The Beginning of The Food Trucks (wagons) in Denver Colorado

ChuckwagonOld                 Charles Goodnight invented the Chuck Wagon in 1866. Goodnight and his partner, Oliver Loving made a Trail Drive of 2,000 longhorns from the Fort Belknap area in northern Texas, to Denver Colorado. Goodnight purchased a U.S. Government Wagon and had it completely rebuilt according to his specifications. The distinguishing feature of the wagon was the sloping box on the rear with hinged lid that lowered to become a cook’s table. The box was fitted to the width of the Wagon and contained shelves and drawers for holding food and utensils. “Chuck” was food to a cowboy. So the Wagon that carried the food became the ” Chuck Wagon “.ilCafeLogo(1)

Kopi luwak

 Or civet coffee, is the world’s most expensive and low-production varieties of coffee.
“Kopi” the Indonesian word for coffee along with “luwak” is local name of this animal which eats the raw red coffee beans. The civet digests the soft outer part of the coffee cherry, but does not digest the inner beans and excretes them.Apparently the internal digestion ends up adds a unique flavor to the beans, removing the bitter flavor, and then beans are then picked up by locals and sold.
The most expensive coffee in the world, selling for between US$100 and $600 per pound. The specialty Vietnamese weasel coffee, is sold at $$3,000 per pound. If you can get over the fact that you are drinking such a strange brew.
Kopi luwak is produced mainly on Indonesian. It is also produced in Philippines and Vietnam has 2 farms with 300 wild civets. The farmers collect the coffee seeds and produce only 300 kg. (661 pounds). per year of authentic Vietnamese chon coffee.ilCafeLogo(1)

We Are NOT A Fad!

Better Know a Food Truck Vol. 1

As a food truck entrepreneur, I always have my eyes peeled for unknown trucks.  Especially the wolf-in-sheep’s-clothing type.  You see, I think the glory of the food truck is that it allows food creators an affordable access to the food service market.  Where a restaurant will cost you minimum $50k and more realistically like $150k,  We started serving food from our trailer with about $7k initial investment.  It’s the passion and bootstrapping that makes the food from food trucks so good.  So keep your eyes peeled for these imposters:

Aramark Food Truck

This truck can be found, of all places… inside Rockies stadium.  Aramark’s not hiding that they understand that the food truck is an affordable way to add kitchen capacity.  But with those wheels covered up, it makes me wonder, to what commissary does this truck report?

 

When I saw the Blue Bear Burgers truck parked out front of the SIA SnowShow at the Convention Center, the first thing that struck me was the California plates.  Anybody with a food truck will attest that the concept of a road trip in a food truck would be terrifying, but this photo from their FB page shows the real secret.  Upon closer inspection, I found this truck to be owned by Centerplate, “the largest hospitality partner to North America’s premier sports stadiums, convention centers, and entertainment venues.”  Luckily for us, the food truck biz is no Get Rich Quick scheme, and corporations don’t generally have the where-with-all to keep their trucks out all the time.

Lastly, I saw this truck beating up I-70 outside of Rifle on my way to Moab for some biking.  The Mexican trucks don’t get a lot of credit from the “Gourmet Food Truck” scene but these are the hard working folks who started things way back in the day, and you will notice that lots of the trucks on Food Truck Row are rebuilt and re-wrapped taco trucks.  If you are ever after a fantastic torta, just cruise Federal Blvd, and take your pick from any one of the dozen’s of hard working caminos.

Three Food Trucks from Food Truck Row Named “Best of Denver” in 2012 by Westword!

Congratulations to the three food trucks from the Food Truck Row who were bestowed the honor of being named Denver’s BEST in 2012!

MANNA FROM HEAVEN: Best Food Truck

Talk about a movable feast! Manna from Heaven lives up to its name, turning out celestial Vietnamese street chow, including an amazing banh mi that’s built with pork, cilantro and fresh vegetables, quality ingredients all heaped on a first-rate baguette streaked with a spicy sauce of sriracha and mayonnaise. But the congenial crew — it’s a family affair — stakes its reputation on more than just this dish: You’ll find other traditional pleasures such as fresh spring rolls, Vietnamese noodle soups and fruit smoothies best sucked up with an oversized straw.

Market St (between 14th and 15th):

  • Basic Kneads

Food Truck Row – A Force To Be Reckoned With

Welcome to Food Truck Row!

Food Truck Row is just that, a row of food trucks set up at specific and varying locations on a rotating basis.  Our goal is to keep food trucks in the public eye and make sure AWESOME street food is available to the public year round not just the summer months.  We are continuing with and fostering a deeper sense of community within the gourmet food truck industry by working side by side or (bumper to bumper) as it were…

When we are gathered together, Gourmet food trucks offer a variety of food offerings to the roaming hungry, and our fans come to the trucks regardless of location thus, helping them find new things to do in areas they might not ordinarily visit.  This creates a win-win situation for the businesses we park near because our fans will be more likely to patronize these other establishments.  Additionally, by working together we create a festive environment for not only the fans and customers but, for the trucks as well.

The only restrictions Food Truck Row may have is space limitations.  Some locations can only handle 4 trucks whereas, other locations are limitless.  We are continually looking for good spots to serve our food and have as many trucks as possible both DAY and NIGHT.

Food Truck Row:  Together, we hope to be able to bring people joy and passion by eating wholesome food, with a variety of choices AND to educate the public and businesses of the positive impact that food trucks have in the economy, increase awareness and collaboration with the surrounding businesses, and above all create COMMUNITY!!!
