Do it illegally because they make it impossible for you to make money and California will always have their hand in your pockets.

the only gray area I think that they are onto is that when they get approved for a pop-up location, a place that pays them to come cook, they are making extra food and selling it. Which again no direct sales are allowed or merchant sales but still.

My question is as a BBQ caterer and cook for hire business, can you make money? Is it worth it? Either way I am invested thousands to find out and I know that the smoker trailer has resale value so it will not be a total wash.
BigMista is on here sometimes, but if you search for @realbigmista on Instagram and DM him, he can give you some pointers. After running two restaurants, he "retired". "Retired" means he is running a catering business and launching new book.
