story of a dreamer.
Crudos Fusion Art began, as all great and unique places do, like a dream. The concept was based on owners’ experiences, principles, and passion to serve others as inspiration to create and share amazing food fusion and exciting drink trends.
Crudos’ mission is to build great memories for its staff, guests, and partners by pleasing all of them with care. Crudos has what it takes to passionately create a versatile and productive operation that will positively influence the community and the gastronomic industry.
Due to the success of their first restaurant located in Wynwood, Florida, the owners of Crudos Fusion Arts have received a considerable number of proposals to open new locations along with the State of Florida. Among these proposals, it is one made by the Okeydokey group, to open the second Fusion Arts Crude in the Brickell area, Miami - Florida, in 2019. For this reason, Crudos Fusion Arts needs to create a deliverable to show the benefits and opportunities of opening a new Crudos Fusion Arts to all possible investors.
