  • Funding Usage

    If MOX were to receive a grant funding of $150,000 as startup money, we would utilize it strategically to establish and grow our business. Here's a breakdown of how we would allocate the funds: 1. Equipment and Furnishings: - A portion of the grant would be dedicated to acquiring essential equipment and furnishings for the bar, kitchen, and customer seating areas. This might include bar equipment (blenders, shakers, glassware), kitchen appliances, tables, chairs, and other furniture required to create a comfortable and inviting environment for customers. 2. Renovations and Interior Design: - A portion of the funding would be allocated towards renovating the space to align with MOX's brand identity and create an aesthetically pleasing atmosphere. This could involve interior design elements, lighting fixtures, decorations, and any necessary refurbishments to ensure the space reflects the desired ambiance. 3. Inventory and Supplies: - Another significant portion of the grant would be allocated towards stocking up on ingredients, including fresh fruits, herbs, spices, mixers, and other necessary supplies. This would allow us to offer a diverse menu of mocktails and food items to cater to different customer preferences. 4. Marketing and Branding: - A portion of the funding would go towards marketing and branding efforts to create awareness and attract customers. This might include developing a visually appealing website, professional photography, printing marketing materials (like menus and business cards), and running targeted digital marketing campaigns to reach our target audience. 5. Staffing and Training: - A portion of the funding would be allocated to hire and train a skilled team, including bartenders, servers, chefs, and other necessary staff. This would ensure that we provide exceptional service and maintain the quality of mocktails and food offerings. 6. Licensing and Permits: - The grant funds would also cover the costs of obtaining necessary licenses and permits to legally operate the bar and comply with local regulations. 7. Reserve for Contingencies: - It is important to set aside a portion of the funding as a contingency reserve to handle unexpected expenses or fluctuations in the business environment. This reserve would provide a safety net to ensure the smooth operation of MOX during unforeseen circumstances. By utilizing the $150,000 grant funding strategically across these areas, MOX would be able to establish a strong foundation for the business, attract customers, and provide an exceptional non-alcoholic beverage experience. The aim would be to create a sustainable and successful venture that can thrive in the market and contribute to the growing demand for innovative and enjoyable mocktails.

  • Business Plan

    Here are the key aspects of our growth strategy: 1. Expansion of Physical Presence: Our immediate focus will be on expanding our physical presence by opening additional MOX locations in high-traffic areas of Las Vegas.

  • Self Identified Competition

    There are currently no competitors for a zero proof lounge in Las Vegas. The closest thing to this is a Coffee Shop called Cafe Lola that serves as an event space and serves coffee, sweets and similar food items. Thank you for considering MOX for funding and investing in our mocktail bar in Las Vegas. We are confident that we stand out from our competitors in several key ways, making us a worthy investment. First and foremost, MOX offers a unique and innovative concept as a mocktail bar. While there are many bars and lounges in Las Vegas, we are the first to focus exclusively on curating exceptional non-alcoholic beverages while providing an engaging and welcoming "third space" experience. This sets us apart from our competitors and allows us to cater to a growing demographic of individuals who are seeking a vibrant and social atmosphere without the inclusion of alcohol. Secondly, our emphasis on quality and creativity is what truly sets us apart. At MOX, we are committed to sourcing the finest ingredients and creating mocktails that are both visually stunning and delicious. Our team of expert mixologists is dedicated to pushing the boundaries of mocktail creation, ensuring that our customers have a memorable experience every time they visit. Furthermore, our commitment to inclusivity and diversity is a core value at MOX. As a female, Latina-owned business, we bring a unique perspective and cultural influence to the mocktail bar scene. We believe in creating a welcoming and inclusive environment that celebrates diversity and encourages individuals from all backgrounds to come together and enjoy our offerings. Lastly, our location in Las Vegas provides us with a strategic advantage. As a city known for its entertainment and nightlife, Las Vegas attracts millions of visitors each year. By positioning ourselves in this vibrant and dynamic city, we have the opportunity to tap into a large customer base and establish MOX as the go-to destination for mocktails in the area. Considering these factors, funding administrators, grant writers, and investors should invest in MOX instead of our competitors because we offer a unique concept, a commitment to quality and creativity, a focus on inclusivity and diversity, and a strategic location. By investing in MOX, you would be supporting a business that is poised to make a lasting impact on the mocktail industry and provide a memorable experience for customers in Las Vegas.
