San Diego Food Trucks did an interview with Kevin from MIHO Gastrotruck that I think is very informative about what’s going on in the food truck “scene” right now.
Kevin: The most rewarding aspect is developing a sense of community at each of our locations. Our customers, or HOMI’s as we like to call them, are mostly regulars that come on a weekly basis. We really enjoy getting to know them and giving them something to be proud of in their “work” community – a lot like the sense of belonging and attachment you have with your local bar or favorite restaurant. The Cheers theme song got it right – sometimes you wanna go where everybody knows your name, and they’re always glad you came.
Andrew (the significant other) and I head to MIHO every Friday for HOMI Hour at Whistle Stop. I usually go crazy for their veggie taco, when they have it. Andrew gets the burger every time. And I agree, it’s nice to go somewhere and have them recognize you and smile!
