Cindee & Anabel
WHY DID YOU START A FOOD TRUCK?
We got started because we saw an opportunity up in the foothills where I reside. There’s a big tech company and no food options near by. We got into it about a year ago and it took off.
WHAT'S ON YOUR FOOD TRUCK MENU? WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS CUISINE?
Tacos, burritos, tortas, quesabirria, carne asada fries
WHAT'S THE BEST PART OF BEING A FOOD TRUCK OPERATOR?
We’ve fallen in love with the Seattle area and the people of the Northwest, and we love sharing our family’s special recipes with our customers.
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH JOULE CASE AND YOUR NEW BATTERY SYSTEM?
It’s clean, it doesn’t make any noise, and we always have power. We’re now saving around $1000 per festival or fair by not having to plug in for power. Not to mention most events in Seattle don’t allow generators. Within one of year of the business, the system has paid for itself.
WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION BEHIND YOUR TRUCK/MENU?
The truck is named in honor of Isidro, the husband of Anabel, the chef and operator. It’s a family business with everyone chipping in.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO ANOTHER FOOD TRUCK OWNER/OPERATOR?
Take a look at what you’re paying for your generator. They’re not cheap and they’re heavy to hall around. If you look at the cost analysis, it makes sense to switch to battery power.
WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE TO USE JOULE CASE AND A BATTERY SYSTEM TO POWER YOUR OPERATION?
We purchased the truck in Texas and discovered in Washington there are bunch of rules you have to follow. In our research and in working with a fabricator, he recommended Joule Case.
