Wicked Waffles Closing, Free Food, Openings

Wicked Waffles

Today, we learn that Wicked Waffles will be closing the cart and selling it at the end of October. Matthew emailed me that they are looking to expand into something larger, maybe even a restaurant. If you haven't seen it, the Wicked Waffles vintage trailer is really a work of art - fully restored. They even have a prime corner spot at North Station. This news comes on the heels last week that Lovin' Spoonful's truck on SW 2nd and Oak is up for sale as they move on to starting a restaurant in Lincoln City. Additionally, we learned that Valhalla has their cute little trailer for sale. Plenty of opportunity for someone who wants to start a cart. __________

BING! is giving away free cart food on Wednesday, Oct. 13 to promote their BING! Food Cart map. An all day event, they will utilize the map to announce where the free food will be at. Sounds like a fun game. Check out the BING! community blog for more information.
