  • Successfully raised 112% of our intended goal through 980 backers
     
  • Upon completion the project was the 3rd most funded restaurant campaign in Kickstarter history
     
  • Helped to secure over a dozen earned media mentions including articles in EATER, Star Tribune, Pioneer Press, City Pages, Heavy Table, MSP Business Journal, Mpls/St Paul Magazine, and more
     
  • Campaign received the endorsement of notable celebrity television personality and chef, Andrew Zimmermn
     
  • Sole creator of eight videos to support the campaign, including ones that featured well known Minnesota musician Jeremy Messersmith
