Sometimes you just have to follow your gut.
About a year ago, I began working on a business plan presentation for a restaurant idea, DC Born & Raised. They were starting from scratch but had a dream. I know the restaurant industry is tough, but something made me believe in them – perhaps the convincing persona of Dwayne Moore (Co-Owner) or the unique concept of the restaurant itself.
I created the written content for their business plan presentation, website, advertising one-liners and various Facebook posts. I was so impressed by the talent, devotion, and passion in that team, I felt honored to be a part of it.
Last Wednesday, they opened their doors for the first time and it was huge hit. They had such a large crowd that they couldn’t seat everyone and some patrons had to do with take out. The food was devoured with almost every plate Chef Charles’ created practically licked clean. The next day, they had a rave review from a local blogger (http://www.girlmeetsfood.com/blog/2014/10/09/eatsplace-opened-last-night-to-a-welcoming-neighborhood/). I’m so excited for them; they’re such a great team and deserve this. I hope their success continues for many years.
By the way, if you’re in DC, check them out: DC Born & Raised. I’ve had a sampling of the food and it was out of this world with savory combinations I never would have thought to put together, but work so well to complement and enhance the flavors.
