When I arrived at the truck’s location, and the owner was outside ready to meet us, I felt pretty special.
When David, my mechanically-minded friend, checked the overall status of the truck, I felt professional.
When Patrick, my business-minded friend, bargained with the owner on my behalf, I felt like the man.
But when Rachel, my wife, handed him the check to take it off of craigslist, sh*t got real.
We just bought a food truck.
Now that we have the truck, the next phase will be a mix of creative research, logistical planning, and old fashioned elbow grease. In addition to working my full time job, I'll be refining my recipes and procedures with regard to the truck's capabilities.
Rachel will be heading up the acquisition of all the necessary paperwork and securing a vending location. If this wasn't enough, the truck needs a good thorough cleaning.
There's no time to waste, it’s time to start trucking...
