Hey Mitch, quick question for ya. What kind of license is typically required from the health dept. for just a simple coffee stand at outdoor events. (not a full concession vehicle). Hope all's well...imagine you're pretty busy right about now!

Cead Mille Failte! A hundred thousand welcomes!
Come on down.
If coming down I-24 take the Manchester exit that says Tullahoma toward Jack Daniel's on 55.
The first signal light in Tullahoma is Anderson. Turn right we are on the right just past the next light (Lincoln Street) across from MAPCO gas station.
We are just before Piggies BBQ (look for the big pig).
I drive a Black Yukon.

Hi Mitch. Wanted to thank you for your comment and offer to help. Right now I'm thinking about a stationary cart in a hospital or office building. The mobile event cart sounds like fun, but I worry about things like not having enough gigs at the beginning and lots of product spoiling. How did you deal with that? Also, I imagine for a mobile cart you would have to have some kind of retrofitted van or something to transport it. Did you make or buy your cart? How do you deal with transporting it? I want to do this and get away from a desk job for good - I just have to overcome my indecision and also start believing that I can actually make it work. If you can recommend any resources on cart operations, it would help. I've looked but haven't run across any so far. Thanks again...really appreciate your insight :)

What a cool concept Mitch. From the pics it looks like you have both a trailer and a cart. I've been planning for an inline store, but with the current economy, I'm thinking it might be more practical to start with a cart or kiosk. I'm kind of curious what has been more profitable for you - the concession trailer or catering?

Hope you can stop by in Sept. I'd love to meet you and introduce you to my husband and the gang. We should be well on our way with the renovations by then. I'm working on the new layout now. I'm trying to remember all the traffic flow rules and do's and don'ts. We are going to put the sandwich prep bar and panini and soup just inside the back kitchen so we can keep those smells away from the coffee smells out front. I'm so excited to see the a real time goal.

Hey Mitch, we do 2 different markets, one is fairly small and based in a large apartment complex in San Francisco, the other is in downtown Burlingame. We get a lot of regular, loyal customers, and most people come prepared to buy, as they're getting their produce for the week etc. We tried doing an Art and Jazz festival this month and it was HORRIBLE! We do much MUCH better at the farmers' markets, but I still don't do it for the money ;)
