San Diego Vegan Co-Op Seeks Online Donations

A soon-to-be all-vegan co-op based in San Diego, CA is looking for support via Kickstarter.

California-based restaurant-entrepreneur Mitch Wallis has taken to Kickstarter to seek financial support for his startup, San Diego Vegan Co-Op, which he hopes to open next spring. Wallis has found an accessible 8,000-square-foot property next to an eco-friendly alternative-fuel station, and imagines the co-op will be an eclectic grocery that features local produce, natural medicine, a café, and public cooking classes. Construction is estimated to take about six months. The project hopes to raise $150,000 by October 13, which will directly go toward the startup.
