While we’re optimistic about the future of the Whitewater Grocery Co., this is a reasonable question from any Owner. The answer is simple. If the Whitewater Grocery Co. fails to open, we will return money to our Owners, minus the expenses incurred in our startup efforts (e.g., Ownership campaign, site search, producing collateral, running our website, hiring consultants, training and development, etc.). This may be all of your money, a portion of your money or it actually may be none of it, depending on where we are in the process. We are committed to carefully managing our costs and our financial health.
