Over the past few months I have been researching, developing business plans and figuring out how to bring my vision/dream to a reality. When I was 14 I started my first job at a pizzeria as a bus boy, I spent 6 years learning everything in that place and how to master all of it. I went to culinary school followed by hospitality management school and cooked in a few restaurants then decided to go where the money was, restaurant management. I currently manage a 3 million dollar a year restaurant and miss cooking every single day.
This brings me to where I am today. I want to open a restaurant but don't have the financial resources or the ability to quit my job and take that plunge. So I thought after reading countless hours of information from this site and others about the mobile business which is a much cheaper start up be it a difficult one that I could start to follow that dream by opening a mobile pizzeria.
I'll use this thread to document my journey. I currently live in a part of New York State that in my opinion needs a product like this. I lived in Connecticut my whole life and was use to great pizza like Pepes and other local gems. I want to bring something I'm proud of to the masses.
I present Toss 'n' Fire, a mobile wood fire pizzeria. I have confirmed some spots in some busy local farmers markets and I've been talking to as many people as I can. My area is very new to the food truck/trailer scene only having maybe a total of 8-10 in operation. I've got my name on lists for some festivals and other happenings. I'm beyond excited to dive into this and make my dream a reality.
Posting some pictures of pizzas, the oven/unit we picked out and a logo I put together. I would really appreciate any likes on our Facebook page too www.facebook.com/tossnfirepizza
Planning to launch around middle to end of April. It will be part time for me as I'll be working my job to support my family and baby on the way but I'm bringing a good friend on board to help with day to day and hiring some local guys I met to do some part time work when we get to that point.
