Menu

BIDE's menu is - first and foremost - delicious! Fresh, local and seasonal ingredients contribute to the fun and exciting menu. We will support local farmers by using local eggs, milk, produce, and meat. So, whether you are in need of a organic breakfast to go with your morning coffee or are craving that thick cut bacon and eggs to soak up the remnants of last night’s party, your neighborhood bistro has just what you’re looking for!

Atmosphere

The atmosphere at BIDE is sure to stimulate all your senses, and make you feel at ease. We will offer a modern yet cozy atmosphere. The outdoor seating has the essence of a sidewalk café tucked away amongst an urban area. If it’s not the decor that draws you in, it will be the relaxing music or the aromas of warm baked goods, roasted coffee, and fresh herbs. We will showcase emerging artist works, and also their music, black and white chalkboards, wood tables & chairs, you’ll want to make BIDE your new morning habit!

Marketing Strategy

Utilizing social media avenues, BIDE will engage with customers through Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, and multiple other social media outlets. Captivating students and faculty from colleges in the area by advertising through their newspapers, word of moth, flyers, and more.

Plans to notify local news and media outlets that BIDE is the first Ohio business to incorporate safe payment gateways and also hands on interactive technology is in the works. This will create awareness about crowd funding in general and inform the public of the awesome perks available for joining the BIDE community.

We will work with local and national organizations to help get the word out about BIDE's environmental and social commitments.

Traditional adverting methods such as distributing coupons, local events, solo artist performing, and in surrounding businesses, along with sidewalk signage will also be utilized.

Financial Plan

Estimated remodeling costs, equipment, technology, and job training were $180,000, yet through some hard work and ingenuity the cost estimate has been reduced to $100,000.

Between the two owners basic startup costs has been invested.

The estimated monthly sales are $25,000. Once our technology, website & apps are running, three months from opening, the estimated sales are $50,000/monthly.

Another ingredient important for success is our owners & employees will ensure all administrative work, payroll, operations, IT and accounting is handled with accuracy and timeliness. Backers can be assured that their initial investment in BIDE will be used prudently and that their perks will be delivered as promised.
