What prompted you to start a food truck?
I had been laid off from work and was struggling to find employment, Then COVID-19 hit. After interviewing for what was basically my dream job and thinking that I had the job, I did not get it.
I have found that no one wants to hire someone my age for three reasons, It is cheaper to hire a younger person because of health insurance, they “assume” my starting wage will be too high because of my experience, and because I do not have a college degree.
After that I decided it was time to make my own money. I went looking for businesses to start up and landed with Frios Gourmet Pops and another dessert company that has been around awhile. My wife and I went to a Frios Pops store in Keller and tasted the product, at which point my wife stated “go for it.”
