A Glacier County community known for its frigid temperatures has turned into a hot spot for small businesses.
Three months ago, Cut Bank welcomed its first food truck, the Penguin Food Pushers.
Owners Josh Rutherford and Brian Lindberg said business has been great so far.
“The community has been awfully nice to us,” Lindberg said. “Everyone has been coming down to eat our food and everyone has been spreading the word around. It’s a great deal.”
And they couldn’t be happier.
“I love it, you can’t beat being your own boss and just coming to work with a smile on your face and working hard all day,” Rutherford said.
The men said that while they wanted to start their own business, they didn't know it would be this one.
"We had industry jobs doing different stuff in the food industry and the bar industry and kind of knew we wanted to own our own business and could do it, got some ideas to make some food and just kind of jumped on that opportunity when it was presented to us,” Lindberg said.
While the truck is only stationary right now, there are talks of becoming mobile.
“We do plan to travel at some point in time if the opportunity is presented to us and we can go to an event and sell some food,” Lindberg said.
The Penguin Food Pushers are located in the courtyard behind the Cut Bank Creek Brewery.
The menu includes home fries, spare ribs, hamburgers, smoked brisket, bbq chicken, burritos and homemade nachos plus much more.
The food truck is open Tuesday through Saturday during the brewery’s business hours.
