Not There Yet - Getting Closer to the Finish Line

We're getting closer to the finish line everyone! The truck is wrapped, the fire suppression system has been rebuilt to accommodate the new fryers and the fryers have been installed. The health department is saying our 3-compartment sink is too large for our water heater and water tanks. We have ordered a new sink and it is en route. We are getting so close. We are bummed we can’t open this weekend, but we will be opening soon and will keep you posted on the launch date when we know more. We are still planning for a June launch at The Big Wonderful.

New Launch Date

Digital flyer for The Ginger Pig Official Launch, June 2016 at The Big Wonderfull When it rains, it pours. Unfortunately, our rain date is a real push back of our opening day to sometime in early June 2016 at The Big Wonderful. Everything was going smoothly, but in the last week and a half, our food truck wrap got lost in the mail, it has been reprinted and reshipped and installation began yesterday. We also found out that we need additional gas lines installed and our fire suppression system needs to be rebuilt to accommodate our brand new fryers. Not sure how a 500 square foot piece of vinyl with a big pig on it disappears, but when it is found, we will have our wrap ready for truck # 2.

In other news, I'm freaking drooling over our new fryers and can't wait to fire them up soon. Did I mention the shirts, stickers, and aprons are here and our hats are on the way? Stay tuned to see the goods.

Launching a Dream at the Big Wonderful

The Big Wonderful - The Ginger Pig Official Launch We are thrilled to be launching our big wonderful food truck, The Ginger Pig, ONE MONTH FROM TODAY, on May 7th at The Big Wonderful in Denver.

The Big Wonderful is very special to us, it's where I first met Marcus, and his truck, The Shiitake Swerve. It was a beautiful Saturday last September in Denver and I went to The Big Wonderful with a couple of friends. I obviously had no idea that we would end up buying the Shiitake Swerve truck at the end of January. By then, Marcus had already become a mentor and a friend.

It is only fitting that we are launching Our Big Wonderful at The Big Wonderful. We are so excited to bring you some authentic Asian street food at The Ginger Pig truck. I'd like to thank everyone that's supported Steve and I along the way, you all know who you are cause I've probably thanked you one, two, or five times.
