NYC Vegan Bodega

A vegan family in the Big Apple is seeking funds to open the city's first and only 100-percent cruelty-free convenience store.

Ever wished that a bodega stocked with fresh produce, cruelty-free household products, and by-the-pound meat and cheese alternatives awaited you just down the block? If you live in New York City, that wish may soon become a reality. Aspiring vegan entrepreneur Eric Hopf and his family have started an Indiegogo campaign in hopes of opening the city’s first all-vegan convenience store. The Hopfs are currently seeking donations on the website in order to attain $15,000 that they can use to secure a space and purchase food storage equipment, products, and even a deli “non-meat” slicer for their proposed business, which would be the first bodega of its kind.
