1. Silver linings in a shut down.
When it became obvious in late November that North Carolina was going to be shut down again. Chef Andrew decided to preserve foods and make bulk lunch meat. Knowing he would like to do a bologna sandwich pop up if they were to shut down the restaurant.
Chef Andrew decided to collaborate on his bologna sandwich dreams, and so brought in Chefs Graham, Rob and PJ. When developing the rest of the menu around the original bologna sandwich, they really looked at what they had in their fridges and freezers. From there they put together their small 5 iteam menu.
Trashalachian uses the company Kickback for their delivery services. Kickback is a local company and its a great delivery option for restaurants because they don’t charge the restaurants for their services, unlike other delivery options out there.
4. Staying relevant.
Another benefit of a pop up like Trashlacian is that it keeps you and your business in the minds of the community.
5. Working together.
The benefit of working together can really be seen in Trashalacian. They successfully brought together their different skills to compliment one another.
