About

East meet West inspired fusion burgers and fries Café

We are raising funds to open Sheppard Cafe inside a popular Asian supermarket as part of their food court area.  

The food court area consist of 5 private food vendors who offer a wide variety of menus specializing in Asian cuisines.  Sheppard Cafe will be offering an  East meet West fusion inspired menu focusing on a variety of gourmet burgers, grilled jerk marinated chicken, lobster rolls, fried shrimp in a basket, and homemade fancy fries.   Shoppers will review our menu on the store's digital bulletin board and pay for their selection at the cash register.  Once the order is complete their ticket number is announced for pickup on intercom speaker. 

Lobster roll
Burgers & Fancy Fries

The food court area will be open 7 days a week including Holidays from 11 am to 9 pm

Food Court Area

The kitchen area is fully equipped with existing sinks, refrigeration and exhaust hood with active ansul system.  Since there are no gas line we need to purchase or lease to own equipment to cook with.  We are seeking to obtain the following items, 1 flat top charbroiler grill, convection or turbochef oven and refrigerator prep table.

Risks and challenges

The first risks that we will be experiencing are labor cost and covering full and part-time shifts. My wife and I prepare to step in when necessary to cover vacant shifts until we establish a reliable team members

The second risk and challenge is food cost. We need to identify the shopper's demands and likes. Once we move into space we will be monitoring shopper's daily traffic flow and ordering habits. We will offer samples for tasting.

The third risk and challenge is training team members and creating a standardized menu. We plan on hiring an outside consultant to come in for training.
