Most famous truck in Halifax

There is a proliferation of (usually ugly) food trucks these days sprouting out at odd places at odd times.

With a paint job meant to look like Graffiti, this carefully fitted out Ford is probably better looking, and in much better condition that most Halifax food trucks.

But there are still some traditional fry wagons on the street occupying regular positions.

There is nothing particularly scary about Monster Fries' Utilimaster, which has been stationed at Point Pleasant Park this year.
(Utilimaster is owned by Spartan Motors and includes the former Union City Body Co, that bought General Motors' chassis division back in 1998.)

The most famous is certainly Bud the Spud and his vintage Grumman Olson Kurbmaster. Bud and Co have been in the business for 30 years plus and are a fixture on Spring Garden Road.
(When Grumman Olson was declared bankrupt in 2001 it was purchased by an investment house. The step van line is now known as Morgan Olson.)

The white colour is no accident, since the operators stress cleanliness to attract patrons.

  1. I always admired the uniqueness of the most famous truck in Halifax. For long weekend vacation, this convertible truck is best for whole family to use. When I'm driving with my cab, I always stop and drop by, they serve fast food and I love the their concept.
