Project Description

Jeany's Caribbean Elixirs is a premium Caribbean-inspired beverage brand.  Our elixirs not only taste great but also offer health benefits to our customers.  We are in a position to expand into specialty grocery stores, such as Whole Foods and Central Market, which is exciting!!  You, our elixir family, have supported us from day one, and we are calling on your support once again.  We are raising $30,000 in order to purchase a refrigerated, commercial cargo van to safely transport our beverages for deliveries.  

 

The Problem

We started our brand in 2017, searching for fruit juices that reminded us of our grandmother's juice recipes from Grenada.  Mama Lyris, our maternal grandmother, was the OG Master Herbalist in our family.  Needless to say, we did not find anything on the market that stood up to her homemade juices.  What we did find were tropical juices that were heat pasteurized, used syrups and powders, and tasted watered down.  Those beverages may be in the "better for you"  juice category, but frankly, they didn't taste that good.  

The Solution? Drink Jeany's Caribbean Elixirs!!

Jeany's Caribbean Elixirs is the solution!  Our elixirs feature:​

  • Clean label with simple recipes ​

  • Contain functional ingredients focusing on anti-inflammation and anti-oxidant properties

  • Available without added sweeteners

  • Cold-pressed without heat pasteurization

  • Have been used for chronic health issues such as high blood pressure, chronic joint pain and digestion issues.

Impact to Date (since 2017)

  • Selling at three farmers markets in Austin TX

  • Sold in trendy, hip coffeehouses, restaurants and hotels such as Big Nonnas, Suga's Cakery, The Driskill, South Congress Hotel, Manana Coffeehouse, Bobo's Snack Bar. 

  • 2.3K followers on Instagram

  • 3840 customers served in 2021

  • Featured in local news media such as Austin Woman Magazine, Austin Chronicle, Austin American Statesman and Fox 7 News.

Ms. Jeany is bottling one of our popular flavors, Tamarindo with guava.

Size of the Opportunity

  • US Refrigerated Juice Market – estimated at $660 Million (2021) ​

    Suja -$67 Million annually​

  • 2021 US Refrigerated Juice Sales

The Campaign FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions:

1) Yay for rewards!!  When will I receive mine?

We will be shipping and/or hand-delivering your rewards starting on December 01, 2021.  You will receive them well before the Christmas Holiday!

2) Not all of us live in Austin and we want to support too!  What is the best way to do so?

For those customers who do not live in ATX, you can always make a monetary donation on our campaign page or select our Tea Time Reward which will consist of our Caribbean Hot Chocolate and Spice Tea blends, along with a mug. 

3) A new cargo van?  Refrigerated too!  When will you buy it?

We will purchase the new cargo van in February 2022, right after tax season is underway.  If you live locally, we would love for you to come and see it at one of our local farmers markets.  For everyone else, we will be sure to post pictures on our website and social media pages!

4) I live outside of Austin and I really want to try these elixirs?  Is there any way that you can ship them to me?

We are grateful to our customers, both locally and nationwide, for your support!  Shipping during the pandemic has been challenging, especially for perishable products such as ours.  If you are wanting to try our elixirs, please send an email to info@jeanysgingerelixir.com.  We can tell you how much it would cost to ship to your location via Next Day UPS.
