Food Truck “Betty” Finds Home Base

Hailey’s popular plant-based food truck is moving from behind the wheel to behind the counter. The Wylde Beet’s food truck “Betty,” often spotted roaming the streets of Hailey, has settled on a home base where they can provide a warm and inviting space offering interesting, nourishing, and affordable food. The menu will continue to consist of fully plant-based options like the popular Coconut Curry Bowl, Jackfruit Tacos, Beet Burger, and more. However, with a bigger kitchen a full menu will also be available, and the kitchen will rotate specials, grab n’ go items, more baked goods, and a full coffee and espresso bar. Stay tuned … the opening date is coming soon.
