CULLINAN KICKSTART PROGRAM BRINGS LOCAL BAKERY AND CAFÉ TO QUINCY MALL
(Peoria, IL – August 15, 2017) – Cullinan Properties, Ltd. is welcoming a new small business to Quincy Mall. Sidell’s Bakery & Diner, a full-service bakery and diner offering breakfast and lunch options, is the first small business to come to Quincy Mall through the Cullinan Kickstart program.
Sidell’s Bakery & Diner will offer a full range of baked goods, coffee and refreshments, as well as a breakfast and lunch menu featuring freshly cooked meals. Everything served at the bakery and café is made from scratch in-house, with a focus on generous portions and quick, quality service.
Owners Jon and Nicole Sidell envisioned a mixed bakery and diner concept as a way to combine their two passions. Nicole is an experienced Le Cordon Bleu baker and Jon has spent many years in the restaurant industry. “The diner aspect is second nature to me and my wife wanted to have a bakery, so I thought this was the perfect combination,” stated Jon Sidell.
Cullinan Kickstart is a small business financing program aimed at attracting new or expanding area businesses to Quincy Mall. Launched in June, the program offers entrepreneurs and small businesses a variety of lease and financing options specifically tailored to the needs of each qualifying business to help counter start-up challenges and complement the lineup of national retailers at the mall.
“Through the Cullinan Kickstart program, we’re thrilled to have another food and dining option for visitors to Quincy Mall,” stated Sean Garrett, President of Acquisitions and Director of Community Relations for Cullinan Properties. “The Kickstart program was designed to help create small businesses and jobs in Quincy and we look forward to assisting additional entrepreneurs in Quincy going forward.”
“We thought the Kickstart program was too good of an opportunity to pass up,” stated Sidell. “It seemed like a no brainer to us.”
Sidell’s Bakery & Diner will be located on the west end of the mall near the Slumberland Furniture currently under construction. The bakery and diner is expected to open in September. Entrepreneurs looking to launch or expand a business utilizing the Kickstart program benefits should contact Quincy Mall for more information.
