It started with an idea- and a mission we kept true to. Bring people together over food. It’s amazing how reminding yourself of why you are doing what you’re doing helps you stay on course and helps your success in the hardest of times.
I wanted to start something. I brought a team together. And we began developing on an idea. I led them someplace- someplace that led to another place that led to another place that eventually led to Dishcrawl. The path to success is definitely not a straight one. :) From wanting to be yelp but for dishes, to wanting to be an adventure game for foodies, to being a matchmaker for your mouth, the war stories and lessons learned there are invaluable now to our success. We hit the “oh duh” point early this year. Dishcrawls (our events) were taking off. Why not pivot and focus on what was working best in our business? And voila. Dishcrawl.
Dishcrawl is a community event that focuses on getting neighbors out. We’re the new progressive dinner, the new block party, and the new way to get to know your neighborhood. We take folks on food adventures through 4 restaurants in 1 night, stopping by to meet the chefs and owners, and giving folks an opportunity to sample their foods. It’s a lovely time, and it’s a lovely mission we’re on.
No matter what you start, make sure to keep true to your mission as we have ours, and it will be the flashlight that ultimately guides you to success. Cheers to taking over the world. ;)
