Linda's Luncheonette is comfort food made mobile. It's nostalgia on a plate that warms your soul with each bite!

Thank you for visiting Linda's Luncheonette on Kickstarter! Check us out on Twitter @LLuncheonette and Facebook at Linda's Luncheonette Fan Page.

What is Linda's Luncheonette?

Linda's Luncheonette is gourmet comfort food made mobile.  It's nostalgia on a plate that warms the soul with each bite - not to mention brings a HUGE smile to your face!  We use only the freshest and finest ingredients because we believe that even when you have to grab a meal on the go, you should never have to sacrifice quality or flavor!

Why a food truck?

We want to create a traveling diner where you can enjoy your favorite comfort foods - the foods that make you feel oh-so-good inside.  I want to share my passion for cooking yummy foods with the Montgomery County, MD area - and eventually the entire DC metropolitan area.  The truck will be used not only for daily lunch food service, but we have big plans for catering all your important events - from work parties and office meetings to weddings, graduations, pool parties, showers, neighborhood gatherings and any other event you can think of!  We will bring the truck to you will add a whole new level of fun and excitement to your next special occasion!

Once we have opened, we will faithfully Tweet (@LLuncheonette) and Facebook (www.facebook.com/lindasluncheonette) our daily location.  We will also be visible on www.foodtruckfiesta.com so you never miss your comfort food fix!

Each day you locate the truck you will be able to count on finding our delicious five-cheese mac and cheese, turkey meatloaf and mashed potatoes, soup of the day, and the house chopped salad. Don't forget the double wide crispy treats and chocolate chunk brownies, just the way you love them!  Additionally, we will feature seasonal blue plate specials, so there will always be a little something special we whipped up just for you!

What is Kickstarter and how does it work?

Kickstarter is this amazing platform that allows people like me to fund exciting and creative projects.  To make this dream a reality, I will be investing approximately $40,000.  I need to raise at least $20,000 to get this project on the road.

Kickstarter will not charge your credit cards until after we've reached - and hopefully surpassed! - the $20,000 goal.  If we do not raise $20,000, Kickstarter will not give any of the money to Linda's Luncheonette.

Inspiring Incentive!

Continual Community Presence

Our commitment to the community does not end once the Kickstarter program is over in fact, that's when it begins.  We plan to offer fundraising opportunities to the area's non-profit organizations and charitable foundations.  It's important to us to give back to the community that we love so much.

We really appreciate your support in making this dream a yummy rolling reality!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

As with any dream-chasing adventure (a.k.a. new business), there is potential for unforeseen obstacles. If on the off chance any of these should arise, I plan to continue handling the forward progress of this project methodically and skillfully - always seeking out answers from professionals and reaching out to fellow business people for what ever guidance I may need. This project has been well thought out and already looked over by many respected industry people so I go into this with the utmost of confidence - and the least amount of risk.
