MY DREAM HAS COME TRUE! (long)

post #1 of 64

OMG, OMG, OMG!!! I cannot believe it has happened, especially the way it happened!
This past Saturday I got a call from a very prominent cake shop owner asking me if they could send business my way for spring, as they are getting really busy...well, he!! yes! So we were talking and talking and found out that the owner has been diagnosed with a medical problem that hinders their ability to work in this business and they found out that I am looking for a space to rent as I am growing and growing. I went to look at the shop....Holy Moly! 60 qt hobart, 20 qt hobart, double gas blodgett oven, walk-in cooler, walk-in freezer, 2 tasting rooms, 2400sq ft, At this point I am drooling.

This owner is looking for the "right person" to take over their "baby". They talked to 3 other people who wanted to buy it and they think that I am the right person....next week we are signing the papers, the business and ALL the paid in full equipment is MINE!!!! I bought the cake business, with an unbelievably low rent! Unbelievably low down payment and unbelievably low cost. It is truly a miracle. God has blessed me beyond belief! I have been dreaming about this forever. I have been decorating for 33 years and just dreamed of this day!
Everything is ready in the shop, I can just walk in and start business! I keep the name and the cake orders....tons! I bring my business into it and go from there!
Now it will take my entire life savings, but it is just money and this is my dream!

I am still in shock, got some legal stuff to do, but they are making it really easy. Oh, the shop has a paid spot in the BIG time wedding show in Jan.
I cannot believe this has happened. When I think about all the scenarios that I was considering....this one wasn't even on the table and voila! It happened.
Thanks for letting me rant, I am so excited that I could wet myself!
Wish me luck!

Thanks! Yes, the owner wants to stick around and offer me some marketing guidance and I am thrilled with that. Cakes and bakery I know, marketing...not so much.
