Good Dog finds new home by Michael Sudhalter michael@theleadernews.com

When Good Dog Hot Dogs owners Daniel Caballero and Amelia Pferd opened their food truck in March 2011, they always envisioned having a brick and mortar restaurant someday. Later this month, that dream will become a reality when the Heights couple opens their restaurant location at 903 Studewood. Pferd, 30, and Cabellero, 29, met when they both waited tables at Chatter’s Cafe & Bistro in the Heights. They began dating and came up with the idea of a food truck that would sell gourmet hot dogs on artisan buns, with a logo of their own Dachshund, whose name is Olive Oil. They purchased a $15,000 van on Craigslist and were among the first entrepreneurs in Houston’s “Food Truck Revolution.” Now, they take the truck to cater special events, but they’ve set most of their focus on the restaurant. They’ll continue to cater events with the truck, upon request. Some of their recent events were an art opening at Rice University, the First Christian Church food festival and the Houston Astros Hispanic Heritage Festival. Pferd, a graduate of La Notre Culinary School in Houston, handles the food aspect, and Caballero runs the business side. The couple got engaged last December, but their wedding plans are on hold until they get the restaurant started. The restaurant’s menu will go beyond hot dogs, and include soups, salads and desserts such as floats and shakes.“We will expand our menu (eventually),” Pferd said. “We have big

(Photo by Michael Sudhalter) plans for Good Dog, but we’ve got to open up this puppy (the restaurant first).” Pferd and Caballero enjoy living in the Heights and considered it a good place to start a business. “It’s kind of a small town feel and you have everything you need,” Pferd said. “We like the bungalows and all of the history. I think the (neighborhood) is evolving in the right ways.” Pferd said Good Dog’s recipes are heavily influenced by her grandmother who lived in

New York City. Some of the hot dogs include whole grain mustard, roasted garlic aioli, chili and jalapeno relish. The couple is proud of the “Food Truck Revolution,” which has produced several trucks that have eventually become brick and mortar restaurants. “(The Food Truck Revolution) brings a sense of community to Houston,” Pferd said. “Events become that much cooler because you have a food truck.”

Food Truck Park coming to Mangum by Charlotte Aguilar charlotte@theleadernews.com

After Brent Fisk returned to Houston after working in Austin, there was one craving he couldn’t shake –– a yearning for the simplicity and variety he devoured almost daily at the capital city’s thriving food truck parks. “They were perfect for grabbing lunch or a quick dinner,” he said, “and the variety is a big selling point.” So when the family of his girlfriend, Paige Hughes, was musing about what to do with a large, wooded piece of property on Mangum Road, not far north of Highway 290, he and Paige had the perfect solution: Create a food truck park to cater to the area’s businesses and residential communities. They hope to open the Mangum Food Park, as they’ve called it, on Oct. 19, and already have a lineup of trucks ready to serve. And they have commitments for the first few days from some of Houston’s favorite mobile eateries, including Bernie’s Burger Bus, H-town StrEATS, Porch Swing Desserts, Speers Rolling Bistro, Cupcake and a Smile, POCKet to Me and Phojita Fusion. “We’re finding lots of support because nothing exists like this in the area,” said Hughes. The couple met in their days at Jersey Village High School, bonded at the University of Houston and share a degree – and visible expertise – in marketing. Already, they have a web

Paige Hughes and Brent Fisk are aiming to open the bare bones Mangum Food Park on Oct. 19 at 2924 Mangum Road. (Photo by Charlotte Aguilar) and social media presence, which they’ll rely on heavily to make a success of the venture. The property at 2924 Mangum Road has been in Hughes’ family since the early 1900s and has been a dairy farm and residence. The main work so far has been clearing “lots of dead trees” from the lot, said Fisk. Enviably, there’s a row of large trees still standing along the south side of the land, which, along with canopied areas and plenty of tables, will provide shaded eating for those who prefer “dinein” to takeout.

They’ve met the city requirement for sanitary facilities on site or nearby by making arrangements with the bowling alley next door and a business in the strip center to the south for customers to wash up there. To hear Fisk and Hughes talk, creating such a park is relatively simple. The food trucks run off their own generators and are responsible for obtaining permits to operate. They must check in daily at city-operated commissaries (one of which is just a few miles up 290, the couple said) and largely provide their own publicity about daily locations through Facebook and Twitter. Still, Fisk and Hughes plan amenities to make their park a good stop for the food trucks. They’re already devising games (including a giant Jenga set that Fisk is creating from 2 x 4 boards), will book live music, and as the daily fees flow in, plan to install electricity for lighting, so they can extend their currently planned hours of 11 a.m.-6 p.m. daily. “We really want to bring something special to these areas,” said Fisk, “whether it’s workers who are here for a few hours or the families who live here.” “It will be a great addition, and we think it’s just going to grow and grow,” said Hughes.

