Yea, I sold pulled pork sammies for 3 weeks and made a killing aroud $300.00 per wack. I even had the county heads wanting me to cater the big employees thingy. But my mind got to me and I dont want to break the laws. Because I would be standing for something that is bad in the "service" world. people call still wanting to place orders and they are shocked when I say "sorry cant do it"

I have found out one thing though people in california at least in this part are really starved for real BBQ.

But, Im taking a class on developing a small business plan and then a managment class in food service. But thanks for all the help to everyone who took their time to answer my e-mails and my calls for help.

this is just a work in progress my friends!!

I know it's a tough decision, but doing it legally is really the best way. I've seen a few caterers closed down by the health dept, because the competitors for the business turned them in for being a "mom-and-pop"

Sad but true.

So just take the lesson like you have, you've obviously found a market, now go and make it happen.

Best of luck.
