Dothan food truck business having success despite opening during pandemic


DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Since the start of the pandemic, restaurants have struggled.

Many have switched takeout and delivery, and some are doing dine-in with guidelines.

With that being said, food truck and walkup businesses have seen more customers.

“We actually opened at the height of the pandemic, and we started with our building,” SayIt Hotdogs owner Lisha Walker said. “It was helpful that we were a walkup establishment because people were able to walk up get their food and go.”

SayIt Hotdogs also has a food truck, and Walker said that they’ve had a lot of businesses call them to deliver so employees don’t have to go out.

“Some of the businesses that are trying to make sure their workers can get food and not have to worry about being exposed,” Walker said. “So it’s really been helpful because it allows people to have another option instead of going into dine-in.”

Walker said that sales have been good.

“I think a lot of it has to do with people being able to walk up get their food and then we have an outdoor seating area where they can if they choose to sit there,” Walker said.

SayIt is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
