In December of 2017, the newly formed company Lobster 207 reached out to us with a sales pitch. They wanted to provide top quality lobster to food trucks around the Country at a reasonable price with an incredibly easy ordering process. Lobster 207 was created by the newly formed lobster fishermen union in Maine. Their goal was to create a marketplace for lobster sales that came directly from the fishermen. For years they had dealt with lobster brokers and buyers that added to the price of the lobster. Their aim with Lobster 207 was to be the fishermen and the group that sold directly to the consumer.
Their goal and their mission was not only admirable, but also practical. However, we were concerned about their ability to provide great service to go along with their amazing prices. So the NFTA proposed a challenge. Service one of our longtime members (a member of the SoCal Mobile Food Vendors’ Assoc) and we’ll let our member decide. The Roll’n Lobster Truck reached out to Lobster 207 right away and was surprised by their efficiency, prices and quality of product. After a month of ordering, Pete Crest from Roll’n Lobster told me, “Lobster 207 has been amazing to work with, the pricing has been right on the mark, the customer service incredibly professional and after 4 different lobster vendors in 7 years we finally found a keeper and a company that is very easy to communicate with and goes out of there way to make our business a success.”
We want the companies we refer to take care of the food trucks that we service. We’re happy that Lobster 207 has been a company that responds quickly and provides a great product at a competitive price. We’re excited to continue working with them in 2019. Whether your a lobster truck or just want to incorporate lobster into your menu, Lobster 207 makes the process of ordering lobster easy and efficient.
