We have a dream! To open up downtown Savannah's only donut shop, serving up gourmet donuts, craft coffee from PERC Coffee, and even ice cream from Leopold's! Not enough for ya?!? How about tons of your favorite 80s arcade games! Best your Galaga high score while enjoying an expertly crafted latte. Reach a new level in Pac-Man while stuffing your face with fluffy, glazed donuts. Squash some Q*Bert baddies while gnoshing on an ice cream cookie sandwich. It's okay to cry. Happy tears, of course.

8-Bit Donuts will be located on the campus of The Guild Hall, Savannah's premier gaming destination. The Guild Hall already boasts a host of successful businesses, including The Chromatic Dragon, our gamerpub, The Guild Hall Arena, our 18+ gamerspace, and Jolly Goblin Games, our traditional friendly local game store. With plenty of space to play Magic, D&D, or any other tabletop game your heart desires, 8-Bit will offer more than just arcade games. 

DONUTS, OF COURSE!! We plan to offer from-scratch gourmet donuts. And we're not talking about your average run-of-the-mill flavors, either. Clegg is a donutisseur (he just made that word up) and ran a successful bakery for several years. His ambitions are fierce! His imagination is vast! His belly is wide! Biscoff donuts? Scotcharoo Crullers?! PB&J Stuffed Donuts?! Cap'n Crunch Special?! Dude. There is no stopping this man!

But if arcade games are what brought you here, LOOK NO FURTHER! We plan to offer all your favorite 80s arcade classics, from Centipede to BurgerTime to Zaxxon to Galaga to Robotron! (We could seriously keep going pretty much forever...how long have you got?) Even more: we hope to offer them for free with the purchase of food and drink at 8-Bit! You buy a donut, we hand you some tokens! Is that cool, or what?!

Throw in craft coffee from our good friends and local coffee roasters, PERC Coffee, and you can see why this feels like a culinary dream-come-true. 

But wait, there's more! What Savannah eatery would be complete without ice cream? Kill the heat on a hot Savannah day (which we all know is most of the year) with one of our treats that features delicious ice cream from Leopold's.  Chocolate, vanilla, and most of your favorite Leopold's flavors will be available, either as add-ons to make your donut experience even more magical, or as part of a special creation by our team of donutisans (Clegg made that one up, too).

Not only that, but we'll also be featuring a CUSTOM FLAVOR designed especially for 8-Bit Donuts by Leopold's super secret team of flavor scientists. 

What makes us think we can do this? Our amazing community helped us crowd-source The Chromatic Dragon back in February 2015.  Ever since it opened two months later, our gamerpub has been more successful in its space than any other restaurant in the building before us. The Dragon offers customers console gaming and board gaming while they enjoy up-scale pub food, craft beer, and cocktails. Not to brag, but it's been called "The Disney World of Savannah" and "Oh my god I can't believe this is a real thing am I dreaming?"  We couldn't have done it without our Kickstarter backers, and we hope that together we can achieve similar results with you folks on 8-Bit Donuts. 

Check out this little video to see what kind of fun we've been up to at The Chromatic Dragon.

We have less than 30 days to meet our goal to get 8-Bit open in January 2017!  Read on to learn more about what we can offer and how you can help!

8-Bit Donuts is a team effort brought to you by the amazing people at The Guild Hall.  You can learn more about us at http://theguildhall.com/team

Our team is led by entrepreneurs whose experience is exceeded only by their girth!  (Actually, Chef Bret is the outlier here, but his beard is pretty fat!)

Clegg Ivey - Co-owner / Guildmaster / Donutissuer 

Clegg is the man with the plan. Having founded more than a dozen companies since the late 90s- everything from tech to telecom to energy drinks to local retail- Clegg is dedicating the rest of his career to creating opportunities for people to have fun and play games. Also, Clegg loves pugs. He has, like, 14 pugs. 

Jacob HeiderCo-owner / Technocrat / Lead Borg

Was there ever a piece of technology that didn't interest the man? Not since the mid-80s, at least. A talented programmer, network engineer, troubleshooter of ALL THE THINGS, and the driving force behind the technologies that make the Guild Hall's campus run, Jacob often thinks much like the computers he so admires.

 Bret Gnat - Head Chef / Culinary Rockstar

Chef Bret is the genius behind the incredible menu at The Chromatic Dragon.  With 20+ years of experience working in and running award-winning kitchens in the casual and fine dining industries, Bret is the craftsman behind the amazing desserts at The Chromatic Dragon: The Cake is a Fry (funnel cake fries), Jigglypuffs (tempura-fried cinnamon rolls), and Lakitu's Cloud (deep-fried Twinkies).  Well, guess what?!?!  Bret will be bringing those amazing recipes and flavors, plus a whole lot more, to our menu at 8-Bit Donuts!

 Maximus the Pug - VP, Eatsies / Good Boy

Maximus has been a donut lover for as long as he can remember, which, in most cases, is about five minutes.  He likes actual donuts, as well as donut-shaped toys.  Maximus is not as fond of coffee, but knows a thing or two about Leopold's Ice Cream: namely, that it is delicious and he would like some, thank you very much. 

 

Funding this project gives us a real boost toward getting the equipment and renovations we need to open our donut shop by January 2017. Our needs fall into 3 categories: renovations, equipment, and arcade cabinets.

