It was a brisk and sunny late afternoon on March 13, when hundreds of foodies came together in support of Greenville’s food trucks. “We’ve invited our friends Neue and Asada to come park in our lot and serve (while we’re open) as a sign of peaceful protest against the new food truck regulations. We feel they are too restrictive and no one currently involved with the trucks was consulted or asked a single question on the matter.” —The Owl, 728 Wade Hampton Blvd, Greenville, SC.
Greenville News Editorial: Give food trucks a place in city
Food trucks are relatively new to Greenville, but these mobile restaurants have been adding flavor and vibrancy to other cities for years. They could do the same for Greenville if the city can find a reasonable way to let them coexist with existing restaurants.
As Greenville fine-tunes a set of proposed rules for food trucks, it should look for ways to let the Upstate’s small — but, we hope, increasing — number of food trucks operate in harmony with the varied and dynamic downtown restaurant scene. READ FULL STORY on greenvilleonline.com

The Owl restaurant on Wade Hampton is hosting what they describe as the “peaceful protest against the new food truck regulations.” The event was planned after the Greenville City Council made public plans to prevent food trucks from parking within 250 feet of existing restaurants, essentially banning them from the downtown Central Business District.
Hey everybody! We’re BACK! Finally! It’s hard to believe it’s been nearly 2 months since we’ve last served the fine (and hungry) people of Greenville. Our trip abroad helped us to accomplish what we’d hoped – we have been newly inspired to challenge ourselves as chefs and introduce you to unique flavors from world cuisines. We were reminded that our job is to provide you with the very best food possible without making a reservation. So, it is with great pride that we introduce our latest menu.
The original mobile food? In Bangkok, Thailand we saw these boats everywhere!
I will go out on a limb and say most of the food truck app developers out there have never worked on a food truck. Well this one has. I spent my last day in Greenville, SC helping out the Neue Southern gang, Graham, Lauren and Jeff. While I didn’t do most of the heavy lifting I did gain a lot of knowledge spending the day with them.
The reason I asked to help out was so I could see what types of things cause a food truck owner/operator headaches during a normal business day. How do you handle and process the orders, the line of people waiting, a faulty fryer, a windy and rainy day and so on. But I also wanted to see the little things that are not so obvious to a casual observer.
TruckyLove CEO working the truck
Since we are building this food truck app and web community I wanted to see how the owners managed their marketing efforts, food orders (organizing them, prioritizing them and managing the waves of orders) and payment processing. Also I wanted to watch the customers to see how they responded to everything the truck workers were doing from how the food is packaged, their feelings at closing time and whether or not they had a positive experience locating the truck – especially without having an app to show them where they are.
I won’t get into every observation here but just a few: >>READ FULL ARTICLE on TRUCKYLOVE
Meals on Wheels of Greenville will celebrate their 10 Millionth meal served this October! An awesome feat for this non-profit organization. Without the help of their 140+ volunteers, they wouldn’t be able to service all of Greenville county. So, it is our humble pleasure to be able to serve those who give of themselves so selflessly.
Here are a few things you can do to help!
Meals on Wheels is on a mission to collect 10,000,000 pennies in honor of this milestone.
Have some pennies you want to get rid of? We’ll be collecting them at the truck. We’re calling for all of your pennies! Our biggest donors will receive an unprofessional, awkward iPhone picture taken of you to be posted on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and our website. We pay credit where credit is due! PLUS, we’ll give you a cookie of your choosing on us!
They also collect dog and cat food for the pets of those they service, and if you’d like to donate some, we’ll deliver it to their offices for you!
Thank you Greenville! Doesn’t it feel good to give back?

Tempting European/Southern fare coming soon! Pronounced “Noy-a” Southern (it means new!). Bringing you Greenville’s first mobile gourmet food truck. Opening August 2012!
So, we were going to wait, but just couldn’t resist. B2B Media’s first mock-up of our truck!
We would never have gotten this far had it not been for our very dear friend and extraordinarily talented graphic designer, Matt Accetta! (Fellas, he works at Sports Illustrated in NYC, and yes, he had a hand in the Swimsuit Issue). He designed the boar’s head that you’ll soon see EVERYWHERE!
We’re so excited to be surrounded by such phenomenal talent and vision! Stay tuned for more!
Graham’s putting the potato salad together! Oh, and yes, there is bacon in this as well. We’ll be making our own bacon with Heritage Farms pork belly! Deep-fried brussel sprouts (might be the best application for this member of the brassica family…) tossed in an apple cider vinegar gastrique!
So much more to come. Talk to us on Facebook.
