Will Drewski’s Hot Rod Kitchen roll out the Krush Burger truck?

For a tiny while this weekend, it looked love one more rig was poised to roll onto Sacramento’s gourmet food truck scene. That was the impression left by veteran food-truck operator Andrew “Drewski” Blaskovich when he recently posted on Facebook that he’s expanding his presence in the Sacramento area – with a twist.

Lamenting the absence of restaurateur Davin Vculek’s food truck on the streets and at events sponsored by the the food-truck advocacy grouping SactoMoFo (Sacramento Mobile Food), Blankovich wrote that he “felt it'd be an injustice to the food truck world to let Krush Burger mobile die... So I decided to purchase the truck and hold it a Krush Burger.”

However, in a brief phone call on Saturday, April nine, Blaskovich told The Bee he'd taken down the Facebook post, and would declare only, “We’re excited about the possibilities of working together.” He added he'd call later in the week with the details when whatever it's that needed to be settled had been settled.

The Bee called Vculek at his Rocklin restaurant, but he'd not arrive to the phone. Instead, a manager speaking for him said, “He isn't available to create a comment on that today.”

Blaskovich and Vculek, along with Lisandro “Chando” Madrigal, helped pioneer the gourmet food truck movement in Sacramento about five years ago. Presently “about fifty new-age gourmet trucks are on the road in Sacramento County, along with one hundred fifty traditional catering-type trucks,” said director Paul Somerhausen.

In the beginning, food trucks in this city were a novelty, partly because of ongoing restrictive city ordinances that limit their parking times and prohibit them from entering certain locations. Still, when a window opened, curious crowds lined up for Blaskovich’s grilled cheese sandwiches at his Drewski’s Hot Rod Kitchen truck, for Vculek’s beef sliders at his MiniBurger truck, and for Madrigal’s Mexican food at his stand and truck.

The trio has been much busier since those days. Blasvovich added a second Hot Rod Kitchen truck and a catering arm, ran the food program for a year at downtown'south Republic Bar & Grill, opened and closed a cafe in Folsom, moved his central operation to McClellan Park, and opened the brick-and-mortar Drewski’s Pit Stop there.

Vculek rebranded his MiniBurger truck to Krush Burger and moved into his first brick-and-mortar store in early two thousand thirteen, in the CA Lottery headquarters in Sacramento. Since then, he's expanded into three more permanent stores in the Sacramento area, and one in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. It’s believed he “parked” the Krush Burger truck to focus on his growing restaurant chain.

Madrigal recently announced he's spent $800.000 on a fourth brick-and-mortar location , a 9.599-square-foot space that'll serve as the chain’s headquarters. It'll comprise a restaurant, office space and cooking facility that'll assistance jump-start future expansion, he said.
