About this project
At Doobie’s DogHouse, it’s about more than just Hot Dogs- Our stand was built on a love for food, a desire to foster a community, and a passion for providing Reform,Al. with high quality, highly delicious, fresh Hot Dogs and Sandwiches. All of our Dogs are made fresh and to order, and I use only local ingredients, when possible. We make it our priority to recycle our drink cans and, our serving trays and to-go boxes are made from recycled materials. Did we mention that our hotdog wieners are also 100% Alabama and completely delicious?
The connection between food, our health, and the world around us is undeniable- but at Doobie’s Dog House we feel, that as Americans, we still should have a choice of the food we consume. Everything in moderation is the key…Even our health aware 1st Lady was seen eating at the world famous Pink’s Hot Dogs in Hollywood, California. So it’s also undeniable to say, that Hotdogs are everybody’s favorite food. Cleanliness is of the most importance. it's one of my biggest pet peevs.and everyone at some point has experienced it. I believe in maintaining a very clean establishment. If its not clean, customers won't come back...I believe customer service is of importance also...a kind friendly smile can go a long way in the food business... as owner of Doobie's Dog House I assure my supporters and my customers that I will never loose fact of that...

Even though I’m not officially open, we have already outgrown our trailer operation(based on customers asking about it, facebook support, and projected business due to very high traffic area, and I also sustained unrepairable damage to the roof of the trailor ) and need to expand into our own kitchen to meet the demand! We have secured a location on Hy 82 East , in Reform, Al. on the same property as the Mud Hole, a very poplar and very busy antiques and variety store..our thoughts was his business will bring me business and mine vice versa.. We have the space,the building, and the passion, now we need your help to equip it!
With the funds that you so graciously provide I will be using it for the following:
Finishing the interior: wall board..stainless steel walls in the cooking area, lights, vent hood with grease trap filters(so i can start serving fry's and corn dogs with a deep fryer)
A deck with tables and umbrella’s on front of the building for dining (approx. 20' x20' )
A larger cooling unit to keep large amounts of perishables cold
3- Stainless tables instead of wood built counter tops for steam table, prep, ect.
A larger serving window replacing the window that came with the building
Adding a restroom for staff use only…required by health inspector
A set of steam pans
Electrical breaker box
Food handling permit
3 bay sink for dishes and a single sink for hand washing….required by health inspector
any pledges over the100% mark will be greatly appreciated ... $6000 is the least amount i need to get this project finished, but at the same time any amount over will be spent on upgrades to the hotdog stand..extra tables and umbrella's, maybe can add a dishwasher in the future, ect...Remember this has to reach my goal of $6000 in 30 days or i get nothing... please share in my passion and give generously ....thank you so much...
Risks and challenges
To date, we have been faced with many risks and challenges. The largest risk has been our financial investment in this business. We have put a lot of our finances at risk to avoid taking on investors or bank loans. The least amount of overhead, the better it will be in times of slow business. As with any business there are good times and there are not so good times. We have strong confidence in ourselves and our products and know that, if we persevere, our Hot Dog Stand will thrive. 2nd. challenge being satisfying the health inspector... if he finds a problem I will correct it, but I really don't foresee a problem, because my county's inspector is working with me closely, to be sure I complete all of his requirements... he knows that i'm struggling and really wants me to succeed, I believe that truly ..the last challenge is wastewater hook up.. I have'nt found the existing sewer main on the property yet, but I know its there, and the City of Reform will hook up that service..Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
if i'm not funded then not one single person will have there credit cards charged by amazon..but lets not think that way,thats to scarey, so, say i do reach my goal. of $6000.. then the amount that you so graciously pledged will be deducted from the source you provided and i will then receive that amount...
i will send a survey out upon funding, and u will send it back.. i will then have the info I need to process the rewards... the reward combo's?, i supose i can do a punch card with your name on it and every time you come in to collect i can punch it
