Forres For us!
Be part of the first Kickstarter project for Forres and help get Yellow Bar up and running!
The objectives of Yellow Bar are:
- To provide a dynamic space for what we feel is a massively under-served number of people in Forres who are young at heart!
- To leverage community engagement to lead the direction and development of the bar. We will be using what's known as an 'incremental gains' model to continuously improve the bar over time, to become the space that many Forres folk wants
- To encourage local talent and entrepreneurs. We will have two pop-up spaces; one will be in the main seating are of the bar, and will be used by anyone wanting to promote new products/services/charities. The second pop-up space will be in the kitchen, where budding chefs can experiment with dishes and flavours alongside our awesome pizzas.
The goal is to help our community take steps to revive and sustain the local economy. Once up and running, other young people will be able to use this model to start something new in the town.We have a team of tradesmen - many of who I knew from school - to carry out the refurbishment work. It's our turn!We are investing £90,000 to create the Yellow Bar, and our Kickstarter target is £45,000. Check the website, find out what you can get for pledges, but above all join in!

Risks and challenges
Our biggest risk is to have a profit-making business given the low population of Forres (12,500). This is why all of our assumptions and projections are based on Forres only, and not tourism (season dependent) or surrounding areas.
The other big risk is community engagement and support. We hope that the Kickstarter campaign will demonstrate that there is a need for the bar - If we do not reach our target, the bar will not open
