Slyde’s mantra is simple, gourmet, local. The neighborhood eatery will specialize in seasonal sliders, salads, soups and po’ boys.
Slyde is our name, but you’ll know us from our mantra: Simple, Gourmet, Local. You will want to support us because of our story, and that we are a true start up, born with the idea that a business can have a conscious mind, spirit, and soul. You will get to know us because our entire team will be visible not only in the business, but in the community. We’re comprised of brother and sister, husband and wife, friends and family. We have scratched, clawed, cried, yelled, screamed, laughed and celebrated all together on this journey to raise every dollar needed to bring our concept to life. Seasonal sliders, salads, soups and yes, po-boys will have you coming to check us out and coming back when you’re in the neighborhood. We’ll hope that you will support our effort to pay a living wage to our employees, making sure they have what they need to grow with us, and support themselves and their families. We think you might care that we will have a sustainable space, focused on being energy efficient, and reducing waste and our carbon footprint. We want you to feel as comfortable coming in and enjoying a breakfast slider and coffee with us in the AM or grabbing lunch or dinner in our dining area, from our carry out counter (the “Slyde-Thru”), ordering online, getting delivery, or using us to cater your office event or weekend party. We’d like for you to consider that we’ve utilized only Michigan based funding options including the Detroit Economic Growth Corporation, Detroit Development Fund, The Michigan Women’s Foundation and Michigan Saves to review and vet us as capable and competent entrepreneurs. By utilizing the help of Lifeline Business Consulting, SWOT City Detroit, Canvas Legal, Foodlab Detroit, and Score Detroit, we can help change the narrative that Detroit doesn’t have the resources or capabilities within city limits to help small businesses or start up’s. Along with all these resources, much is still required from the recipient. From LJ, Anitrah, Jen, Dana & Rayna, we are humbly asking for your vote as the 2018 Hatch Detroit Winner. Thank you.
