It’s coming, the 2nd annual Dreamstaurant contest, but with our 2nd year, we had to bring it back big – and did we ever! This year’s grand prize package is double what it was last year; that’s right, $40,000 in design services and restaurant supplies from Arctic Air, Manitowoc, and Cambro.Enter Contest Now
If you aren’t familiar with the Dreamstaurant contest, you should go back and visit last year’s post on the Back Burner so you can get the full details, but essentially the contest gives contestants the opportunity to share the details of their dream restaurant with our judges. Contestants can be aspiring to open up a new restaurant, looking to remodel an existing restaurant, or have multiple restaurants that need a little love; either way, if you are like most restaurateurs you have a dream restaurant in mind, but you just need a little help getting there. And if you think a grand prize package of $40,000 would help, then this contest is for you!
Now for the bad news.
You still have to wait to enter, but only a few more hours! At midnight tonight, the contest will open and you can submit your entry to be eligible for the prize package.
Here’s a secret.
Our finalists last year did an amazing job of showing our judges exactly what they were dreaming. I’d encourage you to get as crafty as you can: make a video, send over some photos, or put together a Pinterest board. Whatever you can do to sell your dream, the more you’ll encourage our judges to pick you! The criteria the judges will be using include:
- Market Potential (Mass Appeal)
- Scope of Project
- Creativity of Concept
- Social Response
- Financial Backing
- Strength of Business Plan
- Contestant Experience
The criteria is based on picking a winner that we know is ready to do this! We want to help bring your dream restaurant to life, so show us that you’re ready too, and help us visualize your dream!
Here’s another secret.
