Here's an open letter from Robin Supak about Good to Go--an organic and local food takeout restaurant we're trying to open:
|The storefront of Good to Go Organic and Local Food |
Takeout Restaurant in Cherry Valley, NY
My lease is signed, and 17 1/2 Main Street is waiting patiently for me to turn it into a tasty, healthy dynamo of a little kitchen. To do that, I’ll need a bank loan, and to get that, I need an impressive show of support. From Friends, Family, Sustainable Food Enthusiasts, Upstate Small Business Investors, and of course, the many that want to see our dear Cherry Valley flourish.
The bottom line is this: When I open, I will give this kitchen all I have: my heart and soul, blood, sweat and tears, and time and energy. The copious amount of encouraging words I’ve received has been overwhelming, but what I need from each of you now is another cliche altogether: put your money where your mouth is.
If you can’t afford a whole share, go in on one with somebody. That’s only fifty bucks: one for every year of my life that has led me to this very point. Please, I am raring to go. Literally: Good To Go. Help me get started: stomachs, palates, lives, minds, farms, the economy, the state, karma, earth…all these things will improve with this venture. Get excited with me.
Love and thanks,
