Why are we crowdfunding?
We would like to raise funds to convert bedrooms at the Smoke Stop BBQ to offer high quality accommodation and we need your help please. In return for your help and allowing us to expand (and to reduce the losses due to Covid-19), we will reward your loyal support.
Our building has its origins as a Coaching Inn dating back to 1724 when it was built, so this move supports the history of the building.
We have been truly humbled by the kind words of support we receive daily on our Facebook page and hope you will support us in our venture by pledging, enjoying the rewards on offer and being part of the Smoke Stop BBQ story.
What are we offering?
We are offering a great set of rewards for those that pledge money for our project at the Smoke Stop BBQ. The money raised will be used to improve our bedrooms accommodation sensitively in an area that would benefit from additional places to stay. We will create 8 luxurious en-suite double rooms, 1 en-suite twin room and 1 en-suite family room.
The rewards range from free merchandise, 20% VIP discount cards for life, free nights’ accommodation when completed and significant discounts for our external bar and food event bookings.
The 20% VIP loyalty card can be used at our restaurant on food and drink; and also when booking our B&B accommodation. The Smoke Stop BBQ restaurant and building is set in the lovely village of Ford, just outside Shrewsbury and has access to the beautiful county of Shropshire, along with routes to the Midlands and Wales.
Join the Smoke Stop journey, be part of a 300-year-old legacy and help us to bounce back from some difficult times for the hospitality sector.
Some VERY important notes.... PLEASE READ
- The name you enter when making the pledge is what will be printed on any supplied Smoke Stop BBQ vouchers and VIP loyalty card. If you are pledging to give the reward as a gift to someone you will need to enter the name of that person, not yourself.
- Ensure the home address that the card should be sent to is correct.
- Please double check the e-mail address you enter as that is the only way we can get hold of you.
- If there is any space to add a phone number, please do that so we have a second way to get hold of you. If you are entitled to merch, we will be in touch asap to get sizes for that.
- The VIP loyalty card will allow a 20% discount for the card holder against their spend in the restaurant (everything on sale) and also any accommodation booked. To use the VIP loyalty card, all bookings for the restaurant and accommodation must be made directly with the Smoke Stop BBQ and will not be valid if a third-party booking site is used. The VIP loyalty card cannot be used in conjunction with any other offer.
- We plan to keep the pledge and reward deal open for 4 weeks, but we may cut that short if we hit our target early.
- Once we close the crowd funder, we will work as fast as possible to collate names and distribute your vouchers. We estimate this to be 2 weeks after the crowd funder closes.
- We will order merch as soon as we get everyone’s details in, so expected timing on you getting hold of your fab limited-edition Smoke Stop BBQ Tee Shirt will be advised.
Be assured we will be working as fast as we can on everything. Thanks again lovely people from all us at the Smoke Stop BBQ.
