Think of it as the biggest tip jar ever.
Lloyd taco truck entrepreneurs Chris Dorsaneo and Pete Cimino are asking fans to help fund their expansion to a second truck with free-will donations. If they collect $12,500 in pledges by March 29, they're buying a second truck. The Kickstarter money would be about 15 percent of the total cost, and they'd raise the rest themselves.
The Lloyd guys are using Kickstarter, a site that helps coordinate crowd-funded ideas. By March 2, the "Mission Lloyd Dos" total was up to $4,176.
They're offering rewards ranging from a free taco, bumper sticker, and a chance to sign the new truck ($10 donation) to a catered Lloyd event for 50 people at your address ($2,000.)
There's even a "Speed Pass" for $500 - "never wait in line at any of our trucks ever again."
In a release, Cimino said “we get requests to bring the truck to new locations on a daily basis. We wish we could satisfy our fans’ Lloyd cravings more often, so we are asking them to kindly support the cause and pledge at whatever level they are able.”
