Another Benchmark- Hit!

Posted By on Fri, May 2, 2008 at 9:07 PM

New Orleans Food Co-op proudly announced their latest membership total today — a total of 331 members and counting. Having exceeded their goal of 300 by May 1st, this puts them on target to open in the proposed healing center on St. Claude in the Marigny/Bywater area. The group’s next set goal is to increase their membership to 600 by October, with a total goal of 1000 members by the time they open next year.

With the assistance of a grant from Entergy and Food Co-op 500, the group has already obtained a start-up budget estimate, a timeline and a market study. Currently it’s working on creating a preliminary floor plan and estimation of equipment costs as well as a formal business plan.
