OK, so vending trucks have been around for years, selling edible goodies like ice cream and lemonade. And lately these trucks seem to be making a wonderful and broadened comeback. Shows like “ The Great Food Truck Race” are case in point. Billed as “eight of the top food trucks in the country battling for a life-changing $100,000 grand prize, ” they feature everything from Cubano sandwiches to tasty vegan dishes to gourmet grilled cheese! They are popular as heck because they meet an on-the-go, but my-food-should-be-awesome need.
Well here’s another one — A Flower Truck! Launched earlier this year, a clever entrepreneur took her dream and recycled an old ice cream truck into an upscale “roving florist,” offering beautiful cut flowers and plants, offered ‘to-go’ all around LA. I am not only thrilled to see that it’s still “truckin,” but that it continues to make a wonderful product more accessible to more people. Build it and they will come?
Kudos to her and for all of those who take a chance on their dreams… especially ones with such a warm and lovely deliverable at the end. GWH W.T.F. (Winner, Toss-Up or Flop) Award? WINNER! And she should get a bouquet of roses for that.
