Vincenzo is our new listman. I think he’s going to write about this soon in more detail.
You wouldn’t believe how different it is to operate 2 trucks vs. 1. Wouldn’t seem that different, but it is. Add to that the growth of both trucks, and we’re talking about a 4-fold increase in customers served this July vs. July last year. That means more dishes, more smallwares, more food, more employees, more of everything. We live by lists these days.
We’ve all been spending a lot of our time lately on operations. And it’s not about making these 2 trucks work. It’s about setting Clover up with the systems we’ll need to support many trucks. That’s right, if you haven’t noticed yet we’re ambitious.
Hat, one of our favorite employees from last summer, came back to work 2 weeks ago. I asked her yesterday what she noticed today vs. last summer. Her answer: “It’s soo much easier.” While the current crew would have trouble believing that, it’s true. And great to hear. We’ve been working hard to make everybody’s jobs easier. Still a long way to go, but we’re making great progress.
