BBQ Business

I would not risk everything for any business. If you don't have the 25,000.00 to lose, might not be a good deal. That would be like borrowing 25,000.00 to go to a casino and gamble.
Like to BBQ? Wanna make money and have fun and NOT gamble.
If you can market a business there, you can do this.
Advertise and do Private Parties. Buy your smoker, smoke on site, do JUST meat, smoke it and get out.
No licenses required (get some insurance).
I charge 60.00 per hour, 6 hour minimum, provide only the smoker, wood and charcoal. They buy the meat and EVERYTHING else.
I make good money, only do it when I want and still have fun.
Ain't got no risk at all!!!!!!!!!!!!
On the other hand. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.
If you are a gambling man, borrow your life away and JUMP IN!!!!!!!!!Good luck to you and I wish you the best.
Smoke On!!!!!!

With great regret I announce that I am probably going to lose the joint this morning. The owners have held off another party because they
preferred me, but they are meeting today. I understand. I can't really explain what happened to my partner, but lets just say this one is going to slip away from me. It really sucks. I know we've all dreamed of this, but I was close this time.

It is better to not be able to explain your partners actions NOW than LATER

Yea it sucks BIG time but ya could still do catering , there is some bucks there and you do have that trailer pit , which is nice. Maybe this just wasnt ment to be at this time. Be glad you found out now rather than later after you had committed the money. And there is always competing ???

Aww Cappy, sorry to hear that. As was stated already, better to have troubles now than later when you're in too deep. Who knows maybe a better opportunity is waiting for you!

Well cappy sorry to hear that it fell thru. But now you can look into starting a catering bus and then building up from that.

Man, I'm sorry to hear that too! It sounded like this was really going to materialize. But, like others have said, better for something like this to happen now. Good luck down the road.

Partners, we don't need no stinkin' partners. Tough luck buddy, keep your chin up and your eyes open, you'll get there.

Sorry to hear it buddy. It is better for it to happen now rather than later though.
I told you the story of my brother and the chicken joint. His partner re-lapsed (alcoholic) and they lost the business. Luckily, the partner was the larger percentage investor.

I'm sorry to hear about this. I guess all you can do is try to keep your irons in the fire(I figured I'd add another cliche) Keep smilling dude.

Good Q!
