About this project

Get on the bus
Get on the bus

Imagine a night where you will be transported on the "food bus" under the careful and skilled hands of Chef Samantha. Your funds convert an old bus into this mobile food kitchen. I want to bring my food creativity, adventure and focus on local ingredients to you. 

Simply Red Bistro and Mama Red have been a long time tradition here in the Finger Lakes bringing what's great about southern food and old time traditions together. We have been on hiatus for a while but want to get back into the kitchen. This time in a "Bus". Some say it's trendy she says there's no better way  Giving her the ability to bring her style of cooking, ingredients and music to your location. 

We also want to host Cooking Classes-These classes will be set up in a series for both adults and kids alike. Using the fundamentals of cooking and grasping what's great about our regions ingredients, spices and farmers. 

And of course Private Dinners Hire Mama Red and her crew to provide a private dinner for you and your friends. Location is up too you. Having a food bus makes this possible to go just about anywhere and I am always willing to travel. 

Risks and challenges

Risks
Raising the money in time. I plan to use Facebook, email lists and pop-up dinners to make announcements for the kickstarter. Also plan to reach out to local media and radio to get print and audio coverage about the project.

Challenges
Finding the right bus that fits into our budget, renovations and timing. I have been actively searching and have found a couple good buses. I am recruiting the right team of experienced kitchen people to help with retrofitting the bus. Design and layout.
