inKind Referral Program
The hospitality industry is in the middle of an unprecedented crisis. There's no restaurant bail out like the banks got in '08 because our industry is made up of thousands of hard working small businesses, so Congress don't listen to our voices.

We want to help industry folks being able to support themselves, so have set up a referral program for our product.

We help restaurants raise money from their local community by selling supercharged gift cards (they come with a bonus and are redeemed through our app).

If you refer a restaurant, we will pay 5% of each gift card to you and those who help you bring the restaurant onboard.

An inKind Success Story
Himitsu, Hot Lola's and Emilie's
Semifinalist, Rising Star Chef of the Year 2017
Finalist, Rising Star Chef of the Year 2018
"10 Best New Chefs 2018" by Food & Wine Magazine
Eater DC's Editor, Restaurant of the Year
The Success Story
Kevin Tien and Carlie Steiner opened Himitsu, a New Japanese restaurant, in an up-and-coming neighborhood in Washington, DC in November 2016. It's intimate, delicious, and quickly gained rave reviews by the most prestigious local and national food critics. Chef Kevin has been named one of Food and Wine's Chefs of the Year 2018, has appeared on Iron Chef and received multiple James Beard nominations.

With stellar resumes, both having completed stints at Jose Andres' Minibar, as well as time at Pineapple & Pearls (DC) and Uchi (Texas), this was always going to be a very special restaurant. The bar program is as interesting and diverse as the food, with every sip and bite at Himitsu delighting your senses.

The duo took over an existing restaurant space and so just needed a small capital injection to get the business off the ground - redecorating the space to make it their own, buying inventory and some additional equipment.
As partners who are very focused on costs and margin, they immediately saw the value in financing through selling credit and how they could service the credit for less than the cost of the financing they were asking for.

inKind helped them sell enough House Accounts to redecorate and buy opening inventory and the additional equipment they needed.
