Essentially we’re shooting for a food truck that will allow us to transfer the materials, the appliances, and the workforce needed to bring our delicious drinks and sandwiches to all sorts of anime, comic book, video game and other kinds of conventions all over Florida. We have to start in our home-state for now, but we hope that one day we can travel further and further with our business until eventually you see Boba trucks hitting up the flashy scenes of Comicon, Dragoncon, and all the other big name places.
Where the money is going into.
It’s going take a lot more than just the food truck to keep the Boba fans happy, so here’s a basic breakdown of where it’s all going to:
Fundraiser Funds ::
Food truck - 23k
Paint job - 5k
Trailer - 5k
Freezer - 300
2 Blenders - 2k
6 jugs - 480
2 Sealers - 1k
Generator - 2k
Boba Burner - 400
Water tanks - 820
40k might seem like a lot, but these are just the bare necessities in order to get the business running. It'd be nice to straight up buy a truck without worrying about payments, so we're cutting straight into it. Blenders such as those from Blendtec are not cheap, but they're the best of the best and we strive to deliver both quality and quantity. Everything listed is much needed, and much appreciated. If you happen to have more in-depth question about appliances we'll be buying, feel free to ask!
Things that we'll be selling
DRINKS :: As for what we will be selling, that's an easier question to answer. As of now we have over 20 flavor selections in house. What we'll be bringing out into the field will always be changing depending on popular demand. With luck, we'll be able to pack all of flavors into the truck, especially popular favorites such as Taro, Strawberry, Thai Tea, Honeydew, Coconut, Milk Tea, etc.You can also mix any two flavors listed on our current menu for no additional cost! The boba itself is complimentary, so we won't be charging unless you're feeling like having a little extra.
FOOD :: It's no fun drinking boba alone, so we're going to be aiming to bring some munchies as well. In the truck we'll be able to offer hot paninis right off the press! Our current sandwich selection includes the all time favorite Island Chicken Curry, a Cuban, Tomato Mozzarella, Ham and Swiss, and a Grilled Cheese. Our meats and cheese are made with the finest ingredients from Boars Head, and are complimented with house-made sauces.
DESSERTS :: While we offer desserts (froyo, muffins, cakes, pies, ect) in house, it's still in the air whether or not we'll be bringing pies and cakes onto the truck. This depends wholly on how much we make. If we happen to make over our initial goal, we might be able to bring our froyo machines on the road.
How we'll sell
We've been to a few conventions already in Florida to sell our product, and we already know it's a hit and it sells. Transporting materials without a trailer or a truck, though, is a big, heavy pain. Not to mention not all convention centers allow food that isn't theirs on the grounds. This is where the truck comes in. We carry all our goods in one big truck, we don't have to run back and forth between the store and the con because we managed to have space for extra materials, and we can sell our drinks on the street side close to the con where we're allowed.
If you follow us at Chibi's Boba on facebook, we'll always post what cons we'll be hitting up, so you can find out where to find the big orange truck at a con near you! We'll also be posting updates weekly as the fundraiser moves along. Thanks again for your help everyone, this means so much for us!
