Dog days of summer have arrived. How are you beating that heat? Maybe you play kickball with kiddy pools for bases and slip and slides for base paths? That’s the way.

Below are the top photos from around the region last week. You can see the story behind our top 4 over at The Public’s Visuals Blog.

This week we got @harold_jeffries, AKA Pat Fisher, Marketing and Social Media Director for @whereslloyd. Get a load of what keeps him moving on a very hot box of a truck all summer long and go visit him personally on the OG LLOYD mobile down at M&T on Main St any day.

When you’re on a 110 degree food truck with 3 other people confined to a 20 square foot area and 35 people in line, you need a few songs to keep you going. Some of these songs remind me of our first real summer with lloyd, battling with Teddy to make sure Nickleback never gets played on a lloyd truck ever again. It took us a couple months to wean Teddy off the sick vocal abilities of Chad Kroeger, but little by little we got him to listen to acceptable music.

The past 5 years have been nothing short of incredible; 4 trucks, a flourishing catering business & a restaurant on the way (coming soon!). The support we’ve received from people ALL over Buffalo, even to places like East Aurora, North Tonawanda, & Orchard Park has been incredible. We’ve got a great group of employees that allow us to pull off difficult services on a daily basis without a hitch! Pairing with the International Institute was the best decision we’ve ever made. The refugees we’ve hired have the work ethic of 12 men, the greatest attitudes we’ve ever witnessed & without them, lloyd wouldn’t be where it is today. Buffalo is a unique city & since it’s on the RISE, the food truck scene has been able to flourish.

Hey Folks! Our apologies, but a glitch in WordPress’s system is blocking us from embedding the fantastic IG’s from this town’s OG’s this week. Please enjoy screen shots for now, and we’ll try to get you live files again next week.


Rise guys.
