Project Description

Welcome to the launch of our Joyist membership programs! We are so excited to be working with iFundWomen's amazing platform to offer our loyal customers a way to be able to get even more from Joyist by actually joining it. This is the place for everyone who wishes they could have more Joyist in their lives to get early access to our new programs. Read below for more information on who Joyist is, why we're here, and why we want to make it even easier for everyone to eat healthy ... if you already know that, skip right to the membership options on the right to learn how to Join Joyist

 

Why Joyist exists

As healthy, successful, educated Millennials come of age, they are coming to the suburbs in droves, but the premium wellness experiences that they expect and rely on are not always coming with them. Millennials make up more than half of the market for organic food, eat 52% more vegetables than their older counterparts, eat out of the home more frequently, and, increasingly, are choosing a suburban lifestyle. But when they arrive, they find that the premium healthy food experiences they enjoyed in the city are not an option in their new home towns. 

 

Food you can feel.

 

What Joyist is

Joyist is an organic functional foods cafe that brings a premium wellness experience to city expats in their new hometowns. We are the solution for these young families who are coming to the suburbs and looking for a higher standard of wellness food. We serve food you can feel: coffee, blends, bowls, toasts, grains, salads, energy bites, and superfood snacks.  Although we've been open as a cafe for a year, we're now ready to take our offering to the next level and make Joyist not just a place you visit, but a place you join. 

 

 

Why join Joyist

We see our customers coming in daily and joking to us that Joyist is their second kitchen. That's why we're launching memberships to Joyist - we want to make access to this type of food easier, better, and more consistent for our customers. As a mother of two myself, I know that the biggest threat to eating healthy is not lack of desire but lack of time and availability. In order to do more to help people like us with that challenge, we are raising money on iFundWomen to launch our Joyist Membership program, which will include monthly coffee memberships, take-home dinner memberships, and weekly meal plan memberships. There are many ways to join Joyist!

 

This campaign is your chance to become the first to join Joyist by buying a discounted early membership into any of our programs. Thank you so much for your support in helping Joyist grow from a cafe into an integral part of the new suburban experience! We can't wait to show you all the things we have in store next.

The Project FAQs

What kind of food can I expect in the Feeling NOURISHED plan?

Thanks for asking! We're thrilled to be able to offer food that you can really feel, especially when you eat it a few days in a row. We hope to make eating healthy easy and delicious on this plan. Below is a sample menu - when we launch in March we will have 1-, 3-, and 5-day plans available

 

 

I don't live near Joyist. Can you send these things to me?

Not yet! If you'd like to participate in this campaign but don't live nearby, you can purchase our chia seed pudding recipe or one of our reusable lunch bags. Thank you for your support!

 

I don't get it. Is this a crowdfunding campaign?

Not exactly. Although we are indeed a small business looking for investors to help us grow, and we'll happily take any support, we are using the iFundWomen platform in this case as a way to spread the message about our new membership options. So this is less about raising money and more about launching new products that we eventually will offer in store too. We love iFundWomen and think it's a great forum for showcasing all of the new things we have to offer - and offering them at early bird discounts to our customers!

Adaptogens, including functional mushrooms and roots, are most effective if you use them every day.
