The Starbucks of Tea
Starbucks is a great purveyor of coffee, but no one is the great purveyor of tea. Black Momma Tea & Cafe wants to be that purveyor. We want the Black Momma brands to have a physical extension of our online success, just like Amazon started online and is now building stores.
We are starting to build our brick-and-mortar locations in New York and New Jersey, and want to start franchising after they're completed. Each cafe is meant to have a liquor license, so we won't just be serving tea.
Two NY Locations
One site is in a nice affluent community that already has a Starbucks down the block and a Dunkin Donuts on the same side of the street in the opposite direction. There are three high schools right nearby, plus a library, bowling alley, salon, car wash, and a variety of small businesses within this busy area. This site used to be an old Taco Bell, and we're going to acquire the building, demolish it, and construct a new building with a drive thru pole.
Our second location is on Colonial Springs Rd in Wheatley Heights, NY on Long Island. The Adventure Park of Long Island and the USDAN Summer Camp for the Arts with 1000 students are located across the street. This location is 5.8 miles from the Colonial Springs Golf Club, 7 miles from Farmingdale University and 5 miles from the newly renovated Wyandanch LIRR Train Station. The headquarters for our franchising are right next door.
What's Next: Franchises. 293 Requests to Date.
We're targeting franchises as our growth plan. To date, we've had 293 franchisee requests. Our contract stipulates a $75K franchise fee, with 5% gross royalty and 2% national marketing over 10 years. We will provide turnkey architectural and engineering design based on the approved location franchisees submit. Franchises are responsibile for contruction build out.
Our Real Estate Acquistions Will Support Franchisees and Create Our Own Distribution Network
1. BMTC aquired a two-acre commercial property in Alabama in an Opportunity Zone designated as a distribution center for the South East Region of Franchisees. We received a Tax Exemption at the lowest tax rate application to grow Tea and Hemp. We intend to lease out space for storage and distribution to others outside the BMTC Franchise network.
2. BMTC acquired commercial real estatelLand in Detroit near Downtown area available for a BMTC retail location and Craft Grow.
3. BMTC acquired land in Indiana designated as another distribution center 8 minutes from the New Gary Indiana Customs airport. As well as the property across the street with a potential tenant, if the tenant chooses to stay. This location is also in an opportunity zone.
4. BMTC acquired a 3/4 acre commercial property downtown near Indian University Campus slated for a potential franchisee location.
Plans for Future Listing.
We already applied for our ticker registration for NYSE for future listing once all criteria are completed and once we complete the Reg A Plus IPO in the future.
What You'll Find in Black Momma's Tea Cafes
BMTCs serve tea, beverages, and other products made with Black Momma's ingredients, including Rumchata, chai tea zucchini bread, Hibiscus muffins, vegan organic donuts, and chocolate truffles infused with Black Momma vodka. Vanessa has already commissioned local shops to produce products for the BM Tea Cafe. Now that hemp is legal, BMTC will carry CBD products to service our growing customers. We partnered with SunJoined as one of their distribution channels and will carry our own Black Momma CBD products. In recreational states, we will sell Black Momma tea "pots" and a variety of proprietary CBD products.

Who is Vanessa Braxton?
Vanessa is a retired Structural Engineer who has 20 years of experience in construction and engineering. She used to manage $350 million annual budgets for construction contracts and projects.
Vanessa built her first franchise Burger King 22 years ago, then a Red's restaurant in Manhattan, and also built her own small business that was later acquired.
Black Momma Liquor started as a dream to leave behind a legacy for her kids. The tea transition stemmed from her desire to eliminate chemical additives in her vodkas -- she then sourced tons of tea and decided to sell the rest. Vanessa opened up a crowdfunding campaign after numerous Black Momma fans inquired about investing in their favorite products.
Vanessa still rolls up her sleeves and gets her hand dirty at her manufacturing facility.
