One year report

On the first Saturday of February, 2018, we quietly opened our door to the public on Stargarderstraße 29.  It was a bright sunny but chilly day. Heejoo and I were so nervous if anyone would ever show up to our store but we were delighted that several customers visited our store and much more to our surprise made purchase of our products. From then on it has been one year and everyday we are still having the same experience.  We are taking an unknown journey with only the trust we have that in the end everything will all turn out to be just fine. Today I would like to report 3 topics as we reach our one year anniversary. First...

Beware the ides of March [First published 06.04.2018]

Month of March in Berlin was cold and wet. 3 out of 4 weeks was very miserable and the streets of Stargarder were not as lively as usual. It felt like most of the people on the streets were busy heading home instead of strolling the streets... Our second month of operation has passed and it was a mixed month. Although we had a slight increase in all our numbers we are not yet self sufficient. The BamGam number is also up from February. In March we were able to collect enough donation for 106 meals for a child compared to 88 meals donated in February. That’s over 20 percent increase! Hopefully we can hold this trend. April fools day...

Thoughts about the recyclability of our product... [First Published 07.03.2018]

When Heejoo and I first discussed the forming of Zoom Fresh, one of the topic was about the recyclability of our product. We knew that we will have to address the issues about the package wastes as we developed our product. We visited innovative stores such as “Original Unverpackt” which is a grocery store that tries not to create much plastic waste instead encourages users to bring their own container and buy cereals, liquid soaps in bulk. We were really inspired by their concept, and we wanted to create similar practice at our store. However, the system was much more complicated than we thought and since we had limited time and fund, we decided to open the store first and...

Bam! Gam! Thank you Ma’am...[First Published 25.02.2018]

This was our third full week in “Beta” testing stage and once again we have amazing news to report. Apart from the 3 children we were able to support from our 2 previous weeks of operation, this week we collected almost enough fund for 3 additional children to support for one week. It’s truly amazing because our actual sales are not growing this fast but they are mostly coming from the extra donations made by our customers. As the great Bowie sings it... Bam! Gam! Thank you Ma’am!
