A great man & a champion in the BBQ field. He will be missed. Billious
Hands down, the best BBq in Memphis or anywhere . R.I.P.
I have had these and they are fabulous! Worth every penny.i was one of those who ordered that super busy holiday period. I will be again!
My first job was with Corky's. I remember Don very well. He was good to his employees. Even re-hiring someone that was fired by a manager when that employee came back and expressed his dissatisfaction with the way things happened. He also gave us Christmas bonuses even though he (from what I understand) was of the Jewish faith. God bless his family.
I think that it is great for an entrepreneur to be able to identify a target market (vegans/vegetarians) and pull together their many resources (finding a ready made food truck) to make it happen. It is not only vital to the success of the business but also the targeted customer that the food truck operator had completed ample research in order to have the ability to cater to that particular customer.
This usually leads the customer to believe "hey, this food truck was made just for me", which allows for a lifetime customer and social media follower.
A Sad day, indeed. I used to work for the family's furniture store, "Donald Furniture Store" back I the early 1970s and have to say Don was always the gentleman, even at that young age. He will truly be missed.
R. I. P. : DON PELTS. YOU WERE ALWAYS A GENTLEMAN.
So sad to hear this when I woke up this morning. I had the pleasure of growing up next door to Don and Linda. Don was sometimes the wackiest guy you'd ever meet, but in a good way. Either with an off-color joke, the occasional late evening visit to our house in his boxer shorts for a short conversation, or just being silly to entertain us kids. He always encouraged me to follow my dreams and be happy. I could go on and on, but just wanted to say we lost a great Memphian and awesome human being.
