I'll give you the food truck perspective from where I was standing. We (The Pickle) were at the 10th & P'tree location.
It's interesting that Bobby's comments make some blanket statements about the Midtown event specifically and Atlanta food trucks generally, w/out getting to our corner at 10th St.
We did not run out of food, I am sure that the Tamale Queen truck had food till the end of the event as well.
That being said, I was not happy with our (The Pickle's) performance on Thurs. I made some assumptions on the volume we would do, and I underestimated by more than a little. I didn't prepare enough food, and we could have. But I've been burned more than once and without a history to go out, I made my best guess. Next week, we will have plenty of food and additional staff, hopefully anyone we disappointed with execution on Thurs will take another shot and see how good(and quick) food from a truck can be.
It was great to see all the support from the folks in Midtown. We will be better next week. And hopefully this is a business model that will be allowed to grow and thrive in our city
Saw several of these this afternoon on Cherokee. Was baffled and amazed.
The ice will all be melted tomorrow and the city will be paying to clean up the sand.
Who makes these decisions? Maybe CoA should hire someone with a little experience ........with winter.
