I can devote more attention to other parts of the business. I finalized my website and it is open for subscribers. Please check it out and subscribe if you plan to do so. The way I set up the subscriptions was to make a basic box that should accommodate a family of two pretty well. You can add more to your subscription if the basic box doesn’t fit your family or your appetite. Starting next week I plan to offer weekly...
