Midtown EcoVillage's Kale Cafe Juice Bar & Vegan Cuisine

$20,525

117

After serving our community for two years with the nonprofit my husband Omar and I started, we would like to finally open the vegan spot we always dreamed of opening.  Kale Cafe Juice Bar and Vegan Cuisine will be the only Vegan place in Volusia County. Located in beautiful Daytona Beach, less than one mile away from the beach, we will be the place for vegans, vegetarians, athletes, college students, artists, and everyone who wants to be healthy.   More than just amazing vegan food and smoothie and juice concoctions, we will be a place to come hear live music and DJ s, get a juice cleanse, and enjoy a free gallery of local artists.   Midtown EcoVillage Kale Cafe & Juice Bar will offer 100% vegan cuisine and also have a fully loaded juice and smoothie bar. Additionally, we will offer weekly low cost vegan cooking classes, family fitness events, an educational play space, gardening workshops, etc. 

Our community supports us at the events we do and our loyal customers have followed us to he farmer's markets twice a week to eat our Caribbean vegan food.  One of our customer's favorites are Brown Stew Chick'n and Jerk Tofu with Curry Chickpeas, Cucumber Mango Salad and of course our Disco Kale salad.  Not to mention our smoothies which have converted a lot of folks into kale believers.  It's now time to embark on a journey with our family and yours to bring an oasis to this food desert.  Kale Cafe will fill a much needed void for a place where everyone is welcome and can afford to eat healthy.  

With your help we can get this juice bar and vegan café open and offer low cost vegan cooking classes.  Thank you for your support! Come grow with us, come glow with us and smile because your contribution is making a huge difference and helping to nurture many minds and bodies.

Risks and challenges

We are as resourceful as it gets. We homeschool our children and we take no prisoners, quitting and failure is not an option period. Thankfully, we have done a lot of market research and unlike many new businesses, we already have cultivated a great client base that loves to brag about us from selling our products at the farmer's markets for the last two years. Additionally, we just have an impeccable work ethic and are super creative at troubleshooting. An engineer and a filmmaker; It does not get more eclectic than that. We are very honest people and we will keep our backers up to date as we chronicle the journey to opening date with our videos and blog posts on our websites. If we run into a problem, we will let you know as soon as we know, along with our solution to fixing it.
