Give a little and get a lot with this vegan ice cream Kickstarter
The popular woman-owned ice creamery in Austin has been sharing a spot with a juice preveyor for the last four years. The duo behind these dairy free creations hope that their biggest fans will help them branch out in to a bigger home.
Co-owner Valerie Ward told the Austin Chronicle that there’s much work to be done. “Tearing down walls, getting city permits, building new walls, moving everything over, decorating, and letting everybody know we’re moving. Not to mention funding it all. It’s a big leap, but we’re really excited to get the community involved and offer rewards for their support. Our backers are basically just making a promise to eat a lot of ice cream over the next year.”
That’s a promise people won’t have a hard time doing. The team serve scratch made sundaes, shakes, and cones, full of their sixteen delicious flavours. From Cubano Coffee to Cinnamonkey Elephantastic, there’s a little something for everyone. If the 10K pledge is outside of your budget, pint, gift certificates, and custom patches are still up for grabs at the more modest donation amounts.
Sweet Ritual has already hit over $37K of the $43K they’re asking for (at the time of publishing), so share your sweetness with them before the quid pro quo deal melts.
