A quest to provide a vegan nacho bar complete with toppings, hot dogs, corn dogs and tamales to those who love good fast food!
Never Felt Better Vegan Shop is Northern California's only all-vegan one stop shop, having a lot of success with groceries & pantry staples, cookbooks, tee shirts & accessories in our first 8 months of being open. We love our loyal local and area vegans, and the travelers who come through happy to find more than a few vegan options in our shop
We have listened to our customers, especially after carrying local phenom Nacheez vegan nacho sauce, and we are ready to give them what they want: a deluxe Nacheez nachos and hot dog bar! We would be the first and only of it’s kind in the area and we are ready for the honor! Giving a nod to our friends Food Fight! Grocery, where their nacho bar has been making vegan faces happy for years, we know it would be a hit with our vegan and non-vegan friends alike.
Nacheez is a cashew-based vegan nacho sauce that is gluten/soy free and a rich source of B6 vitamins. Low in fat but high in taste an entire 8 oz jar is only 140 calories--that’s 20 calories per serving! With some higher quality chips our nachos would not only be delicious they would be good for you too.
We want to offer fresh and hot high quality vegan dogs & brats, corn dogs and Emma's Tamales (another local company providing 3 types of vegan tamales, soyrizo and seitan!) too! You can’t get that from a 7-11 or gas station!
With the successful Kickstarter campaign, we would use the funds for purchasing of the needed restaurant quality equipment to make up the station (nacho pump, chip warmer, hot dog steamer, fixings bar, and microwave), a commercial fridge, the necessary city permits, scale, and supplies. We are planning to relocate to a space that has a kitchen that supports more casual food sales in accordance to county and city health regulations.In turn we plan to help stimulate the local economy in this expansion by hiring local vegans in the shop to help with the higher customer service demands. Also, we will be helping Nacheez grow as a local company--we love helping the people who help us. Along with the shops exposure comes more chance for vegan outreach, and this is priceless. We plan to reach everyone-- one nacho boat at a time!
why, that's the prids off the album 'until the world is beautiful'.
it may seem so, huh? but the truth is we don't want to use shared equipment so we would like to buy new so it is legit. commercial equipment is very expensive, even for what appears to be 'bottom of the line' pieces. i did my best to calculate out what i thought would be a good figure to cover all our bases. one of the first things we would do is donate a portion of each sale to a worthy animal rescue such as animal place or farm sanctuary!
but of course it is. it tastes even better than it looks, and it looks pretty darn amazing!
