For the past year and a half, many of us have been thoroughly enjoying Hot Diggity‘s gourmet dogs on South Street. If you haven’t had one of their 11 regionally inspired, gourmet hot dogs or one of their monthly specials, you’re most certainly missing out.
Don’t worry though, they’re planning to expand their presence and have taken to Lucky Ant to help support their efforts. They’re planning on getting a food truck! $7,000 is the bare minimum to get started but other milestones include $8,500 to buy the necessary equipment to serve up the food and if they reach $10,000 they’ll be able to commission local artist Hawk Krall to deck out a mural wrap encompassing the whole vehicle.
Here’s some answers to questions you probably have—
When will the Food Truck be open?
Well that kind of depends on our campaign! If we successfully fund our project we will be on the streets and slanging wieners by the spring.
Where will the Hot Diggity Food Truck be located?
That’s a great question! Part of running this campaign is to see where in the city our biggest fans are located. Want to bring the Hot Diggity Food Truck to your neighborhood? Send us a tweet or Facebook message with your ideas and get your friends to do the same. If a bunch of people want us to come to a specific neighborhood, we’ll be there!
The Project: Hot Diggity Lunch Truck/Hot Dog Cart
The Sweet Spot: A $25 donation snags you a $35 gift certificate. If you’re a regular or have been meaning to check out the joint, this donation level is a no-brainer. The gift certificate can also be used at the new truck when it gets rolling. Buy one, buy several. Have more money to spend? $500 will allow you to design and name your own hot dog, thereby immortalizing you through your creation in Philly’s hot dog history. Plus, you’ll get two hot dogs a day for a solid month. $1000 gets you a hot dog and a drink every day for a solid year, especially useful for those on hot dog-heavy diet.
Funding Deadline: Monday, February 4, 2013
