Selling water at Clover

5 July, 2017: People have been asking to buy bottles of water since 2008 when I opened the first truck. Those first weeks in October 2008 we had 1 sandwich. No sides. No drinks.

Clover gift cards

13 April, 2010: As some of you know we haven’t gotten our gift card thing down, and I’ve been turning down requests.

We’d rather spend money on your food.… Read More

Season’s last strawberries

28 June, 2010: Clover’s staff went strawberry picking yesterday. I have an idea that someday Clover will be an educational environment for employees, where they not only learn how to make perfect French fries but learn about food systems.
