We are so excited to announce that we have signed a lease. Let the real adventure begin. ARE you ready for this? Can YOU handle what we are bringing? HERE is what you can expect at The Sweet Spot and Urban Lounge:
Quality products at reasonable prices - fresh baked bread, muffins, cookies, cakes and pies. Jams, jellies and pickled vegetables . Decadent date night desserts. Soft, sultry jazz music. A place for the family to come hang out. Marketplace of local vendor products. Classes and never heard of fun and exciting events.
While looking for a location we have learned that not everyone does things in the proper order, if at all. Plans have had to be drawn and permits retroactively pulled, even to equipment being removed.
We will be using the funds to get equipment and seating and insurance.
Our Journey was not without curves, some fun some not -
We have been creators in One Spark, a crowd funding event in Jacksonville, FL during 2014, 2015 and 2016 which helped to get our name out in the public. People came to us this year saying they remembered us and asking where we were. We have built a fan base.
We were hit by tornado from tropical storm Colin on June 6th 2016. When it was all said and done and we looked outside to find one car crushed by tree and the other covered by a tree branches.
In 2017 Hurricane Irma destroyed our booth at The Jacksonville Farmers Market and we set out doing pop ups around town in 2018, while being asked "Where is your shop"? "Do you have a store"?
Our vision has not changed we are ready to change lives -
We so badly want to help those with learning differences get a start with jobs and more and we have not wavered from this. Please help; please show that you care and that you believe. This business can help so many live productive happy lives. It is being done all over the country and now we want it in Jacksonville, FL.
