CORNWALL, Ontario – Séguin Patate staff were happy to serve locals from the company’s new mobile chip truck during Super Bowl LIV on Sunday, Feb. 2.

In partnership with La Maison Tavern, where many gathered to watch the annual football championship, swarms of sports fans grabbed their favourite poutines and burgers from a special express menu offered through the truck between 4 p.m. and the half-time show.

“It was our first time using the truck and revealing it to the community,” said Owner Jason Shoot. “The truck is (now) available to do events, parties and different functions.”

Shoot’s wife Melanie added that a permanent second location of the mobile unit will be unveiled some time in May, with the original location on Marlborough St. N set to reopen in early April.

“We want people to get excited that as of May there will be (another) permanent location to be disclosed,” she said.

The Shoots joked that the new truck is a bit more rock & roll than the current location, mostly people it rocks and rolls on the road. Painted black with a fresh logo, the truck marks a new step towards expanding, which is something Shoot has been looking forward to since becoming Owner in 2019. The truck is also symbolic in that it is returning to the company’s original method of service: on the road.

Anyone interested in more information about the new chip truck can reach Shoot at 613-362-6768 and can visit Séguin Patate on Facebook here.
