Bring KBBQ to Ashburn, VA

Delicious Korean BBQ
Delicious Korean BBQ

Tired of driving to Centreville and Annandale for Korean BBQ? Wouldn’t you rather have one in your backyard, and if not in your backyard in Loudoun County?

Why drive 30+ mins?
Why drive 30+ mins?

Help fund this idea and we can finally enjoy KBBQ in Ashburn!! 

Building a restaurant is not cheap and especially when it comes to this concept. KBBQ equipment is expensive and so are the permits. We plan to use the Hoodini hood and grill systems by JC Enterprises.

We are looking to transform an already built restaurant into a KBBQ rather than building completely from scratch. And the closer we get to the $50,000 goal the sooner we can have local KBBQ.

This particular location already has a lot of the infrastructure in place which will allow for an easy transition. 

We have talked to the leasing company, and they understand that after the completion of this kickstarter we will sign a 10 year lease. 

It will take approximately 6 months from the time we are funded to be open. It all depends on the permit process, but I expect us to be open by 2020.

Rent isn’t cheap in the area and good help isn’t either. We plan to hire authentic chefs and a professional crew. Northern Virginia has one of the largest Korean populations in the world, outside of Korea. 

With your help and everyone you tell to donate we will make this happen. 

Unlike other kickstarters, we have a 1:1 return. With no time limit for renewal.

My team and I cumulatively  have over 64 years of restaurant experience and and will bring to the community what they are missing. Delicious and authentic KBBQ. We will also be putting a lot on the line.

We wouldn't be doing this project if it wasn't for the Northern Virginia Foodies Facebook group consistently asking for KBBQ to be brought closer to them. 

Thank you for your help! 

Rewards!

We will dedicate by name (or organization) a wall in the restaurant to all of those who back this project. 

  • Variety of packages for Lunch or Dinner available
  • Dinner for you and a friend every week for a year
  • Limited run KBBQ Red T-Shirt 

Risks and challenges

There is plenty of former restaurants and retail space available in the Ashburn, VA area. It is imperative to keep costs low that we secure a lease with an already built-out restaurant. If we are unable to do this, the costs will rise. This is why we set a goal of $50,000, we will need every bit of that for the build-out, marketing and payroll.
