The Scoop: Slide Piece launches truck No. 2

Lately, it’s been a thing for food truck operators to open brick-and-mortar locations and expand their reach. But Tommy Lee, owner of Slide Piece food truck, is expanding in a different direction, adding a second slider truck to the streets this week.

“We got our streets department license yesterday (Wednesday, May 3), but we’ve been able to do private events around the city for a couple of weeks,” Lee said. Both trucks will sport the same graphics, operate in the greater St. Louis area, and have the same basic menu, though each will run unique specials.

Lee said the reason for rolling out truck No. 2 is pretty straightforward — business is booming. The first Slide Piece truck debuted in December 2015, and since then, demand has steadily increased, especially for private functions.

“I think we’ve seen the food truck scene in St. Louis continually evolve and expand,” Lee said. “And we’re seeing a lot of people who see the flexibility of trucks for graduation parties, weddings, private events like that, where we can come in and get set up in 45 minutes and be completely gone 15 minutes after the event is over.”
