The Big Cheese, DC and VA Food Truck


Recommended Posts

My brother and I were going to the El Bandido food truck in Ballston last week, and we saw this new food truck.

The guy said he hadn't gone public on twitter yet, as he was still perfecting the process. It's pretty much a gourmet grilled cheese food truck, with the cheeses coming from cow girl creamery. You get a pickle with the sandwich, and there is also tomato soup available.

We waited for a while but it was just him in the truck and orders were taking about 15 minutes each, so we didn't stick around.

It seems interesting, but the pricing is a bit aggressive at $6.50 for a grilled cheese.

His twitter is up now:

So, by your estimate, 4 orders take an hour to process? I guess there's some overlap so he does get more than 4 orders out in an hour's time.

It's a nice comfort food concept, esp. at this time of year. Some streamlining of the process may be in order.

I'm hoping he hires a helper.

Next up in Arlington; a Gourmet PB&J truck with fresh-blended peanut butter and artisanal jellies! Early summer we expect to see a dessert truck serving S'mores made with artisanal chocolate, homemade marshmallows, and graham crackers imported from France!

Patrick is a great guy with years of industry experience. I envy his gumption to go it alone. He is figuring things out as he goes (e.g. I know he's looking for help) and may find Arlington to be a narrow demographic, but as I watch this segment of the industry get more and more attention in D.C and beyond, if he figures it out, there is no reason it can't be a home run.
