Small Food Business Is Headed To ROAM Mobile Food Conference

ROAM mobile foodFollowing up on yesterday’s post about food trucks and mobile food businesses, I thought I’d mention that I’ve been invited to speak at the ROAM Conference this year.  ROAM is the premier industry conference for those who own and operate mobile food businesses and those who are hoping to get their own business rolling. 

The conference actually has two tracts of workshops and seminars geared towards those who already have a business and those who haven’t yet started so that you can be sure to find sessions that meet your needs for where you are today.  There are a number of speakers on every topic from legal to marketing and I’ll be speaking about the variety of funding options available to mobile food entrepreneurs who are looking for capital.  Click here to view the full schedule.

I’m really excited and honored to have been invited to speak and am looking forward to spending a few days immersed in all things mobile food business.  And, to be totally truthful, the idea of spending a few days in San Antonio in early November seems like a really great way to spend a weekend too!

ROAM Conference is November 8 and 9th in the Embassy Suites Hotel on the historic riverfront.  If you’d like more information about the conference, click here.  And certainly let me know if you’re planning to be there as I’d love to be able to meet you and say hi in person.

If you’re interested in attending, you can save 5% on the registration fee by using the code roam5CP! (include the !).  The rate is currently $210 but it will go up to $240 after September 10th.  Click here to register and remember to use your code!

    This is exciting! I’m looking to start a food cart in Portland next year and recently purchased several of your books and and think I may just have to attend the bootcamp. One question/note…I’m looking to do a stationary cart (trailer), not really a mobile vehicle, will much of the bootcamp still apply? Perhaps I’l ask the organizers. 🙂
