Caplansky's food truck, Thunderin' Thelma.
Toronto delicatessen Caplansky’s operates a food truck that’s available to groups. Nicknamed Thunderin’ Thelma, the truck is available special events and meetings.
According to food truck manager Kevin Zemnickis, the truck’s standard menu includes smoked-meat sandwiches, barbecued brisket sandwiches, smoked-meat poutine, grilled cheese, a daily soup and beef bacon doughnuts – “plus, many specials, anything goes,” he adds.
Geographic restrictions apply, says Zemnickis.
“Currently, within the downtown Toronto grid (Bathurst-Don Valley Parkway/Eglinton-Queens Quay), food vendors cannot apply for permits to serve curbside. They need to [operate] on private property. There is also talk of Toronto enforcing a ‘no-vending in public parking lots’ by-law as well; it will be enforced in the near future. Outside of those boundaries, you need to apply for permit to vend.”
Caplansky’s is considering additional trucks, he adds.
