D’Amico Catering Takes its Show on the Road with All-New Bushel & Peck Food Truck

Food truck will provide on-the-go lunch options in Downtown East area and support Minnesota Historical Society events and venues, D’Amico Catering and D’Amico restaurants

D’Amico Catering announced the roll-out of its Bushel & Peck food truck. Designed to complement the company’s Bushel & Peck café, which rolled out its updated décor and menu at Mill City Museum in April, the truck will operate at various on-street locations near the museum daily from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. through October, providing a fast and convenient option for area diners seeking lunch on-the-go. The Bushel & Peck food truck menu includes burgers, fries (plain or “loaded” options), a brisket sandwich, and a chili cheese dog.  A chicken, mango and avocado salad or a grain and vegetable bowl are available for diners seeking light and healthy fare.

The Bushel & Peck food truck will also serve at various Minnesota Historical Society evening events and venues throughout the summer, such as 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, and it will be a mobile extension of D’Amico Catering and its new Bushel & Peck brand through its operations at other public and private events and locations around town. D’Amico & Partners restaurants also will use the truck for community events.

“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,” said Larry D’Amico, D’Amico & Partners cofounder. “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.”
