Kickstarter has created a Google Map that shows more than 500 restaurant projects that have been successfully funded through the site.
Since Kickstarter launched it has help fund over 500 restaurant projects in US. Whether that be food trucks, refurbishments or launching a whole new business – the American food industry has benefited greatly from the crowdfunding site. Now, people can see exactly where these restaurants are, with the interactive Google Maps Engine which shows all the funded restaurants in the country. When you click on a pin you can see a description of the restaurant, how much money they raised and their original Kickstarter campaign.
Kickstart CEO Yancey Strickler told Eater that restaurants were going to become more highlighted on the site, getting their own fundraising subcategory. Considering the fact that a restaurant, Superior Motors near Pittsburgh, recently broke records and raised over $300,000, a new subcategory would be welcome as the site becomes an accepted source of restaurant financing.
