Reasons to Invest

Recognizing the rapid growth of the plant-based market, GTFO It's Vegan launched in 2020 to appeal to the needs of all individuals seeking a more healthy lifestyle. This extends well beyond vegans and includes vegetarians, flexitarians, athletes, and those with diet allergies and sensitivities.
We have already surpassed $3 million in revenue in the past trailing 12 months of operations. In just 12 months, we have become a go-to destination to launch new vegan and plant-based brands and SKUs (Stock Keeping Units).
GTFO It’s Vegan is led by a husband and wife team with significant entrepreneurial experience. Currently we are self-financed with no outside shareholders.

OVERVIEW


The Destination For Everything Vegan, For Everyone, Everywhere.

At GTFO It’s Vegan, we believe that healthy and sustainable plant-based eating is the key to a better future for both people and the planet. That’s why we created the one-stop company for everything vegan.


We try all the products we sell to ensure they meet our taste, texture, scent, appearance, and packaging standards, with over 3,000 SKUs across 700+ brands. Our guiding principles of grace, abundance, hope, and flow have helped us build a community of tens of thousands customers enthusiastic about vegan and plant-based foods, and we are excited to continue to grow. 

THE PROBLEM


Vegan Customers (Retail & Wholesale) Lack a Single Destination to Find Their Products

Even as the market for plant-based and vegan product rapidly grows, there is no single source destination to get everything vegan.


While the competitive space is vast, no one currently owns the vegan / plant-based retail, wholesale, and distribution market.  


Our vegan and vegan-friendly customers, vendors and retailers tell us they PREFER exclusively vegan partners; they don’t want to obtain products from traditional suppliers that serve the non-vegan market. 

THE SOLUTION


Creating One Central Destination for Everything Vegan

Our organization is one that represents the "New Age Vegan" movement, appealing to people who may or may not be vegan, but are looking for better ways to live and eat without sacrificing the enjoyment of eating a tasty meal.




We pride ourselves on giving the best possible customer experience, from an easy to use, visually appealing online shopping experience, to processing orders within 24-hours for delivery within 1 to 2 days (at the customer’s request). 

How We Find Our Products

We seek out the newest innovations in vegan and plant-based products from all around the world, including meat, seafood, cheese and dairy, bakery, snacks, household goods, pet food, and much more.  We currently have over 3,000 SKUs across 700+ brands. Soon, we will add clothing and cosmetics.




We try every product before featuring it on our site to ensure each one adheres to our standards in taste, texture, scent, appearance, and packaging, so when you try our products you'll want to say "GTFO It's Vegan".


Our Business Model

We generate revenue through online retail and wholesale sales of both our branded and GreatFoods It’s Vegan private label products, memberships, and vendor ad revenue from placement in our social media, emails, and website.  


We ensure our products are shipped in an environmentally-friendly cold shipper within 24-48 hours via UPS or other delivery services. 

How we are different


We Are Horizontally and Vertically Integrated

Imagine a world where buying your favorite plant-based products would be as simple as running to a nearby store or having them delivered right to your door. We are working towards making that a reality.


With our continued expansion, we aim to reach the level of big-box players that dominate the retail and wholesale space, differentiating ourselves as the only fully integrated plant-based organization in that market. Today, the online vegan retail market is highly fragmented, and no players are fully integrated plant-based enterprises.


Our ultimate goal is to cover everything, including online sales, brick and mortar retail, wholesale, logistics and distribution, manufacturing of our own private label line, sustainable packaging, and much more. 


And with our ever growing industry leading and proprietary data set of what sells, how fast, and to whom, we can quickly anticipate changes in the market to find new growth opportunities and stay ahead of the competition. 


THE MARKET


Vegan Foods Are More Popular Than Ever

The popularity of plant-based food over the past several years has shot up, translating to an explosive increase in sales.  Unlike 5 years ago, plant-based alternatives are now available in nearly every major fast food chain and grocer across the country. 


In the U.S. alone, the plant-based market grew 27% from 2019-2020 to $7 billion, predominately fueled by plant-based dairy, meats, and meals (source). 


In 2020, we saw huge increases in sales across several plant-based product categories.





T
he global plant-based food market is anticipated to reach a market size of $74.2 billion by 2027, expanding at a CAGR of 11.9% from 2020 to 2027 (Source).




Key drivers for this growth include:
  • Increased intolerances for animal protein
  • Growing urbanization with new consumer aspiration
  • Significant venture capital investments in plant-based product companies
  • Increasing vegan and flexitarian populations
  • The Covid-19 pandemic highlighting issues with meat, dairy, and pork manufacturing.

OUR TRACTION


Building an Enthusiastic Community of Plant-Based Consumers

We already have generated $3 million in revenue, with over 14k active customers. In addition, we have over 21k registered users on our site, over 72k Instagram followers, and an active email list of nearly 60k consumers - ALL ORGANICALLY ACQUIRED.

Our over 24k orders have an AOV of $120, and we have an estimated customer LTV of $500 and growing. 

WHY INVEST


Healthy Eating for a Healthier Planet

Our company was formed for the people and our planet. We want it to be funded BY the people so they can take an active part in our mission.


We strive to build out our infrastructure to become the destination for everybody, everywhere for everything vegan.


With $3 million in revenue already, we are ready to become the go-to destination for the multi-billion dollar vegan food market. 

Invest today to become part of the most important company in this century to ensure the sustainability of our people and our planet.

This means eligible StartEngine unitholders will receive a 10% bonus for any units they purchase in this offering.

Updates

Over $300K Raised In 10 Days!

6 days ago

We are truly honored to welcome 326 new investors to our GTFO It's Vegan Family.  We have now raised over $300k in just 10 days since launch.  We can't thank you enough for your contribution to help us realize our vision.

We are also very excited to announce our line of GTFO It's Vegan sashimi, including Tuna, Salmon, Sailfish and Calamari, landed safely at our warehouse this past weekend and will be available for sale shortly under our GreatFoods It's Vegan private label.  This line represents our largest and most extensive private label launch since our inception and will position us to become the leader in offering vegan sashimi to the U.S. market, including retail, wholesale, and foodservice.  

Together with our other previously launched private label lines, including fresh baked vegan goods (breads, brioches, croissants, and cookies), and samosas (vegetable, chick'n, beef n' cheese), GTFO It's Vegan continues to expand its line of private label offerings in key rapidly growing, yet underserved categories.  These private label lines will play a pivotal role in both our continued growth and increased profitability.

Thank you again to everyone for your continued confidence and support.
