This little bloggy post won’t be so long, as I’m currently preoccupied with a few projects, one if which I am VERY excited about:
…but there was something that caught my eye on the Twitter feed that I just wanted to address and clarify.
@EmmeBryson – Our trucks are old. And we rent them. But you are more than welcome to buy us a state-of-the-art, shiny new one. 🙂 And franchises may seem fine and dandy, but it’s a whole other can of worms we do not wish to open. We’re mom and pop and franchising, from the offers we’ve received so far, will indicate much higher prices to the consumer for a lower standard of food quality.
Also, the reason why we’re not out to lunch today is that we’ve got quite a few catering commitments to attend to, NOT because all of trucks have shut down.
@Sharky-I-don’t-have-the-patience-to-spell-your-twitter-name-correctly — Your comment is obnoxious and your complaint is lazy. So here’s my own lazy/obnoxious response: YOU invest in some decent food trucks and buy us some new ones, Big Baller/Shot Caller. And yeah, you hear a lotta things. But not half as many things as I’ve heard about yo mamma.
@benjaminbudzak — what an awesome name. Eh, I guess everyone’s got their day jobs to attend to.
So, what Benjamin and I’m guessing Shark Boy are referring to is this embarrassing grade on one of our trucks:
- LET US EXPLAAAAIN!!!
PLEASE NOTE: this is present on ONE of our trucks, and not ALL of our trucks, like instigator/Shark Boy may lead you to believe.
HERE IS THE STORY, straight from Papi Chulo himself:
We had an electrical failure at Abbot Kinney festival that affected our product and we had to shut down. Since then we have done our due diligence with the health department and have worked day and night to fulfill all demands. We will be reinspected within the next 10 days and are currently cleared to operate with full clearance. This was only one of our trucks and it only happened at a festival where we were stuck in a crowd of 10,000 with a broken truck.No excuses, but life is life.We faced the HD head on and made the necessary repairs and adjustments.
So there you have it. The C for crashing electrical failure during service shall be turned around shortly. Thanks for being so patience with us, to the folks who have been so patient with us!
And for those of you who need a little context as to how we run the streets, here’s a short clip:
And, with that, I shall leave you with an oldie but a goodie…
Love, tacos and clarifications,
