Siblings split their business: Restaurant is hers, food truck is his

Rebecca Gable and her brother Kevin Amos have split their Garden of Eatin’ business.

You can still get Garden of Eatin’s popular soups, sandwiches and comfort food dishes.

You just can’t get them out of the food truck anymore.

Rebecca and Chris Gable, who own the brick-and-mortar Garden of Eatin’ restaurant at 612 E. Douglas have ended their business partnership with Kevin Amos, Rebecca’s brother. The three opened the Garden of Eatin’ food truck in August 2015 followed by the restaurant in April 2016.

“We decided to divide and conquer,” Rebecca Gable said. “Kevin wants the food truck, and I love the restaurant and catering business. It just made more sense because I don’t love the food truck.”

Kevin Amos is remodeling the food truck, a 24-foot pull behind camper that previously was painted in an orange, purple and teal motif, and plans to open later this summer it as something else. But he said he’s not ready yet to share details.

Meanwhile, Rebecca is putting her attention on the restaurant and working on expanding her catering business. Eventually, she said, she’d like to open the restaurant regularly for lunch and dinner.

For now, she’s open 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesdays through Saturdays.

I’ll keep you posted on Kevin Amos’ new business.
