Anand Saha would like to buy a parcel of land and build a new location that would house both of his growing businesses, Vienna Ice Café and Mozart’s Bakery and Piano Café, but he needs your help. He found out about the Mission: Small Business program sponsored by Chase and LivingSocial and submitted an application to hopefully be awarded a grant. The program will be awarding up to 12 individual grants of $250,000 to 12 small businesses across the United States.
With his application submitted, he needs community support and your votes. He needs to reach 250 votes to have his application be eligible to be viewed by the judges. When eligible, the businesses will be reviewed by a panel of small-business experts who will select the final Grant Recipients.
“My goal is to have a huge, awesome patio,” says Saha. “This grant would help us secure the rest of the funding necessary for this project, and it would create jobs for the Clintonville neighborhood.”
To vote for Mozart’s, you must first visit the Mission: Small Business site and click the ‘log in with your Facebook account’ button. There is no other log in option besides Facebook. Once logged in, search for Mozart’s Bakery & Piano Cafe to vote.
The voting period ends: June 30, 2012, 11:59pm eastern time.
Anand shared with us his plans for the new 3,000 square foot building with patio space. Designs are by Tim Lai ArchitecT.
