inKind Community Financing
Success Story: Zola
Chef & Owner Guillaume Bienaime
Zola is a fine-casual French restaurant in Palo Alto, CA with a check average of $70 per person. Zola came to inKind to obtain capital to complete construction on a bar area it was adding to the restaurant. We launched the campaign on February 25th and the response from the community has been tremendous, having sold $40,500 by March 13th. The owner/operator of Zola, Guilluame, is much loved by the restaurant's regulars. Through the inKind platform, his regulars and new diners can purchase high dollar House Accounts with bonus credits. On average, House Account purchasers are paying $765 per transaction.

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, Zola closed its door on March 14th. Zola partnered with inKind to launch another campaign post-COVID-19 in hope of getting the community's support to weather the challenges during this unprecedented time. We raised $20,750 in three days through House Accounts since the launch of the campaign.
