As you all know, this pandemic is the biggest challenge we have ever faced in the food service industry. I am pulling together a concept I hope will help us all make it through this– together. I have acquired a lease for a commercial kitchen in Downtown Durham to serve as a pop up/ghost kitchen space for take out and delivery for local restaurants and food trucks.
We are calling it Steadfast Durham and we are now taking requests to join.
The goal of Steadfast Durham is to keep our teams employed during this time. And we need your participation to make this work.
What You Will Do:
Bring your team, cooks, delivery drivers, food, disposables, and liability insurance.
What Steadfast Durham Will Do:
We will handle order taking, POS, organizing your delivery drivers, organizing take out, taxes, accounting, marketing, and press.
What Will it Cost:
Steadfast Durham will require 15% of your sales for overhead, we do not want to make any money on this project, we just need our overhead covered. If we don’t use the full 15 % for expenses, any extra money will be donated to the Triangle Restaurant Employee Relief Fund.
Our plan is to launch April 1st with at least seven concepts in place. Once we have a list of people who want to participate, we will schedule a conference call to answer questions. Many seasoned professionals are donating their time to this effort who will be happy to share their advice on how to get through this tough time.
