“Ain’t much if it ain’t Dutch,” is the catchy catch phrase for Clinton’s new food truck restaurant. The owners of Dutch’s Oven Street Food, Dave Holland and his wife, Ruth Holland, raised eight children. Holland says he was a food service specialist in the army, and his wife is a great cook. They thrive on fast, friendly service and great food. Dutch’s Oven Street Food truck contains a one-of-a-kind mobile kitchen trailer, and their original address was 1106 Industrial Park Drive in Clinton. Now after months of preparation, they are stationed in a new location, and are ready for their debut.
The grand opening for Dutch’s Oven is Monday, Feb 12. Holland says that after a previous town meeting, Mayor Phil Fisher granted Holland and his wife permission to operate their food truck within the city limits. The new location will be on east Northside Drive in front of Dollar General, adjacent to the bowling alley Indian Lanes.
“This will be a unique experience in Clinton.” Holland says that owning a food truck is not an inexpensive venture, and business owners must “do their homework.” There will be long hours, health inspections, and city ordinances. Holland says that as their business progresses with feedback from the community customers can expect additions to the menu, “that the Clinton public will want.”
Starting Monday, February 12, Dutch’s Oven will serve breakfast and lunch to hungry customers. The restaurant will be open all week from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. Holland says everyone will receive a 10% discount with their first order.
