Cr-ose Cafe on Wheels rolling by bumpy beginning
Electrical shortage brings food truck home for repairs
Many people in the community were pleased to see the Cr-ose Cafe on Wheels food truck set up at the Stumpff’s Event Center, especially after word got out that the dine-in restaurant would not be reopening after the COVID-19 shut down.
After being open at the Event Center, Laveta Crowe, co-owner of Cr-ose Cafe on Wheels, said they had intended to set up at a festival in Oklahoma for the weekend, but when the food truck was hooked up to a power source, an electrical outage fried all of the truck’s equipment.
“My refrigerators, fryers, everything,” she said. “We are in the process of ordering parts and putting it back together now.”
Crowe said the owner of the building she hooked up to for power is covering the cost of all of the new equipment.
“All we have to do is order it and put it back in,” she said. “We are hoping to be back up and running by the end of this week.”
