About

Paseo, the legendary Cuban sandwich shop has sadly closed its doors. 

Ranked No. 2 on Yelp's Top 100 Places to Eat in America. Paseo was a Seattle staple near and dear to our hearts.    

We won't be changing the employees or recipes, but we will be changing the work environment, including providing benefits and fair wages to all employees.

When we found out Paseo was shutting down, we were stunned, sad, and angry. How could it be? 

The $250,000 goal represents a small portion of the total cost to purchase and operate Paseo, we created the Kickstarter to give the community part ownership, and a stake in the operations of Paseo.

Paseo is more than a sandwich shop. It's part of Seattle culture.  Help us save this Seattle Institution.  Be a part of Paseo forever!

Risks and challenges

We know this is an ambitious goal but we have to try! Our attorneys have been working on what it will take to acquire Paseo and we're quite optimistic. But, if the deal does not go through, of course all money will be refunded to respective donors.

As a dining application company our employees, and partners, have a great deal of experience in starting and operating restaurants. As such, we feel that we are a good fit to re-open and run Paseo.
