Wow, we can’t really believe that we are three days away from our grand opening.
There have been a few setbacks along the way, and for a brief minute I almost doubted an August 1 grand opening.
Once the cart malfunctions were addressed and we got the thumbs up from the health department, we set out to look for a location.
Our first choice was the parking lot of a local gas station. We had seen other’s selling their goods in that spot; we felt confident we could get it if the town didn’t let us operate on the square.
We soon learned why people set up to sell, but don’t often stay long term. We felt the rent the owners wanted was a tad steep for a mobile cart operation. Hey, if I wanted a big rent, I would have just rented a spot.
We had kind of been put in hold by the town. They really weren’t sure what the legalities were since no one had ever requested to open a mobile food cart long term in town.
But alas, the actual brain trust (my wife and business partner) knows things and she definitely knows people.
She knew of a prime location to begin operations, she spoke to the people in charge of said location, and they quickly agreed to let us set up. For that, we are extremely blessed, humbled, and thankful.
So, it appears as if it’s time for us to let you know where we are going to be and when.
We started this business with the sole idea of providing good quality food extremely fast and totally affordable. We guarantee we will feed a family of four for under $20.00.
However, many expressed an interest in having something this awesome available during the lunch hours.
So, we got to thinking and it didn’t take long for us to amend our plans.
We will officially be open for lunch at 11:30 am at 211 N. State street in Chatham, IL.
If you’re not sure of the address, just go to our locations and hours page or look for the yellow and red umbrellas.
Or look for this sign.
