the project

Vitiman Kandie, LLC ( pronounced; vi-ta-min can-die) dba VK Cafe' is a cold pressed juicing company that sells 100% all natural juices , herbs that come from the earth, and healthy meal prep . I decided to launch my business after my digestive track was offset due to me losing over 120 lbs back in 2009. I would make Vitiman Kandie for my friends and family for free until one day my good friend convinced me to bottle it up. I started selling VK in 2012. In 2015 I purchased my articles of incorporation and vendors license through the state of Ohio. We currently sell our product online at vitiminkandie.com, through all of our social media outlets, and local fair events. We just landed our products on a shelf through winning a vendor competition in Cleveland, Ohio at " The New Eastside Market" and we are also opening up our first location VK Cafe' on October 25, 2019 in Glenvillage located in the Glenville community in Cleveland, Ohio. Our biggest challenge at the moment is funding for our supplies and great marketing techniques for more exposure to our product line. 

the steps

Our team will continue to participate in vendor events around the neighborhood, volunteer our time to community centers and Cleveland schools to help push the health and wellness awarness movement.

why we're doing it

We receive lost of interest in our product and are unable to deliver due to lack of inventory and capital to purchase supplies. In order to support our vendors, retailers, and our business, we are seeking an investment for more inventory and promotional marketing to have more product to sell and supply our retailers and opportunity to meet more customers. We currently partner with a non- profit Validity Sports & Enrichment that caters to youth and seniors through our sports and wellness programs. We plan to partner with NEON clinic and the wholesale distributors to expand our current product assortment, teach free workout classes, and healthy cooking demo's

budget

$1350 for two state of the art juicers from Dubic Fixtures

$1050 for supplies such as prep containers, bottling, paper & plastic, meal prep containers, etc from Uline

$2,600 for working capital, marketing, and VK Cafe' uniforms

I expect to purchase cases of supplies that will last for 6 months, advertising for more exposure, professional uniforms for employees and use the revenue from sales to invest back into the business to purchase more supplies and gain more working capital to increase on jobs available in the community. This loan will help myself and my family by giving us a family business that is valuable and that can be passed down for generations and most importantly giving back to the community.
