About this idea
Empanadas de yuca are a gluten free option. These empanadas are made out of the yuca root also known as cassava. Currently we make our empanadas from scratch by hands. We make our own dough and fillings. We have met with the MSU extension program to start selling our empanadas at Bridge street market. Clients would be able to go pick up their empanadas pack take them home with instruction on how to cook.
Yuca empanadas are an option for clients that for dietary reasons, allergies, health conditions can not enjoy our regular empanadas. Our yuca empanadas will be a perfect addition to any store to promote gluten free option but also promote food diversity.
What I'll do with $5,000
With $5000 we will buy equipment to make empanadas, with these equipment we will increase our productivity from 100 empanadas per hour to 600 per hour. This machine is called the maxi 600 and works with flour and yuca dough. It is an electric machine made entirely of stainless steel. The company that makes the machine is called empamaq with locations in Colombia and Florida. With this equipment we would be able to increase productivity and have the opportunity to sell to more stores but also sell them in our food truck.
