The Cracked Truck is moving away

The Cracked Truck is moving away from C-U. Never fear: the Green Street location will still be open serving up breakfast sammies and tots. You can catch the Cracked Truck one last time this weekend on Saturday, September 26th at the Urbana Market in the Square

Read this letter from Cracked about their announcement:

Dear Champaign-Urbana,
Ten years ago, we had a dream to bring breakfast sandwiches to the masses. We didn’t know how this little project would turn out, but with great enthusiasm, Champaign-Urbana welcomed us with open arms. From Farmers markets to Football tailgates, from welcome week to graduation weekend, you’ve been there with us. We started out as one of very few food trucks in the area. Over the years, we’ve seen the food truck scene explode in town and none of this could have been possible without the love and support from the community.

It’s with mixed emotions we announce that our last Farmers Market will be this Saturday, September 26th. The Cracked Truck will be moving to Gary, IN starting this fall where we have an opportunity to share our breakfast revolution with a new town. We’ve been working closely with the town to make this project happen over the past few months. Our ultimate goal is to bring the same food truck culture to Gary as we have seen grow in C-U. We can only hope to have the same amazing experience there as we’ve had in Champaign-Urbana.

This move does not come without careful consideration. Since March, the pandemic has struck our little company very hard. Along with most of our friends and colleagues in the food and beverage industry, we have been forced to adjust our businesses and look to other avenues to keep our doors and windows open. This has been a hard time for everyone, and we encourage you all to continue to support your local small businesses in this time. We want to fully thank the entire community for embracing us over the years and helping us grow from one little food truck to a concept that spans multiple cities. For those of you who make us a part of your Saturday morning routine at the Lincoln Square Farmers Market,
we want to assure you that our storefront on Green Street will remain open. We look forward to having another amazing ten years slinging breakfast sandwiches to the entire Champaign-Urbana community.

Thank you again for everything you have given us over the years, we are truly in debt to this community forever.

With love and gratitude,
