Book early and often!
Hello, friends and fans! Waffleman is beginning to roar back as the pandemic begins to wane! Many of you who know me well know that it was a tough slog at times. A BIG thank you goes to both the Lincoln and Nebraska community for rallying their support…not just around me, but around ALL small and community-based businesses.
As many of you may have heard, I basically went “dark” for just about 5 months this winter as the DHM’s limited group gatherings to 50 people or less. Since holding a Waffleman fundraiser requires a 200 person minimum. that meant that fundraisers completely went away from November 2020 to March 2021. (Thank you to Aurora and Wahoo Bishop Neumann which were my first two fundraisers of the year that brought me back from the brink!) As it turns out, our new food trailer which was originally intended to be just an “extra” source of bookings and income suddenly became my ONLY source of bookings and income!
That being said, I’m happy to say that bookings are returning stronger than ever now that I have multiple avenues to serve my customers (fundraisers, food trailer, Waffleman Express for small parties)! Toward that end, I would like to highly recommend that if you would like for me to serve your business, private event, neighborhood, wedding, graduation party or other event that you book me as early as you can! I am SO fortunate that demand is becoming high enough that I tend to book out about 2 1/2 months in advance at this point. So August is nearly full, September is starting to fill, so most of my open slots don’t begin until October 2021 at this point.
I am so grateful and fortunate that so many of you have come out to support us both at fundraisers and at our food trailer. Stay tuned to my social media and my website for upcoming NEW menu items that will be offered at the food trailer very soon!
