WHY DID YOU START A FOOD TRUCK?
The idea of starting fresh is such a unique concept. Sometimes we look to the future and tell ourselves, "When the time is right... That's when I will live my dream." For our family, the time to "live our dream" is now. We are native Californians who decided that it was time for a change for our family. We were striving for a fresh start and in Spring Hill, Tennessee we settled. Our formative years have been spent in public service. Adam, a retired Sergeant from the Long Beach Police Department in CA; and Kristi, a primary school teacher (both in the classroom and online) were brought up on a strong work ethic and service to others.We spent a lot of time looking for our place in the world and we realized that it was not to remain in Southern CA. We moved to Tennessee in the summer of 2022 and although we found our town, we continued to look for how we were going to live our new life.After a lot of prayer, hard work, and family support, White Shepherd Coffee was born. It is our goal is to bring about memories, meeting new people each day, finding time to gather and share our lives with one-another, and to serve our community in this new, exciting way.Grabbing a cup of coffee with a friend has always been one of our favorite things to do and we want our coffee to create memories for you too! We have invested our time to make your experience with White Shepherd Coffee something to look forward to again and again.White Shepherd Coffee is not only a Mobile Coffee Trailer, but an idea. The idea of starting fresh daily and knowing that each day is a gift. Let us share our lives with you and we would love to get to know you over a cup of delicious coffee.It is our goal to continue to grow our community relationships and have developed some great community partnerships with local ministries and non-profit organizations. These relationships have given us the opportunity to give back in ways we could only have imagined before. We will strive to make each day count, and we wish you the best each day, from our family to yours.
WHAT'S ON YOUR FOOD TRUCK MENU? WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THIS CUISINE?
We have a variety of coffee beverages, including some of the fan favorites. Our specialties are our signature drinks (The White Shepherd and The German Shepherd). These two espresso based drinks are very tasty. We also have a variety of pastries, some of which come from local bakers in our area. We serve both breakfast and lunch sandwiches that have been super popular :) We love breakfast and providing this to our customers is our favorite.
WHAT'S THE BEST PART OF BEING A FOOD TRUCK OPERATOR?
We love the ability to be mobile and meet new people all over our area. We have been able to be apart of some really cool events and as we continue to grow, we love building relationships in our community.
WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION BEHIND YOUR TRUCK/MENU?
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH JOULE CASE AND YOUR NEW BATTERY SYSTEM?
We have been using the system for approximately a month. The system we have is four batteries and three 6kw inverters. The system will power our trailer for approximately four hours while running our machines constantly. The power is constant and peaceful.
