There are a lot of things to do when you’re in The Grafton Centre in Cambridge, but popular wisdom will tell you that one thing you should never miss out on is dining on Skewer’s delectable grilled meats and mouth-watering culinary treats.
After all, it’s the number one place to chill and grill in The Grafton – at least, that’s what we envision Skewer to be.
At the moment, Skewer is just an idea without a form; full of heart but disembodied. We, MB8 Ltd., are looking to open up an amazing restaurant that serves savoury and hearty dishes that families, friends, and lovers can enjoy when they visit The Grafton Centre. The shopping centre itself is one of the oldest and most established in Cambridge, constantly drawing crowds of people looking for great selections, great eats, and a great time.
It is our dream to have our own spot at The Grafton and become its most popular and best-rated restaurant, and we need your help to make it come true. If you’re a believer in passion and amazing coal-grilled food, and want a slice of a phenomenally profitable business with immense potential for growth, come invest with us in Skewer at The Grafton.
MB8 Ltd is currently seeking to open a restaurant at one of Cambridge’s oldest and most prestigious shopping centres, The Grafton Centre. Upon discovering what equity-based crowdfunding can do for startups and fledgling businesses, they asked TFG Crowd to assist them with financing their project. For their first round of funding, they need capital to develop the space they rented from the shopping centre and build ventilation, electrical, and plumbing systems for their restaurant. They also need to purchase all the equipment, furnishings, and lights and have them installed. They require 100 000€ in funds to make all of this happen, and are willing to reward potential investors an annual percentage rate of 17%. For their trust, MB8 Ltd has promised monthly payouts throughout the loan term of 12 months.
The following pledges secure the loan:
· A pledge on restaurant "Skewer"
· Personal guarantee of the Borrowers’ shareholders & CEO
· Guarantee of the Borrower
Cambridge, known to its 150,000 locals as the City of Perspiring Dreams, is no stranger to curiosity, travel, and people who chase their dreams. Home to prestigious institutions like Cambridge University and momentous events that shaped England’s history, it enjoys a steady stream of people from all over Europe and the rest of the world - all looking to experience its rich culture and behold its modern-archaic beauty.
Cambridge boasts a median income of £29.6k, which is hardly surprising considering it is also dubbed “Silicon Fen” specifically for the presence of several giant tech companies across the cosmopolitan city. It also bears the mantle of university town, meaning students represent a good part of its thriving population. Together, these give Cambridge its unique character and shape the city’s cultural milieu.
It’s not unusual for malls in such regions with great population diversity to thrive, especially if it’s one as storied and as established as The Grafton Centre. The Grafton has long been part of the city’s landscape and has enjoyed steady business and widespread success for the better part of thirty years. As one of the very first, it still remains as popular a destination as ever, despite the appearance of other shipping centres in the area.
Part of their success is due to the mall’s strategic location near East Road, which takes advantage of its proximity to Trinity College, historical and cultural landmarks frequented by tourists like Great St. Mary’s Church, and residential areas such as Maids Causeway. More importantly, however, is the fact that it has maintained relevancy simply because The Grafton is a one-stop shop for a wide range of product and service offerings, including fashion, homeware, electrical equipment, food, and others.
It is in light of these fortuitous prospects that MB8 Ltd wishes to build their restaurant at The Grafton Centre. If Skewer succeeds through your investment, The Grafton will have gained an excellent restaurant, and you will have profited from a very lucrative venture.
