Hey Corbin stop with all the drama on your video and your kick starter begging. It's a burger truck not the backbone of the local economy or a non profit agency feeding the poor. If you want to repair the truck you screwed up by by doing something stupid it's your responsibility. Hey maybe I should get on kick starter and beg for some beer and pizza money. Ok everybody I want to open a bar / pizzaria. It's been years in the planning and we need another place to buy beer and pizza or our local economy is gonna collapse. I need 2 er 4 er 8 thousand dollars for a keg and a microwave. Please give generously and often.

He has to be pretty hard up not to be able to fix his own truck. How can he have the balls to ask people to help. If he can't afford one truck how is he going to run two?? lmao

Wow. The insurance lapsed the morning of the fire? What kind of business allows that to happen? Maybe it should come back as Crazy, Stupid. If his business is so good he must be piss poor at budgeting money because the cost to repair can't be that great. Just don't re-open. Your burgers weren't that great anyway. The one time I tried one it was burnt on the outside, uncooked in the middle and the pickles were horrible. Don't get me started on the fries.

I was pro-Corbin until he started this kickstarter campaign. Insurance expired? That just seems too convenient for the insurance company. I will eat elsewhere from now on.

That is really a good question? How can he afford to do another truck? If he had the money, then he would have had insurance. Sadly, we live in a culture where people ask for help with all kinds of things, medical bills, car repairs, etc. My brother paid for years (and I have done the same) on his daughter's hospital bill and never asked anyone to start a donation campaign (cans in grocery stores, Facebook pages, etc soliticing donations). In days past, if folks needed money they worked multiple jobs, or got help from family. I am sorry for this fire loss, but it really isn't the responsibility of the customers to help rebuild a food truck.

I don't really know Corbin but I have visited the truck. Just one word if you are going to continue the campaign: redo the video, as you came across as insincere and begging. Just my opinion though.

Agreed 100%. To Corbin: I have a sincere doubt that your insurance was canceled the "day of" that fire.

Oh I don't doubt the insurance lapsed cause thats when something happens. Maybe he needs to sell the other truck to repair the original instead of asking for donations. Glad no one got hurt though. It is a shame the people on the truck not working now. Hope he gets it fixed but he needs to pay for his own repairs. Need to put away a percentage of income for these things as you go along.

Grease build up in the ventilation system (above the grill). There are most likely some filters behind those vents. Usually a metal mesh type filter that can cake up over time if you don't clean them. High enough flame from the grill could then ignite the grease. I am speculating, but I have seen it before elsewhere.

Seriously... could that be why my burger tasted like I licked grease straight off the grill the one time I ate there?

Funny how all the inbreds here will give their money to churches no problem but when a local business asks for help...

I don't give money to churches. I certainly am not going to help bail him out. He had a good business. Maybe he should have budgeted his money more wisely and then he wouldn't have his hand out. He gets no respect from me asking for help. He shouldn't be in business if this is how he handles things.

So the way Kickstarter works is you have a pledge/reward system. Customers, supporters, family and friends pledge money and receive these rewards. The rewards we are offering range from hats and shirts to a 300 person catered event. We will be up and running again pretty soon. Two trucks... top of the line food, customer service and top notch health scores.

I really don't care if you respect me or not. I am giving our customers the opportunity to help rebuild the truck. Crowd funding is a fairly common way projects are funded these days. It isn't that different than people looking to banks for lines of credit or selling bonds. In fact it is very much in keeping with our keep it local concept.

Really? I don't see other businesses with their hands out. Taco Bell rebuilt, they didn't have a hand out. Bojangles didn't have a hand out. Yes, they are franchised but its the same principal. Keep it local? Didn't the locals keep you in business to begin with? Why help you rebuild. Isn't that part of owning a business? Why should the customers help you rebuild? Do they get a cut of your profit? What's in it for us? Overpriced, undercooked, over rated burgers? I ate your food one time and one time only. My burger was burnt around the edges and raw in the middle. You can get better fries at McDs when they are cold. Just saying :). You are not making a good name for yourself asking for help. Fact. Heard multiple people talking about it today at work.

If you can't repair the damage then how long will it take you to be able to pull off a 300 person catering job?
If you spent $5.00 an that is on the low side, it could easily run a few thousand out of your pocket. I am not questioning your integrity, just think you are making promises that will be hard to keep. I honestly can't remember one business that calls a line of credit, a kick starter from the community. If you want to get the truck back on the road soon then why not put your truck or home up for collateral??

I remember a few years back, I'd say it was around 2008, that there were some well-known banks asking for handouts. As I recall, our president at the time and his Treasury Secretary, Henry Paulson, were convinced that those banks just had to have those handouts. Most of those banks are still in business today, and some of them are bigger than ever.

I do not recall being asked if I wanted to contribute to the bailout, but I am sure I did. In the Crazy Good case, friends and family are being asked to contribute, but no one is demanding that anyone does so. You obviously are not interested in helping out, so why don't you put on your big girl (or boy) britches and move on to something else? Your attacks on this couple are getting old.
