H3 Enterprises' HipHopSodaShop is a business concept that is grabbing the imagination of people across the nation. "We believe that a business that reinvests in its community must always have the ability to flourish," Dr. Benjamin Chavis, CEO and President said. "The staggering early returns from Tampa certainly reaffirm that belief. Our mission is to empower young people through investment, education and economic development. The HipHopSodaShops are one such avenue where they can begin to experience that empowerment," Chavis concluded.

H3 Enterprises, Inc. has a strong community reach. Dr. Chavis, the former head of the NAACP, explained that Hip-Hop overcame the crucible of poverty and became an indelible cultural phenomenon.

"The Company is right on schedule for our components of success," stated Brian Peters, one of the founding members of H3 Enterprises. "It was never just about, 'Let's put up a food place and make a lot of money,'" Peters said. "It was about gradually building the perfect place to call home for Hip-Hop, a place that can teach our youth the lesson of empowerment through investment, and have it set up so that it can be repeated the world over. Anyone that comes to Tampa will see that we've accomplished the toughest aspects of that mission, and that we're now well on our way to an international triumph for the Hip-Hop culture."
