πŸ“£ Just over 1 year ago we opened up for our very first day. It has been a wild year, full of ups and downs. Mostly ups πŸ˜‰ We have felt an overwhelming outpouring of love and support from the community and we are beyond grateful πŸ™ If you haven't heard, we are expanding into a restaurant, Renegade Kitchen & Craft Bar, in downtown Kelowna! We are permanently closing the food truck after this week to shift our focus to getting the restaurant open as soon as we can! No set opening date yet. Thank you to everyone who has come out to support us, whether you came twice a week, or just twice ever, we couldn't do what we do without YOU guys ❀ If you want one last meal before you're put on a burger hiatus, catch us this Fri @truck59cider 11-7 PM, or Sat @denimonthediamond (tix still available) ✊ Be sure to stay tuned to our social media for restaurant updates and menu development πŸ˜ŽπŸ”
