Baldwin Purr Palace All of these cats would like to offer their help to our economy! So What is a Cat Café? Ingredients: -Light Snacks and tea -25-30 Cats in a play room -People to play with the cats Think of it as a cross between a coffee shop and adoption center • A Cat Café is a light café specialized in creating a social interaction between people and cats. The business would allow adoption and social acclimation for the local stray population, as well as giving visitors a peaceful place to play with many friendly cats and the medical and mental benefits they bring. Who is this café for? Our main visitors will be tourists, especially women and children who were not interested in hunting during their visit to Baldwin. We will have many nice cats available for adoption, all of which will be looking for new homes, this will primarily be for the locals, and relative locals. Also for the tourists, we will have a selection of specialty breed cats, for those searching for unusual furry friends. Health Benefits of a Cat’s Purr Marketing • We intend to market the café by means of online marketing, especially through social media, as well as billboards and word of mouth, not excluding TV, since this kind of establishment is the first of it’s kind on the east coast. Tourism and Schools • This Cat Café would be the 7th in the US, and the first of it’s kind permanently on the Eastern Coast. There have been no failed cat cafes yet! • We have contacted several MI schools to bring attention to this project, rewarding the winner with promotion and a Purr Palacethemed car. Fund Raising • While we already own the primary building and land that will be used to begin the project, we will be funding this project through Crowd Funding, provided by Indiegogo.com • This is a program for raising funds through large amounts of supporters, rather than a single financier. Food Preparation • Food will be prepared in it’s own building, away from the cats, and served behind a glass case. This will consist of light snacks and refreshments. Sorry, there will be no alcohol at this location (the cats do not approve). Safety for the Residents • We will be keeping a dedicated nurse and vet on staff to handle any accidents on site, as well as giving shots to the new cats that come in. These cats will be slowly acclimated to people, until they are ready to find a home. Project Layout Buildings Our Building on the left will be completed and used as the primary office and cat area. The building on the right will be salvaged and removed. The other 3 will be acquired building kits as pictured on the right. Additional Ideas • If allowed, we also would like to build a stage on premises for storytelling and cat performances for locals and tourists alike. Thank You for Your time, and we look forward to starting our project soon!
