My friend and I have recently been getting serious about starting a business that would actually deal with the selling of the food itself — good vegan stuff, of course! — versus, for example, a cookbook (which doesn’t mean I don’t have another in me).
That’s all I’ll say about it for now as we investigate the logistics. However, I can say we’ve tossed around everything from packaged foods, to catering, to food carts, to opening a restaurant or even a pub. Interestingly enough, going the franchise route didn’t even cross our minds. Too expensive and too many rules to really make it your own, I guess.
So anyway, in our never-ending quest for knowledge on the subject of food entrepreneurship, I’m curious whether any of my readers and/or their friends and family have stories to share? I hope so! Please, leave it in the comments or encourage someone you know to do so. If you’ve got a tale to tell, good or bad, lessons, advice, whatever, again, we want to hear it and I’m sure others will find them interesting too. Thanks.
