I'm and Ex-chef turned contractor, I mean a Chef's chef. I worked through Michelin starred restaurants, started the Bay Areas first new school food truck and ran some top restaurants in the Bay Area. My wife and I had kids later in life started at 37 and at 40 I decided I needed to change things up to be around more and be the father I wanted to be. I started a little woodshop and building custom reclaimed furniture, got a call from a buddy building pools in Hawaii. Moved the Family out here nearly 4 years ago. After i Picked up my concrete contractors license JMK Design & Co. started coming together as a custom concrete company doing outdoor kitchen components for GCs. I also promoted some of my reclaimed wood creations and started getting some orders for custom tables and bars for restaurants and residential customers. It became clear I really needed to focus my business on being not only a custom creator of these things but also a gallery showroom to showcase, not only my work but the work of other artisans and makers doing kitchen related works. I also would like to feature some high quality outdoor kitchen equipment and components.

I started the process and built a business plan for the concept but realized I don't want to take the plunge into such a project here on Hawaii. I want to get the kids back to the mainland and in a community where my unique work and idea will fit and I can see raising the kids through High School.

After entertaining an investment opportunity in Sonoma co. and just returning from exploring Austin, Tx as an option. I'm narrowing down the target destination to Santa Barbara where I had considered taking this concept since the beginning. I think it just fits and the market exists for our door living spaces and high quality Chef kitchens indoors and out.

I currently hold a concrete lic in Hawaii but in CA. I would go for a General Contractors and Design Lic. My business plan is built around a large shop and showroom on real property but I could start with a proof of concept on a smaller scale as a renter. The business plan is looking for 2.5 mil but I could start a proof of concept for 10-20% of that.

PS. The pitch deck attached is based on a location and with a partner that no longer exist. Santa Barbara is a new market I need to reposition my plan for. I'm hoping what info I have provided painted a clear enough picture and the details will have to be adjusted
