While driving Cab and also big trucks I realized there was a real shortage of good healthy food available for us drivers that work at night or I should say a shortage of good healthy fast food. That was about the time when I came up with the idea of starting my own healthy hamburger stand. I would call my hamburger stand business Omburger and serve mostly vegetarian fare that is nutritious and tastes good instead of contributing to the slow onslaught of obesity and diabetes that traditional american fast food seems to promote and would be healthy too! Enter the Omburger.
First I thought I would find a location and start a brick and mortar hamburger stand. But I soon realized that this would be a very expensive proposition, so I decided to look into buying a food truck as a way to make my restaurateur dreams come true. It wasn't long before I found what I thought was the perfect food truck. Notice the very creative flower over the cab! The flower is a torch and can shoot flames at night for a fliery advertisement.
Here is a photo of the interior of my very artistic "Om-Mobile" It even has hot water on demand. How cool is that!?
Now, while I thought the Om-mobile was very cool and sheik and the perfect thing for my healthy fast food business. The folks in Washington State where I live namely the Washington Health Dept and Labor and Industries said "Hey not so fast there you wanna be food truck maven. "Here in Washington State we have a lot more hoops that need jumped through than the folks in Oregon do. You are going to have to make a lot of improvements to your food truck in order to cook in it." (like the doors are a little too narrow and you have to have a fancy diagram and a commercial grease sucking vent thing a mabob that sticks out the top and stainless steel this and that and on and on and on. Thus my very substantial investment in a food truck became a much larger investment.
So, thank goodness I have a huge pile of money laying around for just this reason. Not!!!. O.k. I have a very rich uncle that wants to throw cash my way. Yeah right. O.k. well one thing I do have is a CDL and I know how to haul cars which pays pretty good. So I've gone back to trucking in a large part in order to save my money so I can accomplish my dream of starting a healthy food truck restaurant. So wish me luck and I will keep you posted on how my food truck adventures work out. Have a fabulous night.
Been trucking since 96. My main interest is having a good healthy life.
