Organized Chaos Fast Fusion Food is the culmination of a life long dream to bring delicious street food with our flair to Kansas City.
So you're still interested enough in Organized Chaos to continue reading? So let me tell you a little about where we are in achieving our dream.
We started on this journey to chase a dream career as food truck owners and operators. We are not using Kickstarter to fully fund our dream, or to start us off, but rather we are 95% of the way to catching that dream and we are asking Kickstarter to help us with our finishing "kick". I would not describe us as "foodies" but we know what we like. Strong bold flavors seem to satisfy us every time. With that in mind, we headed into the test lab, AKA home kitchen, to create our flavors and twists on savory sandwiches. After many many months of refinement, and many many pounds gained, we perfected our style, are confident in our flavors, and created a delicious menu of fusion sandwiches. We will be offering our sandwiches not only from our truck but we will also be catering and doing events and parties. After we tweaked our menu and concept, we needed a name.
"Organized Chaos" is defined by the Cambridge dictionary as: a situation in which there seems to be a lot of confusion and no organization, which makes you surprised that the results are so damn good. (I added the Damn, sorry Cambridge dictionary). Upon reading that definition it was decided. How could we not use Organized Chaos as our name? We both immediately felt that it defined us, our food, and our concept perfectly. Now the hard part. Finding and buying our truck.
We found and purchased our little 7200 lb, 10 foot tall, bundle of joy in Wichita, Kansas. After an unexpected layover in Emporia to replace the starter, we got her home.
She is fully equipped with all commercial appliances, water tanks, and has even been licensed by the Kansas Dept of Agriculture. We are so proud. Currently she is getting a professional make over from Fleet Painting in Olathe, Kansas. Now lets get back to that menu.
We will be serving up delicious fusion sandwiches like :
Bahn Mi: A Vietnamese pork meatball sandwich topped with pickled veggies, a siracha aioli, and fresh cilantro.
Tequila Chicken: Tequila marinated chicken breast topped with a jalepeno slaw, cheese, avocado, and a chipotle aioli. (This is our appetizer version).
Shrimp Po Boy: Let me just show a picture
These are just a few of the sandwiches. We also have:
> Steak and Cheese with arugala and herb cream cheese
> Thai Chicken flatbread with a peanut sauce
> Pork Carnitas flatbread with chipotle crema
And if you ask nice enough, Marissa is always interested in trying new sandwich recipes. We take requests and your request could end up as a new item on the menu.
Now that you have seen a small sample of what we can do let me tell you what we are hoping to achieve through Kickstarter. We are looking to secure donations for all the last minute costs that have popped up like:
> Marketing expenses including graphics for the truck, business cards.
> Software to be able to co-ordinate the truck receipts with business accounts.
> Last minute supplies such as bins, napkin dispensers, plates etc. etc.
> Initial food cost and operating expenses for our first month.
We feel as if we are very close to reaching our dream and we hope that by sharing are vision and plan with you guys, you might help us overcome the remaining obstacles we have in our way.
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
We are well aware of the risks and challenges operating a food truck will bring. Unexpected bad weather, rising food costs, gaining a following that is willing to "find" you when they are craving a sandwich among others. We have put together a business plan that starts us off slowly by catering business lunches and doing smaller events and parties. As we establish a good solid foundation we will expand to the much larger festivals, events and parties. Marissa will continue working full time at Waddell and Reed while I grow our customer base during the week by catering and doing lunch events with local businesses. We will tag team the evening and weekend events together and we understand that slow and steady is our formula to success.
