Now, the freewheeling days of yore are long over and taco-truck perfection and expansion has become a serious business.

“It’s pretty much seven days a week, day in and day out,” says McCusker. “If I’m not in the truck, I’m doing something for the truck or something for the store.”

The goal, McCusker says, is to keep investing in his mini-taco empire so that he can hire employees and get back to having some free time. 

“All the money I make now, I keep dumping into this place,” he says. “[It’s] just me. I pretty much owe all my friends [money]. Like, everyone I know.”

McCusker envisions that by December, he’ll open the top floor of the building and put in picnic tables, where people can hang out and relax, and maybe even BYO, while noshing. 

Of course, the truck will keep truckin’, too.

"[People are like] 'Oh, that's awesome to have a truck," laughs McCusker. "They say, 'It's always been my dream to do this!' And I'm like, 'You can do it, dude.'"

“Picnic tables at Honest Tom's plus the bottle shop at 44 sounds like a good plan to me!”
