Black Star Patio Improvement Fund
Over the past year, we have seen our Pub and Brewery experience many changes. We had an amazing first quarter with all of your help. We have seen tenured workers move on to new business ventures, and allowed a new team of dedicated workers to step up into roles of larger responsibility while carrying a fresh and hopeful outlook on what we need to make our business successful. Thank you for your generosity and support that has helped to achieve this!
During this process of change, however, we have recognized our need to upgrade many of our facilities to better accommodate you, our loyal customers. We are unfortunately not in the financial position to make this happen without some help. While most senior members of the Workers Assembly have taken pay decreases, increased our portion of health insurance costs, and have not seen pay raises in over two years, we have decided that making improvements to our location in order to create a more welcoming environment is our highest current priority.
As we are working to cover our costs of operating, we are humbly reaching out to our members for some help with making these necessary improvements to our facilities. The result of your help and contributions means that we can upgrade our patio tables, booths, and table tops to name a few. We take so much pleasure in offering our guests food and beer that is made with love and pride, and nothing would make us happier than to create an environment that compliments these strong suits. Thank you, member-owners, for your continued support and faith in Black Star Co-op.
*Note: If every member-owner donates just one dollar, we could purchase all 15 new patio tables!
