What's Good, Fresno? will take you to the unknown, overlooked, and under-appreciated restaurants in Fresno.
It's ironic that in a region that supplies one-third of the world's produce we find ourselves overwhelmed by chain restaurants and mediocre food. It pains us to watch as small, locally-owned eateries serving excellent fare go unnoticed and go under. This must end!
What's Good, Fresno? showcases offerings unique to Fresno and the surrounding communities. We strive to broaden palettes and support often unrecognized local talent. The aim is to shed light on hidden culinary treasures of the San Joaquin Valley. Join us as we enjoy the bounty of what's good in Fresno!
Our Guidelines for Restaurants:
1. No more than two locations.
2. Max price for meal is $20 per person.
3. Must have tasty food.
What is your pledge going towards?
Food: $750 = (3 meals* $20*12 episodes)
Equipment: $1300 (cameras, editing software, and recording media.)
Production and Rewards: $450 ( Hot Pockets, Red Vines, and a 24hr loop of Xena for our editor, and the rewards for you.)
With Kickstarter, it's all or nothing. We must meet 100% of our goal by the deadline in order to receive any funding for this project. Every pledge, no matter how small, will go a long way to helping us achieve this. And don't forget to tell your family, friends, pets, frenemies, whoever about What's Good Fresno. Word-of-mouth is some of the best advertising money can't buy!
