A longtime fixture of the Dayton food truck scene, Katie Marks of The Wicked ‘Wich of Dayton will be closing at the end of this season to deal with recently discovered serious health concerns. Rallying around her, The Yellow Cab and all of the trucks for the September 15 monthly Yellow Cab Food Truck Rally will be participating in a very special Sandwich Rally for Katie.
“Katie and The Wicked ’Wich have been hugely important for food trucks here in Dayton,” Brian Johnson, organizer of the Yellow Cab Food Truck Rallys said. “As soon as word got out about her health, we knew that we wanted to do something to help.”
At the September 15 Sandwich Rally for Katie, participating trucks will be donating $1 from every sandwich or specified item towards her medical bills. The Yellow Cab will also be donating a portion of the night’s bar sales to help.
“The doctors are optimistic about her situation, so we’re confident it’s only a matter of time before Katie is back in the community,” Johnson said. “Hopefully this Rally can help alleviate some of the stresses she has to deal with in the near future.”
Trucks participating in the Sandwich Rally for Katie will be Ramen Rickshaw, El Meson, Smokin’ Bee-Bee-Q, Thai1On, Greek Street Food Truck, The Drunken Waffle, Hunger Paynes Food Truck, Sweet P’s Handcrafted Ice Pops, Flying Santucci Bros., and Creme de la Creme Cakery. Local craft beer will be on draft, cocktails available at the bar, The Night Market will feature an array of local artisan vendors and live music is planned.
For those interested in attending the Yellow Cab Food Truck Rally, the event takes place on the third Friday of every month through October from 5-10pm. The Sandwich Rally for Katie will be at this month’s event on Friday, September 15.
