Project Description

In only two years, Blacklanta has become a growing directory for black-owned businesses in Atlanta. Through our online directory we elevate the presence of black owners and their brands. We created this platform to circulate the black dollar back into the community. 

 

The census report states that there are 25K+ black owned businesses in Atlanta. We started Blacklanta because there was a need for locating these businesses. 

We've been diligent in our mission to bring awareness to local businesses online, but we have a better solution. We are now building a physical space to bring the directory to life.

BLACKLANTA is evolving into a "reimagined" convenience store called the Black Creators Convenience Store "BCCS".  No, Blacklanta isn't going away, this is a physical extension!

Renderings of our convenience store concept which will feature a Creator Service desk, a spin on "Customer Service" which will provide resources for photography, videography, content creation and more.

Think of your typical convenience store + add some sauce + a great experience, that's where we come into play.  The name says it all, we are bringing all products and services created by black people under one roof.

Entrepreneurs of all avenues want to play on a level field and it just isn’t that simple to get in a store when you’re a small but growing company. Here at the BCCS we want to have a location that welcomes a new trash bag company or skin care line that otherwise wouldn’t have the chance to get on crowded store shelves. 

 

With the success of our growing directory, we are now looking to crowdfund $50,000 for the development of our first convenience store location. We are also always looking for businesses that would love to partner with us and bring value to the store through partnerships, ambassadorships, or having products in our store that will be just as excited about this as we are.

 

The Black Creators Convenience Store is set to be unlike anything else in Atlanta and we want you to come along with us on our journey.  We hope that you will support our mission and share our story. 

Thank you for all of the support so far!
