Maximum Investment Hit + Area Developer Testimonials + Much More
Pure Green Hits Maximum Investment on Republic
We are truly honored to have reached our maximum investment of $1,070,000 in investment from over 5,000 investors! At Pure Green, we believe success is a team sport and we could not have achieved this milestone without our incredible Pure Green investor community on Republic.
Thank you so much to all of our amazing investors. I've had the pleasure of meeting a good number of you at the opening of our first Pure Green Orlando location and I'm looking forward to meeting all of you at our future openings.
In this update, we have a lot of ground to cover to get you up to speed on all our progress. Although our campaign is over, I'll be posting frequent updates to keep our investors in the loop on everything happening. All of our investors will be invited to the grand opening of every Pure Green location that we open and there will be many more special investor perks and exclusive offers coming down the road.
I just got back from visiting our team in Orlando Florida. We had our Chicago team come to Orlando for training and they are very excited for the upcoming grand opening of our first Pure Green in Chicago.
Below is a video update with a special message for our investors from me as well testimonials from our Florida and Chicago Area Developers and team:
Pure Green Video Update
The video update shows:
- A "Thank You" message from Founder & CEO, Ross Franklin
- A look at our first Pure Green Orlando Location
- Testimonials from Our Area Developer Team (Orlando & Chicago)
Many of our investors have received perks based on their investment. Our process for these perks will start approximately 30 days after the campaign close. This is a manual process for us, so we need to first ensure the contributions are closed and then get everyone's appropriate contact information for delivery.
Pure Green Chicago Grand Opening August 1st
The grand opening of Pure Green Chicago will be on August 1st. It was originally slated for July 15th but construction was delayed by two weeks due to the rioting in Chicago. All of our investors are invited to the Grand Opening of Pure Green Chicago. Our PR team is hard at work to get some local Chicago celebrities to attend the opening to draw some additional attention... no promises but I think there is a good chance we will have some special guests.
PG Gear Update
Thanks to the massive interest from our amazing investor community, we will soon be launching our online apparel division "PG Gear." As we grow our presence throughout the country, PG Gear will be an interesting way for our guests to show their support for Pure Green.
Our fashion designer (former fashion designer for Ralph Lauren) has designed over 70 unique PG branded products. Our web team is in the process of loading all of the products on the backend of our website.
Our drop shipper is currently backed up due to COVID-19 and many products currently have significant delays. We will be waiting to launch PG Gear until shipping is back to regular shipping times. I'll keep all our investors updated on this and of course, our investors will be the first to know when we launch and will receive special investor discount codes on all PG Gear items.
New Pure Green Advisors Update
We have received verbal commitments and a few signed commitments from some incredible advisors. As soon as we have all of the paperwork done, I'll be making a dedicated update announcing all of our incredible advisors.
New Corporate Locations
We made a number of offers for new corporate locations in Miami Florida and we will be getting the leases soon. I'll be sending investor updates as soon as the leases are signed. We are targeting second generations locations, these are locations that used to be coffee shops, juice bars, ice cream shops or quick-serve restaurants in high volume areas. These locations are far less start-up capital and much faster to get open.
Pure Green Investor Perks for other Companies on Republic
There have been some members of our Pure Green community who have asked me about other companies raising on Republic and what my thoughts are on them. I've spoken to some founders of other companies raising on Republic and a few of them impressed me. I was able to convince them to offer exclusive special perks to any investor within the Pure Green investor community.
Here are some companies with exclusive perks for our Pure Green investor community who decide to invest in these companies:
1. Glyph https://republic.co/glyph
Pure Green Investor Discount:
20% discount off any online order
How to redeem:
email [email protected] with PURE GREEN in the subject line and your name in the body of the email. They will respond with a personalized coupon code at the end of their campaign.
Ross's notes on Glyph:
I spoke with Pranav Sachdev,the CEO & CoFounder of Glyph. He was introduced to me by one of our largest investors on Republic. He is smart, knows his business well and the company has promise if he can keep up with demand and streamline manufacturing.
2. Asarasi https://republic.co/asarasi

Ross's notes on Asarasi:
I spoke with Adam Lazar the CEO. I think educating consumers on the product will be key for this company's growth. Adam told me that they struck a big deal with a major distributor that is slated to start next year. I have not tried the Asarasi product yet.
