About the project
Patti house has outgrown its current setting!
The aim was always to move to larger premises but we had a three year plan in mind, the response to Patti house products has been amazing and has accelerated these plans to just 12 months!
The feedback we are getting is people love our food, our ethos and the atmosphere but want more access to it! with only ten seats in its current location we are super limited to how many people we can serve at one time.
We believe that Ilkeston and the surrounding area is ready for a Patti house resturaunt, a place where quality food and service is a given in a fun and music filled environment.
Your money would help us to:
*Move into larger premises
*Offer seating for 50+ customers
*Expand our current menu and offer plated sit down service
*Expand our opening hours to included evenings, late opening and weekends.
*Run events such as live music evenings, supper clubs, charity nights and seasonal gatherings
*Obtain a license to sell locally brewed and sourced alchohol
*Employ members of staff from the local area, offer training and programs to improve their skills base and future oppertunities.
To grow Patti house from one individuals dream to a substantial contributer in the local economy and helping to continue improving Ilkeston and creating the destination town I have every confidence we can be!!
We could reach our goal and be open for september 2015 if….
1000 people were to pledge £10
500 people were to pledge £20
400 people pledge £50
100 people pledge £100
As it says in the side column we are not asking for you to give the money to Patti house but to pre pay for services in advance.

A final note….
As you know Patti house likes to do things differently from the norm, crowd funding for business is a relatively new concept in England and I think for small businesses it can offer fantastic oppertunities to raise finance without a hefty loan repayment plan. I used my own savings opening Patti HQ Bath street and with a 3 year plan the idea was to fund expansion through profits, the speed of growth has meant that I have had to explore other methods. I am looking to raise 50% of the funds that I need to expand Patti house and take it to the next level. The remaining 50% will be raised through traditional means ie bank loan.
Crowd funding works a little like dragons den, if we can not raise the amount we set out to achieve then we get nothing, we can however exceed the amount initially set, just raising 50% would ensure the imediate future for Patti House, raising any more would allow us to accelerate our plans and dream much bigger!
Also in addition, if succesful, we pledge to support other local small business to make crowd funding applications with funding and practical support in the future when we are ourselves in a position to do so.
