Jubilee Fund investors support small business to achieve success.
In 2002, Jubilee Fund investors supported a small business for a sole proprietor operating as Organic Planet. The business was an immediate success, and it was determined an expansion was necessary to open a deli across the street from the existing store.
The expansion experienced setbacks, including cost overruns that severely compromised cash flow and caused suppliers to call in their receivables.
Five workers were determined to revive the business. They formed and opened the Organic Planet Worker Co-op in May 2003 at 877 Westminster Ave. The Co-op provides premium quality organic produce, bulk goods, local meat and other grocery items with a unique deli component offering organic take-out to an environmentally and health-conscious clientele. They try to support local producers as much as possible.
