Use of Proceeds

On a financial level, our goal is to scale the businesses aggressively in the Denver/Boulder Colorado area in the next year, and begin franchising nationwide to large and small food companies who want to expand their reach. Our second phase in late 2021 will be to market our smart fridges to offices, breweries, and gyms. Next, we plan to use a franchise model to scale nationwide in 2022
