FOOD: 99¢ Ice Cream Truck
by Patrick DePuydt
99¢ ice cream.
If that doesn’t catch your attention, the colors and design on the truck definitely will.
Yesterday, I was walking on 14th street and Irving and eevverrryyytthhinnggg stopped.
99¢ Ice Cream truck.
Those of us professionals in the frozen dessert consumption industry are often plagued by the fact most dessert trucks don’t take credit cards. I often find myself just shy of the requisite cash for an average street-legal chocolate cone.
With the 99¢ Ice Cream Truck I can now factor maximizing volume and sprinkle density.
When talking to Emil, the truck’s owner, I found out his company owns 4 trucks so far along with some of the Yogo trucks servicing the frozen yogurt consumption industry. He’s expanding as his business is picking up.
Emil informs me Chinatown is a hotspot for his trucks, but they’re making rounds around town in Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan, so be on the look-out for his trucks.
It’ll be the best dollar you’ll spend the entire day.
