MEDFORD, Ore -- 35 days ago, Governor Kate Brown issued the stay-at-home order for Oregon. Businesses needed to decide if they would stay open or close during this order.
One business decided to expand during this pandemic; by opening a food truck. "We just needed to get back to business truthfully." said Shawna Williams. One of the owners of Truffle Pig Craft Kitchen. "It was really awkward time for us to get started with the food truck." said Skylar Golden. He is the other owner of Truffle Pig Craft Kitchen.
Golden and Williams are siblings. Their business has been known as a catering company. They bought a food trailer in February. They were planning on opening at some point this spring or summer, but that quickly turned to as soon as possible. "All of our business kind of fell through and so we kind of just had to throw it together as quickly as possible." said Golden. All of their catering plans for this summer are canceled. Fear drove them to make a successful open. "We think it's a great way to still be able to offer food, because we do have a food trailer. People can safely come up, get some food and take it home." said Williams.
Plus they parked their food truck in a great spot. It's in the parking lot of Fry Family Farm. "It's great,because people can get lunch, do some shopping and buy some plant starts." said Golden. "There's no door handles to open. I try to open everything, touch everything and sanitize in between." said Williams
Each week, local and organic products sway the menu. Some of the ingredients come from the Fry Family Farm.
