We want to take a few seconds to give a little back story about ourselves, to ensure you feel confident about who you are backing! We are both classically trained Chefs, we should be rivals as Melissa went to Johnson & Wales and Penny went to the Culinary Institute of America....Instead we have joined forces as an incredible duo of knowledge and experience. We spent years running the show in kitchens for other owners, we have worked all over the country, for great notable American Chefs. We have traveled and staged both nationally & internationally, giving us both great perspective, understanding of regional specialties and expanding our ever evolving palates. All of this experience has lead to this, deciding to take the leap and owning and operating our own business.
You may be wondering more about our neighborhood. We will be located in Slavic Village, a neighborhood of Cleveland, Ohio. This neighborhood is a true cultural melting pot and has a history of butcher shops. In fact our space was Jaworski's Meats, they were in business there for about 30 years and can still be found in the neighborhood of Middleburg Heights. We will be located on Fleet Avenue, which is nearing the completion of a $9 million renovation. This renovation will make our street the first certified Green Street in Cleveland. The street itself will be completely repaved with parking bump outs, new brick crosswalks, wider sidewalks, green space that will act as sponges pulling runoff water away from Lake Erie and lots of planters for streetscape beautification.
Risks and challenges
Since we will be in the process of buildout, we foresee potential challenges by time restraints. We will be doing some of the work ourselves plus keeping up with normal production out of our current shared facility. We have never done a project of this nature and are trying to ensure that we deliver incentives in a timely manner. Most importantly we will continue to update our backers on the progress of our project with short videos and photos.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
