Well-known, community-driven Longmont restaurant, Samples World Bistro, has gone mobile. The restaurant has added a food truck to their business, allowing visitors a chance to try their eclectic menu on the go. The truck has been roving the Longmont area for a couple months, and now you can grab a meal at some of Longmont’s craft brewers.
Taking the idea of small bites and a variety of cuisines to the streets, the Samples World Bistro food truck will now be making weekly stops at Grossen Bart Brewery, 1025 Delaware Ave., on Wednesdays, Wibby Brewing, 209 Emery St., on Thursdays, and Left Hand Brewing Company, 1265 Boston Ave., on Saturdays. Mark Sample, owner of Samples, has plans to align the truck’s daily specials with each brewery, “We are going to tailor our menu to the breweries we go to. The folks at Wibby Brewing are from Chicago and have requested an authentic Chicago Italian Beef (sandwich). We are doing our research and will be debuting on a Thursday at Wibby soon! The menu will continue to evolve and change. We simply want the best food truck menu on the planet. We also want to be pairing our food with the beer at the breweries we (serve).”
Mark Sample has ensured that Samples World Bistro is more than just great food paired with good beer. He and his team have worked hard to support the community, especially those with special needs. Under the umbrella of Sample Supports, a local agency started by Mark and his wife Carmen that provides comprehensive programs to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Mark and Carmen have done great work in helping those with disabilities find job placement, both internally and within the community. The food truck is another marketing outlet for Sample Support’s programs and offers employment opportunities, “The truck is an exciting way for us to provide community-based jobs for our clients.” Samples explained.
The Samples World Bistro food truck has a regular, weekly schedule, and they are also available for area events. Any interest in booking the truck should be directed through the catering link on their website.
