Help / Advise on starting a creperie??

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hello out there!

I wan to start a small crepe business. I don't want a sit down type place. I would like to cater to walking traffic.

I have owned and operated an ice cream cafe so I know hard work.

Would love suggestions as to equipment, recipe. etc...

Thanks,

Paula L.

Hi, and welcome!

 

How about a food cart? Here are links for two that sell crepes in Portland, Or, where food carts are all the rage:

Hope these will give you some ideas.

Hey GM,

Thanks so much!

My city- Benicia, CA will not allow food trucks or carts...only at produce market.

That's too bad about the food cart/truck policy there. Could you skirt the issue by having a cart in a nearby town, one that allows them?

I'm going to a planning board meeting in my little town of Benicia ( 28,000 population) raise this issue about food trucks. There is a Taco truck in town and it has been here for years? I got a little fight in me so we will see what happens. 

What is very important here is I need to earn income!  I won't make if I have to pay $3K / month for a stationary building.

Stay tuned!

Paula

Interesting--I checked out that taco truck on Google and its mere existence does seem to contradict the policy you cite. Maybe there's a grandfather clause?

God luck at the meeting. I will definitely stay tuned!
