As one of the first food trucks to hit the streets of Chicago in January, we embarked on a journey with little knowledge of what to expect. Despite having experience in the restaurant and business industries, we were low on funds and unsure about investing in something new. Some of our friends warned us that food trucking was far more challenging than running a restaurant, but we remained confident.
For over two years, we walked the streets of Chicago, cherishing every relationship we formed with our customers. However, those two years were the most challenging of our lives. To the outside world, we appeared to be crushing the competition, with lines around the block, and a booming Google page. Little did our supporters know that we were struggling. Every time we made money, the truck would break down or require repairs. Every penny we earned was immediately reinvested in the generator, engine, electrical and plumbing problems, and more.
Despite facing countless risks and challenges, we persevered with the unwavering support of our customers. Your encouragement motivates us to try something new every day. Whether you were there on the first day we opened our truck or the last, we appreciate you. Every meal, review, and referral brought us closer to our goal. We are grateful for each and every one of you.
