Here we go!
So, we're legit!
Over the last months, we've been piecing the puzzle together.
I've got my Servsafe Cert, we've got insurance for catering and vending, and are getting set up in various counties in our area to vend and cater. We're also an established LLC and are all set with Uncle Sam.
This weekend, we'll be vending at a comp (while competing too) and are all set with HD permit. Going today to make the first (what seems) GIGANTIC purchase for supplies, food, drinks, etc. and take the official plunge.
I have to say, I'm a bit nervous, but not too much. We've done a lot of thinking and planning.
We're already booked for 2 other pretty big vending gigs later in the summer, have 3 or 4 catering gigs lined up and are talking with 2 different county farmer's markets to get rolling there, depending on those county's specific requirements.
This is the first step toward the big dream! Hope all this careful planning and investments pay off for us!
Thanks for all those here who (even unknowingly) have helped out with all the planning and thinking over the last months!
AND AWAY WE GO!!!!!!!
