The idea for Slop Shoppe began with a simple question: How can we bring unique sandwiches with farm fresh ingredients to the people of Mystic, CT? At Slop Shoppe we believe that the freshest food comes from local farmers. With this concept in mind, we will create extremely unique sandwiches that will give you a taste of what New England has to offer. Our bread will be freshly baked and all of our produce will be farm fresh. We will make everything we can "in house," including sauces, drinks, desserts and sides. As with any food business, there are many costs, such as kitchen equipment, permits, design & architecture, marketing, POS and rent. We would like to start this process by reaching out to our friends, family and community to raise money for Slop Shoppe. There is no place in Mystic where you can get a delicious sandwich with unique ingredients. Slop Shoppe will fill that gap. We will provide flavorful sandwiches in an inviting atmosphere where we will warm your belly and your heart.
ALL OF OUR SANDWICHES WILL BE UNIQUE IN EVERY WAY
As owners and business partners, we will run Slop Shoppe and continue building our name. We have been friends for almost 10 years, and our love for food has always been a huge part of what makes our friendship so special. We love to cook and we want our food to bring people together as it has done for us. Friendship is our bond and food our common ground. We're excited for the opportunity to bring you flavors you've never had before and expand the food community in Mystic, CT.
Yes, a majority of our sandwiches will have pork in them. We want to make sure that all your sandwiches are made with the healthiest pigs in town. Therefore, all of our pork will be locally raised, pastured and hormone free. This will make for a better-tasting pig, not to mention an extremely yummy sandwich.
IN RETURN FOR YOUR CONTRIBUTION

Risks and challenges
As with the opening of any new food business, there are some risks and challenges. The build-out of our location will be a challenge. The proper kitchen equipment will be needed, as well as permits and licensing. We don't expect any delays once we set an opening date. Making sure we hire the right staff will also be very important to us, as we need to make sure that the customer service is the best in New England and that our sandwiches are made quickly and efficiently for our guests.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
