Dear Nouns - My name is Indra tor, and I would like to propose a small grant or funding chance for the UK’s first ever 24-hour un-staffed ramen bar with an NFT gallery and NFT, which allows the owner to eat for free at any location.
Our project is currently being covered in the news in the UK. You can discover more of this at our twitter @ez24ramen and it is gaining a lot of excitement.
Why a Ramen bar - Over the pandemic, we have seen people’s eating habits and way of life change with remote working and schedules now being different. There has been a rise in people wishing to eat alone or have a contactless experience. We choose ramen because in the UK over 400 million packets are eaten each year up 100 million over the pandemic.
We also believe in supporting students and the local community and wanted to create a place that was cheap to eat at and also allow customers to choose how to use their time at our restaurant.
Our business is a complete business that has a model built around subscriptions and working with existing NFT projects to generate money. The business is open to everyone and is not just focused at the web 3 world.
The reason for this is personally, I belive we need to start showing more real-world utility to people on the outside. We need a more organic place for them to learn about NFTs.
As much as NFT galleries are great for showcasing PFP and other art projects, most people never step foot in one.
With EZ ramen, every store has a gallery our oxford store will feature over 44 artists already selected to be showcased. We have business models and ideas around this also.
Our NFT drop called the Mukbang collection offers free food at any location, we wish to expand all over the country and then to Europe and beyond.
The reason for the NFT is simple we want to allow people to eat good food for free and also to showcase a real-world use for an NFT.
It’s hard to explain the benefit of an NFT to someone when using words like staking, burning, airdrops, whitelist etc.
Our NFT you can explain like this: Own this and get free food. I can easily explain that to every mother in the country.
We would be happy to work with Nouns in any way possible we can give access to our stores. We are open to any kind of deal for what we are asking.
we are asking for 150 to 200k to be able to open and operate a store for 12 months and allow the store the chance to gain a community and subscriber base. At this point, our NFT sales and sales from the subscriptions can easily secure the business and open more stores to let us grow.
We are more than happy to discuss anything else or answer any questions
you can find a lot of the information on our website, which is linked to our Twitter.
Thank you for your time, and sorry if this is the wrong place for this.
