Wood Fired Pizza Food Truck
« on: July 29, 2014, 05:35:35 PM »
So I have had a very strong feeling about operating a wood fired pizza food truck for a long time.  I live in Kansas City, Missouri and the food truck industry is not very welcomed in our city (government wise), but we do have a few food trucks that do operate here.  I want to turn my passion into something I do for a living.  I am tired of working for someone else and long to be my own boss and have my own success/failures (hopefully and God willing more successes than failures).  I feel life passing me by and I want to enjoy what I do and not look back and regret not giving my all to do something I love.  I know some would say open a brick and mortar rather than a truck, but at this time I feel the truck calling and not the other.  Maybe by typing this I put things into motion rather than day dream...  Who knows what life will bring...  Just wanted to post my thoughts.  Thanks for looking at my post.

It's never too early to start communicating with the health dept to know what it is you'll need to do to be legal. It's free to inquire, so get as much information as you can on what hoops you'll need to jump through and who you need to talk to. The more you know, the easier it'll be. I talked with the health department for well over a year before getting licensed. Start now!

It just depends on how much of your happiness is tied to your wealth. Don't open a food truck to be wealthy. But if you know you would be happy every day getting up and going to sleep, then switch over. You can make enough to live, just not necessarily comfortably. I see no reason to make life choices that don't bring happiness, life is much too short.

This is something I heard on the foodtruckr podcast I believe, but because of the fact that your city falls in 2 states when getting your license you need to comply with the regulations of both states and pay twice for permits. I believe that is one of the main reasons the market there is under serviced. So if you are willing to jump through some e extra hoops it may be yours for the taking.
As a home brewer and a pizza maker I love fermentation.
