Part III

Fourth of July Fireworks As people and business owners, Frank and I are very protective of our team. We want the best for all of them and care about their welfare, safety and general well-being. One day, all of that was put to the test in one of the scariest moments in food truck history. It was 4th of July at Canalside. Fantastic day, perfect weather. And busy! Jill Marie, Dan and I all planned on watching the firework show at the end of the night. Well, that never happened. About five minutes after selling out and closing the service window, Jill and I heard loud noises and people racing by the food truck.

The last five years have been pretty incredible. And while we like talking about all of the fun stuff, there have been plenty of nightmares. It’s part of the process, I guess – learning, growing, figuring things out. Frank and I have tried to suppress a lot of the traumatic episodes from our memory. Still, there are moments that we will never forget. We never mentioned them or made them public. But, at the time, they were big deals – almost, in many instances, an end to Frank. Still, we continued on. And now we can look back, shake our head and crack a smile. In honor of five years, we’ve decided to open the vault and reveal ten of the wildest moments in our food truck history in an original three part series.   PERA After months of researching food trucks on Craigslist, Frank finally found a truck he
