Chicago – What you’re about to read is not a joke: On May 7th, a new food truck will join Chicago’s rapidly-growing fleet. It’s called Fido To Go, and it’s a food truck for dogs.
Tracy Werner, one of FTG’s owners (she’s also the owner of a natural pet foods store in Wheaton called Natural Pet Market) says that the idea for a food truck for dogs came to her while watching a segment about food trucks on TV. “Everything I see on the news, I automatically go: Dogs—how does this relate to dogs?” she says. Food trucks and dogs seemed to her to be “a perfect fit.”
And so on May 7th, at Bark at the Park, Werner will debut FTG. The treats ($1-$3) on the truck (for this really is a treats truck—much more akin to Sweet Ride for dogs and not, say, the dog equivalent of the Southern Mac) come in two forms: baked cookies such as apple harvest squares and sweet potato puffs, and frozen treats, which are, essentially, ice creams for dogs.
