Start a Food Truck build.
ETR’s food trucks are in a class of their own.
When we start a food truck build we first start with a comprehensive understanding of our client’s concept, goals and personality. These 3 major factors determine how we approach the design of the concession truck. We at ETR feel the personality of our clients must be represented in the details of their food truck and we take painstaking measures to insure that they do. Food trucks are like fingerprints and no two are exactly alike. Here at ETR we insure that your mobile kitchen or concession vehicle is just that, a unique representation of your Brand and concept. We are continuously driving our industry by incorporating the latest technologies, tried and true applications and eye grabbing aesthetic flare. Now you know what we do let’s talk about how we do it.
This is unarguably the most important component in building a quality food truck. The truck is the basis of the build and must be big enough to fit the desired food trucks equipment, strong enough to safely handle the weight of the kitchen and sound enough to get you to and from your locations without the worry of mechanical defects or failures. That’s why we at ETR will only supply new or newer year vehicles. We make sure the mechanics are sound and that the truck is in the best condition possible. We also warranty our used vehicles for 1 year so you can operate without the burden of dealing with a failed vehicle.
Client Supplied Vehicles:
We here at ETR know that budgetary concerns are always an issue not only with our start up clients but with all clients in general. That’s why we are willing to work on vehicles that our client supplies to us. These custom designs are designed around the features of the supplied vehicle. Of course a quick food truck consultation with us before you purchase a vehicle is advantageous. This way we can figure what the best size and GVW for your food truck build will be. If you already own the vehicle then we will make sure to design the interior to work for your concept. ETR does not warranty your supplied vehicles but can do mechanical repairs and enhancements to your vehicle which are backed by our warranty.

Legal battle ensues for food truck name.
This case could make it federal court.
The couple that owns the Wandering Dago, a Schenectady-based food truck that was abruptly banned from Saratoga Race Course on opening day last month, is suing the New York Racing Association and New York’s Office of General Services. All told, Brandon Snooks and Andrea Loguidice are looking for $343,000 to make up for lost business at the racing venue and also at Empire State Plaza, where Wandering Dago was denied a permit to vend earlier this year. That’s in addition to punitive damages, attorney’s fees, and an injunction designed to prevent future bans.
Now that the case may be headed to federal court, the truck’s owners say the name wasn’t meant to invoke the ethnic slur, because, you know, they both have Italian roots. Instead, the Wandering Dago name proudly pays “tribute to the hard-working Italian-Americans of previous generations who toiled as day laborers,” the Times Union notes, which likely also explains the rationale for sandwiches named “the Polack” and “Mick and Cheese” on the menu board. “We live in a society with robust speech,” Loguidice and Snooks’s lawyer says, “and you’re going down a slippery slope when you allow public officials to say, ‘I’m going to ban this because a certain segment of society finds it offensive.’”
This is an interesting case. A food truck being denied permits because of an offensive name. I’m not Italian so I don’t know how that makes people feel. Being Irish I don’t mind the word Mick but I’m not a person who gets offended easily.
