Wicked Good Truck (Facebook, Twitter) will be running a pair of food trucks in Portland and on Peaks Island this Spring. Owner Nate Underwood hopes to launch the Portland truck sometime in early May, and the Peaks Island truck later in the month. There will be a fixed location for the Peaks truck near the ferry; Wicked Good in Portland is expected to be more of a mobile operation.
Adam Alfter, who many of you will remember as the chef/owner of Deux Cochon, is heading up the culinary staff. The final menu is still under development but they’re aiming for broad appeal, anything from scrapple to lighter/healthier options.
Underwood is hoping that Wicked Good Truck can do its part to expand the choices for moderately priced fare on Peaks. He’s also looking to this new business to give his three kids the opportunity to learn what’s involved in launching and running a business.
