Shop Small, Invest Big + Opportunity Fund Holiday Gift Guide

2014 Holiday Gift Guide

Looking for the perfect gift this holiday season? How about delicious treats from 'Opportunity Funded’ business Oui Oui! Macaron? Your friends and family will be delighted with these colorful, crunchy cookies.

Oui Oui! Macaron is the creation of pastry chef Cathleen Li. "A perfect macaron should have a slight chewiness and a perfect crunch with each bite, fresh enough where the filling is absorbed into the shell without making it soggy,” says Cathleen.

At Opportunity Fund, we know that successful entrepreneurs need more than a great idea and drive to succeed. Entrepreneurs need access to quality financial resources to make their dreams a reality. Cathleen needed financing to expand her business and open a storefront in San Francisco. Opportunity Fund gave her a $25,000 loan to help her achieve her entrepreneurial goals.
 
Oui Oui! Macaron is currently building a permanent store in the Serramonte Mall. In the meantime, the popular treats can be found at a pop-up shop located within Kung Fu Tacos (another 'Opportunity Funded' business!), which is next to the Starbucks in the Serramonte Mall. Or you can order by email at ouiouimacaron@gmail.com
