Grand Opening of Pure Green Orlando set for June 1st + 1,000 Juices to Front Line & Hospital Workers + Much More
$671,532 in Investment Raised from 3,447 Investors
First, we are truly honored to have all of our now 3,447 investors in our Pure Green family! We have now raised $671,532 and we have enough funds to fully execute our growth plans. We have been invited by Republic to extend our campaign and we will be making our final decision to extend our campaign or not early next week. Any additional funds we raise from where we are now will be used to accelerate our growth and exceed our projections.
We’ve had a busy past week at Pure Green Franchise. Here is the run-down of what we’ve accomplished and what we are working on:
Pure Green Orlando, Grand Opening June 1st , You're Invited!
That's right, our first location in Orland Florida is opening on June 1st and you're invited! This location is located in Orlando, Florida at 4353 Edgewater Drive.
If you live in Orlando Florida or happen to be in the area on June 1st, you are invited to attend the grand opening with us, meet our Orlando sub franchisor, and try all of our products. Michael Cecchini (our Director of Operations) and I will be flying to Florida next week to train the Orlando team and prepare for the opening.
I will be at the Orlando location on June 1st and would love to you meet you in person if you can make it. If you're not able to come in person, don't worry, I’ll be taking some videos of the opening and will post an investor update so all of you can see it... you won't miss a 'beet.'
The next Florida location to open will be on the NASA campus for NASA employees (closed to the public) followed by new excited location that we will be announcing soon.
Pure Green Chicago Grand Opening July 1st to July 14th
Our first location in Chicago on Lincoln Avenue will be opening between July 1st and July 14th. I'll announce the exact date as we get a little closer to opening. This location is at 2344 N Lincoln Avenue in Chicago. Here are some renderings of how the first Chicago location will look:

We donated 1,000 Juices to Front Line & Hospital Workers in a single day!
On Saturday, May 16th, we donated 1,000 bottles of cold-pressed juice to front line and hospital workers at and around NYC hospitals. Our wholesale division had some juice that was nearing its expiration date that was originally slotted for hotels and we decided to put it good use.
With our mission of building healthier communities around the globe, we feel a responsibility to give back to our local communities. This level of commitment will continue and grow as we scale Pure Green Franchise across the nation.
Check out the video and please share.
Our Instagram account @puregreenfranchise surpassed 11,000 followers this week through our work with influencers. Our goal is to reach 50,000 followers by the end of July which we believe is highly achievable considering some of big influencers who are helping to promote us.

New Automated Franchise Lead System
We rolled out a new automated franchise lead system this week using a stack of third-party technologies. We set-up a new franchise lead form through Typeform which automatically loads leads into our new CRM set-up on Hubspot. The franchise lead automatically receives an email from me with a link to schedule a 15-minute introductory call with us through Calendly. This new system helps to streamline our franchise lead management as we have been inundated these last few weeks with prospects who want to open their own Pure Green Franchise. Our lead system is now set-up for scalability as we grow, and we will continue to make enhancements.
Pure Green x Ternio Collaboration
I’ve been impressed with another founder who is also raising on Republic, Ian Kane, Founder & COO of Ternio. Ian and I organized a collaboration to help draw attention to each other’s campaign on Republic and we added some nice perks. Here are the details:
Both Pure Green and Ternio BlockCard are equity crowdfunding on Republic and the founders of each company have collaborated to extend unique perks and help co-promote each other’s campaign.
Pure Green is offering Ternio investors an exclusive Ternio discount code on any cold-pressed juice order (delivered to your home). Use promo code “BLOCKCARD” to claim and check out Ternio’s campaign here: https://republic.co/ternio/

In good health,
