About this project
WHO WE ARE:
World, meet Little Choc Apothecary-- the new vegan bakery, creperie, juice bar and apothecary in town! Now strap your boots up and prepare your taste buds, folks.
We use only the freshest, local, organically grown ingredients, and choose to omit eggs, dairy, refined white sugar, and other processed ingredients to ensure the healthiest, and most nutritionally dense products, while leaving minimal carbon footprint.
We focus on nourishing your body and soul through healthy dessert, medicinal tea, and art. All of our desserts are carefully crafted to not only have great taste, but to provide a useful, nourishing function for your body. A great example is our raw B12 Brownie; made from protein rich hemp seeds, antioxidant powerhouses raw cocoa and dates, and fortified with vitamin B12, so each brownie provides protein, energy, and a daily value of the essential vitamin B12 that vegans and vegetarians are notoriously deficient in.
We nourish your creativity with the Ice Cream Canvas--a slab of dairy-free ice cream that comes with an edible paint set, made from natural, organic veggies. Our guests can paint their next masterpiece before chowing it down.
A huge pastime in England, afternoon tea has caught the eye of many Americans recently, but there isn't nearly enough of this service in NYC. It's truly a delight to bring it to Brooklyn!
We have over a hundred different herbs available for sale. Our guests can buy herbs as they are, or request a delicious tea blend based on their specific preferences; things like anti-anxiety tea, sleep aid, libido enhancing, stress reducing, and teas that help with weight loss.
And finally, VEGAN CREPES smothered in homemade nut butters, hazelnut spread, caramel and chocolate sauces, made with and accompanied by homemade nut milks. This is what we've all been waiting for!
Little Choc Apothecary is a business with a mission. We want the world to know that it's possible to live a healthy lifestyle without having to eat boring, tasteless food—the terms "healthy" and "dessert" can coexist after all!
We want to be part of the solution for the well-fed, yet malnourished population of New York, and set an example for other businesses alike through fair trade, and humane, sustainable business practices.
Promoting environmental and animal welfare, helping local, organic farmers and business thrive, spreading health, and making more vegan options available due to an ever-growing demand for them, while cultivating a fun and creative environment in our community is simply a dream come true!
Reaching our goal will allow us to pay the initial legal fees, put the deposit down for a space,build out the kitchen, begin renovation, and buy a bulk of the equipment.However, it's only a fraction of our expenses; in order to complete the renovation, buy appliances, the rest of the equipment, furniture, and dishes, we are relying on our kind-hearted investors for a credit line.
Here's is the breakdown of what each funding goal will accomplish:

Risks and challenges
With the high rate of failure among new businesses, it's hard to trust a new entrepreneur to do all the right things to make such a venture a successful one. Expecting this to be a smooth sail would be foolish, so we've planned for the worst, and fully prepared to tackle the unexpected.
Little Choc Apothecary has been rigorously planned for the last four years by Julia, down to the smallest details. Anyone who knows her will tell you the countless hours and sleepless nights she spent pouring her heart and soul into making this project a reality. This isn't another business idea; to Julia this is a vision with a cause that will help her make that small difference in society, and give back to a world that has been so kind to her. This means that she is determined to make this happen by any and all means necessary.
What this means for you, the backers, is that you will most likely never see your rewards... JUST KIDDING! Your support means the world to us because it means you believe in us enough to put up your hard earned cash to help make Little Choc Apothecary a reality! This puts you on the VIP list of our mind, and we will do everything possible to get what we promised you in a timely and efficient manner.
We will be working our butts off to have all of your rewards delivered on time; we're prepared for this like ninjas for a ninja fight, so hopefully no delays.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
