My name is Francesca “Sol” Chaney, I’m a twenty-one year old entrepreneur, vocalist, creative, full spectrum doula and Pre-Health Professions/Anthropology Bachelor of Science candidate at Brooklyn College.
In 2015 I was introduced to herbalism, natural healing and holistic health care while working at my cousin’s apothecary. I began making herbal tea blends and elixirs for my own personal wellness. Soon I began incorporating them into sister circles and gatherings that I’d host on my living room floor. One of my close family members noticed my interest in plant-based wellness and worked with me in laying the foundation for Sol Sips. During the summer of 2015 we demo’d our first three drinks that went on to receive positive feedback from our community.
As our vision for Sol Sips continued to grow, we invested our time into branding and developing the core essence of our products. Sol Sips is The Official Alternative Beverage Company of Brooklyn. We take pride in creating locally-sourced organic plant-based drinks that contain four ingredients or less, with no preservatives or artificial sweeteners. In two years, we’ve created our own signature twists on herbal tea, caffeine-free herbal coffee, nut milks, eggnog, nectars, juices and very soon...wines and sodas.
In 2017 we expanded our reach, our services and our team through vending and curating events. We were offered the opportunity to do a three month pop-up cafe in Bushwick. My mother, Emeli Chaney has partnered with me in creating plant-based vegan bites, employing her background in integrative nutritional health coaching. In just four weeks we’ve received rave reviews and serviced nearly three hundred customers.
We’ve been offered the opportunity to keep the cafe space permanently!
We are extremely excited and very grateful for this phenomenal opportunity to expand Sol Sips. We are seeking support to purchase the space and make enhancements. Your contributions and energies are greatly appreciated.
*In 2018 look forward to our sliding-scale farm to table monthly community brunch, community cooking/juicing classes, more of our “Midnight Brunch” and “Tea Tones”, Sol Sips Sound shows and more!*
