About this project
Bacon Bacon is a food truck that began in July of 2011. The goal for this Kickstarter campaign is to raise enough money to get another truck.
Why participate? Besides the “rewards” on the right, be a part of something from the ground up. Bacon Bacon is going to be big, and you get to be a part of watching it grow and can say – “I helped take Bacon Bacon to the next level.” It doesn’t matter if it’s $10 or $2500, you helped.
The concept has been successful, but for now we've been extremely limited on where we can travel. The new or newer truck will allow us to serve more people, in more areas, outside of San Francisco.
Everyday I'm amazed by the response we get. Whether it's in person, via social media, the press or a foodie blog. I know we are putting out a great product and I want to share what we are offering with more of you. I want to be able to cater more parties, expand service hours, and do more large events outside San Francisco.
When driving the truck around town, a phenomenon happens. People yell “Bacon Bacon” at the truck, honk their horns, and pump their fists in approval. It's hilarious but also gives me the confidence knowing we are on to something big here. I have had inquiries about franchising, maybe in time, but we aren't ready for that yet. We are going to grow this business by taking small, well thought out steps. I'm not in it for 2012 - I'm here to stay. Join us.
We have had a great first 10 months. Here’s a link and a video to share with you:
We have been featured on the youtube show Epic Meal Time, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DdIT9A8g1v8 and we are getting ready to be featured on two new shows this summer, one on the Discovery Network, the other on the Food Channel.
We have received a number of accolades both locally and nationally: 4 stars on yelp, http://www.yelp.com/biz/bacon-bacon-san-francisco,
