UNC students have been snacking on chicken and cheddar biscuits for almost 35 years. Soon, those biscuits will come on wheels.
Eddie Williams, owner of both Time-Out Restaurant and Time-Out Sports Bar, said he plans to expand his Chapel Hill-based business to food trucks in coming months.
“If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em,” Williams said. “This is a sign of the times.”
Time-Out has already bought a truck, said Ira Green, a consultant for Time-Out who added the truck is already being decorated.
Green said that a permit for the food truck has not been obtained, but they hope to apply for one within the next month.
Williams said after noticing the popularity of food trucks in cities across the U.S., he felt like his customers would appreciate a Time-Out food truck.
He said the truck will feature Time-Out’s classic favorites, including the chicken and cheddar biscuit and macaroni and cheese.
“We just feel like we are a Southern, Southern, Southern place,” he said.
Williams said he also hopes the town will let him bring the food truck to UNC’s campus and let him serve food late at night.