Cleaning up small business practices by Cynthia Lescalleet For The Leader A decade ago, Michael Bright left the corporate world for small business ownership when he purchased On the Spot America, which moved recently to the Oak Forest area. Among the services his venture provides are carpet repair, cleaning, odor elimination, air duct cleaning and emergency clean-up for residential and commercial properties. Bright’s career-switching decision came after a successful run in hospitality and also multi-family development. His shift of perspective to that of a service vendor meant learning about a new industry -- as well as the infinite demands of its day-to-

grow even further. When Bright heard about the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses program offered with partner Houston Community College, he was determined to make the cut. The application process is as rigorous as the coursework, but he

persevered until he landed a slot. In September, Bright completed the program’s most recent fourmonth session of business management trainingBright described

Scarborough training program now encourages Wal-Mart managers later by Michael Sudhalter michael@theleadernews.com Seventy-five Scarborough High students -- 11 percent of the student body -- are enrolled in a retail management training class that will provide them immediate opportunities upon graduation. The program, Etel Retail, is a partnership between the high school, University of HoustonDowntown’s Center for Retail Management and Wal-Mart. Scarborough has set up a classroom to look like the inside of a Wal-Mart store. Nick Scribner, Wal-Mart human resources director for the Houston area, said the program may expand to other schools in Houston ISD. Students will study the megaretailer and may get to work at

After they graduated, they’ll receive a certificate from UHD that will help them as they pursue a career in retail management. “The training would most likely

benefit the students in acquiring a job in retailing and be an impressive addition to a resume,” said Tracy Davis, director of UHD’s Center for Retail Management. Assistant retail managers usually have a starting salary of between $32,000-$50,000. “The big benefit is it gives them another opportunity and for some of them, if they become an assistant store manager, they could double or triple their family’s income,” Scarborough principal Jason Catchings said. “Working there helps their family, their resume and helps them pay to go to college.” The three-year program has 40 freshmen, 13 sophomores and 22 juniors. The juniors will take extra classes to complete the program in two years.

“So far, it’s been good,” said the program’s teacher Sarah Ray. “We’re getting the kids involved in the program and getting them excited about it.” Scarborough teacher Stella Cunningham will teach an introductory class for the students, Principles of Business. In addition to learning about Wal-Mart stores, the students will travel to the Wal-Mart Distribution Center in Baytown and learn about the retailer’s transportation, loss prevention and community service outreach programs. Eventually, they may take a trip to Wal-Mart’s world headquarters in Bentonville, Ark. While the program now is focused on Wal-Mart, Firestone and Kroger have also committed to working with HISD schools.

Business leader, fellow activists make the case for immigration reform Stan Marek, CEO of Marek Family Industries at 2115 Judiway, described himself as a lifelong Republican. But he said the GOP must accept that immigration reform is an important priority for all Americans. “I’m practical, open-minded and far-sighted,” Marek said. During a presentation last month at his business’ headquarters, Marek and other immigration reform activists presented the case for improving the economy, health care, education, law enforcement and social services through immigration reform. Sam Dunning, director of the Office of Justice & Peace for the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston, presented the theological reasons behind immigration reform. The guests also heard from Cesar Espinosa, a businessman and a first-generation immigrant. Marek, who has been an immi-

gration reform activist since 2006, is a board member of Americans for Immigration Reform, an organization that was started through the Greater Houston Partnership. Marek operates a construction company and says that the current immigration policy allows competitors to pay immigrants less and treat them unfairly. Sixty percent of construction workers in Texas don’t have worker’s compensation -- something that Marek provides to all of his workers. When workers without worker’s

comp get injured, it’s the taxpayers that end up paying for their care. Immigrant workers are afraid to report mistreatment or unfair pay, because they don’t want to be deported. He emphasized the importance for stronger border security to stop drugs and human smuggling. But as far as illegal immigrants, who make up a big part of the economy, the government is missing out on millions of dollars in tax dollars if their status is legalized, Marek said.

