Uptown Juice Company has signed a lease for a retail location and construction is about to begin! We need your help to purchase some of the necessary equipment for our production kitchen.

THIS PROJECT
Uptown Juice Company is building a cold production kitchen and retail space. After almost a year of making juice in a shared commissary kitchen, we’ve finally found a home on a historic block in Uptown Oakland. Building out this space is a HUGE project for us and, not to mention, quite expensive. We need your help to purchase the equipment we need in order to provide our wonderful and delicious juices to the residents and employees of Oakland and the greater Bay Area community. This includes: commercial cold-press juicer, walk-in refrigerator to store our organic produce and bottled juices, bottle washing machine to recycle and reuse our glass bottles and reduce plastic waste in our environment, stainless steel prep tables, sinks, and much, much more.

YOUR SUPPORT 
By supporting us you're not only supporting this small business and helping us to become more sustainable, you're also supporting the local community and economy, organic agriculture, and allowing us to provide more jobs. Once this kitchen is ready we'll be able to increase our production, which means Uptown Juice Company will be creating more jobs in the local economy. Uptown Juice Company will also be able to buy more organic produce from local farmers who are growing food in sustainable ways.

OUR PRODUCT
Uptown Juice Company makes organic, cold-pressed juices from fresh, organic produce that's sourced locally whenever possible. We don't add water or sugar, so our juice is deliciously intact with all of the enzymes, antioxidants, vitamins, and nutrients that your body needs. Find out more about Uptown Juice Company on our website.

JUST REVEALED! Exclusive t-shirt design by Mateo & Isabel if you become a backer and choose a reward level that includes a t-shirt. T-shirt only available to our project backers.

Risks and challenges

This fundraiser is all or nothing: if we don't reach our goal, we will not receive any of the donations pledged and your money is returned.

Some facts:

- We’ve completed architectural plans for the design of our space and have submitted them to the City of Oakland and the Alameda County Health Department. As soon as we receive the green light, construction will begin immediately.

- We will use the money raised from this Kickstarter campaign to order all of the necessary equipment for our business to open on time (currently slated for May 2014). Lead time for some of our equipment to arrive after being ordered is 2-3 months so it’s important for us to meet and/or exceed the Kickstarter project goal and get our equipment ordered right away.

This kitchen is well on it’s way to being built and your contributions will help to make it complete.
