Yellow Cab food truck rallies convert to carryout and pizza, lobster rolls and croquettes are on the menu

There will be no on-site seating

Yellow Cab Tavern has revamped its plan for food truck rallies, turning them into carryout events in response to concerns about coronavirus.

Rally organizers have developed a solution that provides food lovers with the chance to eat from their favorite food trucks while practicing good hygiene and social distancing.

 Rallies will be replaced by carryout events with multiple trucks and no on-site seating. 

“Small businesses like food trucks generally don’t operate over the winter. By the time spring comes, they have used up most of their reserved resources and need to start making money again,” said Brian Johnson, the event organizer, in a news release. “By adjusting our model to carryout, it will provide an opportunity to support these small businesses.”

 In order to ensure customers’ safety, the following rules will be enforced during Yellow Cab Food Truck Carryout events:

• Guests should call, text, or e-mail orders ahead of arrival if possible.

•  Individuals will be encouraged to order for whole families or large groups to prevent such groups from amassing on-site.

•  Eating on-site will not be permitted.

“We’re doing our best to roll with the punches,” Johnson said. “We are committed to providing incredible food from the area’s best food trucks. It’s a matter of balancing service and safety, and we’ll always err on the side of safety.”
