Happy trails, Schoenhals. We’ll miss your Cake Faces. Two food truckers have announced recently their plans to park.

One is Cake Face Bake Shop, whose very nice owners Summer and Dave Schoenhals, are moving to Oregon for a job opportunity. (They explained the circumstances on their Facebook wall.)

The couple is selling the truck, an 18 x 8 upgrade they bought in August. They’ve posted an ad offering the truck and all of its contents for sale on Craigslist. I’ll miss these two, who have been a happy and constant presence on Wichita’s food truck scene since the very beginning. I’ll also miss their delicious food.

Also, the food truckers who last summer bought the Schoenhals original rig also are closing up. Joseph and Cherre Nestelroad, who last fall opened a pizza food truck called The Rolling Dough, posted last week on the truck’s Facebook wall said that they have too much going on in their lives, especially with two small children, to keep the business going. The post indicated that the couple was open to considering giving it another go when their kids are older.
