Meet Moe Adams

Today we’d like to introduce you to Moe Adams.

Hi Moe, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
Crazy story. After being in the restaurant business for over two decades and managing to help others build their dreams Covid gave me the push that I didn’t want but needed. I’ve been catering on the side for years now it was time to make my menu the main attraction. I do breakfast all day. AhhHuevo is a concrete rose that is made up of familiar flavors and interesting takes on breakfast. In March, I had to close down the restaurant. It was crushing. I had to explain to 50 people that they’d no longer had a job. Even worse, I didn’t either. That’s when sadness fell in. Just like everyone else, I initially believed it would be just a temporary issue. Figured I’d make the most of it by enjoying my family since I’m usually always working but then the months passed. There was no end in sight. Gathered my gumption and figured it was time to make a move. I was in charge of my own destination. Applied for several jobs and was denied….. reason overqualified or not what we’re looking for. Looking back, I want to tell them thank you. I started working part-time to do research on my menu cost. Did research on finding a truck. Got lucky on a Craigslist ad and put together all the pennies to make it happen.

Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
The road was paved with obstacles and peril. The first day I had my truck, it ran out of gas at the gas station entrance!🤦🏾‍♂️ The second day another Foodtruck called the parking enforcement on me. The third-day fun continues; my first mate doesn’t show. Early oh and I had to grow thick skin!

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
Operations/General manager was my title. I’ve been in love with customer service from childhood. As an early teen, I’d go along with my mom & siblings to serve meals to the homeless. At was so gratis phone because we’d been in the same position before. You can have the best food in the world and not be served with a smile and it wouldn’t taste as good. Making an extra effort to continue the human interactions and going above and beyond is what I take great pride in. A what also sets me apart.

What were you like growing up?
I was always shy and a recluse growing up. We used to move around a lot when I was young so I learned how to let stuff go with ease. My humor developed as I grew. So some will say I was class clown.
