Our 1st write up.

The Oxford Patch stopped by today to see what we are up to. Why would the Oxford Patch come to Derby you may be asking yourself...well Dad is an Oxford resident and has been for nearly 40 years now. He is originally from Derby and that's one reason why he is back in town. Read the story here.

Another video of our truck

So today we shot a little video of the progress of Dads Food Truck so that we can show everyone where we currently are with the overall progress. The truck is looking good on the inside (we're getting there). The next step is to finish that up and then tackle the outside and then the health inspector needs to give us a thumbs up and we are golden!

So here is a little quirky video we whipped up to show you what things look like inside. Enjoy...Also, please help us out and share us with friends and family on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram/Pinterest..etc...What ever social site you prefer we are on. Links below the video. THANK YOU!!! Dad.

Creating the decals for the sides of the truck.

Creating the decals/logo/image is always a challenge. We wanted to share the progression with you so here we go.

Dads Food Truck is getting there.

Day one...the original truck. As you can see its a Snap-On truck that we bought because these things are monsters and durable and easy to convert into practically anything.

Here is the first concept so we had a cover photo for the
Facebook Page

We then put these 2 images out to the audience and asked what changes they would make and which on they liked better. 

Image 1 didn't win the crowd over as much as the one above it so we started to tweak image 2 so that it look more like the suggestions we got.

Right Side

So with a little work we decided on this version you see above. added the other social media channels we will be posting to and then created the other 2 sides of the truck.

Left Side

Back of the Truck

UPDATE 4/16/13
Newest revision of the layout. 

These of course are all Photoshopped and will look clean.  But we feel this is most likely the last revisions before we hit the road.

And yes we are on all 8 of those social channels. Here they are so follow us on the ones you want to and we would love it if you would share us with your friends. 

New Social Media Sites for Dads Food Truck

We are now on Instagram...yes, another social media site! Reason is simple, not everyone uses all of them so we actually need to be everywhere so that each demographic can have a voice.

Also when you are joining us for lunch you can check in to make your friends jealous who "brown bagged" that day. Take a pic of your food to really make them wonder why they are having a boring PB&J!
Facebook Places and Foursquare.
