Hello, I am a new restauranteur who is seeking start-up capital. My partner and I have funded 85% of the business ourselves. We have our location, equipment, menu, and operational plan but we need an investor to complete the project. We were on track opening in October, when one of our investors fell through, if anyone can direct me to where I may look for funding outside of loans.
We're looking for $15,000 to turn the gas on, first weeks food purchase, first chemical order, small wares, first weeks labor, and menu printing. We're not opposed to unusually high finance rates or terms, however both owners, myself and my partner have poor credit score ratings.
My partner and I have 20+ years related restaurant experience each having worked in restaurants most of our lives in every position available at one point or another. Our business model is sound and proven over time. We just need this one big break to live our dream of owning our own place, we're almost there just need a little help.
