Serial Entrepreneur Starts First Psychedelic Food Truck

April 29, 2021 13:35:26

Cynthia Cummings, a serial entrepreneur who is constantly redefining herself, is doing it again Cummings, who is always ready for a new adventure, recently set up a food truck in Royal Bay, British Columbia. The food truck has something for everyone, from juicy burgers and greasy fries to healthy wraps.

Cummings has more than a decade’s worth of experience in this area, having run hot dog stands and food trucks for the nightclub crowds for more than 15 years in Toronto. She thought of setting up a food truck after observing that many individuals in the West Shore preferred going to and eating at outdoor gathering spaces as opposed to having indoor meals.

The food truck, dubbed the Funky Food Truck, is a psychedelic eatery that’s hippie-themed. Cummings obtained permits to operate in various municipalities, from Victoria to Nanaimo. However, instead of moving around, she prefers to stick close to the Royal Bay venue, a gravel parking lot, almost full-time. This is, of course, with the exception of holiday weekends, when she may move to locations near the beach because she’s likely to get more customers.

The Funky Food Truck shares its venue with a coffee drive-thru housed in a shipping container, which is owned and operated by Sequoia Coffee. The two businesses operate opposite Royal Bay High. From the lot, one can enjoy a view of the Salish Sea in all its grandeur while also relishing a delicious meal.

The Royal Bay area is slowly developing, with some homes already built and plans underway to build more. The area’s next phase of development includes flagship retail stores and commercial areas.

In addition to her food truck business, Cummings also works to support military veterans suffering from PTSD at a resort located in the Philippines. Cummings and her husband, Wayne, who had built a career in the Canadian military, had a son, Kevin, who had been diagnosed with PTSD. Kevin committed suicide in 2011, which changed the couple’s lives completely. As a result, they moved to the Philippines and, while trying to come to terms with the death of their son, they built a retreat of sorts for military personnel struggling with PTSD.

In addition, the couple also runs and owns a not-for-profit store called Nifty Thrifty, whose profits are used to directly benefit the post-traumatic stress disorder therapy program at their resort. The store accepts gently used donations, which include household items and women’s and men’s shoes and clothing.

While Cummings is looking at a psychedelic food truck, many firms such as Pure Extracts Technologies Corp. (CSE: PULL) (OTC: PRXTF) are pivoting towards the commercialization of psychedelic medicines targeting the mental health space so that these potent substances can only be used in a medically approved way.
