Wow! What A Summer For Sambel’s Food Truck
Move To Joe’s Pond In Danville A Big Success
Location! Location! Location! That’s what some say success is
all about, and that’s what popular restaurateurs Bob and BrendaSambel discovered this year when they moved their two-year“food truck” operation to Joe’s Pond beach area at the intersectionof highly traveled Rtes. 2 and 15 in West Danville.The Sambels had established a legendary restaurant at theBerlin Knapp Airport for over 20 years until a lease dispute withthe state Agency of Transportation, who managed the airport ter-minal, ended with a settlement to leave that facility.Being in the catering business for almost 40 years, the Sambelshad outfitted several trucks to fit this side of the business. Uponleaving the airport location, Bob and Brenda purchased a largertruck that they equipped with gas stoves, refrigeration, etc., and ineffect fashioned a very workable “galley-style” kitchen.“People were always amazed at what we were able to do in avery small kitchen at the airport and now creating much of thesame great meals, including prime rib, fried shrimp and scallops,whole belly clams, monster burgers (8 oz.), chili, soups, etc. in aneven smaller space,” jokes Bob Sambel.And although this first year at Joe’s Pond was a little rainy tobegin with, it was an immediate success with local residents andvisitors.WCAX Channel 3 TV recently featured the Sambels as an
example of the popularity of “food trucks” springing up inVermont.
The Sambels even took this concept up a notch when theyrecently installed a dock behind their main truck at Joe’s for boat-ers to come for lunch or dinner. Earlier, they created covered din-
ing space for customers’ comfort.
All the while they continue with catering special events.“Hopefully we can continue at Joe’s well into October,” believethe Sambels.They will also be at the Tunbridge World’s Fair, as usual, Sept.12-15.For more information, call the Sambels at 249-7758.
