Our mission is to serve high-quality, county-fair style gluten free foods that are hand made with locally sourced ingredients safely. We work hard to maintain a great work environment for our staff and support their goals. The majority of staff are female in a traditionally male industry. We buy all our produce from local vendors in Philadelphia, and use sustainable paper goods when able. Fox & Son is both a woman owned and AAPI owned business.
We are seeking funding to launch our new gluten free baking mix line for allergy-driven customers. The funding will go to paying our staff a fair wage, current expansion project completion, sourcing ingredients, and funding the co-packer and design elements for our product launch. We are also trying to fulfill our dream of having a food truck or partnering with someone to run a food truck for us. We started building our truck in 2019 but the project fell apart and we lost the investment we made of over $50,000 USD.
We are doing everything possible to keep our restaurant afloat through the crises of the Covid-19 pandemic and help fund our entrance into the grocery space with our gluten free product launch. By having our products mass produced, our goods can be easily accessible to anyone. By having a food truck, we can cater the special events of our gluten free customers and better market our restaurant and business. Based on our research, the market size and opportunity for Fox & Son mixes is substantial as they fill soy-free, gluten-free space. There is currently no competitors specifically for making gluten free carnival favorites like corn dogs and funnel cakes.
Thank you so much for your attention. Any help at all is appreciated!
