Franktuary Gift Card Giveaway!!

Good afternoon TOP fans and welcome to another edition of WE ACTUALLY GIVE THINGS AWAY ON THIS BLOG!

Today we've got a very SPECIAL treat for you.  But before we get to that part here is some MUST KNOW information about the amazing and wonderful Franktuary food truck!

A few months back, I reviewed Franktuary in downtown Pittsburgh and immediately fell in love. I am so excited to share the good news that Franktuary is celebrating the resurrection of its food truck!  The 1988 Chevy P-30 made its Pittsburgh debut last summer, briefly appearing on the mobile food scene. The vehicle (fully repaired and restored in the finest condition) now vends from Hot Metal Bridge Faith Community’s South Side parking lot at 2700 Jane Street.  Two percent of all profits generated on Hot Metal property are shared with the church, which runs a variety of neighborhood ministries throughout the week. 

The truck will operate from the Hot Metal lot every Tuesday and Thursday from 11 am to 3 pm.  If you don't already follow Franktuary on Facebook and Twitter, you might want to start so you can keep tabs on realtime updates of where the truck is located as it moves around the city on Mondays Wednesdays and Fridays! 

Unique menu items that differ from the downtown storefront are offered from the truck.  Continuing the store’s international topping trend, a Boar’s Head all-beef or locally farmed grass-fed beef frankfurter can be topped as the Brasil - mashed potatoes, tomato corn relish, crumbled bacon, potato sticks and mayo - or the Oahu - bacon, pineapple, green onions, and teriyaki sauce.  Rounding out the menu are vegetarian franks made from whole grilled carrots, grass-fed burgers, and Franktuary’s take on poutine, Canada’s national dish: french fries covered in house-made vegetarian brown gravy and local Cannonball Curds from Arsenal Cheese.

You can also book Franktuary’s truck for private events!  To charter the truck for your event, write to emailus@franktuary.com
