So, we've sold our worldly belongings (well, the house, the car, Anthony's trumpet; the usual), bought the lease (2, Cornmarket, Worcester, WR1 2DJ), registered the company ('Be The Change' Foods), are fine-tuning our recipes (Lemon Drizzle cookies anyone?) upgrading our equipment (Zoe finally has the blender of her dreams!) and people have already gone crazy for our cookies at vegan festivals (we've sold out every time!)
But now comes the key bit- the bit that will convert 'Be the Change' from a 'good vegan eatery' into an awesome space that you just never want to leave...the furniture, decor & general vibe!
Too often when a new, cool & independent place opens up, money is stretched. And the first people to suffer are YOU- the super customers! You have to eat off over-turned crates, posing as 'hipster chic'; you can't bring your nan, because all the chairs are all reclaimed bar stools & are too high. And there's just one too many light fittings hanging down precariously for it to be 'part of the look'...
WELL NOT IN OUR JOINT!
We want 'Be The Change' to be your second home. The place where you can be yourself, kick back, relax & be proud of the positive impact your compassionate choices are having on the world. And you can't do that on a crappy £5 steel chair.
So we're asking for your help. We reckon £3,000 will mean that right from the word 'go', we can make 'Be The Change' the vegan lounge you've been yearning to have locally since...forever!
We're not all take & no give. No, no, no! We've got some amazing gifts to give YOU, our donors, which will be great value for money for anyone who would be visiting us regularly anyway- that's YOU right?! Why are we being so generous? Because we believe that if you're investing in a vegan eatery before it's even opened, your faith in us deserves to be recognised.
So have a peruse & see what you fancy. We think we've put together a pretty cool list of stuff for you to get your hands on; but if you can't see what you want, or think something needs to be tweaked, then get in touch with us. After all, whilst we're the ones with the names on the official paperwork, we want this to be YOUR vegan homeland too! Plus, this starting a cafe business is hard & scary work, so all vibes of positivity will be worth their weight in gold!
Get in touch!
All our love
Ant & Zoe
