Rise is the newest addition to downtown Mystic's restaurant scene. With a focus on quality ingredients and meticulous execution we are certain to become a neighborhood hot spot for locals and tourists alike. Rise serves breakfast and lunch offering both full-service seating and takeout. The menu is based around all of the classics that you hope to find in a small eatery as well as offering exciting and unique specials that rotate on a daily basis. We are dedicated to sourcing our ingredients as locally and organically as possible because we believe our food can only be as good as the products we start with. We are working with farmers and other small businesses in the area to help strengthen our community and raise awareness of sustainability.  

Risks and challenges

RISE has a great advantage in downtown Mystic; there currently isn't really any competition. There is no where else to get a full breakfast, and certainly not one of the quality we can offer. The buzz surrounding this project is already huge because it is the one thing our town is missing. Perhaps in the future another breakfast place will move in and then I will be competing for business, but there are plenty of hungry people to go around. Another struggle I will face is the unknown. All new restaurants struggle with finding the right ratio of food to people. I don't want to buy too much and end up wasting product, but I don't want to buy too little and run out. My decade of experience in the industry will help me avoid this and it is something I can really hone specifically for RISE over the first year.
