overview


We know what it’s like to not feel good, so we became the change we needed


Our company’s story began out of necessity and turned into a passion project for our founder and mother of 5, Mary Molina. When her family hit hard times she began to rely on food assistance programs to feed her family. At the same time, her husband was trying to save money by eating off the dollar menu. This processed food wreaked havoc on her family's health, and later her husband developed gut health issues from antibiotics used before and after dental surgery. Mary and her husband tried every probiotic, yogurt, kefir, and even kimchi to resolve his gut health issues. Alas, nothing worked so Mary decided to tackle the problem on her own by working with probiotic manufactures to combined a spore-forming probiotic with her already vegan plant-based energy bars. Mary’s friends, family, and neighbors took notice and started asking her if they were available in local stores, Lola Snacks was born. 


Consumers are increasingly leaning towards plant-based options (source) to fill their snacking needs and because our probiotic energy bars don’t require refrigeration, they’re a great choice for snacking on the go, to get you through the day, and drastically boost gut health.


The Problem & our solution


Lola Snacks provides a better source of probiotics and prebiotics to improve gut health


We understand the stress of trying to eat healthy,  and know this problem is worse for the 72% of Americans who struggle with gut issues like IBS, Colitis, and Crohns (source). On average 60 to 70 million people are affected by all digestive diseases (source). We struggled with these issues too, so we created a line of simple, plant-based probiotic energy bars to power us through the day and improve our gut health. 

 

Lola Snacks replenish lost probiotics and nourish your gut’s microbiome to aid digestion and support a healthy gut microbiome. Our customers love the taste of our bars and also claim our snacks improved the symptoms of their gut issues.


The Market & our traction


Our products are perfect for the millions of Americans who are looking to address their nutritional needs with energy bars


Our fast-paced lives and a newfound focus on gut health and immunity created a new need for fast, functional food (source & source). This high demand caused the energy bar market to balloon to $13.4 billion in 2020 (source). Add in America’s increasing consumption of plant-based foods, and we believe we have the perfect combination to capitalize on this lucrative market (source). With Gut Health trending on social media, we believe more people are looking for ways to improve their gut health through healthy snacks and awareness (source). 


We have partnerships supplying HQ’s of Nike, Goldman Sacs, Citi Bank and Bank of America, and we continue to expand into corporate catering opportunities. Recently added to the assortment of large convenience channel distributors, Lola Snacks now has access to over 15,000 locations covering convenience stores, hospitality, food service, and universities. We are currently in consideration at retailers nationally, such as GIANT and Food Lion, and regionally, such as 7/11.


Our retail partners locations grow everyday, through our national distributors in the specialty, convenience, natural, and wholesale channels. Lastly, we are developing additional product lines to include new categories such as sugar-free.


Why Invest


We have the leadership and product to revolutionize functional snacks, all that’s missing is you


Lola Snacks embodies the American Dream and the hope for a healthier tomorrow. Mary created these bars for her family, and her business acumen transformed them into a company that survived the pandemic and that is starting to corner a billion-dollar market. Our snacks can give millions a healthy, gut-friendly option, and with your investment, we can do that for billions more. Help us take the “BS” out of “IBS” and invest in Lola Snacks today.

WHY STARTENGINE?

REWARDSWe want you to succeed and get the most out of your money by offering rewards and memberships!
SECUREYour info is your info. We take pride in keeping it that way!
DIVERSE INVESTMENTSInvest in over 200 start-ups and collectibles!

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.

With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.

At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.

Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.

StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.

For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.

For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.

Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.

Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.

Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
