When we opened Greedi Vegan Crown Heights April 2018, we had no idea that 300 sq. feet (about the size of a yellow school bus!) would not be enough space for our customers over the next 5 years.   We were optimistic about its potential, but the success of Greedi Vegan exceeded our expectations.   Fortunately for us, the community has embraced Greedi Vegan with open arms and we have outgrown our space.

Currently,h we only have the capacity to feed 8 people dining-in at a time during the winter months and 12 people during the summer.   This is a phenomenal problem to have, but we are now faced with the dilemma of increasing our capacity to feed large groups of 4 or more like: couples, families, friends, tourists, or even provide suitable accessibility for all.   Given the chance with your support, we can bring Greedi Vegan to an incredible new level.   We will now have the ability to provide savory healthy food as well as jobs with the opening of Greedi Vegan Bed Stuy.

Our new home in Bed Stuy is 700 sq. ft. It is intimate, yet large enough to accommodate 19-25 customers at a time. Offering room for take-out and comfortable dine-in space.  The space that we have chosen was not previously a restaurant and requires updating.

With the additional space, we can afford to provide our customers the opportunity to host private events, we plan to curate community cooking classes and best of all having the ability to offer senior citizens discounted healthy lunch options that focus on combating diseases like: diabetes, cancer, kidney disease, and hypertension.

A larger kitchen will support more storage and efficient prep, which supports the overall cooking process. The new location will provide Greedi Vegan the resources to cater on and off-site events and by popular demand allow us to expand the menu to include breakfast, lunch, and dinner options 6 days per week in both locations. What’s more is the expanded menu will have bowls curated with a perfectly balanced meal to support disease reversal!

We have the best customers who travel from every borough and different states to try Greedi Vegan. We want to continue cooking and making all of you happy by providing healthy vegan comfort food that is full of love.

I've always been one who enjoys healthy conversation and dialogue. Now, I connect through food and I absolutely enjoy every moment of it. My customers and I share information and inspire one another through food. We share our favorite restaurants both nationally and internationally and most importantly we share information about health and preventative care and healing through food. It feels as if we've known each other forever.

There is pure joy in providing healthy food and we take great pride in preparing our food with fresh organic ingredients each day. The Greedi Vegan goal is to always provide appetizing food in inner-city communities that need healthier options. The best part of what we do is seeing the expression on our customers' faces when they take their first bite!

Our message will always be "Eat Clean, Eat Well, Eat Greedi" because we work diligently to put the best ingredients in your food and we want you to feel good knowing your food was prepared with love and intention.

Greedi Vegan is home for all to heal through camaraderie and the opportunity to learn about healthier food decisions that taste good. Help us on all of our journeys, to strive to eliminate barriers that prevent urban areas access to affordable, quality, and healthy fresh food.

 We only have 60 days to fundraise this money, please share the Kickstarter with your friends, family, and networks to make this dream a reality!

Risks and challenges

The goal is to have the Bed Stuy Grand Opening to celebrate our 1 year Anniversary!
With your support, we can complete the necessary updates by our deadline.
Once the money is raised our challenges will be securing needed licenses,
securing all of our kitchen equipment and appliances, and staffing all open roles
before opening.