---Renovation---

We've had the space at 530 MLK Jr. Blvd in downtown Savannah for almost a year now, but as many downtown buildings do, this location needs an almost complete overhaul to bring it up to code.  Of course, we've already invested in making this space look like the donutisserie (another word made up by Clegg!) of our dreams. But we need your help to finish it! Without these funds, we won't be able to get this project done.

Storefront Windows ($1k-$5k) Again, the cost for these will all depend on what kind of glass we can afford and whether we happen to know any local contractors willing to give us a break! Hint, hint!

Savannah's Historic Review Board is psyched for us to replace the plywood-and-plexiglass facade with a real glass storefront.  But massive panes of storm-proof storefront glass are not cheaply bought or installed.  

Flooring ($1k - $5k) Half of the space is covered in some very old black and white checker laminate. And the floors are not exactly what you would call ... level. So, the cost here depends on whether we have enough to float the floor (making it level) and what sort of materials we can afford to cover the floor.

(Did a vampire take this picture?!?) It may not look like much now, but this is where our coffee and donut bar will live!  

Ceiling Repair ($500-$3k) We can patch just the hole caused by a leak from the plumbing in the ceiling (you can see it in the pic below), or we can redo the entire ceiling. The latter is preferable, of course, but costs 6 times more.

Lighting ($500 - $2k) The space has ugly ceiling fluorescents and ceiling fans from the 1980s (which is sort of ironic, if you think about it) and we could replace those with more modern and inexpensive fixtures of the same size or (and especially if we can repair the entire ceiling) we can switch to recessed cans or something a bit less ... institutional.

With your help, we will turn this space into equal parts "tasty donut shop", "comfy coffee shop hangout" and "nostalgic 80s arcade". But we can't do it alone! 

---Equipment---

We've got a hood installed already and we have our old oven, some mixers and glazing tables from Clegg's bakery.  But we still need a variety of donut and coffee related equipment.

Donut Fryer ($500-$5k) - We need a donut fryer, and the better this Kickstarter performs, the better the machine we can afford.

Proofing Cabinet ($500-$1k) - We need a proofing cabinet, which enables us to set the temperature and humidity necessary to create super fluffy donuts.  Again, if we raise more money, we can get a better proofer.

All the Coffee Equipment!!! ($2k-$15k) We can make it all happen with as little as $2k or as much as $15k, when you factor in the espresso machine, coffee grinder, brewers, and assorted thingamabobs.

--Arcade Cabinets--

This one just comes down to what we have left after getting the space ready.  If we had unlimited funds, there is room for 12-15 arcade cabinets and cocktail tables.  Generally, each of these cabinets costs $1,400-$2,000 to acquire.

Examples: 

Galaga / Ms. Pac-Man / Pac-Man (Cocktail) - $1,400

Donkey Kong / Defender / Joust - $2,000

We will need about $50,000 to finish this space. Crazy, right? We are set our goal at $10,000 for a few reasons: (1) That's what we know we need to get the ball rolling on renovation of the space; (2) We wanted to start with an attainable goal and build from there; and (3) We've got some amazing stretch goals planned that will allow us to get to $50,000, if people really get behind what we're trying to accomplish in order to make this space come to life!

 We've got some great rewards for our Kickstarter backers!  Take a look!

Risks and challenges

One of the biggest risks for any local retail food & beverage project is navigating the red tape involved with licensing, permits, inspections, and, of course, getting that very necessary license to serve food by the Department of Agriculture or the Health Department.

The good news is that we've done this before! We opened The Chromatic Dragon in 2015, and that was 10 times more precarious because of the liquor license. Our team has also opened two bakeries in the past, both here in Savannah, so we have plenty of experience that many others don't.

Another risk for any new business is sufficient funding. We've already invested over $50,000 in the project to get this far and one of the things a successful Kickstarter will do, in addition to providing additional funding, obviously, is demonstrate to our investors that there is a market here in Savannah for the type of business that we have planned.

Again, we have nearly the perfect team for overcoming this obstacle. People said a gamer pub would never work. Not just any people, but people who have made their careers in the Savannah food & beverage industry. They told us gamers wouldn't come out to a pub. And they told us the ones who did would not spend any money. They told us we needed to have ESPN and girls with bikini tops and basically the same thing every other bar has. But we proved them wrong with The Chromatic Dragon and we want your help to do it again with 8-Bit Donuts.

Finally, we would be remiss if we didn't mention the very real possibility that Cthulhu, the Great Old One, will awaken from his aeons-long slumber and drive the world into a long, dark age of madness. But we feel like our team is ready for that challenge, as well. After all, insane Cthulhu cultists need gourmet donuts and craft coffee, right? And, with so many tentacles, Cthulhu would probably enjoy playing all of our arcade games at the same time!

    The Gorf

    Prepare yourself for annihilation! But first, tell us your dream donut, and we’ll take it from there. We'll make it just how you want it and we’ll feature it in our store for at least 1 week (maybe longer if it turns out to be super popular!). Of course, you'll get everything included in the Star Wars, but the dozen donuts will be the flavor you created! Plus, you'll get an invite to our VIP Party. Long live Gorf!
