My name is Todd Lenig and along with my wife Amy and our four daughters own and operate Zume Brewing Co.
Zume (pronounced ZOOM) is an Iowa based brewery that manufactures Nitro Infused Cold Brew Coffee and places it in a ready-to-serve 16oz aluminum can. Our Coffee is an all natural proprietary blend of Arabica beans and water, brewed with time not heat, infused with nitrogen to achieve that naturally sweet, silky smooth texture and placed in a 16oz aluminum can for those discerning customers who expect a refreshing high quality great tasting caffeinated beverage that compliments their on-the-go lifestyle.
We currently market our cans of Nitro Coffee through local retail grocery stores however we now need to increase visibility of our coffee by attending food and beverage shows, farmer's markets and events such as bicycle rides and summer festivals.
We are raising capital to reinvest in Zume Brewing Co. with our Grounds for Support campaign to purchase a custom mobile vending tricycle to market and sell our coffee at these events.
The quotes for a custom vending trike that will allow us to market our Nitro Infused Cold Brew Coffee from both a tap and in the can are coming in around $16000 on up.
We understand that our $10000 goal won't completely cover the entire cost of the custom cold brew coffee vending trike project however it will give us enough to get the project started in time for the cart to be finished by summer. The balance we plan to cover with a portion of revenue from sales over the next three months.
My family and I hope you find it in your heart to purchase our coarsely ground cold brew coffee blend to kickstart our custom cold brew coffee vending trike project.
