About this project

Fresh Brewed Tees was born three years ago. Our goal has been to sell cool gear and to focus on giving back to our community. Three years later, we've stayed true to that goal and continue to do both!

We love Cleveland and all of its cool hotspots—E. 4th/Gateway District, the Warehouse District, Ohio City, Tremont, Playhouse Square, Public Square, east side, west side... the list goes on. When we decided to look for a retail location, we wondered how we could choose just one spot.  So we got creative and thought, “what if we go where the people are?!” 

This new retail truck will help us bring our gear directly to customers & fans (you guys!). We've already purchased the truck and with your help we're going to make this thing street ready!

Think of all the cool events that take place in Cleveland: Cavs, Browns and Indians games, concerts, festivals, parties, plays, art shows, college events, fairs, etc.  Now imagine being able to pick up a sweet tee or hoody right at the event location!

Check out our article about the truck in Cleveland Magazine!

We need to not only renovate the truck, but also finalize permission with the City of Cleveland so we can sell on the street (not just in private lots). We're currently working with Councilman Joe Cimperman, who has been a great help. However, we need your help as well.

There are 3 ways you can help!

1.) Back the project! We have some cool incentives for those of you who do (listed on the right side of the page!).

2.) Spread the word! Share our story with friends and family - and on social media!

3.) Sign our petition & let the City of Cleveland know you support us! The petition can be signed here: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/228/220/230/help-fresh-brewed-tees-get-city-approval-for-clevelands-first-t-shirt-truck/#sign.

We can't wait to see y'all out on the road! 

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge we'll face is getting permission from the City of Cleveland to sell from the truck on city streets in the central business district. We're currently able to sell in private lots with permission from the lot owner and a $300+ permit per location, but we'd need the city to change the laws in order for us to sell on the street like food trucks. Help make this dream a reality and sign our petition and contact our local leaders!
