I've tasted these coffee cakes and they're every bit as good as they look - sweet and scrumptious. Too good - one slice leads to another!

CoffeeCakes.com Celebrates 15 Years of Internet Retail Success

CASTLE ROCK, Colo., Feb. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- This year marks the 15th anniversary of Colorado-based CoffeeCakes.com, one of the first Internet retailers to offer high-quality gourmet gift items online. To celebrate its fifteen year milestone, CoffeeCakes.com will offer select anniversary-priced coffeecakes for $15 throughout the remainder of 2010 as well as free shipping on any order within Colorado.

In 1995, CoffeeCakes.com started as an Internet cafe (the first of its kind in Colorado). Realizing that the Internet offered incredible opportunities in the marketplace, Sherry Comes, the company's founder, decided to move her business exclusively online. Applying her many years of IT consulting expertise to her new entrepreneurial venture, Comes has grown her online store into the profitable entity it is today.

In the fifteen years since the company's inception, Comes has experienced the usual challenges of running a small business while maintaining a full-time career. Over the years, the company has revamped its website for Search Engine Optimization, taken the functions of fulfillment, inventory and warehousing in-house, and streamlined its order management, inventory control, and shipping processes.

Since the early years, CoffeeCakes.com has greatly expanded its product line (which initially centered on coffeecakes) to include travel mugs, teapots, and items such as coffee presses and tea samplers. "In the fifteen years since I founded the company, I have seen a huge change in customer shopping patterns," Comes said. "My customers are super-savvy Internet shoppers. They expect high-touch customer service and a broad and appealing range of products."

For Valentine's Day, the company is introducing its new line of "Chocolate Surprise Squares" and "Chocolate Bliss Gourmet" gift baskets that can be shipped anywhere within the US and Canada.

The company plans to launch a sister web site sometime in 2010 that will focus on an even wider range of gift items spanning children's wear to home decor.

To place an order, visit www.CoffeeCakes.com or call 1-800-830-2696.

CoffeeCakes.com's President Receives
"Outstanding Women in Business Award”

DENVER, Aug. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Sherry Comes, President and Founder of CoffeeCakes.com, an Internet retailer of high-end baked goods and gifts, has received the "Outstanding Women in Business" award from The Denver Business Journal and the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO). The winners were announced at an awards banquet held at the Denver Marriott City Center Hotel on August 7.

This year's Outstanding Women in Business award recognized twelve exceptional Denver business women who have made significant contributions to both local business and the community. The winners were chosen based on their demonstration of innovation, entrepreneurship, professional accomplishment, and community leadership.

"I am honored and thankful to have been selected for this award," Comes said. "My personal definition of success goes beyond business models and profits -- it's measured by what I have done to encourage others and to help in my community."

When reviewing Sherry's considerable achievements, consideration was made to the fact that she is not only the President and Founder of CoffeeCakes.com, but is also a full-time executive for the top Fortune 500 IT company. At the top Fortune 500 IT company, Sherry has earned the rarely attained title of "Distinguished Engineer." At CoffeeCakes.com, customers always come first, and the company has consistently won a "Five Star Top Service Rating" since 1995.

CoffeeCakes.com donates a portion of its proceeds to finding a cure for a potentially life-threatening but little-known genetic disorder called Neurofibromatosis (NF). CoffeeCakes.com formed an alliance with NF Inc. (an organization committed to supporting those affected by NF) and actress Gillian Anderson (Agent Scully, The X-Files), a tireless spokesperson for the disease, to facilitate the donation of company profits. CoffeeCakes.com also supports the Children's Tumor Foundation, another organization associated with NF.

Sherry became active in NF advocacy when her adopted son Sebastian was diagnosed with the disease in 2005. Sherry adopted Sebastian from Guatemala, rescuing him from below primitive living conditions, already aware that he probably carried the NF1 gene.

As well as its extensive support of NF, CoffeeCakes.com supports local charities and fund-raisers including the "Empty Bowl" which supports victims of domestic violence, cancer research, and heart disease prevention.

Sherry Comes received her award in the Jean Yancy Small Business Award category. <0> To make a donation to NF Inc., visit http://www.nfinc.org.

CoffeeCakes.com Unveils Redesigned Website
New Design Yields Immediate Results of Almost 70% Increase in Traffic for Internet Baked Goods and Gifts Retailer

Castle Rock, CO – October 14, 2008 – CoffeeCakes.com, a gourmet baked goods and specialty gifts Internet retailer, today announced that its newly designed website has successfully completed beta testing and will become the company’s official web site and online store.

The new website was designed by Colorado Web Solutions, a website design and search engine marketing services provider. In the first few days of testing the new design, traffic to CoffeeCakes.com’s site increased by approximately 70% - largely attributable to the site’s enhanced search engine optimization capabilities. Also, the company has seen a sharp increase in catalog requests (up 2,500%) over this time last year. This is most likely due to the fact that every page of the website now offers a “request for catalog” option.

