We love making brunch for folks. We are here on Kickstarter fighting for the beautiful business we've created.
Recently our sole business partner/ investor informed us he wants to sell the business, he's moving on to another project.
So we ( Ian and I ) are buying him out.The total cost of the business is $150,000. We've financed $80,000. We had hoped to finance the rest of the money, $70,000 through a traditional loan from our bank.
We thought easy, we're busy, we're breaking even, we'll get a business loan from the banks. Sadly, the banks said no go. Beeswing is a successful business that supports our family, and our staff of 15 amazing employees, (who we pay a living wage). Our restaurant also supports over 20 different local small businesses and farms who provide us with the yummiest quality ingredients. So we are turning to our incredible customers and community to help us #savebeeswing.
We are crowd funding in hopes our devoted customers will help us reach our goal. We aren't asking for donations, we are looking for our community of customers to pay it forward. All the perks are just dollar for dollar vouchers to eat with us.
Donate 30 bucks we'll send you a $30 gift card to come and have brunch with us. Donate 60 and take your whole family or your close friend group out for some trout hash, chicken and waffles and maple donuts. We are conveniently located on the way to or from the airport. We are a gateway to Portlands amazing food scene. A great place to start or end an out of town guests experience of what Portland has to offer. We will host your staff party, your birthday party, your wedding, your school auction. We are here to feed and serve our city.
Brunch isn't just a weekend thing here at Beeswing. We serve our takes on brunch classics 7 days a week for all the folks (Like us ) who don't work the regular 9-5, we are so proud of our menu and our staff of chefs, bakers, cooks, baristas, bartenders and dishwashers. We love the Cully neighborhood, who have welcomed us with open arms. We love all our customers who have supported us.
We want to keep doing what we're doing- Providing beautiful food and drinks in a beautiful space and supporting local farmers, producers, and makers. Beeswing Forever.
Risks and challenges
There have been many challenges along the way, but we have created a beautiful restaurant. The biggest risk is that we won't meet our funding goal and our business partner will sell the restaurant (the name, recipes, concept) to someone else. Beeswing is our first restaurant, our baby. We really just want to keep making it better every day, it would be heartbreaking for us to see it go to someone else.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
