 MARKETING PLAN

Roots & Vine Produce and Cafe Inc., is a start-up aiming to revolutionize the convenience store concept. Connecting Farmers To People and Reconnecting People With Real Food. Our core mission is to target and eliminate food deserts in blighted neighborhoods, create jobs for the communities we serve as well as specialized franchise opportunities. We are dedicated to building relationships with family farmers nationwide to supply our locations, that will increase their bottom line and provide Roots & Vine Produce and Cafes with the best quality produce available. Offering communal space alongside the store gives each location the possibility to connect with people of the community, host workshops, classes, food demos and healthy dialogue with customers to introduce to them healthier food options, recipes and solutions to reduce food related illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease and obesity.

Roots & Vine Produce and Cafe; will revolutionize the convenience store one zip code at a time. It should be a basic human right to eat quality food instead of food like products that are available at almost every turn. The rate of food deserts nationwide is an epidemic, the USDA acknowledges this with a lengthy map of the nationwide shortage of access to real food.  All of these areas are an ideal location for Roots &Vine Produce and Cafe.

There is more fruit in a rich man's shampoo, than on a poor man's plate.

     COMPETITIVE EDGE

Our health is directly correlated to the foods we eat. It should be just as easy to get a fresh produce or bulk dry goods at reasonable prices from the corner store, just as easy as it is to get genetically modified chips, chemical laden drinks and years old canned goods. If we continue to eat food like products we will continue to suffer from food related illnesses such as diabetes, heart disease and obesity. We must eat beyond the basic apple a day, concentrated orange juice that is truly orange flavored water and industrialized citric acid, unGodly bleached and blindly enriched grains. We must return to real food!

adult-agriculture-backyard-planting-162637.jpgFor this reason we turn to our great Family Farmers! They possess the artillery and Roots & Vine Produce and Cafe will be the boots on the ground to fight the war on health in our communities.

The magnitude of this business plan is HUGE!! Our communities are in dire need of healthy food and our family farmers need economic stability to continue to produce great harvest. Roots & Vine Produce and Cafe will be the farm to kitchen table catalyst our families need for optimal health.

Cafe in our stores offers the community an environment where they can come to connect, network, learn, share and obtain information to utilize with their family and peers.

Huge conglomerate grocers appeal to the wealthy offering quality produce at premium prices that the average 99% of the population cannot afford. Our target market is low to moderate income families. According to the United Stated Department of Agriculture the access to food especially healthy food is scarce. (Food insecurity data conference https://youtu.be/QRUZIFuCUG8

    Hi,
    I am interested in investing in this company but I have a couple of questions. Why did the last campaign close early? Also, why isn't there a link to buy shares for this campaign?

    Thank you,
    Diane
