The announcement reads:

HEY DAYTON! WE HAVE AN ANNOUNCEMENT FOR YA! 

 Thanks to medical advancement and the amazing staff at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we are making a comeback in 2018!  

That’s right. We will be back, with our original menu plus a lot of new sandwiches! Katie, the owner, had two rathke cleft cysts on her brain last year. The symptoms caused her to have to shut the truck down, and she assumed permanently. Now that the issue is resolved, instead of jumping ship, we are back in open waters! 

We are so excited to come back to the streets of Dayton to serve our fresh, original, and delicious cuisine to you. Please contact us through here, email, or phone to book your event for 2018.  

WE LOVE YOU DAYTON!!!! Thank you for your loyalty and patronage!
