[SCOOP] Rachel Musquiz of Curcuma seeks to move away from the food truck business, a sentiment she shared in a private Facebook group. She says, “I want to open the option of bringing on someone who’d be interested in a GM/Operator role with a profit share. It’d have to be someone passionate about the menu concept and wants to work in the food truck’s day-to-day operations. I have systems down, margins are good, and a solid community.” Musquiz adds, “I have loved my time in the trailer; I just feel like it’s time to move on for me.”
If Musquiz doesn’t find an interested and suitable partner, she will close the food truck in December. She also states, “[Whatever happens,] Curcuma will live on in products and food service for our turmeric paste, and some other offerings.”
Interested parties can contact Musquiz by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

To see it, you have to select “Fall Menu” under the “More Menus” menu (Could we use the word menu any more?). Thanks for sharing your find, Danny!
