Lubbock's food truck culture has boomed in the last few years. And it has presented a wonderful opportunity for diversity in cuisine. Because of food trucks, Lubbock has a source for everything from onigiri to empanadas. It's a more affordable alternative for business owners than a brick-and-mortar location and carries considerably less risk of loss.

However, competition is steep, and not every food truck makes it. One very unique Lubbock food truck is calling it quits, not because of competition, but rather, life:

it’s just not for us and it takes away from our family time when we run

Understandable. The food truck calling it quits is The Yacht Grub, a food truck that served lobster-based dishes including items like bisque, lobster mac and cheese, and, of course, traditional lobster rolls.

The Yacht Grub is looking for a buyer to take over the business "turn-key" according to a Facebook post in Lubbock Food Trucks Today:

We are selling the whole business for $45,000. Message me for more info!
Comes with name, Facebook page, menu, recipes, beverage fridge, chest freezer, flat top grill, 2 burners, large prep fridge, party lights underneath, speakers on inside and outside, card reader and POS system, fire suppression system, stabilizers on each corner (2 in front and 2 in back), 2 (almost full) propane tanks, a brand new hot water heater, electric jack, and more. It has passed inspection and we are throwing in all the back stock of supplies and food (there’s approximately $3000 worth of lobster).
The truck itself is quite attractively designed and the concept seems totally solid to me. Perhaps someone can save The Yacht Grub, and keep this one-of-a-kind concept alive in Lubbock.
