Well, this gofundme thing doesn't look like it's gonna hit the breakpoint. I still need to raise 27,500 for the minimum contribution for the sba loan to make this project doable. If any of you out there would like to discuss a more traditional "investment/loan" option,know this: in every Chef role I have heald I have increased sales, improved reviews, maintained better than averages costs and operating expenses. Everyone was paid back from investments in Jon's Street Eats. I have a solid track record let's make something unique happen!

Some of you may remember me as the founding operator of Jon's Street Eats, one of the first pioneers of the Bay Area's street-food scene. I sold Jon's Street Eats in the spring of 2011 to move to Napa and try to start a family with my wife. The past year has been a tough road of navigating through fertility tests and treatments and taking things off the table, such as dedicating my time to a restaurant or project of my own.  Now that we have navigated through this challenge, it is time to focus on getting something off the ground.  


$30,000 is the minimum needed to apply for an SBA loan that would cover a build-out and opening expenses for a small, modest, hands-on operation.  I envision a Classic American Diner meets sensible seasonality, much like Jon's Street Eats approach: simple, familiar foods done right, at an affordable price. 

With your support to reach this goal, you will be helping me bring real food to real people.

I'm trying to up my contribution to the $250 category. This program doesn't let you adjust it... so I'm doing a second bid.

In memory of honest and generous Jon and my beautiful terra cotta patio my dogs and I still enjoy so much. Wish it could be more. You never know -- maybe later.
