City Runs Dessert Truck Off the Road

The beloved Dessert Truck writes in to share a letter it has posted on its website, explaining that for the time being, it will no longer be allowed to sell its chocolate bread pudding with bacon crème anglaise (or anything else, for that matter) to the general public. We’re fishing for more details, but for now, here’s the letter.


We can’t open! Yesterday, the city notified us that the mobile food vendor’s permit used by DessertTruck is no longer valid. For reasons too confusing and vague for us to understand, the city denied the permit holder the right to renew his permit. What does this mean? We can’t sell on the street to passersby. It does NOT mean we are out of business—we will continue to cater private events and find a way to open to the public again.

Thank you in advance to all our awesome customers who patiently await our return in one form or another. And a big thank you to our crew, present and past for supporting us - Bill, Colin, Craig, Grace, Jenica, Kevin, Lawpo, Luis, Mallory, Susana, Travis& Vincent!
We’ll post updates on our website and Twitter feed as they become available.

A bientot!
