22-Year-Old Opens Sol Sips, Affordable Vegan Restaurant In Brooklyn

By Posted on 59 2 m read

On a mission to provide her community with the option of an affordable vegan lifestyle, Francesca Chaney opened Sol Sips. The vegan restaurant located in Bushwick, Brooklyn operates on a sliding scale, allowing customers to pay what they can afford. Every Saturday, Sol Sips offer a full meal and beverage ranging anywhere from $7 to $15 from 11 A.M. to 4 P.M. Francesca wanted Sol Sips to be a place where not only the community could afford to eat, but her friends as well.

“I didn’t want it to be a thing where my own personal friends were not able to come and eat here because they felt like it was expensive,” says the 22-year-old.

Prior to opening Sol Sips, Francesca was a full-time student, working three jobs, and trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle. After coming to the realization that there were not many healthy food options available in her community, she found herself making her own organic drinks and begin selling them at her cousin’s apothecary and local festivals. After establishing her own customer base, she saw the opportunity to create something great.

“I guess there was this assumption that I was doing this to be a hero or something,” Francesca explains. “[But] it was for me first and foremost. Then it extended to the community because just living in East New York in high school… and knowing that there were not options for me to have a healthy vegetarian meal outside of my home… just because the option isn’t there doesn’t mean that we’re not seeking the option.”

According to Elle, when it comes to offering advice to young entrepreneurs, Francesca Chaney suggests finding your own source of support. She says there are no “no” people in her life right now as everyone around her is rooting for her and her business.

    Thanks for the helpful write-up. It is also my belief that mesothelioma cancer has an extremely long latency interval, which means that indication of the disease would possibly not emerge until eventually 30 to 50 years after the initial exposure to mesothelioma. Pleural mesothelioma, that is the most common variety and has an effect on the area throughout the lungs, might cause shortness of breath, chest pains, and also a persistent cough, which may lead to coughing up blood.
