We are a food company specializing in chicken and waffles, while offering a menu filled with fresh, organic, made-to-order meals all for under $15. In addition to expanding the operations of our food truck, we are also looking to implement our Site Partnership Program, for which we would purchase another food truck that we could create a franchise and lease out to others so that they could get experience working with this kind of model. Given owner Aaron's nearly 10 years owning a business – along with his expertise as a certified CPA – those occupying the food truck would receive training on making their business successful.
We are raising $35,000, paid at a 6.50% interest rate, with a six month interest-only period and a 30 month fully amortizing period.
We are the only minority-owned business in the Detroit area to use all organic products!
Food truck $15,000
Supplement payroll $5000
Used roaster 1600XL pressure fryer $3500
Local marketing with radio station $2100
Wrap food truck $4500
Inventory for grand opening $3800
Grand Opening marketing 5000
In addition to the food truck we have already purchased for my business, we plan to obtain another food truck that would serve as a second branch of the business, but rented by another aspiring food trucker. This will serve as a model for a food-based company to learn the ins and outs of the industry, even with social distancing restrictions in place.
We will be purchasing a second truck so that other food-based companies can start their businesses and share their flavors!
About Heavenly Chicken & Waffles
Aaron Sanders originally operated his company at a permanent brick and mortal in Southfield Michigan, where he developed an affinity for chicken and waffles after his first trip to New York City, returning to Michigan thereafter to experiment with his own recipes. After earning the admiration of friends and family, he launched the Company in Detroit in 2006, later changing his stable east side location to his On The Spot Mobile Kitchen and Catering in Detroit.
We distinguish ourselves from all levels of competition by offering the very best in handmade fried chicken and waffles, and by being committed to offering all of its products and services in the friendliest and most professional manner.
We will build on our existing reputation as we look to start our expansion within the city of Detroit as well as across the state of Michigan. By touting our affordable and organic food, we will continue to identify our restaurant as a unique dining destination. To increase exposure, we will use a combination of advertising to develop rapport with new and existing customers. This will range from banner ads and social networking to print media and television and radio commercials. These efforts will help ensure breakfast lovers will see Heavenly Chicken & Waffles as the destination of choice for those seeking healthy, quality and affordability in an exciting new dining concept.
