Help Multi-Passionate Entrepreneur, Latisha Daring, Launch Greedi Vegan in Bed-Stuy

By  | 


If you’ve been reading my blog since its early days, you may recall me shining light on one of my favorite Brooklyn entrepreneurs, Latisha Daring. She and her husband, Colin Daring, were my first examples of Black excellence in the form of entrepreneurship when I moved to New York City in the early 2000’s. As owners of the dopest boutique in the borough, Pieces of Brooklyn, Latisha and Colin made entrepreneurship look effortlessly chic as they single-handedly helped to define what we now know globally as “Brooklyn style.”

As a wife and mother with an infectious entrepreneurial spirit, Latisha has kept her creativity fueled consistently since closing the doors to her highly-respected boutique. Today, I’m excited to share her latest venture, Greedi Vegan. After working in fashion for almost 29 years, paired with a true passion for providing customers with unique memorable experiences, Latisha launched Greedi Vegan, her first casual vegan take-out restaurant, in Crown Heights, Brooklyn.

As totally expected, the community welcomed Greedi Vegan with open arms in 2018. In less than a year’s time, they’ve outgrown the space and need our support to help the business expand in Bedford-Stuyvesant.

“I’ve combined my love for healthy food with global, culinary experiences from my travels and the response has been beautifully overwhelming. We didn’t anticipate the need for expansion to happen so soon, but it’s a good ‘problem’ for a new restaurant to have. We look forward to serving more customers through our new, larger location in Bed-Stuy and appreciate your support,” said Latisha Daring, Founder of Greedi Vegan.

Full disclosure: As a Bed-Stuy resident for many years now, I may or may not have very personal reasons for wanting to see Latisha not only meet, but exceed her crowd-sourcing goal. Come on…Can you really blame me, though?! 🙂
