D'Amico Catering has introduced a food truck that complements their Bushel & Peck café. The truck will operate at various on-street locations near the Mill City Museum in Minneapolis, which houses the recently updated café.

Operating daily from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. through the end of October, the Bushel & Peck food truck offers burgers, plain or loaded fries, a brisket sandwich and a chili cheese dog. There is also a chicken, mango and avocado salad or a grain and vegetable bowl for diners seeking a light and healthy meal.

Hungry customers will also be able to catch the food truck at Minnesota Historical Society evening events and venues throughout the summer, including Nine Nights of Music at the Minnesota History Center on Tuesday nights in July and August, and Mill City Live at Mill City Museum on Wednesday nights in August as well as other community and private events around town.

“D’Amico & Partners has been working with the Minnesota Historical Society for almost 15 years and we are excited to continue and grow this wonderful partnership. The Bushel & Peck food truck will supplement our café operations, not only at Mill City Museum, but also at the Minnesota History Center and potentially at other historical properties for their high-traffic needs,” says Larry D’Amico, cofounder, D’Amico & Partners. “The food truck provides a quick, convenient and quality lunch option for Downtown East area residents, hotel guests, businesses, riverfront visitors, farmer’s market shoppers and others. It’s also an exciting new tool for D’Amico Catering that will provide our customers with another service option.”

Bill Von Bank, vice president of marketing and communications for Experience Rochester Minnesota Convention & Visitors Bureau and Mayo Civic Center, knows how to make a luscious pie. On summer and fall weekends, he travels to Minnesota farmers markets as Bill the Pie Guy, selling his homemade apple, blueberry, mixed berry, strawberry, rhubarb, peach, and pecan pies to hungry marketgoers—and donating the profits to hunger-relief organizations.
