What a year it has been! Like everyone and every business, we have had to adjust to the challenges of the year! We adjusted by offering online and app ordering using the NOMAD food truck app to help make things easier for customers.
Another change is that we ceased the Bowled Up food truck operations, closed the Wild West Eatz operations with the closure of the Wild West bar and nightclub, and opened a restaurant in Richmond, The Parish Bistro. We worked diligently to develop the right menu and atmosphere to bring to this great location. Stop by for a great menu of Cajun, Creole, and Low Country fare!
The big purple truck is continuing to roll throughout the Houston area serving up the great Eatz! Need to book us for your location or a private event? Contact us here.
The first three years of operation went by fast! We spent 2018 recovering, like many in the Houston area, from Harvey. We added staff, we acquired Bowled Up. We spent a lot of time getting Bowled Up into the OffBeat Eatz operations, menu, and branding. We’re pleased at the response to Bowled Up’s fresh new menu and look.
For 2019, we have been just as busy, focusing on our OffBeat Eatz operations, revamping the menu a bit and bringing back our pizzas. Our notable feat was revamping the crew that operates OffBeat Eatz on a daily basis. You’ve probably noticed and tasted the changes. The single most important change was adding Chef Justin Faulkner to our staff. He’s glad to be working along with Chef Gerald Warner to revamp our menu and operations. You’ll see some menu specials that Chef Justin has created.
What else will you see? Who knows! Some of the things you may have noticed: online ordering for pickup is now available; new menu items and specials. We’re thankful for your support and look forward to seeing you on the streets!
The weather is turning fair and the days are growing longer. A bit of change is in the air as we transition from winter to spring, though in Houston, we really don’t have much of a winter.
As it’s a time for change, we have been reviewing our plans with the big purple truck and the future of our operations.
Do we divide and conquer, adding a second truck?
Do we establish a brick and mortar location?
What do we do to build our customer base?
After a bit of thought, both options proved to be challenging. Finding the right truck to build out the fleet is a great possibility. Establishing a brick and mortar proved to be extremely challenging, so we’ll wait for the right place.
So what do we do now that we’re starting our third year of operations?
Inquiring minds want to know!
We decided to get a second truck, though not to expand our OffBeat offerings. We are pleased to announce that we have acquired the Bowled Up operations which will complement the big purple truck operations. The Bowled Up menu will be fresh and new, featuring Asian fusion bowls, plus a few more surprises as we ramp up the operations.
