Texas Mac Shack trying to get back on the road
LUBBOCK, Texas (KCBD) - You can help a small business stay afloat after a crash nearly took it out of commission.
The Texas Mac Shack is trying to get back on the road after the trailer rolled over 10 days ago. Two Texas Tech students own the food truck and they say their situation has become observedly more difficult since the crash.
“We rolled over and the trailer is completely totaled, but thank god everyone is okay and we’re just kinda waiting on insurance to do its thing,” said Andrew Alman, co-owner of the Texas Mac Shack. “And during the downtime, we’re renting out a space at the Culinary Co-Op, which is an amazing opportunity, you know to get our feet wet with catering and just allow Lubbock to have a spot to come get our food more often.”
They work out of the Culinary Co-Op only two days a week, on Thursday and Saturday from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. While they have managed to make ends meet with that arrangement, they still have a long way to go to get back on solid ground.
“We’re broke college kids you know, we’re just trying to make it work and then we also have employees and expenses like rent and stuff like that. And then the holidays are coming up so like, it’s just been one of those things you know, we’re trying to keep the faith and know that everything is going to work out like it needs to,” says Alman.
The insurance and the donations are going towards the cost of their overhaul and to get back out on the road. As Alman sees it, “Just making sure we come back and continue to be able to serve people, that’s what we really enjoy.”
To help the Texas Mac Shak get back on the road, you can order delivery or donate to their GoFundMe.
