Announcing our Kickstarter Campaign!
We’ve recently launched a Kickstarter campaign in order to attend the Global Food Tourism Conference! Richmond’s culinary community deserves a food tour business that’s on par with some of the world’s best, and attending this conference will help River City Food Tours become just that.
There are two different backing levels available on our Kickstarter campaign:
$10 – backers at this level will receive a River City Food Tours key chain bottle opener
$45 – backers at this level will receive the bottle opener PLUS a ticket to a future food tour of their choosing! And since a ticket typically costs $50, this is a great time to get yours!
Here’s our full press release:
River City Food Tours Launches Kickstarter Campaign
On August 13th, River City Food Tours launched a Kickstarter campaign to send founder Brian Beard to the Global Food Tourism Conference in Chicago October 19-20th. The campaign will run until September 3rd, and seeks to raise $1,000 to cover the cost of attendance, travel, and accommodation.
Richmond has a world-class culinary community, and deserves a world-class food tour business to complement and showcase our chefs and restaurants. At the conference, Beard will learn from some of the most accomplished professionals in the Food Tourism industry, and bring their ideas to life in Richmond.
“One of the most valuable actions I’ve taken since starting River City Food Tours was reaching out to food tour professionals around the country for advice,” said Beard. “Attending the Global Food Tourism Conference will introduce me to the people, tools, and ideas needed to take River City Food Tours to the next level, and do so in a way that compliments the already-vibrant food scene in Richmond.”
There are two contribution levels for potential backers to consider, one of which will offer the donor a River City Food Tours ticket at a lower-than-retail price point.