For start-up businesses, where’s the money? One of the biggest challenges entrepreneurs and small business owners have is finding the money to start and operate a successful venture. Regardless of where you are in the process, it is important to have your finances lined up before you start the venture. So, where does the money come from to start and run a company? Consider the following sources of capital (or combinations thereof…) for your business:

DON B ALL Small Business Consultant, Lone Star College

Credit cards

many is made by the bank. That is why it is so important to present a solid, well-thought-out, business plan explaining what you are planning to do and how you will use the proceeds of the loan. There are many SBA loan guarantee options available. Go to the SBA website to learn more about the different SBA loan guarantee options.

Friends and Family:

While friends and family investors/lenders are certainly a source of capital for your small business (especially if you have low credit scores and no money to invest yourself), remember that when you are gathered around the table at Thanksgiving, those are not your friends and family. They are investors and lenders in your business venture and although it may go unsaid, they are probably thinking…”I wonder how my investment is doing…” or “I wonder when they are going to start paying me back”. Be careful about using this option!

A popular method for obtaining funds for a new venture or idea is the use of crowdfunding. Wikipedia defines crowdfunding as: “the collective effort of individuals who network and pool their money, usually via the Internet, to support efforts initiated by other people or organizations.” This may be a good option if you need capital to build a prototype of your product-but be careful about patents and trademarks! •Equity partners: Venture Capital companies and private equity investors (“Angel Investors”) are another option if you have a new, well-documented product. However, these investors and investor groups may want the lion’s share ownership in the business, seats on your board and a quick, substantial return on their investment. Look at the details of the investment carefully before giving up ownership in your business.

Grants are typically available to assist some non-profit businesses but are not available to start a new business. Occasionally grants are available to assist with some aspect of for-profit small businesses. The SBA makes their position clear on their website regarding grants with the statement: “Although SBA does not provide grants to start or grow a business, certain grants do exist for very specific groups, organizations, or activities – such as businesses involved in scientific research and development.”

Banks

Start-up entrepreneurs and small business owners often go to their local bank for a “Small Business Loan”, or, as they often refer to it, an “SBA Loan.” Remember that the SBA doesn’t loan the money to you –– the local bank does. The SBA simply provides a guarantee to the bank to loan the money, thereby reducing their risk and making your deal more attractive. The final decision to loan the

Yourself

Regardless of the source of funds for your business, all lenders and investors want to see how committed you are to the project and most will require that you invest in the venture as well. In fact, due to credit or other issues you may have to fund the entire venture. That’s okay, because it means that

his company’s previous operations as if there were “buckets everywhere, each filled with a little of everything.” “I can’t do five things at once,” Bright says he realized, but needed help ranking and managing it all. Now, each bucket contains one aspect of operations, and he’s dealing with them one at a time. The program was “an eye-opener,” he says, and it gave him tools to work on his business, not just in his business. He found the instruction modules on processes and procedures, staff training and deployment, and marketing particularly useful. And the business growth plan each member of the class produces allowed him to reflect upon his company’s mission, future -- and steps toward both.

While we’re discussing personal investment, don’t forget credit cards. Credit cards are often used to get cash advances, but this op-

tion is very expensive with high interest rates and very risky if you don’t pay off the balances quickly. Use credit cards only for shortterm expenses when you know when/how you will pay the borrowed amount back in full. They should not be used as a means for funding a start-up business. The best option? Obtain the guidance of an SBDC Counselor to determine the best method for obtaining the funding you need for your venture!

NOTICE OF RECEIPT OF APPLICATION AND INTENT TO OBTAIN AIR PERMIT AIR QUALITY PERMIT NUMBER 19851 APPLICATION International Paint LLC has applied to the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) for an amendment to Air Quality Permit Number 19851, which would authorize modification to the paint manufacturing facility located at 6001 Antoine Drive, Houston, Harris County, Texas 77091. This link to an electronic map of the site or facility’s general location is provided as a public courtesy and not part of the application or notice. For exact location, refer to application. http://www.tceq.texas.gov/assets/public/ hb610/index.html?lat=29.852777&lng=-95.473611&zoom=13&type=r. The facility will emit the following contaminants: organic compounds, hazardous air pollutants, and particulate matter including particulate matter with diameters of 10 microns or less and 2.5 microns or less. This application was submitted to the TCEQ on September 25, 2013. The application will be available for viewing and copying at the TCEQ central office, the TCEQ Houston regional office, and the Collier Regional Library, 6200 Pinemont Drive, Houston, Harris County, Texas, beginning the first day of publication of this notice.

