New food trailer opens up
Pass Herald Reporter
A new food truck business has arrived in the Crowsnest Pass.
June and Jay Wickens have officially launched Snacknhand in and around the Crowsnest Pass.
Snacknhand is a new spot for residents to enjoy pizza cones.
Currently, June says they will be at the community markets going forward as well as other events in and around the community.
Wickens says their plans for what they would serve continued to change as they looked at their options.
"We talked about what we wanted to do. We were looking at maybe doing desserts and then we were looking at the machines and everything like that and then we got interested in doing more and more."
In the end, the decision was made to serve both sweet and savory pizza cones.
"We're doing regular pizza cones and then desserts too. With how the dough forms and holds we're also looking into doing almost a chicken caesar wrap style as well. There's so much we can do with this it's just figuring it all out."
Wickens says people have reached out and invited Snacknhand to certain events but adds it's difficult to find places to park in the community.
"We have a lot of people coming to us and we've been invited to a couple of places. We also found that it's not easy to park in the municipality unless we get permission from private businesses, which then need to be submitted to the municipal office. We have the southern Alberta licensing so we can do MD of Pincher Creek, Cardston County, Willow Creek and MD of Ranchlands. Right now we can only do the community market and private events in the Pass."
The next booking Snacknhand has is at the local ski hill during the Canadian Enduro series that comes to the Crowsnest Pass in June.
