First, we chatted with Coolhaus Ice Cream Sandwiches Truck (locations in Los Angeles, Austin, Manhattan and The Hamptons) CEO Natasha Case who told us about a crazy customer that wanted to trade a tattoo for some ice cream sandwiches.
Tip: Track down the Coolhaus truck on Twitter (@coolhaus, @coolhausatx, @coolhausny) and try the Dirty Mint Chip. It will convert even the non-mint lovers.
The line for the Luke’s Lobster Truck (@lukeslobster) was insane, so we were lucky enough to snag Mike Waskom for a few minutes (though not lucky enough to snag a lobster roll – all sold out!). He agrees with Natasha that starting a food truck is a hard business, evidenced with how frequently he goes to City Hall to fight parking tickets.
You know you’re in for a sweet treat with the Big Gay Ice Cream Truck (@biggayicecream) but perhaps even better than the ice cream and its huge range of toppings is the driver, Doug Quint. He regales us with a story about a customer who instead of grabbing ice cream by its cone, grabbed it by the ice cream itself.
So, if you have a small bladder, being a food truck driver is not the job for you.
