Herban Vegans Speakeasy

Herban Vegans started with a mission to make delicious vegan cuisine inspired by the sea and so much more, more accessible to those that would enjoy a vegan spin on pan-cultural cuisine. The owner spent over 20 years on what she calls a step up to veganism. She was never a huge fan of meat but rather toppings and sauces, and could go without it, so she did. It was also around the same time she had a health scare that was even more fuel to making the changes necessary for healthier eating choices. She had spent at least 10 years as a pescatarian before becoming vegan. She always knew that her ultimate goal was to be completely vegan. She admits that the transition for her wasn't always easy. But she made up her mind and stuck to it. She's never judgmental of anyone's journey to veganism, or quest to explore it. And she knew craving the seafood that she graciously gave up had to be replaced. This inspired her non-seafood mock versions of recipes. She shared them with family, friends, and some of the hardest critics and they all loved it. The rest was history. Herban Vegans was created to fill a void and solve a problem in vegan food selections. She often likes to refer to  Herban Vegans as the Mitchell's of vegan seafood. 
This Go Fund Me comes at a time when the effects of the pandemic are being felt across the country especially for those in the restaurant industry. And Herban Vegans is no different. We are looking to keep our dream alive by opening a retro speakeasy restaurant with an artisanal gift shop that features other vegan creatives in a communal social environment. We are firm believers that love should always lead. A love for life, our well being, and our community. Therefore it is important we create a space where all are welcome and encouraged to commune over delicious cuisine with each other. With the vegan population growing rapidly around us, we want to be in a position to serve those that are looking for something refreshingly different. These funds will allow us to build a place where love leads not just in the menu but in the atmosphere. We believe in times like these it's very important to not only build bridges but do it together as a community. And the only two things that can successfully bring people together are a universal love for great food and music. They both can be medicinal in so many ways. We are looking to reach our goal in 3 months so that we are ready to open by Spring of 2021. You all are greatly appreciated for supporting our vision for Herban Vegans Inc.
