BURLINGTON — Shiloh’s Five Loaves, a gluten-free wholesaler bakery based out of Burlington has raised $525,000 in equity funding from 5 investors according to the SEC. The filing also discloses that the company is seeking another $975,000, aiming for a total of $1.5 million.
The company, which sells under the name Simple Kneads, was started in 2014 after CEO Tristaun LeClaire’s son, Shiloh, developed an allergy to gluten. Since then, the company has completed 4 rounds of fundraising, raising a total of just over $1 million since 2014, all in equity. Most recently it raised more than $365,000 in 2019.
Shiloh’s offers four flavors of gluten-free bread: Sourdough, Quinoa Power Grains, Pumperknikel, and Cinnamon Raisin. Breads are available in numerous North Carolina locations, including Lowes and Whole Foods, and can also be ordered online.
