For $125. you have a 1 in 640 chance of winning your own Café!

By
Real Estate Agent with Sotheby's International Realty Canada - Brokerage

My friends, who own the Borrowed Earth Café in Downers Grove, IL  (click here for more info on the Village) are having a contest to award their Café to one lucky winner.

They are providing a 1 in 640 chance of WINNING!!

 

 

The prize is the assets of Borrowed Earth Café.   The Owners will be transferring to the Winner the assets of this business. 

In a nutshell, all that is required is an essay of no more than 200 words stating why you feel you should be the deserving winner,  plus an entrance fee of $125. USD.  The contest is limited to 640 entrants.

The winner will get the ready-to-run café space, along with the 30 seats inside and 20 seats outside on the patio.

The full contest rules can be found here:  CONTEST RULES

 

GOOD LUCK TO EVERYONE!!

 PS   Latest in from the owners . . .

Wow! This is just wonderful! Mowgli Studio read the Chicago Tribune article about the contest for our restaurant and posted this!

"Whoa!  If you enter Borrowed Earth Cafe's contest + win, Mowgli Studio will rebrand it for free (logo, menu, facebook, website, environmentals, whatever you want)!"

^^^ That in itself is worth a pretty penny!

What a neat idea. I'd like to play, but if I won....what would I do?  Well, before that, I better compose on heck of an amazing essay.

Keep us posted when this is over.

Very creative Susan and a great opportunity for someone that wants to own a business and would not otherwise have had a way to accomplish that goal.

Make it a great weekend!

Joe Petrowsky I think these two are brilliant!!!  They've certainly been successful themselves with their own cafe specializing in raw foods.  Someone is going to be very fortunate indeed!

Debbie Reynolds This could be the break that someone has been waiting for . . .  your own fully stocked restaurant for $125 with free rebranding if desired.  Better chance than Hell's Kitchen with Gordon Ramsy, LOL
