A vegan business has been named one of 10 semifinalists in nonprofit Hatch Detroit’s retail contest and is now competing to win a $50,000 prize. Stephanie Selvaggio, of Detroit, MI, wants to open Woodbridge Gypsy Den & Tea Room to serve vegan menu items like chai, macaroni and cheese, smoothies, and a variety of seasonal teas. The four most top-voted businesses by Friday, Oct. 14, will move on to a final round next week to pitch their idea in a live Q&A session with judges. The business with the most public votes will win $50,000 and supportive services to open its doors and help continue Hatch Detroit’s mission of revitalizing and drawing attention to the city.
