The Fuel Food Truck loaded up and headed east this morning to cater ABC’s hit program, “Nashville.”
Owner and operator of the Fuel Cafe and Fuel Food Truck, Erik Proveaux has a history in catering film projects and has made several trips to feed the cast and crew of television show shot in the Tennessee capital.
“Every couple of weeks they have a double-up unit where they have a second crew that films and often they hire me to come up and take care of the second crew,” Proveaux said. “This is the fourth time so far.”
Proveaux has some experience in this type of catering, He also catered last year’s blockbuster hit “The Hunger Games” and its upcoming sequel, which were both filmed in Atlanta.
He gained exposure for catering to film sets during filming of the 2008 movie “Nothing But the Truth,” which was filmed in Memphis.
The jobs pay well also, making the long haul worthwhile.
“They pay me for a prep day, my travel expenses, they pay for the wrap day and they pay me as a teamster,” said Proveaux. “For one day’s work, it’s like getting paid for three.”
