Cake Face buys new truck, sells old one

Cake Face, the food truck owned by Summer and Dave Schoenhals, needs more space, so the couple recently purchased a larger truck to replace the trailer they’ve used since opening in last July.

The new truck is 18 X 8 and is one piece with the truck cab, just like the Flying Stove’s. The Schoenhals sold their 6 x 14-foot trailer to The Rolling Dough, a pizza food truck that Joseph and Cherre Nestelroad plan to open in September. They’ll have a wood-fired oven in the truck at at first hope to be open for Friday dinners, Saturday lunch and dinner and Sunday lunch.

The Schoenhals will take three to four weeks to get their new rig fixed up then will turn the trailer over to the Nestelroads.

For now, the Cake Facers’ previous plans to open a stationary retail space are on hold. The deal they thought they had worked out fell through, and finding a different space has proven difficult, Summer said. The larger truck will give them the work and storage space they need to be out on the streets more.

Cake Face also has started selling some of its baked goods at businesses around town. Espresso to Go Go and Cero’s already carry some of their items, and Food For Thought will begin offering some soon.
