Baba Love Organics storefront opens Friday!

September 15, 2020

A little over a year after winning the 2019 Techstars Startup Week Dayton Early Risers Pitch Competition, Vaniti Byrd is opening her first downtown Dayton storefront for Baba Love Organics.

“It feels crazy to think I was pitching my budding business just this time last year,” she said.

Baba Love Organics’ first downtown storefront will open this Friday, Sept. 18, at 116 W. 5th St., with a pink ribbon-cutting ceremony at 5p.

As we shared in the spring, Vaniti kicked off 2020 with ambitious goals for her plant-based beauty co Baba Love Organics, and the COVID19 pandemic hasn’t slowed her down.

When she launched her new Green Beauty Box on Earth Day, it sold out in 22 minutes.

Last week, she launched her Kiva campaign to continue to scale through COVID19. It was funded in five days.

The space for the new Baba Love store formerly housed LORE and Beaute Box, both other woman-owned businesses.

“I’ve gotten so much love from everyone who supports my business, they’re excited about the store,” she said. “Everything is moving, so we’re doing good.”
