Who says Kickstarter is just for techy-related stuff? Frisch Eatery is a vegan restaurant setting up shop in the old Cafe de Rico building on 800 S 500 E, and they are raising funds to upgrade plumbing and purchase cooking equipment so they can open shop.
If you haven’t heard of Kickstarter, I would encourage you to look into it. It’s a website whose aim is to help entrepreneurs raise funds for various projects from iPhone-compatible watches to, well, restaurants. People who donate funds are considered “backers” and typically receive some sort of benefit once the product is launched. If the project doesn’t raise the necessary money, it’s back to the drawing board.
If you’ve always wanted to support local businesses, now you have a new, unique way to do just that!
