Chakula Markets is a primary investment in the Together Systems African American Community development model. This supermarket is unique because it is operated for the sole purpose of re-building African- American communities. Unlike other cooperatives, where the business is owned and operated to maximize benefits for its consumers. Chakula Markets is purely operated to fund African American community development programs. Such as providing funding to African American entrepreneurs, incubating African-American businesses while removing systematically removing business from African-American communities who are a source of economic and social problems.
A Better Supermarket Model
Food expenditures account for over 30 percent of Americans monthly budget. This is why food business and suppliers are some of the wealthiest companies in the world. The average supermarket brings in $250,000 in revenue per day. 10% is the average profit after all expenses and liabilities are paid. This is $25,000 per day, per store that can be captured and injected into African-American communities. This is our plan with Chakula Markets.
- Delivery-Focused Supermarket
As a deliver focused grocery store, we are able to compete on a wide scale beyond a 10-mile radius.
- Adapting Automation
Contrary to popular belief, jobs don’t build wealth, (especially grocery store jobs), although investments build wealth. Therefore we will focus on increasing profits then using those profits to assisting and funding African Americans business ownership.
- Minimal Debt Rule
The average grocery store has a significant amount of debt, From real estate to business loans. Because we aren’t funded by banks or loans, we are able to return more money back to the community we are organized to serve.
