We all have dreams. Some of our dreams began when we were young. We looked to the stars, or we looked to people who were inspirational, or we looked to our teachers and instructors.
Or maybe…just maybe… you looked at the plate in front of you and thought, “Yep. I wanna make that. But better.”
Whatever the inspiration was, it has led you to this spot. Right here. Right now. Reading this post and wondering if you have the passion – the fire within – to take your food to the masses.
The fact that you are here right now means you do.
There are many individualized reasons to get into the mobile wood-fired industry. Some just want to leave the rat-race behind and work for themselves. It’s satisfying knowing that you can set any schedule you want. No more being told where to be and when. The control is totally yours. Maybe your dream is to travel to all the music festivals in your area, hear some good bands and make some dough. Or maybe it’s to get intertwined with the nightlife of your downtown area on the weekends. You decide how much money you want to make and when. And you can also set the prices for your culinary delights, as well.
Maybe you have “put in your time” in the workforce and you just want to enjoy cooking for others (and earn a little scratch at the same time) from time to time. You would not be the first to take on the mantle of Executive Retired Chef. Working this way allows the chef to meet all sorts of people, making contacts and new friends all across the country, if they wish.
You might be in a position to help your community become more self-sufficient and provide meals to schools or other members of your community. Elementary school kids squeal in delight when they get to see the fire, smell the smoke, and get pizza into their hands in 90 seconds! Using a mobile wood-fired oven can not only take the burden off those who do not have consistent prepared meals, but can also provide a bit of fun and flare at the same time.
