SOFRANCISCO... What if your grocery shopping looked like this?
... or like this?
STORY & CONCEPT
I am Charlotte, a parisian entrepreneur who moved to San Francisco a year ago. I am passionate about qualitative and design products and I have a materials engineering background as well as a strong experience in one high end parisian Brand .
I was amazed and surprised to see when I arrived how people living in San Francisco enjoy wheeled products and also the finest groceries. As the idea of SOFRANCISCO had been growing in my brain for some time, I decided to conduct a market survey among people living in big walkable cities around the world. The study revealed that one person out of two walk to go and buy their groceries and many of them are interested in having a reliable and trendy personal shopping cart. This is how I decided to create an ultra modern and upscale product that fits the lifestyle of all these people.
Inspired by Paris and SoMa and born in San Francisco, SOFRANCISCO reinvents your grocery shopping experience. SOFRANCISCO is the first company to provide high end and trendy personal shopping carts to the retail market. Besides the fact that SOFRANCISCO offers a fancy urban product, it is also an Eco-friendly product. It is lightweight, handy, it offers a very smooth ride and has all the pockets and compartments you need.
SOFRANCISCO shopping carts are very different from the ones that you can find in the actual market since they have an upscale design, an increased quality and consequently a higher price range.
Thanks to your donations with the indiegogo campaign, I will be able to fund the R&D and our first batch of production.
The 3D product design is completed as well as the choice of the materials. The prototyping phase of the product as well as the first batch of production will be launched with the funds raised through the indiegogo campaign.The production supplier is well aware of the project and is ready to start whenever SOFRANCISCO gets funded.
SOFRANCISCO will not make any profit from this first funds raising. The goal is simply to launch the brand WITH YOU and FOR YOU.
SOFRANCISCO helps you to carry your grocery goods while walking with no effort.
It is designed to be a high end and very qualitative product on its market. Each piece of it is chosen keeping in mind this quality concept. The product should also be as light as possible while keeping its strengths and features and it will come in many different colors according to seasonal trends.
The first SOFRANCISCO model has been designed to achieve a balance between car exterior design and modernity. Pure lines, lightweight materials and high end quality for a state-of-the-art urban lifestyle.
SOFRANCISCO bags are pushed but can be pulled as well simply by adjusting the handle to the upright position.
Among all the features that SOFRANCISCO has to offer you will find:
Two different openings. One at the top for an effortless access when you shop and one at the front to make the unloading much easier.
Once unloaded all the SOFRANCISCO bags are able to be folded flat. And thanks to its crease resistant fabrics SOFRANCISCO bags still look nice after you unfold them again.
A separated insulated bag that can be attached to the handle is also provided with this SOFRANCISCO model.
You will also find many compartments such as an external pocket for an easy access to your personal items.
Inside the main bag you can store your glass bottles safely at the bottom of the product and protect your fragile items in a gusset pocket at the top. You will also find a cup holder to make your walk to the store even more enjoyable.
WHY YOUR HELP SO IMPORTANT TO SOFRANCISCO AND HOW TO BECOME AN AMBASSADOR FOR THE BRAND
I need 60,000 dollars to fund the Research & Development costs as well as the first batch of production. SOFRANCISCO supplier is well aware of the project and is ready to start whenever SOFRANCISCO gets funded.
The R&D will be conducted by a european company working on such high end projects for famous luxury brands. The supplier will also oversee operations in the manufacturing process. They are also really looking forward to it and are passionate about SOFRANCISCO project.
Working on an upscale product implies making partnerships with first-class suppliers and this is why I need your help to continue this venture.
No profits will be made from the indiegogo campaign, the goal is simply to launch the brand with your help.
Not only will your contribution bring the brand to the next level but with the rewards you will receive, you will also become an ambassador for SOFRANCISCO when wearing your SOFRANCISCO products.
The wait before you receive the product rewards may sound a little long but in order to get the best finalized product I need some time to work closely with the manufacturer and make sure the product passes all the highest quality tests. And the holiday season will be the most appropriate time to receive your gift reward!
I can't thank you enough for bringing SOFRANCISCO to the next level!
THE FUTURE OF THE BRAND
SOFRANCISCO is an ambitious brand with a strong identity that plans to export worldwide and will always keep in mind to produce high end quality and Eco-Friendly products with a trendy look.
The product described here is the first model of SOFRANCISCO but there will be others in the near future such as a Parisian SOFRANCISCO with a baguette pocket and many other features to come according to the needs and requirements of customers. SOFRANCISCO will listen to you to improve the products and even to create models according to your needs. Of course SOFRANCISCO will always keep in mind to offer a smooth ride for an upscale product.
