About this project
A semi-long time ago, in a kitchen far, far, away.
A grilled cheese master was born and forever changed the course of history for the Grilled Cheese Sandwich and America. After mastering the arts and going on to win 7 national trophies at the Grilled Cheese Invitational, he borught his talents to the streets of Oakland to share with the masses. 2 years later we are now serving people all over the bay area and have not slowed down. The only problem is that I truly can't keep up with the business without some help from the very America that made me who I am today. If we are successful with this project, then we know that you believe in us just as much as we believe in ourselves and we can finally go out and get a truck and be who we were destined to be. Your GrilledCheezGuy's forever!
33K is a very big goal but don't stop there my fans! If we reach higher numbers I will not only crap my pants in shock and excitement, I will also promise we meet certain promises to you all. At 40K we will install a Price is Right style putt putt course where I will come out and Bob Barker style give away food/prizes to random fans. At 50K we promise to get a pinball machine installed into the truck. At 100K we promise to take our new truck on the road and visit as many major cities as we have so that everyone in America has a chance to try our sandwich.
The timing for this project could not be more key. Right now as I speak there is another....grilled cheeser...that is trying to melt the minds of the bay area grilled cheese fans and one day soon you! Help us to get ourselves off the ground so that we can be your winning alternative on the streets!
It has been a long and crazy road from my little side business to hopefully becoming my full time biz that I can grow and also help give back to our community with. As a man who cares about volunteering and giving back, we want to give 1% of all food sales to the Alameda County Food Bank b/c that is the county where we started and they are the people that are making a difference there. So if you have ever had us, please consider donating to us and giving up one actual meal with us so that you can ensure we are a permanent establishment for you in the future. If you have not had us, please donate to our Kickstater in hopes that you might come visit the bay area and try America's best grilled cheese, or one day we might visit you.
I can not thank you enough for sharing, liking, donating, and supporting us in everyway you have and I hope that when these 60 days are over, you have made my cheesy dream come true and I can become your darling GrilledCheezGuy Truck and serve you happiness everyday!
With all my cheesy heart,
HELP KICKSTART US TODAY! STARTS SEPT 21st and ends NOV 21st!
PS - Why 33K? Well I was going to do 30 because it is my current age and this is the life changing moment at a very big year. But then I realized that I play 33 in roulette every time so I felt this too was a gamble and hoped my lucky number would come through! (It also technically covers the extra fees they take from 30K......get it?)
Risks and challenges
The risks and challenges are great and, if not, the greatest they have ever been for me as GrilledCheezGuy. The grilled cheese trend has been on a rise and a certain "Melt"y sandwich has started to go from a chain to food truck right on the very day I got my kickstarter project approved. And in the same town! The challenge will be to make sure I can uphold my niche and clientele and continue to expand my business as GrilledCheezGuy but always strive to be novel and different from the status quo from whatever field we are in. We will be able to do this with our recipes in the food truck and concepts like Behind the Cart and would the food truck brings for us. Legislation and the process of getting a truck will also be somewhat challenging but I also have many good friends in the business that have always offered help and support when the time came. I promise to overcome all things and share my struggle so others can learn at the same time since my backers helped me get there and might be curious!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
