Dusty Buns Competitors To The Rescue

Fresno -

A Fresno restaurant on wheels has a blown engine that will require many meals to be sold to get it fixed.  But competitors of Dusty Buns are joining forces to help with the unexpected tab.

The Dusty Buns bistro bus is in the shop at Fresno Catering with a blown engine.  "We already tried rebuilding that one this year so we know we have to move on to the next stop," said Dusty Buns owner Dustin Stewart. 

In a few days the green machine should be as good as new.  Then there's the repair bill that owner Dustin Stewart believes will range between three–to–six thousand dollars.

One of his competitors at Fresno Brewery, Ephiram Bosse heard about Dustin's bad luck and decided to help. Ephiram and Dustin have been friends for less than a year.   But he saw a friend in need and decided to do what restaurant people do best, throw a party and raise some money.

"They're not my competition.   We kind of take the approach at least here we're all kind of in this together.   So what's good for them is good for us," said Bosse. 

Fresno Brewery is hosting a fund raiser Monday night.  Other local businesses are donating food, beer and even a bicycle to be auctioned.   "I didn't expect that to happen but I think people are putting their minds together on how we can stay in business and keep doing what were doing for Fresno," said Dustin Stewart. 

In the meantime Dusty Buns is relying on the lunch box and a tent to help peddle his sandwiches. Saturday he has an event in Clovis that requires a lunch truck.  A competitor is letting Dustin borrow his.    

Monday night's fund raiser at Fresno Brewery on the Fulton Mall begins at 7:30.   The public is invited.
