Drewski's to expand with second food truck, new brick and mortar cafe

Here's a tip of the chef's toque to the Munchie Musings blog, which first reported this news. Drewski's Hot Rod Kitchen, the popular local food truck, is in the midst of a significant expansion mode. Look for a second Drewski's truck to hit the road in about eight weeks, says owner Andrew Blaskovich. He purchased the GMC truck on Friday, which is now undergoing a complete overhaul to build a kitchen and all the necessary food truck features.

"It's going to be completely all new on the inside," said Blaskovich. "I get to design the kitchen the way I want and maybe we'll be adding a broiler, so we can play with different ideas on the menu. Either way, it's going to be dope."

Blaskovich is also eyeing the opening of his second brick-and-mortar location with Lil Drewski's. This eatery will be located in a Folsom office park near Iron Point Rd., and aiming for a mid-February opening. It's a small spot - just about 1,000 square feet total - and will operate like a quick service cafe. Along with some of Drewski's signature grilled sandwiches, Lil Drewski's will offer coffee drinks, smoothies, salads and grab-and-go items.

"This is strictly my spot," said Blaskovich, who also runs a Drewski's inside the downtown sports bar Republic. "I'm also looking to hire new employees for the trucks and cafe. I really need an assitant."
