Campaign Description

Pachamama Soul Flavour Emporium has opened its doors in the Southeast of Calgary and we are eager to host all of you in our vibrant space. As everything is uncertain during the pandemic, we thought it would be reassuring to have some extra financial support to cushion us through the turbulence! By receiving the donations from Boostr, our family business will be able to focus more on how we can give back to our neighbours, our city, our customers, and the planet. As most of you know it can be difficult starting a new business in the food industry, so any support received will allow us to thrive confidently while supplying our community with body, mind and soul nourishment.

Pachamama Soul love story

People often ask us why we decided to start this adventure together.
First and foremost, we actually really like each other!
We love spending time together. Not just as mother, daughters and sisters,
but as friends that you've known your whole life.
All of us crave travelling the world and giving back while we do so.

We wanted to find a way to be able to be of service steadily while spending our days doing something that we all share a passion for...
feeding our community delicious delicacies in a beautiful setting!

We recognized long ago that our family's love for all things food-related was extraordinary. We have an insatiable desire to gather for all occasions and for no occasions.
We aim to create that feeling of togetherness that comes whenever we would entertain and feed our families, friends, and often strangers our carefully curated plant-based soul food. Whatever kitchen we find ourselves in, with whatever ingredients we can find, we come together, each bringing our distinctive talents and flair to the table.

Pachamama Soul Flavour Emporium
is an inspiring, uplifting and inclusive space
to come indulge in irresistible foods, beverages and snacks.
It is a family-run business that ensures to give you a sense of home,
while our fusion of cultures and flavours makes you feel like you’re travelling the world. We invite everyone to come to experience the cosy, colourful ambience of our Café Market.

Our family decided opening up our business in the Southeast of Calgary would be ideal, as there is nothing else of the sort in the area. In order to get a Gluten-free, whole food, vegan meal in the city, you used to have to drive downtown to make that a reality. Now that our dream has come to fruition, we spend our days spreading awareness about all of the perks associated with a plant-based life. 

We will be opening a patio on the sunny sidewalk outside our front door, where you can have a crafty cocktail or earthy elixir while visiting with a friend in the fresh air.

Our kids' section is a prime spot for your little ones to keep themselves entertained with conscious books, toys and colouring.

Kindness and equality of all beings is one of the main values in our service approach. Our goal is to nourish our customers while leaving minimal, to no impact on our planet and all of its inhabitants.

You can guarantee that any takeout containers, cutlery, etc, will be entirely compostable or at least recyclable at our business. We will constantly be seeking alternatives to any method or materials that could be more eco-friendly.

The market portion of our cafe will boast a variety of locally crafted edible goods and products, which in turn supports many up and coming, as well as established artisans.

As there is uncertainty about what will happen with the pandemic and future lock-downs, we have a plan in place that will ensure the safety of our customers and the success of our business. We will be able to continue welcoming customers during any potential lockdowns due to our takeout option, our patio space that can accommodate customers during restricted indoor dining times, and all of our safety protocols that will be followed.

Aside from the goal of creating a successful business to generate revenue, our heart's desire lies in the vision of promoting a healthier lifestyle for everyone who walks through our doors. Whether it be through our intricately curated dishes and beverages, our connections with the customers, or the uplifting energy that will fill our space, we fully intend to make an impact that extends far and wide beyond our small cafe.

By receiving extra financial assistance from the ATB Boostr Campaign, we can extend our reach of donations to a wide variety of groups in need, with suggestions from our customers. If we were to reach our goal of 10,000$ raised, we could begin funding sooner to organizations involving water protection, animal protection, humanitarian projects, and anywhere else that could be benefited from our help.

It is with great love that we embark on this journey together, to spread awareness on how fulfilling a plant-based lifestyle can be. We hope to spread out a ripple effect of inspiration.

Love,
The Pachamama Soul crew

Emily Pister

owner

Emily is the firstborn baby of Kim Rokosh, and sister to Gabby Pister. Some of her favourite things are Dancing, writing, reading, road trips, snowboarding, sunrises, seeing new places, cooking, feeding people and always making a sincere effort to enjoy this existence just a little more all the time and be able to share that enjoyment. The powerful trio has joined forces in a whole new way to bring Pachamama Soul Flavour Emporium to fruition. Since finishing High School, Emily has just followed her heart's desire to dip her toes into new experiences whenever they present themselves to her. Between investing her time into her passions, hobbies and travels, she worked a variety of different jobs to be able to support her incessant thirst for adventure. After a few years of bouncing around this playground world, the mother and daughters narrowed their focus on growing roots in such a way that would benefit them, as well as everyone they interacted with. Their love for plant-based living partnered with their love of community and hosting people in their sacred space, and finally blossomed into a bountiful idea of opening a business based on the love! Emily is looking forward to meeting all of our customers, hopefully having an uplifting connection, or simply the pleasure of providing you with a sensational creation of ours!

Gabby is Kims youngest daughter and sister to Emily. The relationship dynamic is not usually obvious with the 3 ladies, because the bond and friendship have surpassed any mother or daughter labels. We all help keep each other in check :) Gabby is an avid hiker, is getting into snowboarding, and is just an all-around nature enthusiast. She has a deep appreciation and acknowledgement for the subtleties of the natural world and takes any opportunity she can get to go immerse herself in a juicy landscape. One of her many talents is DJ'ing, which she is more frequently being invited to do at various locations across BC and Alberta. Her beautifully curated music mixes receive a lot of positive feedback and have everyone moving on the dancefloor. When she isn't reading, exploring, organizing, or just generally making someone's day better; you can find her at our café putting her love into ensuring the most picturesque finishing touches are added to every order.

Kim is a mother and a wonderful friend to both Emily and Gabby. She is an amazing wife to her husband Cory, and stepmother to his 2 children. She has always lived a spontaneous, exciting lifestyle and effortlessly convinces her friends and family to do the same. She is a vibrant storyteller, writer, artist, chef, traveller, and connoisseur of all things bliss. Her daily devotion to meditation gives her the mindset to be able to balance the endless hustle-bustle that is her existence. Between caring and cooking for her family, earning a living, practising yoga, enjoying time with our fur baby Luna, and always bettering herself, she took the initiative to begin brainstorming what is now a reality; Pachamama Soul Flavour Emporium. She is our main glue to the household, and a constant inspiration for all she interacts with. You will find her with a soothing smile on her face as you enter our comforting, cozy space.

Approaching opening date!

Hello to all of our community, customers, family and friends. The 3 of us would love to welcome you to our home away from home, Pachamama Soul Flavour Emporium. Not only is it a café, but also a market, craft cocktail lounge, vegan/GF snack shack, and ultimately a place to come rest your feet while you take in all the dainty details. 

Sept 16th 2021 update: We have just passed all of our inspections, and completed renovations. We were set to open our doors to the public the week of September 20th, 2021, but due to recent Covid regulations, there will be a delay in our full opening for dining in. As soon as we decide how to proceed, we will be informing the public through our social media platforms and website. We will be diligent with posting regular updates on our Instagram and website in order to keep our guests informed on the status of our opening. 

During any pandemic lockdowns, we intend to keep our market up and running for sales, as well as take-out orders and potentially delivery as well.

Thank you for understanding, hope to see you soon!
