About this project

The new facade
The new facade

We are hosting this campaign to raise money for the equipment we’ll need to make amazing drinks for our neighborhood and expand our menu to add a variety of burgers, fresh french fries and dinner specials. We also want to add a salad bar.But the equipment isn’t everything. We want to change the layout so groups can gather to have meetings or just sit and knit. We also want to have smaller spots where students can study and our local authors can sit and write the next great American novel or screenplay. We want to be a community gathering place again. We have a lot of great things we want to do to update and improve our space for our guests.

The famous F-bomb

Yummy tomato basil soup.

A chicken salad wrap.

And we can’t forget our delicious coffees.

With the successful completion of this Kickstarter campaign, construction on Flavour should finish and equipment will be purchased by April. We plan to be open to the public by June 2014 and get back to being part of the com.

What if the sky opens and the internet heaven rain down a lot of extra funding? By all means keep contributing to Flavour’s til the end of the campaign! Additional funds raised will speed up the renovations and upgrades. 

Risks and challenges

Starting a new business from the ground up is difficult. However, we were open for 7 years before the fire and had an established customer base. If we reopen our doors our hope is that they will come back and that not too much time has past and we were forgotten.

Acquiring licenses, choosing the best equipment for our needs and finding just the right employees will be some of our biggest hurdles. There is always the possibility of more construction delays, permit delays and unforeseeable obstacles but we will find a way or we will make one! We are determined to bring Flavour back and be a place that serves amazing coffee and delicious conversation.
