Friar Tuck 3.0 will look pretty much the same design-wise, although it will be roomier on the inside, with the possible addition of a fryer.
In addition to the Indiegogo, Friar Tuck is holding a fundraiser August 29 from 5 to 11:30 p.m. at Funky Buddha in Oakland Park. Entitled, "Tuck Everlasting", Muise will take over the Crazydilla truck for the evening, serving his famous Tuck Tuck burgers and Jurassic Pork sandwiches. Muise hopes to be able to have the new truck on the road sometime in the fall, in time for his 40th birthday on November 23.
We asked Muise how he can be so damn optimistic about life when his second food truck was just demolished? "I can be upset and defeated. But that's not what I'm passionate about. If life isn't a challenge and an adventure, It's not worth it. I'm going to be 40 this year. I worked in a cubicle all my life. It's hard being a small business owner, but I want a food truck that builds partnerships."
"A year ago I didn't even have customers. Now, I'm getting emails with support. Within 24 hours, we're already over halfway to our goal. It's huge for a small business owner to hear customers support me. It's creating a community. I can't walk away from that. I'm a stubborn prick from Boston."
Being a stubborn prick with a loyal following is exactly what will see Robb Muise through the second rebuilding of Friar Tuck. If you want to help, check out the Friar Tuck Indiegogo page, or follow Muise's progress on his website.
