About this project

Food and cooking has been a passion of mine since college.  I opted to not follow my dream right away because I wanted to have a family and be a stay at home mom for my kids. I honed my skills at home where I learned to create healthy yet crazy delicious Korean and Asian dishes. My kids are now all in school and it is time to unleash my culinary skills on San Antonio. There are very few Asian options in the current Food Truck offerings in the area and even fewer make authentic Asian fare. I want to introduce San Antonio Food Truck aficionados to my menu of gluten free and locally sourced Spicy Asian street food.  We will be making everything including a number of kimchi from scratch.  

We are gaining popularity based on our name alone so far and it appears we will also do a brisk business in CockAsian branded apparel. We are designing these now along with the wrap for our truck.

Currently I have all my background checks, certifications, business structure done and Advertising started  and am simply trying to find a truck to meet my needs. This is turning out to be more difficult than I had planned but I can always have a truck built which simply make for a longer time line. We can start serving within days of receiving our truck. The kickstarter funds will go for permits, supplies and any additional equipment needed.

Risks and challenges

Every entrepreneur that starts a food truck know that the struggle has just begun once you have your truck and are ready to start serving food. The next struggle is getting scheduled into venues and building up your social media presence. I have years of experience with social media and I think I have made some good connections in the San Antonio food truck scene so my struggle will be to get my food in the door with the venues. I don't foresee much of an issue with getting into venues schedules because my truck offers food items that are available no where else in San Antonio.
