GRAND JUNCTION, Colo- U.S. Bank stirs up some tasty surprises on a food truck. The bank partners with local businesses at every stop of its Good Truck tour, giving food for free.
For businesses like Fruita’s Hot Tomato, this is a sweet and saucy opportunity. The real incentive is getting to serve a wider audience in the Grand Valley.
“Just the customers we’ve helped out so far really excited just to walk up and get a free stromboli and a little bit of salad unexpectedly,” Aaron Knapp describes, “It’s pretty awesome just to see their reaction and spread that love to the community.”
Each stop on the tour has a free treat that is a two for one deal.
“The Good Truck tour is a win on both sides of the table,” Cora Dickey reports, “U.S Bank gets to spread some good in the community and a local business gets spread their brand to the people.”
The Good Truck is one way U.S. Bank supports small businesses. The other transaction is getting to spread some delight across the country.
“The truck makes about 100 stops across the country,” Kyle Witt shares, “So we’re here today in Grand Junction giving out free treats in the community, we’re going to Clifton and then we’ll be in Fruita. We just wanna make sure we get as much as we can on the schedule we’ve got to make sure we get all those other communities that we’ll have the truck stop in as well.”
U.S Bank wants the Good Truck to be a gift of all trades, letting everyone who comes to eat leave full with a smile.
The Good Truck is scheduled with two more stops in the Grand Valley with Hot Tomato and Homestyle Bakery, where the next destination stop is Chico, CA:
