13 Specially For the Pancake Week

Specially For the Pancake Week

Posted on February 23, 2012 by

This year’s pancake week is at its height and we want to tell you about a young entrepreneur whose name is Yermek and who has a small pancake business.

He combines his business with working in the Pension Fund. The idea to open a pancake stall occurred to him three years ago. He did a big job analyzing the market, collecting information and calculating. He had just $15,000 to start his business and this is exactly how much he spent. This spring his pancake stall is going to celebrate its first birthday.

He has to make dough at home because the stall is too small for that. He and his wife designed the recipe for their pancakes by themselves by mixing the ingredients in different proportions. They have their own cooking secrets (special temperature of milk and time of kneading) which allow them to preserve their dough fresh all day long .

His wife Anastasia sells pancakes. She liked the idea of opening their own pancake stall and she always supports her husband in all his undertakings.

They make 3 to 4 liters of dough on workdays and about 5 liters on Sundays.

Their son is 18 months old and he sometimes helps his parents to knead pancake dough.

They have to bring the dough they’ve just made to the stall.

The man took a day off to personally show you how they sell pancakes.

The stall brings about $270 a month but the business is just developing. Once the pancake stall opened, they fined them $400 for not installing a cash register in time. They could have made a warning at first.

This is the stall. Yermek bought it with a good discount.

His wife sells pancakes on workdays while he works at weekends. Yermek says that patience is what important when you start your business. Stick to your idea no matter what.

People love this place because they are sure in cleanliness and neatness of the stall and its owners.

They disinfect their hands before making pancakes with medical disinfectant used by surgeons.

    Yes, it is French style, but who cares, as long as the pancakes are made with good ingrediants and are tasty ?
    Good luck Yermek. By the way, in Brittany (a Celtic region of France), “la galette-saucisse” is also very popular. It’s a pancack made of a blend of plain flour and sarasin flour with a local sausage (porc, spices and herbes). It would be a good idea with a local sausage, non ?

    I like pancakes oh yes I do, but where did the 15 grand go?

  13. Leigh says:

    Real easy to spend money on a new business, anything related to food needs regular health inspections and extra licencing. like he was saying earlier 400$ fine for “no cash regester” .. probably should have reported it “stolen” before he bought it :)
