The Sizzle Truck Comes to Spigot, Inc.

Catered lunches are a big plus at Spigot! We all enjoy a sizzling good meal, right? One of our favorites is the Sizzle Truck! They are a family owned food truck creating gourmet sandwiches and appetizers using only the freshest, local ingredients. Everything is made fresh to order.

“UPDATE Shortly after publication, FORBES was contacted by Katalov and another source, who claimed that their old records were disappearing. It appears, they said, that Apple is purging. There was no update from Apple, however.”
