International Wings Factory is planning a phase 2 of expansion. I, Deepak Ballaney, started this restaurant with help of my wife and a helper. We are in our fourth year and a have grown constantly since then. Today we are a team of seven. I’m an Alumnus of The Culinary Institute of America and The Columbia University. I have turned my back to every perk of a rewarding corporate career to be an entrepreneur who could create more jobs and instill the hospitality values in this new generation. I have reinvested every penny earned in this country into the same system, in a way of education and now with this restaurant. I firmly believe that the American dream still exists.
Now I’m at the cross section where I have to make a decision as to whether I should take a loan, burden myself with thought of repaying it in few years or go this route of crowd funding.
As you all are aware of the fact that even if I take a loan I would not be able to use those funds upfront for at least 3 – 4 months from the time I get them in my bank. Lending companies would keep charging me interest from the time of issuance of the fund and then would expect me to return the money back to them in 3 years top 4 years. Which becomes extremely difficult add that at the time the restaurant takes to sustain.
I’m not asking you for hundreds and thousands of dollars it could be as low as $10. I don’t want to lose friends here and I definitely don’t want affect anybody’s personal economy. That is the amount that almost every American or everybody in the world spends on their Starbucks or any beverage in a day or two. No one will be judged at under any cost, you donate or not. People who are a part of my life and business will hold the same importance no matter what. If you can donate someone you can, so even spreading that word matters.
Everybody has suggested and that I go through crowd funding sites such as Kick starter, Indiegogo or other sites which have been successful in helping people build their dreams. But the most important thing that I have learned from people who have used these websites is that they expect you to get half of the funding from your families and friends. My question is if I have to ask my family and friends I can just ask, they would help me so why would I give 4-5% commission to a third party for the money that they want to give me for my dream anyways.
Therefore I decided to do my own crowd funding campaign and I’m a firm believer that there is someone up there (god) and that if there is a will there is a way. I have helped people in past and now I will get my fare share of boost.
As a gesture and a token of appreciation, I’m ready to offer you a minutest stake of International wings factory. Even though it would be a fractional number, if the company grows as what I have planned this will be the best return of investment that you would have ever been offered.
The main reason why I am ready to offer you a part of my company is because everybody loves their investment even if it is a dollar you want to see miraculous returns. This would in turn mean that you all will pray for the good will of the company and good luck is what everybody needs.
Within three months from now you will receive a small share certificate in your mail box. Please keep the original for the redemption. No redemptions will be made until 5 years from the day of investment.
Your contribution will go towards expansion of international Wings Factory. Each store will have at least 4 to 5 employees. Just imagine your little donation will help me create so many jobs.
Everyone likes to follow big brands but to be a part of brand in making will definitely give you a sense of pride, fulfillment and achievement.
