Food Truck of the Week – ‘The Waffle Wagon’

It’s often been said that good things come in small packages, well, in this case, great things come from small trailers.

~Review by Mark Gammon~

This week we feature the tiny Waffle Wagon. Approximately six feet by maybe 7 feet, but loaded with some serious potential to dish out an amazing dessert.

“The Waffle Wagon’s” owner is Lisa DeRushe-McCartney, a warm woman whose daytime job is a mild-mannered medical coder and by night Lisa is a  dessert purveyor who manages to keep things running smoothly making each item right in front of you. Lisa has an exclusive license to use “ Waffle envy’s” delicious waffles.

With backup from her parents, Bill and Vicki, and bolstered by son Caimin, who delivered and set up the trailer before Lisa got off work the day this article was written, Lisa somehow moves seamlessly with a dessert dance that’s worth a second look.

Lisa says she always wanted to have a Food Truck and decided to start out small.  She purchased the business from a local family in 2017. She’s still got the bug to move to bigger digs and has been shopping for a truck to convert. Lisa’s background is in the restaurant and retail business.
“The Waffle Wagon” doesn’t have a brick and mortar store, and there’s not much chance of one for now, but with Lisa’s background in restaurants and retail it’s only a matter of time.  It’s a unique business that really works well for special events, parties and of course, Food Truck Fridays.

Describing Lisa’s dessert is not easy without a little salivating. Start with ice cream, then take a fresh Belgium waffle and chop it into bite-size pieces. This all comes together nicely, but …..wait….then fresh fruit compote some serious whipped crème and drizzles of chocolate syrup and I think I saw some caramel as well. Who cares! She had us at ice crème, waffles and whipped crème.
Be sure to come by and try this amazing dessert.
