Tonight's Food Truck Meet-Up: Toyotas to Drive and a Bounce House for the Kids. Oh Yeah, And We Profile Caza Crepes Food Truck
place tonight, Friday, from 6-11 p.m. outside of Lexus of West Kendall at
13750 SW 136th Street. This week, he said to expect a bunch of
surprises. There will be a bounce house and face
painting for the kids, and the chance to test drive Toyotas and Lexuses
for the grownups.
Short Order visited Kevin Gleizes, owner of the Caza Crepes food truck andf organizer of the meet-up, to ask him a few questions about life on wheels.
Gleizes: About six months now.
We had a catering service, catering and delivery in the Doral. We had the choice to get the truck, to be mobile, and we go almost everywhere and show a little bit about we are doing.
What I like is something which is really simple. The Nutella crepe, but the Nutella and banana is pretty good, too.
The most interesting thing is that you realize how much people are following the trucks, following us on Facebook and Twitter, about all the social media. We realize that we have followers, and this is pretty cool. We enjoy the fact that people like what we are doing, and they follow us almost everywhere, even if they have to drive for like two, three hours, sometimes in a traffic jam.
Right now, I'm organizing a main event, which is the Tamiami event. I really would like that we keep going in the same way, all together, keep all the trucks as a food court, and we can develop a food truck industry, and not just a trailer on one side of the city, and another truck on the other side of the city. I think that we can develop a different business now a different way to do it with food court, and people can come and enjoy different kinds of food, they can come like tonight with tables, chairs, with kids, it's really friendly and family-friendly.
