Ramone Dickerson and Corey Simmons are back on the airwaves in “2 Fat 2 Fly” this Saturday, February 28 on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) at 10pm/9c.
This 8 episode series takes a look at how these two best friends operate their truck, the “Fonz,” and seek out business expansion opportunities. Their hometown of Columbia, South Carolina has faithfully supported them, but they try to answer the question: “Is there more?”
Mobile Cuisine sat down with Ramone and Corey last week to get “the fat” (instead of “the skinny”) on their foibles throughout the series. Overall, they were pretty tight-lipped on the specific happenings, but they’ve learned whole lot more about food truck operations and themselves. Corey comments, “When we started, we were like teenagers. We took our licks and bumps starting out, but like a teenager you quickly get up and keep moving forward. Now we feel more like adults in business.”
What we will see are real friends/business owners face the hurdles and questions of business expansion. They’ve been at the edge of a precipice of business growth for a while now. How do they take that leap? Which direction do they jump? How do they do it while protecting their delicious stuffed wings?
Stay tuned to find out. “2 Fat 2 Fly” will air on Saturday nights on OWN at 10pm/9c. We’ll summarize each show after it airs and share more of our conversation throughout the season.
We want to see Ramone and Corey grow their un-clucking believable stuffed chicken wing business… There will be tons of laughter and a look into their real lives along the way.
