Here’s part of their pitch. Click over to read the full story:
After carving out our spot in the Downtown Market at 45 S. French Broad Ave. for over three years, the time has come to move out and move on. Serious changes are in motion after the sale of the building, and we have a potential new spot –still in the neighborhood– that we’d like to transition into. In order to stay in business, we need to raise money to move, upgrade equipment, and transform a former office space into a new home for our kitchen and customers!
Our little restaurant began with the purpose of providing outrageously cheap and ridiculously delicious food for Asheville folk. We’re a tried and true locals’ spot. We’ve stuck to the KISS principle (Keep It Simple, Stupid) and proven its success. As all of our regulars know, we’ve done specactular things with severely limited equipment and space. A new location with greater visibility means more traffic, which leads to the necessity of upgrading certain peices of equipment to handle the demands of higher volume. (We want an espresso machine that doesn’t need to be fixed all the time!)
With this move, we will finally have the opportunity to refine what we have built and tested over time. We’d like to add housemade sodas to our concept, and offer more sweets and baked goodies to accompany our coffee. We plan to trim down the food menu and keep the chicken salad sandwich and pizza as the flagship items. (We know y’all would riot in the streets if we took either of those away!!) With a shift in focus toward the beverage side, we’ll simplify our long list of prep work and have an easier time training employees. (Yes, more than one!)
