How many years have you been in business in NYC?
How did you get your start and what was your initial inspiration?
I was born to a great mom and dad, that was my start. As for my business it was gradual there was no where to get the Items we wanted ourselves so we compiled and entire inventory of raw food based products, and started doing lectures with another amazing couple around the country.
What do you feel differentiates you from others in your field?
What do you feel gives you longevity in this big city with so many options?
We treat our clients and community incredibly well. We have our locals coming in with there kids and dogs just to say hi and get free treats, we have created an environment that is human and not just about sales. Our windows are filled with plants so many people don't even know what we actually are. I treat the place as if it is my home and very welcoming and we treat people better then some deserve. Most importantly, I am obsessed with only having the best products available and staying on the cutting edge.
How do you positively impact your clientele?
We are knowledgeable and can help people pinpoint the best products they need without spending too much money. We under sell products, not a great business model and it creates a trust for the longterm
