Provide us with some background on your products and services.
The Savory Swine has been operating in downtown Columbus, IN for the past five years, offering premium cuts of the freshest meats, deli sandwiches, meat and cheese boards, and a robust wine selection. We are now looking to expand to a second location in Indianapolis. This expansion plan has developed into a joint venture with Beermiscuous, a craft beer bar and gathering place, where we will share retail space and capitalize from our combined target customer segments.
How do you sell your product or service?
All of our products are sold out of our retail locations. The modern, clean design of our shop showcases premium cuts of the freshest red meats. High, butcher-block style tables accommodate you while you enjoy a deli sandwich, a meat and cheese board, or sip on a glass of wine, while your order is being completed. There’s also a glassed-in cutting room, where you can view the cleanliness and workmanship.
Who are your target customers?
Our target customers are selective and value quality of product and atmosphere, over cost and mainstream. Working professionals and those who have adopted urban, modern living lifestyles. Those who seek a unique retail experience, in a social gathering environment. The Savory Swine will also target local businesses for lunch catering and after hour wine/beer events.
Do you have current customers?
The Savory Swine enjoys a loyal customer base. Located in the "front yard" of Cummins Global Headquarters in Columbus, IN, we have served not only the Cummins corporate community, but also Faurecia, Enkei, Toyota, SIHO, and many other local companies and their families. We participate in city events and support other local restaurants and small businesses. The new location in Indianapolis is strategically chosen next to the new Cummins Corporate Distribution building, where many loyal Swine fans have been assigned.
Who are your competitors?
The nearest competitor to the Indianapolis location would be Kincaids Meat shop, located near Butler University. Kincaids is a traditional butcher shop, selling only meats and other grocery items. Counter service only, they do not offer deli or wine service.
What is your competitive advantage?
The Savory Swine is the only business of its kind. Joining together with Beermiscuous, a craft beer cafe, will truly create the most unique upscale foodie retail shop in all of downtown Indianapolis. Enjoy a glass of wine or craft beer while socializing with friends, order a fresh house-made burger patty or premium cut steak to take home for the grill, sample imported cheeses and locally-crafted meats, or try a butcher-shop-bistro style deli sandwich. The location at Market and New Jersey is central to the downtown living expansion that is now underway. Nearby neighborhoods such as Lockerbie and Fountain Square also provide an accessible customer base. Our store will also have outdoor sidewalk patio seating, and direct access to the courtyard within the Artistry building.
With the planned Whole Foods store across the way, the timing is of great advantage for The Savory Swine to attract our shared target market.

Expressing Interest FAQ
Expressing interest covers a few different functions. First, it acts as your indication to the business that you have a potential interest in considering an investment. It is also the means by which you are able to access additional materials from the business. The reason you must express interest to view this information is so that the business can keep track of who has accessed their sometimes confidential information. Lastly, expressing interest allows you to keep in touch and stay updated on the progress of the business as they work through their fundraise.
An expression of interest is non-binding. Providing a dollar amount of interest to the business is exclusively a way for them to get a better understanding of whether there is sufficient aggregate interest from investors to support their fundraise goals. If you do not provide a dollar amount to the business, this is fine, but they may decide to cancel their fundraise if they do not have a clear enough picture as to whether there is enough interest to meet their goals.
Yes. Interest can be cancelled at any time, and after cancelling the business will have no means by which to contact you. If you cancel your interest, you can always express interest again if you change your mind.
Yes. The business will be able to contact you through Localstake Marketplace platform messaging. They will not receive any other personal contact information (i.e. email address, phone number, etc.).
When you express interest in a business, they will receive a notification that you are interested. On their investor management interface, they will see your name, state of residence, occupation, and amount of investment.
Once you've indicated interest, you can commit to invest or provide feedback to the business about your potential investment.
Committing to Invest FAQ
Committing to invest should constitute a binding commitment on the part of the investor that you are going to follow through on investing the amount you have provided to the business. You should only commit to invest once you are sure that you want to invest in the opportunity.
Your commitment will make you eligible to receive any perks available to investors for which you meet applicable eligibility requirements. Note that you are not guaranteed a spot in the fundraise until the business has approved your investment. Once you have committed and the business has finalized their investment terms, you can continue on to complete your investment and submit it to the business for approval.
A commitment shoud be treated as binding. If you do not plan to move forward with an investment, you should not commit to doing so. However, you are not irrevocably committed to investing until 3 days after the business has approved your investment and countersigned your investment documents.
You can commit to invest at any time. Commitments help show traction in the fundraise to other investors, so the earlier you are ready to make your commitment, the better. This will help the business in its efforts to attract additional investors to their fundraise.
The business owners are the only people that will have this information. No other investors will know that you committed to invest, only that someone committed to invest. The aggregate amount of commitments is shared with other interested investors.
No. You will still need to provide an electronic signature on the investment documents and select a method to transfer your funds. You will need to wait to complete these steps until the business has finalized their investment terms.
Once you have committed to invest, you will review and sign the investment documents.
Signing Documents FAQ
When you make an investment in a business, you enter into legally binding contract that outlines your rights as an investor. The specific documents you sign will vary based upon the type of security you are investing in (i.e. debt or equity). Every investment will include an investor questionnaire document that will be pre-populated with information from your investment account that provides proof of your eligibility to invest in the offering. These documents act as your proof of investment and provide all of the details about your investment and your role as an investor. You should read these documents carefully before investing.
Your investment documents will be pre-populated with information from your investment account to help identify you, including your SSN which the business needs in order to produce tax documents for your investment. There will also be information about your personal financial situation on the documents to help provide proof of your eligibility to invest in the offering.
In order to sign the documents, you will use our proprietary e-signature tool. You will have the opportunity to review each document that you will be signing and then select a signature or create your own to be added to the documents.
Yes, once the business has accepted your investment and countersigned your investment documents, a copy of your signed agreement will be stored on your Investment Portfolio page on Localstake Marketplace.

Businesses send payments to investors over the Localstake Marketplace platform
If the business you invest in reaches their funding goal, they will be making payments to you over the Localstake Marketplace platform. If you use electronic transfer for your investment, these payments will be made back to the bank account you linked for your electronic transfer. If you do not set up an electronic transfer for your initial investment, you may do so on your bank account page once you log in.
If the business you invest in does not reach their funding goal, your investment funds do not need to be transferred to the business and will remain in your account.
