About this project

The Bom Bus is a creative outlet that has been brewing over the past four years in Trevon's head.  In November of 2012, the bus was purchased and the dream began its' trasformation into a reality.  The completion of the bus is imminent and now we are asking for your backing to purchase a generator and paint the bus.  

Portuguese food draws from many regions of the world.  There are over a dozen countries from Africa and South America to Asia that still have Portuguese influences on their language and food.  We are focusing on the Portugal Portuguese cuisine and giving a nod to those other countries in the food that we offer.  Though most of the cuisine is carnivorously focused, we will also off vegetarian options of the same menu item.  The food truck scene in Asheville, NC is young and we are ready to bring Portugal to the streets for everyone to enjoy.  

With the funds that we raise with this kickstarter, we are purchasing a new generator for the instances that we may not be able to plug in.  We are also going to give the bus a face lift with a fresh paint job and our logo.  This is an opportunity for everyone to get involved and be a part of the food truck movement.  Let's bring Portuguese food to the street and give it the appreciation it rightfully deserves!

Risks and challenges

There are a limited number of permits to operate in the Central Business District (CBD) in Asheville, NC. Currently we are awaiting new legislation that would allow more permits to be had to operate in the city. Until then we have selected locations outside the CBD to setup.
