Ian of Leavened opened his dream bakery during COVID with investments from 57 Clevelanders

Lead the charge for restaurant revitalization

Where others see distress, you see potential. Instead of empty storefronts or closed businesses, you see a bustling opening night and the opportunity to breathe new life into a shuttered space.


Be the first in your neighborhood to reopen as restrictions lift. Put your knowledge and skills to action and achieve your restaurant dream.

Assemble your mise en place and get the burners going

Now is the time to get cooking on your restaurant dream. You’ve got the game plan and the talent—now all you need is some dough to make it happen. 

A Honeycomb crowdfunded loan helps you bring back your crew and fund your opening: working capital, equipment, build-outs, marketing, and more!


Have your customers lined up out the door

Your community is hungry for your next restaurant venture. Give your customers a chance to invest in your success and fund the resurgence of the neighborhoods that you hold so dearly.



Once invested, they’ll be lining up out the door from day one and keep coming back for seconds.
