Project Description

Picture healthy food dressed in Dominican-Caribbean flair! That’s Juuuicy Mama's Vegan Cocina!  Our restaurant is a family business and we focus on using high-quality ingredients while creating delicious vegan food. We do this because we want you to enjoy the great tastes of these healthy foods. We have a huge focus on serving gluten-free, soy-free, non-gmo and organic food too. Our vegan food is so good that non-vegans love our Cocina as well.

Juuuicy is complemented for having the best Caribbean flavors, inspired by my grandma's cooking. Since opening a year ago in West Palm Beach, FL, we’ve remodeled the space to make sure it’s inspirational within our community.  Our authentic vegan style Dominican Caribbean flavors attract all sorts of patrons; over 30% are non-vegans and around 18% are new to the vegan way of life. We’re happy to be a part of the journey of vegans that have decided to eat healthier and be a part of a global effort to stop animal abuse.  

Our customer base is highly diverse and we keep that in mind by designing a menu that welcomes everyone. It’s no wonder that we have so many return customers. Our patrons come for the food and stay for the service. 

Our business has been hit hard by the recent economic downturn, driven by Covid19. We have not been able to secure payroll assistance through Cares Act due to the program being underfunded.

Please consider donating this campaign designed to keep our family business alive during this economic crisis.  Whatever you donate to this campaign will be used towards payroll and keeping the lights on. And even if you can’t financially support please share this campaign with family/friends via social media.

Thank you in advance for your support. We hope this campaign connects with you. We look forward to making it through this slow-down with your help and getting back to welcoming you in-person.

From our family to yours,

  • 6 amazing employees (all-day every day) 
  • Victoria Amador (Manager, Co-Chef...Cornell In the House!)
  • Rosy Tejeda (Mom & Co-Chef) 
  • Sister, Nisaury Tejeda (Front of  House Manager & Boston College in the House!)
