Veg Eatery Seeks Support for Restaurant Equipment

North Carolina food entrepreneurs have only three days left to meet their Kickstarter goal.

Caroline Morrison and Siobhan Southern are hoping to open up Raleigh, NC’s first all-vegetarian restaurant, the Fiction Kitchen, and have taken to Kickstarter to help fund this project. So far the pair has collected more than $24,000 of their $36,000 goal with two days left until the project closes; if they do not meet their financial goal the project will not be funded. Donations will go toward purchasing new kitchen equipment that has not been used to cook non-vegetarian foods. Morrison and Southern have already proven their plant-based culinary success with popular monthly pop-up brunch sessions, offering dishes such as French Toast, Bacon and Huevos Rancheros, and Crab Cakes.
