    Hi  Zellajuice,

    Check out http://www.prosper.com/.  Prosper is people to people lending.  You might be able to raise enough money there to open your next store.

    Good Luck!

    Zellajuice,

     

    This particular forum is intended to be used as a place to practice your pitch and submit it for critique by the community- this is just an exercise, not an actual call for investment.

     

    I sense from your post that you were intending to find people who were interested in investing – so you may be getting the response you hoped for. You might want to try the “expansion funding” forum.

     

    As to the “pitch” itself, it sounds like you have a good product which has some real potential. You have the advantage (over a pure startup) of your two years of operation. If the business is profitable – you might want to stress that point.

     

    If the soft ice cream is part of the product offering – you might want to discuss it at the same time as the juice product.

     

    If you have business plan or executive summary – you might want to mention that it is available to “interested” parties.

     

    Hope this helps. Let me know if you have additional questions.

    I am looking for investors to help my business grow.

    I own a Juice Bar in a small town. I have been here for almost 2 years. We have a great product. We sell smoothies that are made with fresh juice and have our fresh cashew milk in them. It`s a great concept that should be more available to the public. Instead all we have is McDonalds & Starbucks everywhere. Even the big smoothie chain Jamba Juice is not actually healthy for you. Why don`t we have more healthy food and drinks available?

    If we get the proper funding, we would like to open another location in the next town over. It has a sports arena and we would like to find a location within a few blocks from there.

    I have tried everything to get funding and I just can`t do it based on my credit. five years ago I had identity theft and had to claim bankruptcy.

    So I thought I would post on here and see if anyone was interested in helping. With the proper funding this could get big. Maybe even as big as Jamba Juice.

    The best part is...we figured out how to make the most delicious soft ice cream that is non-dairy, organic, and sugar-free (sweetened with honey). We could be the next healthy Baskin Robbins!!

    Join us in our dream. You`ll be glad you did.

    Thanks for reading :)
