Yardie Ting (website, facebook, instagram) is planning to open a restaurant in Gray, Maine. In support of the project chef/owner Shanna-Kay Wright has launch a crowd funding campaign with the goal of raising $25k.
My name is Shanna-Kay Wright. I am a female entrepreneur, chef, and single mother of two children. I am of Caribbean roots which inspire the cuisine on the menu of my own Caribbean restaurant called Yardie Tings…I would like to expand to another location that will allow for the growing demand and to include space for guess seating in a relaxed environment. The funds that are raised will be used for the renovation of the new location, which will begin next February of 2021. I have sourced a new location that requires layout changes and equipment purchases as I undertake renovations. Your donations will be used for the build-out of the restaurant because it is a blank canvas, the purchasing of appliances, and other fixtures for the restaurant. This will allow for a spacious, warm, and inviting environment for customers.
Wright plans to keep the original Yardie Ting in the Public Market House open, and hopes to open the new restaurant this spring.
