We plan to use conveyor ovens instead of decks, and with virtually no prep done at the satellite location. Just build & bake so I/we are can employ more entry level people.
Does anyone else currently do this? How’s it working for you with all the prep being performed at one location, and supplied to the other location for building/baking pizzas?
Our hours are projected to be open from 11:00 AM to 12 Midnight, every day but Tuesdays
Due to the uniqueness of the area, and it being considered “an Income Depressed, Rural Tribal township” ,
We also plan to offer a “take and bake” option so the local residents who are using government assistance can use their EBT cards for purchases.
Does anyone here honor EBT? Regardless of personal feelings, do you think I may be getting into a mess that I do not want to have by offering this? I feel there would be very much money left on the table, and losing out on potential customers if we didn’t have an EBT option.
Alright, now I need to get researching equipment costs
I knew I saw a list someplace in this forum with an “Opening checklist” Could someone please post a link to that for me?
Maybe Mr Mills can chime in with some refurb conveyor ovens and refrigeration ideas, costs, and lead times, maybe we’ll go with new…
The location is located in a “Business Incubator” strip mall set up by the local tribal government EDC, there was a restaurant in operation there for a few brief months several years back, so I believe an exhaust hood, mop sink, fire suppression system is already in place but it will need servicing to get it up to date.
I need to submit a “Best & Worst case funding scenario” by this weekend to get this rolling.
So my task is to submit a cost list from major appliance to smallwares, car toppers, delivery bags all the way down to initial inventory of disposable and paper goods. No mixer needed since we’ll be prepping everything at our main location.
I plan to use Point of Success at that location, with Central point remote tied into our main location.
Wish me luck in getting this done correctly, and thank you in advance for any insight that you may offer.
