Our Ambition

The initial capital raised will pay off short-term high-interest credit card debt. The ability to refinance this short-term debt will immediately increase Irie Diner’s cash flow by 15%. The burden this debt has had on Irie Diner’s cash flow has prevented the business from expanding and putting resources into other growth projects, such as the planned patio buildout. After the debt is paid off, the remaining funds will be used to construct a front patio to offer outdoor service, and finance a few dining room improvements such as offering additional seating. Irie Diner will also look to hire two part-time cooks and line cooks to assist with projected increased demand. Finally, Irie Diner is looking to produce branded merchandise to improve our brand awareness and customer loyalty. All of these projects are anticipated to contribute positively to revenue growth.
