Difficulties and new ideas

I'm having a hard time finding a kitchen to rent.  Between places that have been closed for 2 years and people not returning my phone calls, I'm coming up empty handed.  I have discovered that if we lived in Dallas/Ft Worth, Austin or Houston I would not only be able to find a kitchen, I would have options!!!  Alas, we're here in San Antonio and have to come up with something else.  I'm really not ready to jump into a full retail, store front right now.  It's expensive (VERY expensive) and requires a pretty big commitment as far as a building lease.  So, we're looking into a fully mobile kitchen.  A concession/vending trailer fully outfitted with a kitchen that can go where the people are!  I'm excited and terrified at the same time.  Excited because I'm pretty sure there's only one other mobile cupcake bakery in San Antonio, so there's not a ton of competition!  Terrified because a fully mobile kitchen means that I have to drive a big honkin truck and trailer around and be able to get the trailer on and off the truck... Ummmm... YIKES!  This is looking like it's going to be the most cost effective way to go, so I better brush up on my big honkin truck driving!  We're still doing our homework and I'm still trying to find a kitchen, but we're headed in the right direction!


  1. That sounds like a really cool idea!! I love the food truck line of thought. It enables you to do so many more things than a store front would. You could offer delivery service, you could show up at ball games and parks, you could DO birthdays!! The opportunities are endless! You go girl!

  2. That is definitely a start. You can make money by doing that to then open a retail store!

  3. Wow! How exciting! Think of the positive, not only will you be living your dream, but think of the muscles you'll build up putting that trailer on and taking it off of the truck!

    Everyone loves a buff cupcake baker! hehe :)
