Clementine’s first day of work

22 July, 2022: In some ways Clementine is responsible for Clover. Back in 2007 I wasn't proud of the job I was doing. I was good at it and I enjoyed it but I knew I wasn't making the world a better place. When I looked down at my toddler after flying around the country I knew I needed to… Read More

Salad Mondays!

22 July, 2022: We sent out a little survey to 1000 of our weekly box customers, asking what meal boxes you wanted us to make next… and Salad Monday was our most requested one (even beating out pizza.) So we got to work on greens - figuring out sourcing, making sure we could get them pre-washed, figuring out pairings and… Read More

Meet the COO

12 July, 2022: Hi, my name’s Julia Wrin Piper. I was given two last names at birth, which is a nightmare for both Google and the federal government. So if you try to find my digital footprint, you’ll discover that, aside from some unfortunate early professional candids, I’m disturbingly absent from all the usual places. But, I assure you, I… Read More

Explanation/ update

30 July, 2009: Hey everybody. After 1 missed breakfast, and one late breakfast this past week I feel I owe you all a short explanation. Oh, and this has something to do with the dearth of posts in the past few weeks. We're been working on the next steps for the truck. Don't worry, we're not going anywhere. But we… Read More

Why Pizza?

7 July, 2022: Pizza Friday is live. You can sign up. $35/ week and we deliver everything you need to make the best pizza you've ever had at your home. I eat pizza everywhere and love it. When I was in college I made a game for myself where I wouldn't walk by a pizza joint without buying a slice.… Read More

The Panelle is back!

5 July, 2022: Il Panelle è tornato a pranzo! I considered writing this whole blog in Italian but I'll spare you (and myself) the trouble. Anyway, our Sicilian inspired sandwich is back, as of June 29. It'll be around for as long as fennel is at its peak. We had no idea what the word Panelle meant when a customer… Read More

Fourth of July hours

3 July, 2022: If you find yourself in need of some Clover tomorrow, here are our restaurant hours for Monday, July 4th. What's the photo all about? There's a Flag Cake kit inside our most recent 4th of July meal box. If you're one of the 100+ folks who managed to snag a box, you'll be whipping cream and adding… Read More

July 2022 Price Changes

1 July, 2022: Sometimes transparency is a bit painful. I have a history of posting when we change Clover's prices (whether up or down). I'd rather not be raising prices. I know you'd rather I wasn't raising prices. But here we are, 2022. This change was prompted by a wonderful backer of Clover who asked me about our prices. We… Read More

4:00pm means snack time

6 July, 2010: When we first experimented with dinner last November we stumbled upon a fun Clover tradition. Chris Anderson had a crate of plantains. He said: here, fry these up. We found that since dinners are more peaceful and spread out, we actually had room in the fryer and time to play around. Some of you remember those plantains.… Read More

The Enzo is back, or Warning: This Sandwich May Contain French Fries

20 June, 2022: For one more week (end date: Tuesday June 28), we’re bringing back a Clover fan favorite: The Enzo sandwich. The Enzo—which takes its name and inspiration from Clover alum Vincenzo— features thick slices of eggplant fried to perfection, a house-made roasted pepper relish, kosher provolone cheese, and Clover french fries. It’s unique among our sandwiches in featuring… Read More

Tech to support omnichannel

17 June, 2022: Jane, Chris, and Phil talking through some changes to the subscription program (that need new tech solutions) What's happening on the tech front? For those unaware Clover has been building our own tech since the first food truck (2009). We run our own order management system, Point of sale, Kitchen display system, and more. We have amazing… Read More

Time Machine

16 June, 2022: That might not look like much but that machine is stepping Clover a few years back in time (at least for the next week or so). It's our Rational oven and the water tank leaked which destroyed the circuit board and it's going to take a couple days to get it back up and running. That means… Read More

Father’s Day Gift Guide

10 June, 2022: Lucia here, writing to share some of our favorite Father's Day gifts. If you end up using any of these suggestions, drop us a line, we'd love to know.  First up, our Father’s Day Meal Box! This came from a group of Clover dads who asked themselves: if I had my ideal day of meals, what would it be?… Read More

Rhubarb coming in subscription boxes next week!

10 June, 2022: Sweet and puckery, with a form factor so unlike other fruit... Yess, it's rhubarb season! It’s Ayr’s favorite thing to eat, it’s a vegetable that acts like a fruit, it makes pancakes so happy, and it’s only here for a month or so. If you’ve been thinking about stocking your fridge with a Clover meal box, this might be the week… Read More
