About

Times Square NYC
Times Square NYC

Fairyella Ice Pops are tasty, vegan, frozen treats carefully crafted by hand from fresh fruits and vegetables we puree or squeeze.  Not only are they healthy, but they are also delicious, and adults love them as much as their kids do!

Fairyella Ice Pops contain fresh, organic ingredients and love -- nothing else! No added stabilizers, artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives, just fresh, wholesome juice.  Only 2 of our flavors contain a touch of agave or organic sugar and each Fairyella Ice Pop contains no more than five grams of sugar!

We just started our 5th year and have grown to 65 locations, which include 34 Northern California Whole Food Stores.  We just signed with a national distributor to help us get into schools and hospitals for patient menus because we feel that the food in hospitals need to be healing.

My husband and I have been doing all the marketing, sales, production and deliveries and now we have two distributors.  With our growth, we need to buy a second filling machine and a larger freezer to keep up with the demand and growth we see for 2019 saturating Northern California and growing to Southern California.

$15,000 will allow us to purchase a second packaging machine to double our production and put a down payment on a larger walk-in freezer for our facility.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge for us will be keeping up with the demand as we saturate our Northern California region retail and hospital sales while growing to Southern California in the upcoming year. This is why we are seeking funds to expand our freezer and buy a second packaging machine to handle the scale of growth we project for 2019.

Once we are able to finally scale up to a multi-regional business model we will start getting Fairyella Ice Pops to the hospitals for children and adults who are going through cancer treatments. Providing them with a healthy treat that is good for them and also helping them feel better is our mission.

Being a 2017 graduate from the Milestone Maker Program at the SF Nasdaq Entrepenuerial Center has helped me to develop this growth strategy and make industry partnerships for success.