The executive director has determined the application is administratively complete and will conduct a technical review of the application. PUBLIC COMMENT/PUBLIC MEETING You may submit public comments, a request for a public meeting, or request a contested case hearing to the Office of the Chief Clerk at the address below. The TCEQ will consider all public comments in developing a final decision on the application. The deadline to submit public comments is 30 days after newspaper notice is published. The purpose of a public meeting is to provide the opportunity to submit comments or ask questions about the application. A public meeting about the application will be held if the executive director determines that there is a significant degree of public interest in the application or if requested by a local legislator. A public meeting is not a contested case hearing. If only comments are received on the application, the response to comments, along with notice of the executive director’s action on the application, will be mailed to everyone who submitted comments or is on the mailing list for this application. The executive director will complete the technical review, issue a preliminary decision on the application, and a Notice of Application and Preliminary Decision will be published and mailed to those who are on the mailing list for this application. That notice will contain the final deadline for submitting public comments. If a hearing request is timely filed in Response to this Notice of Receipt of Application and Intent to Obtain Air Permit, the time period for requesting a contested case hearing will be extended to thirty days after the mailing of the executive director’s response to comments. After the final deadline for public comments following the Notice of Application and Preliminary Decision, the executive director will consider the comments and prepare a response to all relevant and material, or significant public comments. If comments are received, the response to comments, along with the executive director’s decision on the application, will then be mailed to everyone who submitted public comments or is on a mailing list for this application. OPPORTUNITY FOR A CONTESTED CASE HEARING You may request a contested case hearing. A contested case hearing is a legal proceeding similar to a civil trial in state district court. Unless a written request for a contested case hearing is filed within 30 days from this notice, the executive director may approve the application. A contested case hearing will only be granted based on disputed issues of fact that are relevant and material to the Commission’s decisions on the application. Further, the Commission will only grant a hearing on issues raised by you or others during the public comment period and not withdrawn. A person who may be affected by emissions of air contaminants from the facility is entitled to request a hearing. If requesting a contested case hearing, you must submit the following: (1) your name (or for a group or association, an official representative), mailing address, daytime phone number, and fax number, if any; (2) applicant’s name and permit number; (3) the statement “[I/we] request a contested case hearing”; (4) a specific description of how you would be adversely affected by the application and air emissions from the facility in a way not common to the general public; (5) the location and distance of your property relative to the facility; and (6) a description of how you use the property which may be impacted by the facility. If the request is made by a group or an association, the one or more members who have standing to request a hearing and the interests which the group or association seeks to protect, must also be identified. You may also submit your proposed adjustments to the application/permit which would satisfy your concerns. Following the close of all applicable comment and request periods, the executive director will forward the application and any requests for contested case hearing to the Commissioners for their consideration at a scheduled Commission meeting. If a hearing is granted, the subject of a hearing will be limited to disputed issues of fact relating to relevant and material air quality concerns raised during the comment period. Issues such as property values, noise, traffic safety, and zoning are outside of the Commission’s jurisdiction to address in this proceeding.

here are many ways in which technology has improved our lives. E-mail allows us to keep in touch with friends and family more readily than traditional mail. Cell phones allow us to be reached almost anywhere on the planet and are a boon to both commerce and communication. With smart phones and I-Pads we have a whole world of information at our ngertips with just a few keystrokes. But, the downside to all of this technology is that it tends to interfere with our face-to-face interactions, watering down our lives. Consider how often we are trying to have a heart-to-heart conversation and are interrupted by the cell phone. Even worse is the person who refuses to put down their phone during a conversation, insisting that they can attend to two things at once. Many people nowadays have trouble focusing on one thing at a time, no doubt in part because they have grown up constantly multi-tasking and never really having to focus on just one thing. The real downside to this is that multi-taskers miss out on the experience of truly savoring life. There are times when we need to multi-task; the mother cooking dinner and looking after her children may not have the luxury of doing just one thing. But, there are other times when we really need to just do one thing, and do it well, such as driving a car or having an important conversation.

Do you enjoy kicking or receiving more? “I can’t really pick one over the other. Receiving-wise, I’ve grown a lot since I started.

He has something about him that us receivers really liked.”
