Bacon. Butter. Waffle. Oh my.
Making one of these golden delights would be enough to brighten anybody’s day. But for the creators of The Wafel Shop, this most recent batch is a little extra sweet. As of yesterday, the Kickstarter-backed project has a permanent home in a downtown Ann Arbor storefront.
Like many creators, the duo behind The Wafel Shop hit a few snags along the way — and discovered that it can be tough to delay a dream. When their seemingly ideal space came up short, there was plenty of incentive to forge ahead anyway, given the months of work and planning already invested in the idea. But the creators made the difficult call to walk away, delaying their project while perhaps saving it, too.
Now, the perfect home is theirs — and they still have the budget to move in and get cooking. It’s frustrating when the right call and the fastest way forward seem to be at odds. But for the creators and backers of The Wafel Shop, that first bite will be just a little bit sweeter.
