A Beautiful Historic Soda Fountain in a 1920s building where you can learn the history of Ice Cream in America and taste it too!
Howdy folks! Who wants ICE CREAM?!
Are you excited about great ice-cream, beautiful historic architecture and old-fashioned fun?
If you are, I hope you'll join me in kickstarting the opening of this unique time machine experience - C.K.Farnsworth's Soda Fountain and Luncheonette, an authentic old-fashioned ice cream palace of delights in an original 1920s storefront that is like a Working Museum! Fitted with top notch equipment from a company that has built and restored soda fountains since 1917, it is sure to be as much a treat for the eyes as the tastebuds!
C.K. Farnsworth's will be located in a quaint little neighborhood in Altadena, California, situated among mom and pop shops. I have already negotiated leasing the location.

What will these Kickstarter funds go directly for?
1) Locating, and restoring the Historic equipment to re-create this working Museum in which you can not only look at the displays, but, in an imersive experience you can also TASTE the results!
2) Your rewards for backing my Kickstarter.
* Through lots of hard work and saving I have put aside enough funds for all of my GENERAL BUSINESS EXPENSES: my business license, permits, inspections, deposit for location lease, and soda fountain memorabilia for decor.
Risks and challenges
Businesses are hard to fund, and public interest may fluctuate over time making it difficult to keep the doors open.
With your help I will be able to create this wonderful space.
Once created It will be up to me to make it a vibrant and culturally significant entity.
Since this is a "Working Museum" offering an immersive experience, it will be easier to promote interest and attendance through the many special events and entertainment that will be hosted at the Soda Fountain Museum!
The Museum will not only serve up your favorite scoops and sips, but will also function as a classic luncheonette counter with soups, sandwiches, and blue plate specials available for lunch and dinner.
Special nights with live music, and seasonal ice cream flavors will also be had at C. K. Farnsworth's.
Great entertainment will make us your nostalgic oasis away from the hum-drum of the daily routine in a space that transports you to your happy place! Our 1920's style soda jerk uniforms will also put you in the mood for your heart's content in a sundae dish, a soda glass, or on a cone.
Recorded music from the 1920s and '30s will always be in the air, and anyone with happy feet is welcome to "cut a rug" as I will make sure the floor is smooth and dance-able!
Moms and Dads, get your camera ready for the special Soda Jerk University private party option, where kids can learn to be a soda jerk for the day.
And don't forget C. K. Farnsworth's Ukulele Nights where patrons can bring a Uke (or borrow one) and participate in a beginning Ukulele Class while enjoying your favorite ice cream treat.
Not only a fascinating "Museum of Ice Cream and Soda Fountains," but also a great place for a quick bite, a fun date, children's outings or bring the whole family!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
