... our lives have been completely taken over and we absolutely love it!
The last 3 months has seen Pizza Wagon grow at a rate that we could only have dreamed of. Everybody we've met has been so positive about the pizza and the wagon and we've had so many wonderful opportunities to get Pizza Wagon out in to the public domain.
We are in 'Yes' mode, we say yes to everything that comes our way. If we breakeven we're happy as long as more people have seen us and tried our pizza. It's been quiet an adventure!
We've had the van nearly break down on us on the way to a running event with the lovely folks at Start to Finish. Zak's wonderful father drove hours out of his way on a Saturday to come rescue us and help us get the job done, which we did and we're looking forward to more running events next summer, especially one at Melbourne zoo!
We're now regulars at the wonderful Moon Dog Brewery and Kooinda Boutique Brewery both run by awesome people full of passion.
We attended the fantastic 'Suus' business launch at Kustom Kommune and hope very much to work with Kustom Kommune at an event there holding later this year.
In a couple of weeks we'll be attending our first 3 day event at Rod Stock and Custom in Bendigo. So there's lots of dough to be rolled, Parmesan to be grated and basil to be picked!
The best news of all is that last week we obtained our first official street permit so we can now work when ever we want. It's for Maribyrnong council who seem to be the only council who make it easy for food trucks. We had our first day at food truck hot spot Yarraville Gardens last Sunday and we sold out! It was so great to meet some of the other food trucks and talk about food truck highs and lows. We had a delicious Mexican Mushroom Burger from 'The Little Mushroom co' - highly recommmended! We'll be back there serving pizza this weekend.
Our pizzas are looking and tasting better than ever. I've really got the knack of hand stretching the dough which makes for an awesome crust.
So basically we're happy and pushing forward, all the drama and waiting of the last couple of years was utterly worth it. Next for us is applying for all the big summer festivals which as festival lovers ourselves we can't wait for. We have bookings up until April next year so it looks like we'll be busy for a long time to come.
