FUNNEL CAKE VENDOR TRAINING CLASSES AVAILABLEVendor training is available covering mall and mobile locations.We offer in store training at our Gatlinburg, TN location only. The cost of the training is $500.00 which includes all materials used for the training session. You are welcome to bring one additional person with you. You are also invited to video or take pictures of anything that you feel will help you during the session. Normally it takes less than one day for folks to be comfortable that they have the knowledge they need from it. Frying funnel cakes isn't rocket science, that usually takes about 20 minutes to accomplish. The valuable part of the training session is the opportunity to have all your questions answered dealing with the entire scope of the business operations. As with any business, there are unique issues involved in operation of a funnel cake business at a fixed location such as a mall. The opportunity to learn from our overall experience in over two decades of operations is what you'll be impressed with. Everyone that has attended our training has told us it was the best investment they made because they had questions answered that they otherwise would have never thought of unless they were actually in the training with us.Once you have completed a training session, we're also available to help you as long as you need us in your planning and setting up your own business. The only other time we charge any fees for helping you is if you need us as a consultant to travel and work at your location. The charge for that is $500.00 per day, plus travel expenses. This is rarely needed since we can usually help you without actually having to travel to your location, but it's available if necessary.Just as any new business venture, it should include sound advance knowledge before you can successfully implement your plans. We are dedicated to helping folks acquire the knowledge needed to succeed in a funnel cake business with as little cost as possible.
