The Denverite Highlights SAME Cafe's Mobile Mission

Donna Bryson, of Denver Colorado’s Denverite writes about One World Everybody Eat’s Cafe, S.A.M.E. Cafe, as they launch their food truck!

“Reubendale said the crowds at the East Colfax site tucked between a hair salon and a bakery have made clear the 13-year-old enterprise needed to expand. But it could cost as much as $500,000 to open a new brick-and-mortar restaurant. He budgeted $120,000 for buying and outfitting the food truck and staffing and supplying it for a year, during which he can scout locations, refine planning and rally support for a second restaurant site.”
