Vegan Eatery in Salt Lake City Seeks Start-Up Funds

Frisch hopes to raise $8,000 using community-funding platform Kickstarter before its May 20 deadline.

Months after being crowned the Next Great Vegan City in the March+April edition of VegNews Magazine, Salt Lake City may soon have another cruelty-free establishment if a Kickstarter fundraising campaign succeeds. Compassionate eatery Frisch has turned to the crowdsourced fundraising platform in the hope of obtaining $8,000 for kitchen renovations and appliances, as well as for initial food purchases from local farms. The up-and-coming, low-waste restaurant has already secured a location in a historical Salt Lake City building, where it plans to dole out delicious dishes such as Kale and Mushroom Frittatas, Enlightened Egg Salad, and Gluten-Free Almond Butter Crispies.
