Wall of cambros, wall of people

26 March, 2011: You get two pictures this time. The food summit at Northeastern was our biggest event, almost like summers at DWY but all at once. We pulled up 2 trucks, the plan was to send 50 customers at a time to each truck, but that failed and everyone came at the same time. The MIT truck (parked on… Read More

Sweet headlamp

24 March, 2011: When filling generator gas at night, it can be tricky without looking at the gauge that stops the fuel from overflowing. I was training Joy (who’s just been promoted to assistant manager) and I told her to bring a flashlight so she could see the gauge. The next day she brought this hiking head light, genius. Wondering… Read More

Temporary Office

16 March, 2011: The other day Ayr said “everyone should be able to travel with their office in a bag, this way we can have meetings anywhere.” I’m not sure I know exactly what he means by that, but maybe he’ll elaborate in a future post. The other day Ayr put this practice to action. The office was cleaned out… Read More

$0.50 turns into $920

15 March, 2011: Nothing lasts forever. But this door could have lasted longer than 2 years if we’d just replaced a few screws. Too late now. Instead we paid a guy from Mass Restaurant Supply $150 to take 5 minutes to tell us this. Then we paid another $770 for a new door (no thanks Mass Restaurant on the $1,300… Read More

Oil Spill

14 March, 2011: Not everybody at Clover gets to change fryer oil. But we change them out twice a week. It’s a job I used to avoid, but I’ve come to take some pride in a super clean fryer, and gotten good enough to train others. Then there are these days. Here is Chris, it was the end of a… Read More

Coffee soda?

9 March, 2011: Enzo here. I love coffee and I love soda. The other day  I came up with the idea of a coffee syrup for soda. I steeped ground coffee with sugar, strained 3 times, and served with carbonated water and cream. Lucia said this reminded her of an egg cream. Some people are making faces. Is this genius… Read More

Truck #3

15 February, 2011: Here it is folks, truck #3. That’s Troy, he drove 16 hrs from Indiana, and after all that, look how clean the truck arrived, awesome. Meg & I (and Bella, our Boston terrier) drove an hour southwest of Boston to meet Troy. Once the truck pulled up I couldn’t wait to give it a spin, it drove… Read More

Melting Roof

7 February, 2011: After all this snow, the roof of the MIT truck has collected it all and it froze over. Friday we got sunshine, the roof started to melt and drip right on to our counter top. We moved the spoons, napkins and hot sauce that we keep on the counter. The problem continued all through lunch but it was way too… Read More

Snowday Snowball Cookies

7 February, 2011: Can you believe the snow last week? The last time I remember New England got this much snow was 8 years ago, I was a sophomore at JWU and school was closed for 2 days. When we decided that the trucks were going to be closed Wednesday, we decided to have a little snow day at Harvard.… Read More

John Lee’s knee

1 February, 2011: This is John Lee’s knee. I’m sure Ayr will write a real introduction to John soon (with an actual picture). He came on board this fall to help out with our finances. We’re running him through all of Clover’s day-to-day operations. Last week he was working resupply. We’re talking packing up the resupply van, driving it out to… Read More
