These wandering restaurants full of delicious and diverse chef-made wonders are also converging at The Yellow Cab Building on March 20th, and every third Friday throughout the summer and fall from 5-10pm Scheduled to be on site Friday are Harvest Mobile Cuisine, Voodoo Taco Company, Ramen Rickshaw, The Shakery Juice Bar, Smokin BeeBeeq, “Eat” food truck and Fronana!.
“It’s a unique way for customers to support independent small business. Across the country, there is a trend for potential restaurateurs to test a concept in a food truck before investing in a stand alone building. Food trucks are a first step for many people to realize their dream of owning a restaurant,” organizer Brian Johnson said.
In addition to being able to support local food trucks, attendees will be supporting a community of businesses. “The Yellow Cab has always collaborated with small businesses, and the food truck rallies allow us to go beyond just serving food. We’ll have everything from cupcake bakers, to bottled HouseMade Sriracha, to local craft breweries such as Yellow Springs Brewery, Toxic and Warped Wing.
New this year at the Yellow Cab Truck will be the addition of a movie to the food truck rally. “We’ll be hosting a screening of ‘Chef’ at 7:30pm. It’s a great film that highlights the struggles and rewards of owning a small business through the lens of a Food Truck operator. It’s very inspiring and relevant to what we are trying to accomplish at The Yellow Cab,” continued Johnson.
