Despite the success of our restaurant Amigos Cantina we have suffered some very serious setbacks. In mid June, without informing us, the owners of the Amicitia Food hall, where our restaurant was located, declared bankruptcy. We were forced to abandon our restaurant with more than € 15.000,-. worth of investments and deposits. The same week a large fire destroyed the storage facility and our inventory completely. Very unfortunately we were not insured at that time. We have to start over.
In the mean time, we are 1 of the 10 selected restaurants which are invited to open a new place at the new food hall in Zwolle. We are now concentrating our efforts and energy in rebuilding Amigo’s Cantina and we need your support to do this.
From our total funding goal of € 50.000,- we need to raise € 25.000,- now. This is the minimum we need by the end of October to meet the immediate goals of construction costs, rent deposits and a down payment for our new kitchen.
I am very grateful for the generosity we have already received, and ask for your continued support as we carry on with our vision of Amigos Cantina in the new food hall in Zwolle.
Amigos Cantina started with a small food cart selling traditional Mexican food at markets and food fairs. I want to combine my passion for food and cooking for others with my desire to start my own business. Up until the recent challenges it was successful. We have proven our concept is sound, our food is excellent and our determination is unbreakable. We will rebuild! Do you want to help realising our dream?
This is how!
We welcome any support, be it big or small! Thank you!
Besides our eternal gratitude, you get a free “Lorenzo Special” dish when our restaurant in Zwolle opens.
Come on over and say hi to us. While you are here, we’ll treat you to a nice meal and you can take home 3 jars of our legendary Salsa. And yes, unlike batteries, the nachos are included! :)
Get yourself a nice t-shirt, along with one of Lorenzo’s special dishes and three jars of salsa (with nachos!) to take home. (The final t-shirt design will be different from what you see here.)
Get yourself a very special limited edition t-shirt, along with one of Lorenzo’s special dishes and three jars of salsa (with nachos!) to take home. (Final design has yet to be determined, but it will be nice!)
Some things look even nicer in black, such as t-shirts! This will be a special limited edition t-shirt, and will only come in black. In addition, you will of course get a special dish made by Lorenzo, and three jars of Lorenzo’s delicious salsa to take home. Nachos included! We’ll also put your name on the wall of our new restaurant. (The final design has yet to be determined, but it will be very nice!)
You will be among the first to get a Salsa Strippenkaart for Tio Lorenzo’s very own delicious salsa. The concept is very simple: the strippenkaart allows you to get 12 refills of salsa, each refill consisting of 3 jars and a bag of nachos. This is great to get yourself fresh new salsa every month, for a whole year! This tier also includes all other rewards from the Tio Lorenzo’s T-Shirt reward tier! We’ll also put your name on the wall of our new restaurant.
Can’t choose between the “Paint it Black” Limited Edition T-shirt and the Salsa Strippenkaart? Don’t worry, you can pick both! Of course, this includes everything else from those tiers: the Lorenzo Special dish, a bottle of tequila, and eternal gratitude! We’ll also put your name on the wall of our new restaurant.
Everyone that supports €500,- or more will be invited to an exclusive BBQ Party that we’ll arrange for our supporters. We’ll provide the food, drinks and entertainment. You just have to show up and enjoy yourself. You will get your own personal name plate on the wall of our new restaurant.
You invite your best friends and family over to your home and we’ll come over to you and provide you with our savoury authentic Mexican food. Drinks included! You will get your own personal name plate on the wall of our new restaurant. (Max 10 people)
Enjoy the full experience of “The Escape Room” with five of your friends, and afterwards we will throw you an amazing dinner party. We’ll take care of the tickets for The Escape Room and will stuff you up with some delicious authentic all inclusive Mexican food afterwards :) You will get your own personal name plate on the wall of our new restaurant.
We will throw you and your friends (max 50) the most amazing Mexican party you have ever had. During the day we will provide your with drinks, snacks, food, music and entertainment. You will get your own personal name plate on the wall of our new restaurant.
