In February we released our How to Open a Restaurant guide and launched a contest to help one aspiring restaurateur fund his or her dream project. After collecting and reviewing applications and narrowing down entries (with the help of a trusted panel of New York restaurateurs) we are thrilled to announce our three finalists. Congratulations to Christopher Fehlinger, Reem Assil, and Robin Song!
Now that the finalists have been selected, they will each launch Kickstarter campaigns to raise money for their restaurant projects. They will each have the same funding goal ($35,000) and time frame to raise the money. At the end of the funding period, the finalist who has raised the most funds will be declared the winner. We’ll be cheering them on! [Read more…]