In today’s economy, when marketing dollars are at a premium, companies may be reluctant to commit the necessary capital to redesigning their websites for Search Engine Marketing (SEM). However, it has been determined that 85% of all visits to websites originate through major search engine and shopping engine searches. It has also been determined that 62% of search engine users click on the links that are listed on the first page of their search engine results. Most SEM experts agree that companies should do their utmost to be ranked within the top 10 listings of a search engine result.

The rising importance of SEM is validated by the fact that the North American SEM industry grew from $9.4 billion in 2006 to $12.2 billion in 2007 according to the Search Engine Marketing Professional Organization (SEMPO).

“Experts tell us that we should reevaluate our websites every two years,” said Sherry Comes, President and Founder of CoffeeCakes.com. “At CoffeeCakes.com, we know we have a great product and exceptional customer service, but that’s all meaningless if our customers and prospective customers never find our site or find it difficult to use."

Matt Sampson, CEO of Colorado Web Solutions, has a proven track record in creating website designs that result in client success. “We don’t just design websites, we design businesses,” says Sampson. Initially, Sampson projected that CoffeeCakes.com would see at least a 25% increase in sales over the next year because of the new design. His projection has proven to be conservative. CoffeeCakes.com has actually realized an increase in revenue of 65% over this time last year – partly attributable to the web redesign- but also attributable to a concerted marketing push that includes email marketing, PR and creative call center programs.

CoffeeCakes.com will also work with Colorado Web Solutions to launch a second online store called MyBlueDaisy.com in 2009.

Internet Retailer

A 70% traffic spike is the icing on CoffeeCakes.com’s redesign

CoffeeCakes.com, a gourmet baked goods and specialty gifts Internet retailer, reports that traffic to its redesigned web site increased by approximately 70% in the first few days of testing the new design. The e-retailer mainly attributes the gain to the site’s enhanced search engine optimization capabilities.

The company also noted a 2,500% increase in catalog requests compared with this time last year, which it says stems from placing a Request for Catalog option on every page of the e-commerce site. The new CoffeeCakes.com emerged from beta testing this week.

“Experts tell us that we should re-evaluate our web sites every two years,” says Sherry Comes, president and founder of CoffeeCakes.com. “At CoffeeCakes.com, we know we have a great product and exceptional customer service, but that’s all meaningless if our customers and prospective customers never find our site or find it difficult to use.”

The web site was designed by Colorado Web Solutions, a site design and search engine marketing services provider. The vendor originally projected that CoffeeCakes.com would see at least a 25% increase in sales because of the new design. The e-retailer, however, already reports a 65% revenue increase compared with this time last year, thanks to the redesign and a marketing push that includes new e-mail marketing, public relations and call center programs.

CoffeeCakes.com will also work with Colorado Web Solutions to launch in 2009 a second online store called MyBlueDaisy.com, which will carry personal and home gift items. CoffeeCakes.com was founded in 1995 and its product line includes coffee, cheese, whiskey and rum cakes, and travel mugs.

CoffeeCakes.com Has Recycling “in the Bag”
Gourmet Gift & Food Retailer Changes to “Green” Packaging

Castle Rock, CO – May 14, 2008 – CoffeeCakes.com, an Internet gift & baked goods retailer, has announced that it will replace its optional kraft paper gift wrap with a jute gift bag that is completely reusable, functional, and eco-friendly. This change is precipitated by the company’s concern to help the environment and become “greener”.

Sherry Comes, president of CoffeeCakes.com, said, “We believe that every company has an obligation to lessen the waste that it produces. We are confident that our customers will support us in our decision to transition to environmentally-friendly packaging.” Last month, at the Colorado Women’s Expo, the company tested public reaction to its new bags by selling the bags at their booth. The bags proved to be almost as popular as the company’s famous coffeecakes. As a result of the overwhelmingly positive feedback, CoffeeCakes.com has made the bag available for purchase by itself - or as an optional gift bag to replace traditional gift wrap. The bag is currently being offered at the introductory price of $7.95 and can be purchased at www.coffeecakes.com.

Mitzi Valdez, a long time CoffeeCakes.com customer, had this to say about the bag, “The CoffeeCakes.com jute bag is just wonderful. As well as being attractive, it’s roomy and functional. I like that I can carry it on my shoulder when my hands are occupied.” The sturdy CoffeeCakes.com bag is lined for water resistance and features cane handles and a canvas shoulder-length strap. The bag’s dimensions are (16” x 7” x 18”).

About CoffeeCakes.com CoffeeCakes.com is a privately-held company that markets specialty food and gourmet gift items exclusively on the Internet. Founded in 1995, the company is headquartered in Castle Rock, Colorado. CoffeeCakes.com’s product line includes coffeecakes, cheesecakes, whiskey cakes, rum cakes, travel mugs and more. CoffeeCakes.com donates a portion of its profits to finding a cure for Neurofibromatosis (NF) and supporting families affected by the disease. The company also supports cancer research, local fund-raisers, and non-profit organizations, and seeks to promote awareness among women of the dangers of heart disease.
