After about a million and one roadblocks and finding the right people to talk with we are doing our first event with our food cart! We are excited to announce we will be in the Stroll Kaysville Event!
The whole process was taking longer than we had anticipated because we were trying to get the wrong type of permitting for our cart. After all the delay I decided to go to the Health Department and was able to talk to an employee that steered us in the right direction and helped us to get our permit that same day.
Of course we are extremely excited to start, but apprehensive of possible results and everything that goes into being successful at our first event! I have been running around like a chicken with its head cut off trying to tie up any loose ends or things that we need to get done beforehand. I’m sure I will forget things, but hey that’s what happens when you are doing something new.
After getting emails saying we were accepted into the event I had to call the Health Department to advise them of our event, they require you to call before all of your events, and then I was able to mount the back panel and trailer plate.
I also have been working with Square POS to enter all of our menu items, work on pricing, and get direct deposit all squared away. (see what I did there?)
There are a lot of small details, if you know anyone or are interested in starting your own food cart send them my way and maybe I could help them figure some things out.
