On July 12th while bringing tasty cheese to the people of Northern California, we received some shocking news: our mini VW cheese sampling buses had been stolen in the Sacramento area, along with their trailer and the Daddy Loaf truck which hauls the buses from city to city. Two days later, we learned that the trailer and Daddy Loaf truck had been recovered by police, but were severely burned. We were devastated to hear this news, but the Manteca Police remained hopeful that they’d be able to find our sweet little buses. Thankfully, we were notified by the authorities late on Monday night that our three Baby Loaf buses had been found in near-perfect condition!
We could not be happier to have our buses back! We’re so incredibly thankful for the efforts of the police and investigators who worked tirelessly over the past few days to recover our buses, as well as our amazing loyal fans and media outlets who helped spread the word and collect helpful tips. Our buses are on their way back to Oregon, and will be resting and recovering from a very traumatic few days. Thanks again for all of your support the past few days – we have the best fans in the world!
Lots of loaf,
The Tillamook Team
