Owners of the Daggwood Café have launched a Kickstarter campaign in an effort to get their new location off the ground.

Coral and Patrick Hendon moved from the restaurant's old spot at 736 E. Fort Lowell Road to student housing at 1800 N. Stone Ave. over the summer, but they hit a few snags along the way.

The original plan was to open the Stone Avenue property in addition to the original sandwich shop, at least for a little while. This was before their financial partner dropped out last December.

In March, the landlord at the original Daggwood, which the Hendons ran for a year, locked them out over a rent dispute. It took two months for the couple to get their equipment back.

Coral Hendon said the Stone Avenue property owners have been more than accommodating, covering a lot of the basics. The Kickstarter campaign is to raise money for a cooler and a general liability policy, to get the phone reactivated and for other modifications required by the health department.

They are asking for $1,000 they have until Dec. 5 to raise it.

The Hendons completely revamped the Daggwood menu after taking over the original restaurant over in 2012. They focused their menu of gourmet options, things like Carolina pork and meatball sandwiches.
