Christine – Munch On! I create, package and sell plant-based and gluten-free snacks

iCrowdNewswire - May 15, 2016


Munch On!



Personal Story

I grew up in a family that had physical and financial hardships. My father had six back surgeries, but passed down a great work ethic. He opened his own business and was able to provide for his family after a slow start. In the summers, I would wear a matching work shirt and go on jobs with him. This happened starting when I was seven years old. He was a locksmith and we worked indoors, outdoors, etc. He taught me to work hard, do your best and respect your customers…they provide for your living.
I have been a manager in restaurants and have passed this down to my own child and my fiancée’s three children, by getting them their first jobs where they became star employees.
I started my business just over a year ago and now have a loyal following. I work part-time for an employer and keep up with my business.
My goal is to become financially self-sufficient and to continue giving back to others. I am a current supporter of Kiva and gave a gift card for a contribution to one of the children for Christmas.

Business Description

I create, package and sell plant-based and gluten-free snacks. We do pop-up sales, have a standing monthly vendor agreement with an outdoor market and our products are in two juice bars, one vegan restaurant and a wellness clinic. I am currently in talks with a juice bar chain (4 locations) and a language academy to carry our products. We have just joined a farmer’s market that will sell the first Saturday of each month.
I was working in a vegan, gluten-free restaurant and frequently heard customers talking about how they wished there were snack foods more readily available for themselves and their children. With the support of my boss, I started Munch On!
I am proud of the fact that I have people passing along our business by word of mouth and we make it a point to donate to a worthy cause each month.
I use my former boss’s commercial kitchen and would love to have my own space to produce our snacks.

What is the purpose of this loan?

This loan will allow me to lease a spot to produce and sell my food. Having a storefront will allow for walk-in traffic to increase revenue. I will no longer have to drive across town, sometimes twice a day, to make our snacks. It would allow me to spend more time producing product, rather than commuting. If I have a facility close to home, I will be able to have assistance from my family and friends.


A loan of $3,000 helps me to lease a physical location for food production
