ROME, N.Y. - Sarita's Food Truck has served locals for about seven years now at fairs and events, but this weekend, Sarita's is headed to Bethel Woods to serve thousands of people for Woodstock's 50th anniversary concert.

Sarita's will be one of four trucks at the event, serving Spanish food with an American twist.

Brianna House is the manager of Sarita's and she is enthusiastic about spending her weekend serving hungry concert goers.

"This has come such a long way, we've been at smaller events and now we're at these huge events and I can't even fathom how I feel about it," House said. "I'm excited, I love working big events and I like the huge ones where we're gone and we're camping and you get to go meet so many new people and its like amazing and then you get to see other food trucks and try their food and it's just super fun."

Sarita Ruiz is the owner of the food truck. Since she began her food truck business about seven years ago, her daughter, Kassidee Burgess, has been by her side, and she puts in a lot of hard work.

"You have to be able to do almost everything if you want to work in a food truck," Burgess said. "You have to be able to cook the food, serve the food, work the register."

Burgess is 14 years old and she says working on the food truck has taught her a lot of valuable skills.

"It's a great way to learn and it's great to put on a resume in the near future, and to learn about business and food preparation and to get you ready for life," Burgess said.

The food truck will also be at the New York State Fair this year.
