The Funnel Cake Company
FUNNEL CAKE VENDOR
TRAINING CLASSES AVAILABLE
Vendor 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.
For training in our Gatlinburg location, please email us and we'll give you the contact
phone number needed to arrange the session date. We'll also provide you with
information on accommodations that are closest to our store if you need it. All
training is done on an individual basis with never more than one party at a time
scheduled, to make sure you have undivided attention during the entire session.
