Hey there! Erica and Olivia here.
We are the co-owners and founders of Make It Vegan. This is for those of you who like to get to know the people making your food, or if you are just bored, looking for something to read on the toilet.
First things first, how long have we been vegan? Erica first went vegan in 2015 and I (Olivia) went vegan in 2019. Erica was actually the person that helped me become vegan. And with that plus our love for food and each other, sparked this whole journey.
We met back in 2019 at a dance event held at the old bar Pride & Swagger (so sad it’s gone!). Erica was just being their cute, dorky self, and I (Olivia) couldn’t help but notice. So of course, I went up to them and made a total fool of myself. Obviously, somehow it worked, and now we have been together almost 4 years! Now living together in a cute little apartment, with our cats and Jake the dog.
Who woulda thought all of that would lead to all of this!
The journey here has been a long one, but it has been fantastic and absolutely worth it all! Getting to share our food with y’all has been a dream of ours since we first made a meal together. And the fact that we have made it this far is beyond anything we ever imagined.
We started this business in the midst of the pandemic, hoping to make vegan food more accessible to all and to show the word what vegan food can do! It started out just as a small meal prep service. But as word got out and people tried our food, we started growing, and FAST!
We began branching out to do more catering, pop-up events and even got the chance to donate our services to the Animal Grant Makers and meet Governor Polis and the wonderful First Gentleman, Marlon.
And now, after 1 year of all that hard work, we have made it to having our very own location for all to enjoy! Allowing us to offer you a cozy dine-in experience or grab yourself some take out.
Thanks for all your support and if you finished reading this, thanks for being here. We love you all and couldn’t have made it this far without the support of our community.
And update, we are engaged now! Thought we should tell y‘all lol
Alright, that’s enough outta us, now let’s Make It Vegan!
