Pittsburgh's growing food truck scene, whose struggles and perseverance we reported on earlier this summer, has lost one of its newest members.
Originally set to open Aug. 15, James Rich, owner of the PGH Taco Truck, announced on his Facebook and Twitter accounts early this morning that his truck is for sale. Rich has chronicled throughout the summer his journey acquiring the truck and testing his taco recipes, gathering a devoted following.
"There's a ton of support for it," he says, adding that it wasn't the market or burdensome city regulations that stopped him. The decision is personal, he says.
"It's more than I can handle and manage in my life," he says. "I'm holding back tears about this. It was really the toughest decision I made in my life."
