Fueled by Fries

I know I promised cupcakes next, but I come bearing hot dogs instead. My friends have started up a food truck business called Snap that serves Chicago hot dogs and avocado fries and other tasty foodstuffs. They spent the last year selling at various food and craft markets in New York, and now they've launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise the last bit of money they need to get their truck on the road. They bought a truck that they are converting to biodiesel so the used frying oil can be used to power their vehicle, in a brilliant form of recycling. They're also using locally sourced ingredients and actually plan to compost their compostable cutlery (that stuff won't just break down in the landfill). So not only is it delicious, it's also responsible and smart business.

If you're in the New York area, consider helping them out! They have another $5,000 to raise by next Monday. Kickstarter pledges come with free hot dogs and other goodies once the truck is running this summer.

  1. How cool is that? I've never had avocado fries. But I'd like to.

  2. Sounds totally cool. Make sure they are advertising the biodiesel use on their truck!
