SOKONI is a commerce development platform for local, minority and woman owned brands. 

Based out of Chicago, our in-store and online solutions help strengthen the retail, ecommerce and distribution acumen of our local businesses. 

Our goal is to create distribution opportunities and adequately prepare growing businesses for increased distribution in new channels and new markets.


We do this through education/ curriculum (37 Oaks University), consulting, systems and many other tools. 

Join us in supporting their growth! 


If you are in Washington DC, visit us at The Pop Up Collaborative. If not, no worries, you can support these businesses by purchasing through the SOKONIstore.com ecommerce site.

  • Hines Brines

    Hines Brines was started by Samuel Hines in the suburbs of Chicago, IL. He wanted to introduce his son to exotic and different flavors at an early age. And that is why he started blending spices. Through his experimentation and passion for cooking, he  has curated an array of spices for you to enjoy. A minority owned business. 

  • Peace & Love Healing Bath Salts

    Since Reshonda Jacobs - Smith was a young girl, her health has always been important, and she enjoyed helping people heal the natural way. She didn't like taking medication (or seeing her loved ones take medication), so she often researched and used natural and healthy alternatives.
