  • Pig Latin Food Truck will close temporarily starting August 1.
On Monday, July 10, the owners of Pig Latin Food Truck announced via Facebook that they will be temporarily closing for business on August 1. There is no planned re-opening date. The truck is immobile, according to a previous post. We reached out for more information via Facebook for details.

It turns out there's quite a lot going on that has led to the closure, both professional and personal. Co-owner Andres Velez says that the truck's brakes are down, making it unsafe to drive.

"Since it's an older truck, it uses an outdated brake system that isn't the easiest/fastest to repair," he says.

They're also in search of a new commissary — the one they're working with, a local restaurant that wishes to remain anonymous, has gotten too busy and can no longer host Velez. Further, there's an issue between Velez and spouse/Pig Latin owner-operator Tricia Velez's homeowner's association and their dogs, so they're house hunting on top of the rest.

"Until we get our vehicle fixed, house sold, replacement home purchased, and new commissary, we won't reopen," says Velez. In the meantime, they've announced new, extended hours at their 112 E. Boulder St. location so their customers can get their fill of porcine bliss before the closing date.

"We didn't want to shut down out of the blue and not give our customers a chance to get their meals before we close down," he says. Check out the full schedule embedded below.
