My wood fired mobile business.
« on: June 28, 2022, 10:41:09 PM »
It's  called the portable pizza palace. Been at it for over 10 years now. The events are becoming too big so I had to expand my capacity and have the ability to make dough at events further down the road.
In the tow vehicle are refrigerators for 540 dough balls, a mixer,  3 hole sink, hand wash sink and an on demand water heater. Essentially what is needed to keep things rolling without having to shuttle product.
In the Palace is the oven and more refrigeration.  We can now start off with 870 doughs. Now we can leave on any up to 3 day event and hopefully not run out and not shuttle or have to make dough. Just the two of us will put out 250 to 300 plus on a regular day at a local brewfest or town picnic.

The inside before cleaning,  the ensemble,  and pizza.

That's awesome! How often do you open shop? Every weekend? How far do you travel? Price point of your pie?

Our schedule is insane. I managed to semi train a person for pow wow, and the fairs. Our cheese is $11, Marg. $12, pep $13. That's all we do at major events to move the line along.  At smaller events we add veggies, and other toppings and bases.

This post is actually a help wanted post. Anybody want to escape the Southern heat, it actually snowed here 3 weeks ago.  We have warm days but not like the South.. We have done the serving just the two of us, but am anxious to see what it is like to actually walk to the bathroom. No employee base here, never has been.  ;D

Ive seen these converted fire trucks into food trucks seem to be popular lately. Bread Stone Ovens did this one.
