"Sometimes they tell me I'm making them gain weight, and I tell them don't blame us," said former Delaware trooper Joe Thuet.

NEWPORT, Delaware (WPVI) -- Joe Thuet started Joey T's food truck about six months ago and business has been booming.

"Sometimes they tell me I'm making them gain weight, and I tell them don't blame us, don't blame Joey T's on your addiction," said Thuet.

After retiring as a trooper, Joey wanted to try his hand at acting. He landed a few small stand-in roles in some films but that's been hindered due to the pandemic.

He figured with his time off, what better time to open up a food truck.

He sells breakfast food; sausage, egg, and cheese sandwiches are his most popular item.

"They get a taste of it, they gotta come back," says Thuet's father, Hubert.

Joey T's is located at 1401 East Newport Pike in Newport, Delaware.
