Frequently asked questions...

  • is your service right for my event?
    Absolutely! We cater to any type of event or celebration you can dream of...from small intimate gatherings to large celebrations and from private parties to corporate functions, we would love to be a part of your occasion. However, please make sure Sadie, Naveen or Hazel will fit in the space and access to a minimum of a 20 amp outlet is accessible within 100 feet of the proposed set up space. If you are unsure, we will meet and discuss placement prior to paying your retainer.
  • tell me about sadie
    Sadie is not your average food truck. She is a brand new, 13 ft long x 7 ft wide vintage-style trailer and is towed with a SUV. She will need room to turn around as opposed to being backed or pulled in to a narrow area. Sadie does not have front and back tires, but two tires in the middle instead. Therefore, she cannot drive over rough terrain, through potholes, large areas of standing water, snow, or muddy grass. She is also unable to drive over curbs or any incline greater than 2 inches. Sadie is also meant for events 3 hours or longer. Please keep this in mind when booking your event.
