While the cold temperatures and massive snowbanks have prevented us from popping up street side, we spent the last 31 days reflecting on what a whirlwind 2015 was and started planning for an epic 2016 adventure.
We're not the kind of girls to kiss and tell or reveal too much too soon so our future plans will stay hushhush for now but we wanted to take a minute to say THANK YOU for making our 2nd year even better than the 1st and invite you to take a peek in our rear view mirror one last time before we hit the road:
"Over 230 participants, representing all provinces and the Northwest Territories came together to prioritized promising opportunities to expand youth entrepreneurship and agree on an action plan to drive entrepreneurship in Canada forward. Based on the results of the Summit and other Action Entrepreneurship initiatives, Futurpreneur Canada released a national action plan to expand youth entrepreneurship"
2015 was our 2nd appearance at the summit, it's an inspiring event that always leaves us with new connections and pages of ideas to bring back to Saint John! (In a happy coincidence Toronto was celebrating "Food Truck Freedom Day" while we were visiting. Multiple trucks [and hundreds of people] gathered at City Hall to celebrate relaxed by-laws allowing trucks more freedom to park and vend. Of course we made it a point to celebrate right along with them and wish for this kind of vision to come to life in SJ!)

Harvesting the Arts was the truck's first ever public appearance in 2013. It's an event we hold dear to our hearts and support unconditionally as a true testament of community engagement and all the incredible things that can happen when everyone comes together to celebrate Saint John and Uptown. It was the most perfect Fall day!
And then came more press! We were featured on Huddle! It's such a thrill to be able to tell our story and this time it was a little more in depth than previous articles have been. Thanks, Cherise! http://huddle.today/dominique-leger-always-in-pursuit
