Last Friday I ventured into the world of Pop-Up catering. A local boxing event required food vendors and I thought this would be an opportunity for me to test out an idea for a product I wished to launch in 2016. Going in with Bajan pulled pork or barbecued chicken, both served with rice and peas, bread and salad. I had every confidence in my food. The unfortunate part came with the overall ticket sales to the event. initially, I was expecting 600 but it was closer to 350/400 on the day. Of which we served a percentage of. Knife of Brian was the only food vendor there on that evening. My brother and my son were both helping me out. The banter was good and the steady stream of customers kept us busy all night.
Overall, I really enjoyed the event and have learned a lot. I have ideas to take with me through to the next similar event. But I won't rush into anything.
