CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (KFVS) - A Heartland woman is living out her late husband’s dream of running a hot dog cart, and that’s not all.

Suzana Long, the owner of Turk Dawgs, is hosting Cape Girardeau’s first Winter Food Truck Rally.

The event will be held at Arena Park on Saturday, November 5 at 11 a.m.

Long says each truck will offer a different kind of food.

“So we’ve rented out these couple pavilions here at arena park and we’re planning on having the first food truck rally in Cape,” she said. “We’ve had a small one in Jackson this whole time, and the farmer’s market has been going on here, but that’s all wrapping up at the end of October, so we’re looking forward to putting on a local food truck show for everyone in Cape.”

Long also said right now can be a challenging time for small businesses like hers because of the rise of food costs.

However, she is not letting this get in the way of keeping her from keeping her hot dog cart prices consistent.

Long believes the food truck community plays a vital role in keeping each other in business, which is something she experienced when she first started her business back in April.

She hopes she will be able to upgrade from a hot dog cart to a food truck.
