One World Everybody Eats Commends EAT Café and Highlights Non-Profit Restaurant Challenges

One World Everybody Eats Commends EAT Café and Highlights Non-Profit Restaurant Challenges

As we say goodbye to Drexel University’s EAT Café we commend the University for the work it has done in West Philadelphia.  Thousands of people ate, gave, and supported EAT Café and its community.   

Pay-what-you-can restaurants are not exempt from the same challenges of traditional restaurants.  According to the University of Ohio, 60% of traditional restaurants fail in the first year, and 80% of traditional restaurants fail in 5 years. 

Nonprofit restaurants have added restrictions on access to capital; pressure to immediately build community; and expectations to solve large social issues, while also operating a fully functional restaurant.  This is why nonprofit restaurants need extra support including grants, fundraising, and organizations like One World Everybody Eats.
