Tim Logan and Claire Masingill have teamed up to make Charleston’s first breakfast food truck. Logan graduated from the College of Charleston with a degree in business and Masingill from the University of Georgia in economics. They met two years ago working at McCrady’s and thought: what can we do to use our business knowledge and our passion for food?
“Breakfast is our favorite thing,” says Logan, “We eat out a lot around town, and we felt it was lacking.” Neither has a culinary degree but both were raised in the kitchen.
“We just love food, so we decided to do something we love,” says Logan.
Outta My Huevos will have an always-changing chalkboard menu. They plan to source local ingredients whenever possible. “It’s going to be what people like for breakfast, simple and straightforward,” says Logan. That means breakfast sandwiches and burritos, and at least one sweet item like a waffle.
Logan and Masingill havev put a lot of thought into their first venture. A food truck eliminates overhead like electricity and rent. “Eventually, the goal is to have a stationary restaurant,” says Logan.
But first, they’ve got to hit the road. They’ve had a few setbacks involving truck parts, and even having to change their name. The original name was Whisk, but when Whisk Bakery opened on Meeting Street it was back to square one. A McCrady’s kitchen employee opened the door into his co-worker who replied, “Hey! Get outta my huevos!” and it had been decided.
They plan to be rollin’ in early June. Keep an eye on Facebook and Twitter for an opening date.
