09 - GoFundMe Saves A Restaurant – $300k Debt on $1m Sales
1 day ago
Minimum wage is set to rise to $15 an hour next year – which really means $20 an hour for employers after you consider payroll tax and unemployment insurance. So restaurants like Cassava are hurting. An already tiny profit margin gets wiped out by skyrocketing wages and debt.
This week we hear from Yuka Ioroi, co-owner of Cassava - a trendy dining establishment in Richmond district of SF – how she and her husband Kris almost fell off the debt cliff ... before launching a cry for help within her community.
The same community that had called her "Gentrifier Number One".
Set to great jazz and hip hop beats, this 40 minute exploration of the human side of small business ... explores how technology is enabling her survival.
Yuka is using a new app – Pared – that calls itself the "Uber of the restaurant industry" to schedule workers on a contract basis for entry level jobs. And a GoFundMe campaign that created life support when she most needed it
