"It's an incredible part of the business is so massive part of the business and I wouldn't change I couldn't change it but when you ask about the banks and that type of thing so let me let me tell you a little bit about his be free it to us as an example so his spey The rent on his be is the six grand rates on top of that a a forty percent Wage percentage and we take sp between eighteen and on a fucking amazing week. The twenty two thousand pounds a week but the break even for his baby is eighteen. Point nine grand so yeah so most weeks his we break even. I don't give a fuck. I couldn't care less to me. That's amazing if everybody can stay in their careers if everybody's happy if the guests are happy in the teams happy. I don't give a fuck. Okay Okay I love it. Made Forty grand but it doesn't it makes eighteen and the only thing I care about is the making less than break even so they're all very similar to that and When it comes to banks and loaning money it's been difficult over? The is the first money that I tried to. Loan was for an air conditioning. Unit in sticky will the first restaurant in Chester. I asked for ten grand and after the first year and they said no and I is off. Why would you say no because when I when I bought what was the biggest based show they will take on a on a on a on a bad week? Three thousand pounds and their best ever week was five and a half ground which they very keen tell me about and then sticky Walnut Now taking about twenty thousand pounds a week take but then in the first year It had already gone up to eleven thousand pounds a week And I showed this this to the bank and I said why the fuck would you let me turn grandma quite quite clear going on a local bank. Thank that knew. The local gossip as well in the local gossip was that there's this great new restaurant in town and And they thanks very different now. Lay It's not like you. How the bank that the that you go to deal with your business we finally got one now but it hasn't been easy An in an and they said no to that and I realize that it was always going to be difficult So but sticky started doing very well and My my brother is talking about las open another place so I can start promoting people And so we can just expand this people in business. This is my brother said a friend said. Why didn't you do crowdfunding? I never heard of it and then I called my brother about it because I asked him about love things. And now this is Shawn Shawn road brother Yan and then so I called him and he He was insulted because he had done across the the fucking success. What slow with a book to go? And I didn't know I didn't. I didn't know he was going salted obey. He knows what I'm like so it wasn't too much problem. But he said he had look. Yeah I've done crowdfunding across town in my book letters of note as I've got on my coffee. How who he? Yeah he explained it and then I looked into and I thought that it was a fucking dumb idea to be honest by quite like that in the UK. At the time there wasn't really any restaurants that being crowd funded did. There was food projects as street food things but there wasn't a whole restaurant. That had been crowdfunding so I thought it's that fucking ridiculous that I kinda like it and I liked. Yeah Yeah I like the idea of putting ourselves out there and telling everyone being really honest because we'd been quite honest on social media up until then and also why I love about it certainly came across the documentary is you'll let people be a part of Zulu restaurant there is much there as much but as you are in a sense I mean you have cost steak and saw definitely. And that's how they feel and that's how it and I want them to feel that there's a massive sense of pride and almost ownership by the people of the crowd fund. That's so fucking. They're so proud when they go into the new restaurants and their their names on the wall and their friends. I fucking helped the open that place where we don't have to look Prescott a mainly yeah opening even that first afternoon and remember offhand. The the figure Vega but it was definitely in the eighties. We often and yeah well the first guy from two hundred grand and I because I got a hundred grand on the crowd fund the first restaurant I then spoke to finance companies. That said they would lend me the money because I had the underground and why realize them was the with all the restaurants if you wanted to open more restaurants if I could do the crowd fund and the bank would pretty much match it. They wouldn't give me any money just just to open if I had money that match it. And that's and that's what we've done and then so we've done so by the time we got to Prescott we. That was our fourth restaurant that we'd crowd funded and the crowd funding a huge part of is the PR is fucking. Massive is such an amazing raising way to open a restaurant because you could not pay a PR to get the word out about a new restaurant in a better way could by doing a successful crowd fund your everyone one finds out about it so so quickly well. This was the thing so the first one was one hundred grand and we did it over thirty days and it was a big task and we succeeded with three days to go but it was a huge effort by the time we turn off for a little bit more confident with it. I still didn't think it would work but I was a little a little bit. I guess I was just I felt better about it and I knew it more. While at that point it was a bit more tried and tested model. It was it was. We've done three before before that so I thought yeah so I thought you know the biggest one of the biggest things about the crowd funding was actually the PR as well. So I thought well should be fucking great for. PR would be. If if we bring the day down. We bring the dates down instead of doing over month was the shortest time you do it and I had to look on tripadvisor and I think the shortest time that you could do project for was that was that was twenty four hours so I said fuck it. Let's do it. It's a foggy bowls stupid. Honestly the people that we work with friends family all the guys in the restaurants just what the fuck was lost. The this gaze lost that he's finally lost. It what you doing. Why would you do that in a week was the point? Why would you do in a day a week in three days? So I've okay stubborn size fucking day so we saddest craftsman. We're going to try and raise fifty thousand pounds in twenty four four hours to open a restaurant in Prescott. Say there was lots of things this can you. Just explain to the people. Listen because we've got listeners on this all all all around the world and obviously I don't want to do a disservice specially in the north. Here's a little we need to talk about. Press call is so pay a pitch either yet. So press corps is a town in Merseyside. It's it it driving. It would take you fifteen minutes from the Senator Liverpool Twenty years ago there was a really great highstreet impress co the habit of the Hustle and bustle. And everybody's to get their fish from the fish monger meat from the butcher. That was a cobbler's that was all the all the old school things that you would see on on a little road. High Street a quality proper independent yet in Johnson independence and retail park opened about a mile away and that high street. Just it suffered. It really suffered. I don't think it's offensive to me to say that because it's still getting over right now and it suffered a nominee. It's very very clear in. The documentary suffered so most of those shops closed and they said there's lots of empty units and That High Street. When I was visiting Preska I I would say highstreet? After sort of three o'clock in the afternoon new number you wouldn't see a single person and as a part in the documentary where Donald Filming me and he says I say Tim and still light outside Vijay. Probably about three o'clock in ice and we're you know right down the end of the street. I say it's that fucking quiet. You can hear the cash machine and when you can taste yeah So yeah and there's been you know there's been unemployment and it's a fucking horror is a hard. It's a hard area but it's full of some lovely people but it's hard area But I was really interested interested in being part of what a lot of the people around there were also interested in which was like regenerating the place and community and communities get real percents that from the documentary. Yeah and there is and it's a hard area in this people that have had some times there but there's some lovely people there and and I thought you know to have a restaurant that could end up being a little bit of a hobby store place and honey fucking is and you walk and if you're in there now on see if there's two tables ed one table walks in. They know each other and I are. Hey Jane or hey steven they apponaug each other. Everyone knows each other how to meeting place. And it's yeah it's And I wanted to be part of that and I wanted to have a place in an area that I knew that press was. I knew this restaurant would never make big profits. I just need it to break. Even that was only only the ever the go there. But it's quite clear it wasn't about that you know you get real sense La. Yeah how's it been open. It's been open for a year. Now yes going going back to that crowd fund that was fifty so we aimed to open that restaurant with a fifty thousand pound crowdfunding to achieve that in twenty four hours was so we pressed go on the kickstarter page at nine PM. I told everyone about it on social media for weeks before that. We're going to do it. And we did a fifty two thousand pound. We achieved that total in fifty nine minutes. It was fucking ridiculous. It was ridiculous it was ridiculous. dickey's it was so great. It was so weird thing to be involved in..
