The owners of Cong Tu Bot have launched a $75k crowdfunding campaign to help to assist with the launch of their new restaurant Lido’s 2. In the few days since it kicked-off the campaign has raised $7,033 towards their goal. Contributes to the campaign will receive 120% of that amount as a credit to be used at Lido’s 2 or Cong Tu Bot.

Update: Since this article was published the prospective name of this business has been changed to Oun Lido’s.
