For those last few months, Shoppers Value Foods business has been down. However, its old parking space is engaged on Thursdays. Customers form a long queue beside the little white truck to purchase their favorite food, the tenderloins. Located in Peru, the pork tenderloin food automobile just began its second year in the previous Shoppers Value parking space. According to Dustin Marks, business is growing satisfactorily. Paul Hayes, one of the customers, says the various spices do not taste as the customary tenderloin. Some clients like the breading while others love the crunch combination and moistness.
How the Schleppy’s Started
Schleppy’s owner, Cindy Schleppenbach, together with her husband, Mark, had discussed having a food automobile for years. According to her spouse, Cindy has always prepared tasty and tender tenderloins. Both decided to open a business in April 2018 after seeing a food car for sale. They came across it on the side of a road and decided to purchase it as it was cheap. Afterwards, they fixed and painted it, and then installed windows as it did not have even one. The van is open two hours from 11 a.m. and another four hours 4 p.m. every Thursday. Cindy closes it at 8 p.m. since she has a busy schedule. Her other responsibilities include t-ball coaching and looking after her five kids.
The Number of Customers Continues Expanding
News about the food truck has spread thanks to the dominant media presence and word of mouth widely. Customers travel from as far as Logansport, Kokomo, and Wabash. The loins are purchased locally, hand baked the day they’re distributed and never frozen. Mark confesses that the recipe for the food is Cindy’s secret, and he’s not aware of the ingredients. Other than the loin, Schleppy’s also serves breaded mushrooms, French fries, mozzarella sticks, and chips.
