AK's is almost ready!

Ak's arrived on Saturday August 14th, and hopefully will be ready to rock some food out soon. We have our Health Dept. inspection on Tuesday the 17th and then a Washington L&I inspection in Tumwater. This has been a long trip and I feel that we are very close! We will be having a soft opening for friends and family then we will get this ball rollin. Look for a Grand Opening sometime in September! We will have a somewhat flexible schedule, and then will also be scheduling Vineyard dinners and be available for private functions! What we have is a 8.5X18 foot trailer, essentially 153 sq ft kitchen, with 50 cubic feet of refrigeration. By comparison, my total kitchen at Andrae's was 340 sq ft. We have a 6 burner range with a convection oven, a 24 inch Charbroiler, a 24 inch flat-top and a 40lb deep fryer. The menu will be all over the board, from burgers and fries to curries and croquettes, we will have something for everyone! Hopefully our website will be finished and we will be able to post updates and menus, as well as allow customer/fan interaction, by the time we open!
