We are raising money to get a food truck and everything that goes inside of it! Our goal is to travel around and serve our delicious pretzels while teaching life and job skills to young adults with Asperger's while they work with us!

Theresa’s Twists- was founded for the purpose and mission of empowering young adults with Asperger’s Syndrome (autism spectrum) to become productive and employable persons and future assets to organizations, companies, and businesses.

 

 

Monies will go for..

-Food Truck

-Food and Permit Licenses

- Food Truck Equipment

-Accounting software 

- Marketing and Advertising

- Supplies for Pretzels

- Training Resources for Employees with Asperger's

Risks and challenges

One of the challenges will be the stress working with folks with disabilities. We are currently building creative collaborations with colleges, autism organizations, businesses and companies that understand this unique struggle.

Also, we have done years of last testing and believe our product is awesome. We also know that point of sale might be slower than some customer service food trucks due to work force, but we will be diligent about educating the public about the mission, vision and values for Theresa's Twists.

Third, is the on going struggle to be financially profitable and scalable. We are fortunate to have family members in the fields of education, business, social media and marketing.

We have refined our business plan for four years and passed it through several business planners for approval. We also believe we will have the funds , to be operational the first year.
