We want to introduce and expand Caffe Santoro Part Two!

We have opened our second cafe and it needs capital improvements to the facility and some additional equipment for operating.

About the campaign

Caffe Santoro has been operating from it's original location for 7 years. We've always believed that in order to best serve our community and extend a brand embraced by those in one part of town that when the opportunity to duplicate ourselves arrived we would take it. 6 months ago we secured a location almost completely built out. We stepped out and into this location. With a few hiccups we're in our 7th month and we are on target to meet our sales goals. Our plan has always been to secure the capital needed to see us through the first year of marketing and operations. This expansion means a total of 22 entry level jobs in a company where a young person can thrive and learn basic people/personal skills. It also means there's another convenient place for great coffee and connecting.

This campaign's success will see us secure the future and take us to the next level.

Our company's back bone is our relationships... with our team, our guests and community and the relationship with our suppliers and vendors. All of these relationships form to build Caffe Santoro. We ask a lot of our team in service to each other and our guests. What sets us apart is YOU!

We're dedicated to serving the people of our community by offering a great product with PERSONALITY!

Partner with community sourced capital

Community Sourced Capital exists so that businesses can access affordable capital from their community

By connecting community members, small business owners and mission-aligned funders to the goal of creating healthy communities, we’re introducing a new purpose for financial systems, removing barriers to success for entrepreneurs, and building meaningful relationships around money.

Providing affordable capital to community businesses is vital to our economy

Small businesses are the key generators of jobs in our economy and character in our communities. Everyone seems to know that. What most people don't know is how important funding is to the success of a business.

Even in this day and age, most small businesses simply cannot access the funding they need to succeed. New lenders have emerged to serve this need, but many of them charge equivalent interest rates upwards of 20 or 50 percent. These rates can compromise the stability of the businesses that ultimately provide stability to our communities.

Participate in a financial system for communities, by communities

Join a growing community of lenders regenerating their local economies through finance. Participate in a loan for a small business. Grow your business with your community. Invest in the success of your neighbor.

That's the spirit behind Community Sourced Capital's motto: Fund the world you want to live in.
