Feverish’s Felecia Hatcher on Gaming and Ice Cream Sandwiches

21 Feb

Felecia Hatcher is a Palm Beach native, former Wii slinger, and a true ice cream lover. She and her husband Derick Pearson co-own Feverishone of the longest running “food” trucks in the area, selling frozen desserts. They just introduced six new Feverish carts around the city, taking their sweets to unexplored and harder-to-get-to-in-a-truck places. The look and vibe is fun and funky — and ice cream’s the perfect way to bring down your body temp on a steamy Miami eve.

As the weather warms, you’ll be seeing more of Feverish at the food truck meet-ups. They’ll likely be at the Biscayne Plaza (NE 81st Street and Biscayne Boulevard, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.) on Thursday afternoons and on Tuesday evenings at the North End Biscayne Triangle Truck Roundup (127th Street and Biscayne Boulevard, 5:30 to 10 p.m.). They’ll be parked at Las Olas Farmers Market this Sunday, the Jackson Memorial Hospital Farmer’s Market on Thursday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., and the Wilton Manors Farmers Market in March.

New Times: What did you do before you started Feverish?

Felecia Hatcher: I had a career of a little over five years as a marketing manager. I traveled around the country putting together experiential marketing campaigns, and right before Feverish, I was working for Nintendo.

Lets face it people(including me and you) always want to be associated with the next big thing and if you evolve the right way and continue to evaluate your business and it’s mission you will have loyal customers and brand campions.

2 Sep

Hey I found this nice article from youngentrtepreneur.com and thought of sharing it with you

When starting a business many entrepreneurs make the mistake of hiring friends.

Partnership Agreements: A Vital Aspect of Business Planning

13 Aug

Hey I found this nice article from youngentrepreneur.com and thought of sharing it with you

In business, there is an old saying that partnerships are easy to get into, but difficult to get out of. While not every partnership is doomed to failure, this old saying reflects how important it is to plan partnerships in the correct way. It is easy to be enthusiastic about a partnership in the beginning, when both partners are driven by the prospect of success. But if the partnership agreement does not specify who does (and gets) what as the business evolves, the partnership is likely to cause problems that nobody signed up for.

Are you 50 games ready?

23 Mar

Are you 50 game ready he said, he being Chris Wright President of the NBA team the Minnesota Timberwolves and at the time my boss. It was the point when a boring speech got interesting because I has no idea what he was talking about. To make a long story short the 08 season for the team was like the worst ever and being 50 game ready means once we become successful are we internally ready to handle it, handle the success, the attention we all really want it, write goals to achive, pray about it and dream about it. But when it knocks on the door heck clobbers us over the head what’s the next step?

I asked myself that same question 2 months ago. I got a write up on a website I mean just amazing press I could not have paid for what came after it. The calls the emails it seems like everyone was having a party and wanted us there. But…we wern’t prepared, not even enough to handle responding back to emails more over we were having mechanical problems and could not go out that night to immedately capitalize on the new found attention. What happened a lot of nothing and everything at the same time.

When that big client calls, or you win a big contract or heck Oprah calls will you be ready?
