Project Description

Our Project Mission

YANY Beauty is a cosmetic brand and beauty retailer. Our mission is to be a household name in the beauty industry through our own cosmetic and skincare line while showcasing top brand names and local Black-owned beauty brands to support our communities.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Problem

According to a reports in 2017 Black consumers spent over $473 million on haircare each year, but owned less than 1% of the market share. YANY Beauty is a black-owned cosmetic brand and beauty retailer, also representing underrepresented brands online and in store.

Opportunity to Grow

While black-business owners are starting to claim their space in the beauty industry, there are still only a handful of black-owned beauty supplies in the country and fewer black-owned cosmetic brands. YANY Beauty is in a place for rapid growth. For example a black-owned beauty supply store opened in Nashville in 2019, and reportedly made $50,000 in the first 3 hours. Beauty is a multi-billion dollar industry and trends are not decreasing.

 

Were Here!

Our main goal is to create a beauty space for and by black women, while also celebrating the uniqueness of all cultures. We embrace underrepresented brands, giving them the space to be seen and heard as well.

Here’s what customers can expect:

  • Products that they want
  • Vegan and cruelty-free cosmetics and skincare
  • High-end hair care products
  • The best local brands
  • The best national hair and skincare brands
  • Modern minimalist décor
  • Friendly and welcoming service
  • Conveniences such as online ordering and curbside pickup

How You Will Help

We are seeking funding because, without it, our reality will be slow. Our doors are open but due to COVID19 shopping has gone down drastically in the area and the "new" store is not the priority. You will help us strive through the pandemic and sustain after. And while women are starting businesses at a rapid rate, far surpassing their male counterparts, they are still disadvantaged due to a lack of opportunity. Women are far less likely to reach sustainable growth, get adequate funding, or create a business that truly supports their families, employees, and communities. We want to be a part of that change.

We will spend the funding in the following ways:

  • $24,000 annual lease and utility payments
  • $10,000 inventory
  • $5,000 marketing and advertising
  • $1,600 occupation tax and insurance
  • $500 Chamber of Commerce dues
