BBQ

4 February, 2010: Time for the BBQ. This sandwich is a funny one. We didn’t bring it into the line-up out of the gate. It was the last of the regular sandwiches to hit the street. Rolando was pressing me, “what else, what other sandwiches?” Part of what has worked so well for the two of us is that I’m… Read More

Chickpea fritter nutritionals

1 February, 2010: While we like to think that you all love every sandwich equally, it’s hard to deny that the Chickpea Fritter outsells its brothers. So we thought we’d start here on the detailed sandwich nutritionals. First, the ingredients. You all know our whole wheat pita. We make our own hummus from dried organic chickpeas. For the sandwiches we… Read More

Load balancing

14 December, 2009: So if you’ve been by the truck lately you’ve been taking part in a new experiment. We had this idea: share operational data with customers, make everyone happier. You may not believe me, but I can’t stand people having to wait for our food. We would love to have every single customer served in less than 4… Read More

Sorry, we just ran out of eggplant

22 July, 2009: We take a lot of criticism for running out of food. But that’s OK. Many of you don’t understand why. We LOVE running out. Not because we like turning away customers (we hate that), and not because of some lame deliberate scarcity marketing ploy (we’d never play games like that). We love running out because we’re proud… Read More

2 weeks with salads

4 June, 2009: You’ve asked us about these, tasted them, been confused by our pricing, and sizes, and lack of lettuce, and loved them (beet in particular). Now it’s time to explain what we’re up to with these “salads.” Back when Rolando and I started to imagine this menu there were no soups. At some point we let go and… Read More

Organic coffee “concept”

7 May, 2009: So I’m always checking out food. Everywhere I travel I look for any fast-food oriented concepts. I don’t want to make this blog a review site, so I refrain from posting most of my adventures, but occasionally I’ll use one to shed light on some of our Clover thinking. Today the subject is an organic coffee place… Read More
