Was passiert mit dem Geld bei erfolgreicher Finanzierung?
The first purchase is the truck itself, of which there are a few options to consider depending on the amount raised.
The basic no thrills option is to purchase a cheap old school Mercedes truck, make it roadworthy and build the kitchen into the back, and obviously to paint the exterior to make it look like a Happy Rhino!
The advanced option is to spend more money on the truck, and
less time and money trying to fix an old one!
Then of course there's all the boring stuff like road tax, insurance, license, preparation kitchen hire, storage hire, generator and kitchen equipment to pay for.
This is an approximate cost breakdown
Decent truck – 15,000
Food selling hatch & installation - 3,000
Insurance per year – approx 1,000
Transient Merchant License– 129,00
TÜV – depends on condition of truck but for the basic registration 68-93
Kitchen and storage hire per month – 500
Truck paint job 600
Kitchen equipment 2,500
Kitchen equipment installation 500
Road tax 500
Electricity generator 300
Biodegradable packaging 80
Cleaning supplies 50
Kitchen utensils 350
Solar panels – 400
The remaining 5,000 would go to delivering rewards and paying platform fee
Threshold - 10,000 euro
This will be enough to buy a cheap truck and get the project moving. I will continue to work full time and fix the truck and buy the kitchen equipment as I go.
Funding goal - 30,000 euro
This will enable me to buy everything and begin building the truck kitchen straight away! Woohoo!
Wer steht hinter dem Projekt?
Well, that'd be me.
And you guys of course, cause this ain't going nowhere without your support!
My name is Demian, I am mostly Australian and I live here in Berlin.
I have worked my way up the ranks of kitchens and am ready to go solo!
I have also been putting on DIY non-for-profit punk gigs on for just under 10 years, so this project aims to bring awesome vegan cookery together with the ethics of punk rock!
