A: We have been working tirelessly all year with new initiatives aggressive marketing campaigns. More events. More connections but it has all seem to not be enough. A GoFundMe can be an extremely damaging move for a business to make and we only wanted to use it as a last resort. Hopefully its not too late!

A: What can we do but carry on? We have been scrambling in the background for months now but have attempted to maintain a future/success focused mind set and image at all times.

A: We have met with City Council Members and discussed what that might look like. At the present there is no room or mechanism in place for a “Bail Out”. Part of our on going success plan is to continue exploring long term relationships with the cities.

In 2023 Our collective take home as owners will be less than $100K

We hope to have the opportunity to take everything we have learned in the last 5 years and develop our operations into a truly financially viable business.
