Girls Inc. of Metro Denver (GIMD)’s Social Enterprise Coffee Shop, Bold Beans, is gearing up to launch our second venture, a mobile coffee truck. The coffee truck will expand operations for Bold Beans and employment opportunities for Bold Baristas. Bold Beans is a girl-led coffee business providing opportunities for teen girls to explore entrepreneurship, gain real-world business skills, and enter the workforce through careers that lead to long-term economic independence.
In addition, the coffee truck will provide opportunities for girls to explore additional aspects of small business development including business planning, mobile business marketing, product development, customer/location analysis, and social media drivers.
Jenny Valadez Fraire has been a Bold Barista for over a year and shared, “I am looking forward to the mobile coffee truck because it is a wonderful opportunity to expand our client base and provide people all over Metro-Denver with the chance to support Girls Inc. through a simple purchase. Additionally, our expansion will allow me to step into a leadership role.”
Girls Inc. of Metro Denver received initial funding from devoted supporters to get this project off the ground, including Mile High United Way’s Women United Innovation Fund and the Daniels Fund. We launched a crowdfunding campaign to encourage support from loyal customers, donors, and friends of Girls Inc., so that the community can support us in our final push to get our coffee truck up and running!
