Steel City Samiches Kickstarts for truck
Shawn, Tony and Matt Lang are taking their Indiana, Pa., brick-and-mortar sandwich shop on the road. Or they're hoping to, anyway. The brothers behind Steel City Samiches have launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the $50,000 project.
The crew behind the 6-year-old shop that's been selling to university kids and the community believe their fry-topped sandwiches should be more widely available. They include Keystone Klash, with Philly cheesesteak meat, cheese sauce and egg, or the Banger, with fried kielbasa, bacon, American cheese and egg.
Check out Kickstarter.com and look up "Steel City Samich Truck." There are 25 days to fund them.
