Last night we get a call on the business line. It's the Lawndale Farmers Market. The need a BBQ Vendor and they heard about us. They wat us to start tomorrow. Told them there was no way we could get our prep done that quickly but we can start next week.

Will have to get Glenn (my father-in-law) to work it with MrsMista's Aunt. We'll cook the food ahead of time and finish it there.

Whew! Things are moving quickly now!

I was just curious because Bigmista actually has the time to spend all day even a week day at a vending stand? Now I see why the banks are in trouble, the treasury guys aren't their desks. :icon_shock1:

It has everything to do with money. Just not Paper money. We help other banks, corporations and government entities track and manage their transactions.

Health Permit, Insurance, Biz license, seller's permit, sales tax,etc. More hoops than fees. PM MrsMista for more details.
