Hi! Welcome to our Kickstarter! We are so glad you've made it this far, and we hope you will take a look through our project and choose to support our dream!

Press Waffle Company is a unique food truck and catering concept based in Dallas, TX that specializes in authentic Belgian waffles, savory waffle creations, and locally roasted coffee and espresso. We want to bring AUTHENTIC Belgian waffles to everyone in DFW!

We are raising money to take care of the last few things needed to get us on the road. From commissary fees, to permits, to a commercial dough mixer, we can't move forward until these things are taken care of! Watch the video above and keep reading below to find out how you can get involved!

OUR STORY

It all started 4 years ago when Bryan and his wife Rachel were traveling through Europe. They came across a small cafe in Edinburgh, Scotland and ordered waffles. What came to their table was unlike any waffle they had ever eaten. 

The VERY FIRST Liege waffle we ever experienced!

When they got home, Bryan set to work on figuring out how they could bring these waffles to their friends and family. Bryan and Rachel wanted them at their wedding so badly they asked every caterer in town, but no one could help. Bryan knew he would not be alone in his love for these waffles, and so he set forth to re-create them himself. 

After almost 4 years and countless recipes, Bryan dragged his brother Caleb into the venture and Press Waffle Company was born.

OUR WAFFLES

Press Waffle Company is on a mission to redefine the waffle experience in Dallas. We want to offer AUTHENTIC Belgian waffles made from real ingredients, time honored recipes, and crafted using artisanal baking techniques. We specialize in the Liege waffle, which is a buttery dough based waffle loaded up with caramelized clusters of Belgian pearl sugar in each crunchy bite. We think our waffles are better than anything you've ever had, and we want you to try them! But we need your help! Take a look at some of our waffles and just try not to let your stomach growl.

Risks and challenges

We will be on the road in the Fall of 2016 no matter what, but the funding of this Kickstarter ensures that we are more likely to stay on the road for a long time bringing waffles to as many people as we can. Many food trucks struggle with the first few months of their business because of the word of mouth nature of our business.

We know our product is great. We have an awesome truck. We will be working towards operational excellence and sound business practices to ensure that Press Waffle Company becomes a permanent part of the DFW food truck scene!

If you have any questions regarding our business or how the Kickstarter funds will be used, please email eat@presswaffleco.com and we will get back to you right away!

Thanks for your support!
