  • Funding Usage

    The primary allocation of these funds will be directed towards the acquisition of automated machinery designed for food production with minimal human intervention. The strategic objective behind this investment is to optimize operational efficiency and reduce long-term labor costs associated with our mobile food service business.

  • Business Plan

    Our strategic vision for business expansion over the next five years involves venturing into larger-scale events and festivals, such as the Orlando EDC, which attracts up to 10,000 attendees. To accommodate these larger events, we anticipate an increase in demand necessitating the recruitment of additional labor for both sales and food preparation roles. Furthermore, we aspire to enhance our production capabilities by securing a dedicated space for our commissary kitchen. This facility will enable us to scale our food production without time constraints, contributing to the sustained growth and success of our mobile food service business. Investing in our enterprise presents a compelling opportunity for several reasons. Firstly, the post-pandemic surge in events and festivals has created a substantial demand for food caterers to participate, establishing a fertile market for our services. Recognizing the pivotal role vendors play in the success of events, our business contributes to the growth and continuation of local cultures through active participation in these events. What sets us apart is our distinctive food offerings, specializing in Sushi and Pan-Asian cuisine, which are rare finds at typical events. The unique nature of our offerings consistently generates excitement among attendees, contributing to a strong market presence. Furthermore, our business exhibits competitive edges, notably in our lower cost of food trailer compared to current market offerings. This advantage positions us favorably for large events, allowing us to operate at a more cost-effective scale. These distinctive elements collectively underscore our business's great potential, making an investment in our enterprise an opportunity for investors to realize profits sooner.

  • Self Identified Competition

    1. Large Caterer 2. Local Restaurant Our enterprise stands out from competitors in several key aspects. Firstly, our mobile food service possesses the unique ability to travel and cater to various events at different locations, a flexibility that local restaurants cannot replicate. This adaptability allows us to tap into diverse markets and reach audiences that traditional establishments might find challenging. One of our primary differentiators is the rarity of our food offerings at events. The culinary path we've chosen, specializing in Sushi and Pan-Asian cuisine, is not commonly found among typical event caterers. This exclusivity generates excitement among customers who encounter our offerings, as the novelty of sushi in such settings is a distinctive feature. Additionally, our business differentiates itself by manufacturing and importing our food trailer at a significantly lower cost compared to prevailing market rates. This cost efficiency enables us to participate in multiple events simultaneously, contributing to increased work opportunities for individuals interested in the food business. The combination of these factors positions us uniquely in the market, establishing a competitive advantage that sets us apart from direct competitors.
