TRI-CITIES, Wash. — With temperatures heating up this week food truck owners across the Tri-Cities are preparing to keep cool.
Action News caught up with the Non-Fiction by J. Bookwalter food truck at the Columbia Gardens Wine and Artisan Village on Tuesday.
The food truck has been up and running for just one month and serves a mix of both northwest and southern comfort food dishes like grit tots and fried chicken sandwiches.
"We've had lots of positive feedback it's been amazing," Maigh Willingham with Non-Fiction said.
Will and Maigh Willingham say this is their very first time working in a food truck, all of their past chef experience has been at brick and mortar shops. The couple says they are as prepared as they can be.
"This is definitely new we were lucky enough to get an A/C unit right in time for this heat wave it's keeping up for the most part we're trying to stay cool stay hydrated water bottles we're basically giving them out at this point if anybody needs them to stay hydrated down here by the water," Maigh said.
Despite the heat, the two aren't cutting their hours.
Non-Fiction will be open from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. now through Saturday.
On Sunday, June 6th there will be live music at the village from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.
