On Tuesday, we were able to go down to Texas Cart Builders and learn how to run everything on the truck. We got a very thorough lesson in generators, electricity, amps, watts, propane, and electric cords. It was so helpful, and Zack, who is the man behind the food truck scene in Houston was an excellent teacher.
We were also able to go through the truck and come up with a punch list of a few more things to truly customize our operation. We know now where we want to hang the paper towel rack, where the spice rack will go, and where we will be placing the menu and giving basket. The people we are working with have great customer service, and they want it all to be perfect also.
We are doing a test run of the kitchen itself tomorrow. We will be at the garage, cooking on all the new equipment. We are honored that our first meal in the truck will be going to the hard working crew that built the truck. On Friday, we hope to take full possession of the truck. Saturday we will prep for our first public serving, which will be Sunday, at the Super Serve Event. What a great Super Bowl weekend! HTown will be well represented!
The following videos were taken yesterday at our class.
Keep checking back for more info on the truck. We are super close now!
