From The Founder May 2023 Update

Product Page New Look

I am excited to share what Korean Convenience has been working on the past month.  We strive to create a community where people are inspired to learn more about each other.  Everyday we manage food allergies, do more to solve environmental issues, fight food insecurities, and find Korean snacks and grocery products as easy as possible. 

First off, I concluded practicing in the Los Angeles Cleantech Founder Business Accelerator and have now transitioned to their six-month Equity Innovation Program.  Learn more about LACI here.  The focus on building a strong foundation, offering transparency and creating milestones has been so valuable.  

We’re now on Linkedin!  Follow the Korean Convenience page to find out more about us, get the latest updates, and future job opportunities.

May is food allergy awareness month don’t forget to “Turn It Teal” and be an ally by sharing the stories, events, and resources with your network.  You can find resources on the FARE, or the Allergic Living website.

Speaking of food allergy advocacy, I’m excited to share what’s new and what’s coming to the Korean Convenience app and website.  I would love to read your thoughts on the new changes!  

Product Tab Information

The new design tackles customer concerns head-on without needing to scroll.  The product: overview, ingredients, and nutrition tabs offer FASTER fact checking on product labels:

– Calories, sugar, protein, and total fat at a glance 

– Simplified ingredient information 

– Recommendation tab offers additional Korean snack products

Our team is working on even more features to give you more product label information. On every product you will be able to see if a product is labeled or certified as gluten free, vegan, etc. We don’t have 100% product coverage yet, so if you come across a product that needs updating, please do let us know by leaving a quick comment down below. This will help us improve Korean Convenience for everyone.  More to come on this soon!

With that being said, I must give credit where it’s due. Shoutout to Brandon the website designer, for KNOCKING this out of the park. Check him out on Instagram @bdot868.

What Coming Up Next?

Over the next few months, you’ll see more highly requested features on the Korean Convenience app and website. These include being able to reset your username profile (in case you forgot which account you set up), better searching within the Korean Convenience app (more products means better subcategories and categories), and being able to find and buy Korean food products that fit your dietary lifestyle.

I also want to thank everyone who has supported Korean Convenience by subscribing to the Korean Convenience website and providing your mentorship and support. A tremendous amount of effort and resources go into keeping Korean Convenience as accurate and helpful as possible, and your contributions help us do that work and add new features for years to come.

Final Thoughts

As part of our commitment to making Korean Convenience as useful and easy to use as possible, I really want to know:

What’s one thing keeping you from using the Korean Convenience app and website more?

You can reply directly to this blog post. Keep it anonymous and be as honest as you’d like – after managing shellfish allergies and nut sensitivities, I am as flexible as gumby!

Founder Headshot

Last but certainly not least: I believe that everyone should be able to find Korean snacks and grocery products that fits their dietary requirements. This couldn’t have been done without the consistent support from friends, family, and mentors who have joined Korean Convenience, and everyone who has shared the app with others! THANK YOU AGAIN!
