Welcome to the "Funding" section of our web site. On August 20th 2018 we decided to finally make a long standing dream come true. So right now we are in the funding stages of our business plan. We are using our website as a "Crowd Funding" site. You may also know this process as a "kick-Starter". As time goes on we will add to the site.
It is our mission to create a business with the following goals:
1) To offer food allergy friendly foods and Services to our customers.
2) To raise funds to launch a food truck/catering business in the central Texas area.
3) To Initially launch in Catering and Food Truck services Austin, TX. and eventually add service to: Houston, TX, San Antonio, TX,Washington DC and Baltimore, MD.
4) To give back to the communities in which we serve and operate. This will be done in many ways but initially through services and charitable donations (please see the FAQ Page).
5) To have both a digital presence and a "Brick & Mortar " presence in the communities we serve.
6) To deploy innovative technologies to achieve all of the above, and have fun along the way.
We will initially start off with catering and food truck services. This will be provided to people at their place of business during breakfast and lunch meal times. The menu will include specialty beverages including: expresso, coffee, and other beverages. Healthy choices and international comfort food choices. "Imagine High quality, flavor rich food just outside your workplace." For those who already know what they want, imagine choosing and paying for your meal online so all you have to do is walk over? Using the best technology available in: food preparation, delivery, and CRM (Customer Relationship Management). we will be able to provide a high quality food experience to a wider range of patrons and businesses than what is currently done.
To Achieve our goals we need to raise $160,000.00 through "Crowd Funding".
We know to some this may seem like a lot however this is one of the reasons we chose crowd funding. Food trucks, licences and equipment are
expensive and the profit margins on food related services is not huge, even when everything is open and running.
If everyone gives what is comfortable for them, then as a whole great things can be accomplished! We will update this website on a regular basis, If you have any questions please read our FAQ section or use the "Contact BaerGrillz With questions and/or requests" form to the right. Also please enjoy the articles and pictures of "Whats cooking in our kitchens". All pictures of food on this site are actual photographs of meals I have prepared unless otherwise stated directly in the description.

Food Truck Economics"
The food truck market may be easier to break into than the restaurant business, but it is still a major endeavor. The cost of starting a high quality food truck ranges from approximately $50,000 to $150,000 or more, and the process takes several months.
The biggest cost is the truck itself. Bobby’s family bought their truck used for $37,000. Pelle, the caterer who sells Nordic dishes like meatballs, mashed potatoes, and lingonberries, paid $20,000 for his used truck and another $27,000 to outfit it. But trucks looking to tap into the foodie scenes of LA, New York, and San Francisco may need to make a big investment in a custom truck. To meet the challenge of cooking quality sushi, Thomas of We Sushi spent over $100,000 on a custom truck. But so did Me So Hungry, a truck that dishes out creative sliders.
Trucks can be rented to reduce capital costs, but Bobby dismissed the possibility as the rates are almost as high as buying a used truck. Given the healthy market for used trucks, buying one is less of a risk.
The other major start up expense is licensing and permits. Josh of StrEAT Food Park estimates the total cost at up to $10,000, a figure confirmed by several trucks. The various required licenses include a business license, food handler certification, health certification, and fire certification.
Many licenses are administered by the county or city, so a truck that wants to freely roam from the South Bay, north up to San Francisco, and east across the bridge to Oakland and Berkeley would need to clear the permitting and license requirements of at least 4 counties - an expense some but not all trucks undertake.
Today, food truck owners benefit from infrastructure that makes it easier and cheaper to get started and find customers.
Food truck owners cannot run the business out of their house. They are legally obligated to prep food in a certified kitchen and dump used “gray” water in a certified space. Commissaries, kitchens that rent out space to food entrepreneurs, have begun catering to food trucks, offering places to park and re-charge the trucks in addition to cooking facilities.
Organizations like Off The Grid and SOMA StrEAT Food Park offer trucks easy access to customers. Since the reputation and stability of the organizers draws a crowd, trucks can sell to many customers from day one. The pioneers of the food truck world, who established the norm of following trucks on Twitter and searching out their social media presence, also makes it easier for trucks to market themselves.
