Rise of the Rest

Could your idea be the next Chipotle or Sweetgreen? 

Steve Case, the man who co-founded AOL, is looking to invest in the next big restaurant pitch, and has promised $100,000 to one or more companies or ideas pitched to him per day as part of an upcoming search for the next big restaurateur

Case previously invested $22 million in Sweetgreen, the farm-to-table salad operation which now has locations in DC, New York City, Maryland, and, soon, California.

Case’s investment firm, Revolution, is looking for an entrepreneur with the right idea for a high-growth concept that understands consumer interests and the growing role of technology in the restaurant industry — ordering apps, for example.

If you think you have the right restaurant concept for Case, be prepared to prove that you have a solid team with excellent leadership, understand how to scale employment and contribute to the economy, and know how to “swing for the fences” with an idea that could potentially become a billion-dollar business.
