“We have been in business for three years now, doing business out of two thirds of our building. We have been waiting to invest in the third floor until we knew that we had the right idea. Our team spent late nights talking about ideas for the space – selling coffee and doughnuts, renting the space out as offices, a full service restaurant, all the way to using the space to offer mail order services. But, nothing felt quite right, so we stayed committed to searching for the right decision – one that sparked enthusiasm in everyone.
From the day we came up with the idea for Three Little Pigs, we knew we wanted to work to become a destination. After reading about “third places”, written about in The Good Great Place by Ray Oldenburg, we realized that to become the destination we wanted to become, we needed to create a place where the community comes together.
That is what we are building. We are building a place where we can host themed dinners, private luncheons, wedding showers, large scale butchery classes, food and wine tastings, classes on all types of food, even football Sundays. This is a place for all of the great people in our community to meet and have a great time!
Your help will go towards the much needed tables, chairs, doors, and the equipment and tools we need to teach and host our guests. We are investing our money to pay for the renovations, but that money will only get us a blank canvas – we need your help so we can get the paint, too. 15k is our goal, but the more we can raise the more we can invest into special equipment and other needs to make this event space awesome!”
