What started as a weekly event in a dusty bar to feed friends has grown into a sustainable business.  

Pietrzyk Pierogi has for a long time been a Pop-Up food service where we go into other businesses and set up our kitchen and sell pierogi to masses.  After being a rouge kitchen for two years, we have found a place that we can call home inside of Gratiot Central Market in Detroit. 

We have been a business focused on creating nutrient dense foods while also caring for the people who make them.  In today's cut throat world of culinary, we aim to provide long term employment for anyone who is willing to learn new skills.  Our end goal is to have a production facility where we can work with local non profits to fill the employment gaps in Detroit and give jobs to those who are in need. 

Our store front is our first step in that direction and we need your help.  We are a self funded company and have had many small testing moments in this process.  We believe in solutions not problems and that strife builds character and boy o boy do we have a lot of character. 

This Kickstarter will help raise the funds needed for the finishing touches of the store.  We need a few equipment items(mixers, display freezers, prep tables), some signs for outside of our store so you can find us, packaging equipment, and some electrical work to get us up and going.  We've had some repairs that pushed us over our initial budget for opening and just need a little help from our friends.  We wouldn't want anything for free so we want to return your support with some great gifts coming from the new location and most of all, PIEROGI! 

With your support and donations our dreams of Pierogi can come alive! 

Risks and challenges

The risks and challenges we need to overcome include purchasing some much needed equipment, electrical work, and freezers that ranged outside of our initial planned budget.

We are still in the licensing process with our fabulous city so the only possible hold up would be waiting for the finalization of that licensing in which case we would just move back some of the rewards by a month or two but no later than 2020.

We are asking for the bare bones needed amount but any donations past our goal will only help us more with getting our wish list of items as well.
