A group of young professionals with expertise in the communications and public relations field plan to open a restaurant in the REO Town district near downtown Lansing within 90 days, by tapping into the creativity of the local community and crowdsourcing every stage.
Promoted by a 14 member group, REO Eats is planning to generate excitement and ideas through Facebook and Twitter to get people involved with the project. While the location for the restaurant has been finalized at the former Dalmatian’s Firehouse Grill, their aim is to crowdsource the entire restaurant project by getting input on the name, design, theme, menu, and pricing from the local crowd.
