In an effort to keep this simple and easy for all of us I will break the 512HOTDOGS program down into 3 parts.
- Ease of access and availability for friends and family (both near and far, and old and new) to help support our grand adventure in customer service known as MrPfranks.
- A pre-sale opportunity for those who wish to take advantage of it, and plan to visit us in the near future, all while saving a bit of coin. :)
- A blatant marketing foray into a new and undiscovered area. With the hope of spreading the word to more and more people about our product and the experience of getting your pfrank the way YOU want it!
As MrsPfranks and I are both from "up-north" originally ( Michigan for her, Minnesota for me) and both military Veterans (her 14 years US Army, myself 5 years US Navy) our extended families and friend bases are geographically distant from our store location ( some even overseas!). This program will bring one easy way for all those we know to support us.
For the many who have visited us, and graciously allowed us to serve you, this is yet another way to support your local, self funded, "mom and pop" Veteran-owned customer service focused hot dog shop, in the heart of Pflugerville Texas. Your support can help ensure we will be around to serve you for the future! Oh and the gifts/rewards, well those can not hurt either can they :)
As for the blatant marketing, the use of a catchy area-based name (512HOTDOGS.com) and the exposure to new folks here on Kickstarter, can only (we hope) generate more buzz in our area, thereby giving us more opportunity to serve! Exposing more folks to MrPfranks and Pflugerville as a whole, is part and parcel what we are about.

WHAT WILL YOU USE THE MONEY FOR? a great question, and the one that really matters. To be pfrank (sorry I couldn't resist) the short answer is this. Liquidity. Growth. Freedom. As simple as that.
We are completely self (under)funded, and have been successfully operating for almost 6 months, we have been embraced by the local school system, and residents. We have a number of opportunities coming in the near future and are trending upwards in all categories, yet we have missed other opportunities for service, due to liquidity issues and the inability to expand ( read that as short on cash flow and cannot afford a food truck or trailer :P) We have no bank loans and would prefer to keep it that way if at all possible.
We do not, now or ever, wish to have our ability to serve or show compassion, limited. So the liquidity can lead to growth which can ensure continued freedom.
We understand that this is a one time only opportunity, and have kept the goal low and time-frame short to encourage successful completion. We would LOVE to over-fund this project by a LONG ways, but we understand that we are not making potato salad here. :) All supporters, regardless of level, will be thanked on WWW.512hotdogs.info
Thank you in advance for your love and support, we hope to serve you and keep serving you for a long time in the future.
