About

We are raising money to start a breakfast and lunch Cafe in Summerhill, Atlanta.  Summerhill Atlanta was once a bustling economic hub.  It is credited as being one of the first settlements of freed slaves and jewish inhabitants after the Civil War.  Summerhill quickly developed into a strong middle class neighborhood.  In 1996, Summerhill was host to the 1996 Olympics.  However, after the Olympics, the tide changed.  The once bustling streets became vacant and many businesses and residents moved.  Summerhill endured years of neglect and became a food dessert for the remaining residences.  Our goal is to open a breakfast and brunch cafe to provide the residences of Summerhill with attainable and healthy food options.  We want our restaurant to be more than just a place to get food, but to also bring the community together to restore its greatness.  We believe so much in our mission, that we are using our life savings and dedicating many hours to make this work.  We just need additional funding to finance the costs of the kitchen buildout and any contribution would be greatly appreciated!

Risks and challenges

Restaurants are one of the most risky types of business. However, since the need for food options in Summerhill is so great, we feel this restaurant will be successful. There are 163 thousand people within 1 mile of Poach and 311 thousand people within 5 miles; however, there are very few healthy food options in the area. With such a demand and our great team we will make Poach successful!
