When food trucks first hit the street, many of the culinary entrepreneurs saw the endgame as opening a brick & mortar restaurant. Krush Burger, Drewski's Hot Rod Kitchen, Wicked Wich and Coast to Coast Sandwiches have all successfully made that jump.
But when restaurants saw that there was money to be made in mobile food, they went the other way and started opening food trucks of their own. Examples of that are Chando's Tacos, Squeeze Inn, Mama Kim Eats, etc.
Now, we have another restaurant throwing their hat into the food truck scene - Streets of London, reports Chris Macias in the Sac Bee.
A new addition to Sacramento's fleet of food trucks is expected to start rolling by late-July. Look for the Big Red Bus, a food truck fashioned like a double-decker bus to be run by Streets of London. The popular English-style pub with midtown and West Sacramento locations will feature a menu of fish 'n' chips, plus "global burritos" with fillings that reference Italian and Indian cooking and an English breakfast burrito. Kabobs are also expected to be included among the Big Red Bus' offerings.
The final design touches are being applied to the Big Red Bus, which is nicknamed "Jeeves," like a classic English butler.
