Black Bread Co. Invites All To Invest And Reap The Benefits Of Backing The Next Big Thing In The Bread Industry.
Black Bread Co, the first Black-Owned gourmet sliced bread company, extends an invitation to everyone to take part in shaping the company's bright future by investing in the firm. The rapidly growing firm is currently offering the general public a 10% equity stake in the company.
The Black Bread Company is the first ever Black-owned sliced bread company in the world. The firm is owned and operated by three longtime friends from the south-side of Chicago; Mark Edmond (Founder, CEO), Jamel Lewis (Co-Founder, President), and Charles Alexander (Co-Founder, COO). These three Black men are thriving to inspire other minorities to be unafraid to disrupt industries where they have none or minimum access to ownership.
The idea for the company began after Mark was in the bread aisle at the grocery store looking to be more conscious about how he was spending money on groceries. “I actually was Googling every single bread brand in the store,” Edmond said. “After about 35, 45 minutes, out of frustration, I left. And that’s when I called Charles and got my best friend Jamel on the line and from there, The Black Bread Co. was born.”
These founders all come to BBC from different career fields. Mark is a serial entrepreneur, owns a real estate construction company & founder of Pokatidy popcorn. Jamel is a nationally recognized recording artist, brand developer, and marketing guru. Charles is a Communications Professor & founder of the non-profit, Speak Hope.
The first ever Black-owned gourmet sliced bread company — ‘The Black Bread Company’, is officially offering shares of equity to the public. The Black Bread Company was just recently valued at over 50 million dollars. They created this company to build generational wealth in marginalized communities, and opening their company to the public is a great first step in upholding their promise!
According to the company's management, the minimum buy-in for shares is $250. "We were intentional with having a low minimum in order to give everyone an opportunity to buy shares regardless of their economic status," says Alexander. ”It is our hope that everyone, regardless of race, gender, or economic class, will join our Breadwinners community as investors,”
"Over a thousand investors and over $930,000 dollars in investments, so now our community officially has a stake of ownership in our company," Jamel declares.
