Crowdfunding and Franchise Opportunities
Numerous vegan staples, including tofu, rice, quinoa, black beans, and seitan, originated in communities of color, but today communities of color face much higher rates of chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Vegan Fine Brands is a Black-owned vegan company led by its founder and CEO, Dr. Steven Smith, who spent years living in food deserts with little to no accessibility to nutrient-dense foods and saw how damaging this was for underserved communities. That’s why Dr. Smith started Vegan Fine Brands in 2016 - to offer customers a wide selection of delicious foods that are good for their health and the health of the planet.
In today’s episode of the Plant-Based Profit show, we get to know all the insights about Vegan Fine Brands’ retail experiences, and how the company is not only surviving during the ongoing pandemic but also has just announced an equity crowdfunding raise which will help the company expand and franchise in order to bring their one-of-a-kind retail experience to millions across the country. Steven Smith will further talk about Vegan Fine Brand’s plan to expand into e-commerce, which will bring a vast array of healthy, plant-products to consumers in a one-stop-shopping experience they can’t get anywhere else, all under one roof.
