The Grease Trucks of Rutgers have been a big part of life for Rutgers students...and NJ residents for decades. They have been on many food shows. Man vs. Food did a challenge a few years ago. But...change is in the air.
It would be so sad to see this change. Change usually means getting screwed.http://www.nj.com/news/in..._g.html?mobRedir=false
For RU Hungry & the rest of the trucks the rival is now Rutgers. Rutgers says they lose money in the deal every year. But the trucks are a tradition for students...and counting pennies as opposed to pissing off Alumni is silly. The trucks all get along fine. The last thing anyone wants to see are squeaky new truck rivals.
Another sobering thought for anyone thinking about this business. You're never untouchable.
Aramark has deep pockets. When they come to town...they have plenty of money to throw at a problem....to make it go away.
