hello arepa http://www.helloarepa.com A tropical comfort food truck, in Rochester, NY Tue, 15 Jul 2014 21:00:00 +0000 en-US hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.4.10 Done hibernating http://www.helloarepa.com/2013/03/26/done-hibernating/ Tue, 26 Mar 2013 19:49:36 +0000 http://www.helloarepa.com/?p=185 We are excited about starting the 2013 arepa season!

After months of hibernating, we’ve dusted the truck off, changed the oil, ordered provisions and are getting ready to roll.

We’ll be back at the Object Maker’s Lot, this Saturday from 10 am to 2 pm. Come for brunch and to say hi. We’ve missed you!

Arepa Countdown! http://www.helloarepa.com/2012/09/06/arepa-countdown/ Thu, 06 Sep 2012 14:48:42 +0000 http://www.helloarepa.com/?p=90

Hello Arepa followers! It has been a long, exciting, nerve-racking and patience-trying two months, but we’re finally getting close.
Two weeks from today (September 20th), Hello Arepa will be ready to roll. Our plan is to do a “soft launch” that week, just a few small events (times and location TBA). We’ll then jump head-first into culinary madness that is the Food Truck Rodeo.
From now on, you can expect regular fb, twitter and blog updates, as things will be happening fast and furious for the next few weeks.
See you all SOON!!

I have a truck http://www.helloarepa.com/2012/07/09/i-have-a-truck/ Mon, 09 Jul 2012 23:18:02 +0000 http://www.helloarepa.com/?p=64 OK, things will really start to speed up now. I just bought a truck. Holy crap, I just bought a truck. It’s a bit bigger than I’d planned on, which is not a bad thing. I’ll actually have a little breathing room in there and will be able to expand if need be. Also, it was cheap. So, I’ll be able to spend some money on the mechanics and still be in a good spot when I start buying equipment for it.

Wow. I just bought a truck!!

No Dice http://www.helloarepa.com/2012/07/06/no-dice/ Sat, 07 Jul 2012 00:01:05 +0000 http://www.helloarepa.com/?p=62 After several delays, my offer was turned down. He couldn’t get the generator running, but still decided to counter with a much higher offer than mine. Too high for me. I had to walk.

This is a bit of a set-back. Time to return to the truck search.
