Thanks for stopping by Chez Franc’s Kickstarter page! We have worked for nearly two years developing a delicious hot dog concept. Now our dream is about to come true! Dan and Jacquetta met when she staged (“stage” is a fancy food-world word for internship) at the Michelin-starred restaurant where Dan worked as Sous Chef. One day Dan shared that his passion is making hot dogs, and the idea stayed with Jacquetta. Several months after the stage ended, Jacquetta asked Dan to be her partner in this venture. The rest is history!

In the summer of 2013, the pair signed a lease on a space on beautiful California Ave. in Palo Alto and has slowly been going through the process of opening their restaurant. After some unexpected holdups, construction finally started, and now the restaurant is scheduled to open within a few months.

 One unexpected cost has been the price of new sausage making equipment. The top equipment is out of the budget without your help. Dan and Jacquetta are asking you to help fund the purchase of a new meat chopper, sausage stuffer and smoker. These items have a combined cost of over $37,000. Remember, with Kickstarter, if we don’t reach our goal, we don’t receive the money.

Take a look at the awesome benefits, including an invitation to our Open House, a cooking class with Chef Dan, even free hot dogs for life! Within the next few months, Chez Franc will open on California Avenue in Palo Alto. The restaurant will serve hot dogs and sausages, but also sides, appetizers, desserts, artisan sodas, and beer and wine! We promise something or everyone.

While waiting for the restaurant to open, we have successfully launched the Chez Franc food truck which currently serves San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties. This truck currently serves great hot dog combinations similar to those in our restaurant. The only difference is we have to purchase the hot dogs instead of making them ourselves. 

 The food at Chez Franc is unlike any hot dog restaurant. We use the finest local ingredients to make delicious creations. One seasonal hot dog is the “Summer” which is an all-beef frankfurter with peach, burrata, speck prosciutto, basil and balsamic. Another current favorite is the “Mission”, an all-beef frankfurter with bacon, avocado mousse, spicy bean aioli, crema, jalapenos, scallions, a cilantro. 

We can’t wait to be open for business in Palo Alto! Thank you for donating to this campaign and being part of the Chez Franc Family!

リスクと課題

Of course, every restaurant is risky business. However, we are in the home stretch now. Our project is nearly complete and we are set to open in only a few months. At this point, there is no stopping us! While we could encounter additional construction related delays, we will eventually open this restaurant!

Our biggest risk with this project is that if we don't reach our very big goal of $37,000 that we won't receive any money! Please don't let us lose our pledges!
