Eater.com reports on a crowd-financed restaurant where 2,000 pay $500 to become “seatholders” in exchange for a 25% discount for life, the ability to vote on certain decesions, and an annual event. What an amazing way to raise money!
I also really like the motto, “Ownership, Fellowship & Honesty In All Things.”
Currently they have 55 “seatholders” and you can sign up online.
If I was in New York or there was a profit-sharing aspect to this I would certainly sign up.
