Richmond, Kentucky (LEX 18) — Many companies may be struggling during COVID-19, but local food trucks seem to be thriving.
LEX 18 talked to Amy Bingham, the owner of a Richmond food truck. She started her business in August. Starting a business during a pandemic may sound a little scary, but she says it’s sold out almost every night.
“I was really surprised that many neighborhoods reached out and said they would be set up. I think that’s why it’s working so well because the family came in and ordered and it moves so fast. It’s scary, but I think it really helped. “
Neighborhoods like Cindy Hall are inviting trucks. She says she has asked her new food trucks to come out every weekend since April, providing her neighbors with a way to interact from a safe distance.
“Since I met the person who has been moved to the neighborhood that have not yet met, it was a lot of fun. People that we know is, while maintaining the distance to say hello, to see what everyone has been how to It’s really great to do that, “Hall explained.
She also says she gave her the opportunity to help a local business that might be struggling by offering some business in the evening.
“When people talk about thinking outside the box, you really have to be creative. Now it’s throwing away the box, you know you have to burn the box You have to think really differently and decide how to create more business in a safe way. “
What Cindy likes most about trucks is that not only can he eat outside the house, but he also has the additional bonus of not having to cook or cook.
