Food trucks never die — they just get rebranded. Such is the case with Gusto's Italian Food Truck, anyway, famous for its oddly compelling pizza cones. Owner Jim Chamoff, who is also the head of Portland bakery Izzy's Cheesecake, sold Gusto's in November 2015; new owner Taylor Witham hopes to hit the streets under the name Ziggy's by February or March, according to her office manager.

In a Facebook post about the concept change, Ziggy's said it "will feature a few items from the previous menu as well as some new and exciting tidbits." In response to a question about pizza cones, the company said it was "searching for a cone supplier because the previous one is no longer available." In a case of the strange ways in which social media works, another person commented, "I'm the warehouse manager @ Micucci Wholesale Foods on Riverside Street....Come by & we will hook you up with the same pizza cones!" Crisis averted, coneheads.
