David and Dawn Bain opened The Outside Inn in Sierra Vista AZ in 1993. Since then they’ve been the best restaurant in the area working with top ingredients and serving French inspired food to local acclaim. When it came time to plan for the next steps in their lives, rather than sell the building or the business they’re having an essay contest. 200 words and $125 gets you a chance to own the whole thing. By lowering the barrier to entry they’re hoping to pass along the chance of a lifetime to one lucky winner.
