About this project
AUSSIE'S KEBABS is looking to join the food truck craze in downtown Minneapolis, 2012. Our mission is to transfer the laid back; low key feel of Australia found kebabs to Minneapolis through the great individuals who make up our community!
Minneapolis' first to strictly serve doner kebabs, a delicious food found throughout the world. Made of lamb meat or chicken, cut off a vertical broiler, accompanied by fresh and locally grown lettuce, onions, and tomatoes. Combined with a variety of chili sauces from garlic to pineapple chili, we offer a taste for all palates. The Aussie-Haus kebabs are specific to those found in Eastern Australia where they are put in to a sandwich press to give it a crispy, grilled taste that’s easy to eat on the run.
Aussie's Kebabs goal of bringing local, fresh but culturally diverse foods to the streets of Minneapolis will need the help of you to get off the floor, and on the streets!!
No matter where you travel in the word, food brings people together. Likewise in order for us to give back to our community we need for you, out of the box thinkers, to come together and help Aussies Kebabs. The more diverse, cultured and educated we make our communities can only help strengthen us as individuals, which in turn betters the entire community. My experiences and opportunities traveling will hopefully enlighten others on what is out there in the world, inspiring them to find out for themselves. Aussie’s Kebabs goal isn’t necessarily to have the best kebab ever, but to show people in our community something different!
Where will the money go?
Money donated from KickStarter will be used in coordination with a loan from Women’s Venture, a Minneapolis based non-profit organization. We are requesting a total loan amount of $35,894.00 which consists largely of equipment to outfit our trailer, 2 weeks operating expense along with 2 weeks of inventory. Equipment needs includes but not limited to 2 vertical broilers, a sandwich prep table, Honda generator (very nice), fire ansul system, 3 bay compartment sink with one hand washing sink, graphics and installation which amounts to $23,964. 2 weeks of inventory will add another $4,280.00 and 2 weeks of payroll at $2,160. We also need to purchase a truck to pull our trailer and need $3,000 to put on a down payment for this. The remaining amount will be used for minor advertising, insurance, supplies, etc.
This will be the basis of our operating equipment and are looking for additional collateral to ensure a successful operation.
Building the Aussie Experience!!!
Our concept and ideas have traveled from the sunshine coast to Middle America!!! Founder Chris Millner has traveled to Australia, New Zealand and other south pacific countries and feels the need to bring a little bit of that back with him. We may not have a surf spot but with 10,000 lakes, diverse culture and Minnesota nice, you might be mistaken for walking the beaches of eastern Australia while snacking on your kebab!
