Every Day I’m Hustlin’

A request for crabby fries is on the lips of nearly every customer who orders from the Cruisin’ Café window during the weekday lunch rush, and Amy Arno is delighted to fill them. Arno and her husband, Tom, have been selling their signature dish, french fries drowned in lump crab dip, from the Cruisin’ Café food truck since February. Using social media to announce the truck’s location (@cruisincafeLLC), they average 70 customers per day and about $500 in daily sales. Cruisin’ Café was also named the best new food truck by the Gathering, a near-weekly, well, gathering of food trucks. While Tom has greater hopes to be named “Best Food Truck” by Baltimore’s Best Free Alternative Weekly, Amy simply loves the thrill of feeding their delicious creations to Charm City’s citizens. “It’s almost like they aren’t just our customers,” she says. “They become our friends.”
