The total anticipated project cost for Towne Crier is $462,000. The owners have committed over $92,000 in kitchen and other equipment to date. Proceeds from the minimum NextSeed raise of $200,000 will be used to complete build-out and for opening inventory. Specifically some build-out items in our budget include permits, painting interior/exterior, flooring, bathrooms upgrades, building repairs and lighting. Funds raised above the $200,000 minimum will be put towards pre-opening costs, advertising, labor costs and working capital for the project.
