Campaign Story

I, Roxy Dominguez, have been a player in the restaurant industry for over 20 years. Libations are my specialty and my passion for providing hospitality through a liquid experience is what I relish in.

I was unfortunately beginning to feel discouraged that the industry was just too unstable and risky after the last financial crisis and the pandemic. I’ve had to walk away from other business ventures in the past, but still no other vocation has called to me, and I refuse to give up my dream of owning and running my own business.

The idea of the Blushing Burro Mobile Libations came to me when we moved to Lander, Wyoming and into a house that has a massive over-sized garage; perfect for dreaming, scheming, and creating. Before my husband, Borja Dominguez, takes on a new job this Spring we decided that we could purchase a 1973 Stidham horse trailer and complete the build out of a mobile bar to cater events and weddings around the Lander area. Providing draft beer hookups, refrigeration, and the space to prepare and serve both non-alcoholic and cocktails is our end goal.

We are trying to avoid the high interest rates of loans and going into debt over the construction and purchase of equipment. We are aiming to take advantage of the time we have now to devote to the project. Our mission is to have the bar up and running in late Spring of 2023. Having devoted so much of my life working in restaurants helping to create memories and providing experiences to remember I’m hoping to rely on the kindness of contributors, people that believe in me, to help fund our campaign so I can continue my passion to serve.

I am excited to provide a variety of tangible rewards with my new logo and beverage-based gifts as well as the reward of future bookings of the Blushing Burro to contributors. There will be raffle prizes too for following and sharing @blushing_burro. I want everyone who contributes to feel the excitement and witness the progression of the build, I will update constantly on social media from the installation of new floorboards to the tapping of the first keg I want my community to be a part of it all. The results of many small contributions will fund my passion into reality.

Phase 1 of my campaign is to raise the funds to complete the structural buildout. We will need wood, the concession window, the welding equipment, electrical components, a sink, paint and and the kegerator. If my initial goal is met I can move on to phase 2 which will include additional refrigeration units, coolers, and bar equipment.

Please donate to my cause and today and share the campaign with your friends. Together let’s build the burro!

    The Build the Burro Campaign is coming to an end.

    We want to thank everyone that has supported us along the way with contributions towards our new venture.  We are touched by your generosity and encouragement.

     

    We have managed to purchase a lot of the materials and equipment we needed to build the mobile bar. The welding machine and paint sprayer were key to helping us save money on getting the job done ourselves. It has been one of the coldest winters on record here in our little town which has added to the challenges of building this season. We had to purchase and borrow heaters and keep the propane bottles full to make our garage warm enough to get the paint job done. We are excited to have our beautiful bar top and shelves ready to install along with our hand sink and plumbing equipment. Our beer tap system is ordered and we have been working hard on our marketing campaign securing bookings for this summer season. We have a new juicer and dehydrator and have been having fun coming up with cocktail recipes that are going to be a hit this summer.

     

    On the back end, all the legal costs of starting a business along with the accounting, and insurance costs have been funded partially by your support too.

     

    I have been working hard serving tables on the side throughout the business start-up and Borja has been freezing and working hard in the garage all winter. We have our first event booked in late May and can’t wait for our backyard kickoff party too.

     

    The Blushing Burro Mobile Libations is coming to Lander this May 2023 thanks to you!

     

    Cheers,

    Roxy, Borja and the Blushing Burro!
