About

My name is Don Strong, and all I've ever wanted was to live at the beach and serve food from an old school 50's style Italian Deli like the ones I used to frequent in Philly where I grew up. And BAM, my dream came true! For almost 2 years now, I've been serving up the best and most authentic Italian Corner Deli fare right in the heart of the beach community of Charleston on James Island. But, recently we got some bad news, one of our initial investors lost his interest in the shop and wants to sell his share, and by selling his shares, it means Yous Guys would have to shut down..unless we can raise $20,000 to buy him out!

I don't want to lose my dream because someone else has changed their vision. I've worked too hard to loose this little slice of heaven I call Yous Guys, and from the reviews we've been getting online, and all of the love you all have been sending our way on social media, we KNOW that with your help, we can save Yous Guys and keep it around as a staple on James Island for decades to come, we just need your help to get over this last hurdle!

Once we raise the money to save your Deli, there will be so many massive changes and improvements that I'll finally be free to add! We're taking BEER, LATE NIGHT HOURS for the F&B crowd I know and love so much, Monthly Block Parties in our parking lot - especially during Football & Basketball Season - A back patio, more seating, and more delicious hoagies than you can throw a brick at.

Helping us save Yous Guys doesn't just save a restaurant, you would be saving my DREAM, and creating something that James Island can hold on to and call their own until I'm too old to lift a spatula or split a fresh baked hoagie roll.

Risks and challenges

With 20k we can save our little deli! But remember, Kickstarter is all or nothing, and if we don't make our goal, we might lose Yous Guys forever!
