About

Pie- Megan bakes wonderful pie. She'll bake it daily.

Coffee- Dave roasts wonderful coffee. He'll roast it weekly.

Truck- A truck will take the coffee and pie to the city.

Restaurants fear food trucks because if the food is good, they create competition. Our food and coffee is amazing, so they should shake in their pants. Speaking of shake...Megan's shaker lemon pie is to die for.

We hope to inspire people with small budgets to think creatively and pursue their dreams in business. After much brainstorming, we stumbled on the idea of putting our dream into Chicago's newest exciting food trend- a truck.

A food truck requires a smaller budget than a cafe or restaurant which is perfect, because with our word of mouth fund raising we've already almost raised what we need. We spent the last few weeks acquiring the truck and learning what it takes to run a food truck properly. Now we're ready.

We'll spend the next couple weeks continuing to learn/train and outfitting the truck, while trying to raise money to offset final costs incurred immediately. These include paying our artist (making the truck look beautiful), paying city fees (mobile food establishment license, retail food license, parking permits, and sanitation licenses), and outfitting the truck with electricity and hot water.

Our hope is that Kickstarter will help us raise the funds, and that once we're up and running we can use our funds to do the same for others.
