The drive-thru is open seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Lauther said his team has been serving funnel cakes, turkey legs, chicken on a stick, corn dogs and chicken tenders to nearly 500 customers a day.
Customers stay in their cars to pick up their orders. Lauther has set up a Facebook page where he posts menus and photographs of his operation.
Lauther's business passed a health inspection earlier this month and got a permit to operate as a food truck establishment. He is marketing his concept, and his workers are taking orders on GrubHub and DoorDash.
Lauther, who grew up in Riverview and has been in the carnival business since he was a youth, said his operation also keeps his friends financially stable.
"It's like we can just live in the present again and not worry about what's going to happen tomorrow or in the future," Lauther told the Times.
