Save Our Shop
We are announcing our plan to survive into the next year. This
post is our plan going forward. To read about the ongoing
struggles for business on the Ridge, read Here.
To overcome our challenges we need to leverage our existing skills
and boost sales. Snoqualmie is our home and we want to stay, but
we can't sell enough doughnuts on the Ridge anymore to stay
afloat, so we want to take our show on the road! We want to start
a Food Truck! This will be a two part plan:
Part 1) Kickstarter: We need to generate cash, plain and simple.
As such we are going to launch a Kickstarter campaign soon. The
purpose of this will be to catch up on power bills, ingredients,
rent and the other odds and ends that fall behind when sales drop.
We've been able to recruit some local businesses to help provide
some amazing incentives. We'll publish everything soon, but
examples include S.O.S. T-shirts, Doughnut Club membership
cards, Sponsorship Decals ON THE TRUCK, and even the
opportunity to host the truck at your office where you will be
worshipped by your co-workers!
Part 2) Investors: Opening the business to investors, combined
with debt leverage, will be how we acquire the actual truck. We
will provide a full valuation for the existing business, plus
projections for the truck portion. Once this portion of the
business is online we will be able to generate an exceptional cash
flow. We will use our existing production capability to supply a
mobile retail outlet, making our slow days great days, while being
able to stay in Snoqualmie, safe and sound. If you think you'll be
interested in investing or loaning, contact Steve!
Look for more info soon!
