The fayVen Story

After years of dealing with the bureaucratic red tape of government work, April decided to leave her career behind and start a small business of her own. She and her husband Aaron went all-in on a crazy idea that popped into April’s head… The Princess and The Popper, a gourmet popcorn company. Together they did popcorn for farmers’ markets, downtown events, and private parties, the popcorn was delicious and business was popping! But their dreams were crushed when they planned to open up a brick and mortar storefront and start popping full-time. You see, after three opportunities were denied for renting out a space, they had to resort to pop-up shops (pun intended) and rely exclusively on other business owners to invite them to collaborative shopping events. From these tough experiences, April realized that there was an even greater need for a business that connected mobile vendors without storefronts to local venue owners that had spare room for pop-up shops; these events, along with some other bad vendor experiences, inspired the creation of fayVen.

The fayVen logo has a few meanings and symbolism in it – the first being that the “Ven” in fayVen stands for both our Vendor and Venue customers – it is their fayVorite way to connect after all.

The second is the capital V stands for the fact that we are a veteran-owned, small business and proud of it.

The third is that April’s mom’s name is Faith but she always gets called Aunt Fay.

The fourth is that the lightning bolt is God’s (not-so-secret) name for April.

And last and coincidentally, the Urban Dictionary definition of fayven is: A beautiful, smart, young girl who always believes in herself and always knows what the right thing to do is. Don’t believe me? Look it up! https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=fayven

fayVen is addressing the need for more pop-up shops for the benefit of mobile business owners. Also, it is addressing the need for business owners who own or lease a space to help create additional revenue streams to keep their doors open longer by temporarily renting out unused space to these mobile vendors.

fayVen is the online platform that is desperately needed to create connections between vendors and venues and make booking incredibly easy.

We create opportunities for mobile vendors to connect with local venues and increase their collective reach through collaborative shopping, dining, and social experiences. For mobile vendors owners without traditional storefronts and local venues in need of additional revenue streams, fayVen simplifies event coordinating and booking, creates community engagement, and helps small businesses garner local support.
