Our first week... trial by fire

Our official first day of operations in the truck was incredible.  It's one thing to open a business on an ordinary day with a usual amount of traffic, it's a totally different experience to open at a huge festival with tens of thousands of people coming for one thing- to eat food from trucks and carts of all kinds.
We did a test run earlier in the week to make sure everything was working and running properly.  Good thing we, because the oven wasn't working! Fortunately it was just a safety valve that had to be reaplced.  Below are a few pics from our test run and our first day at the Columbus Food Truck & Cart Festival:
 A few little monkeys hanging out in the monkey truck:
We finally managed to get the oven going and made a few pizzas:

A Huge turnout to this event!  We sold out and had to close temporarily to restock.  
We had soo much fun.  And we learned a LOT from this experience.  We still have a few more tweaks and a new paint job before she is totally complete.
