Lady Buckeye created one of Columbus’ most popular confectionary brands with its unique stuffed buckeyes, and that brand took a hit yesterday when owner Alicia Hindman had her food cart and personal vehicle stolen.
According to Hindman, the cart was stored overnight in his car. The car (with a food cart inside) was stolen at 5 a.m. Sunday.
“I had back-to-back events so it was easier to keep it inside my car, I never dreamed someone would steal my whole car,” Hindman said.
The vehicle was stolen from the Crestview neighborhood of Clintonville, about a block from the Crest Gastropub.
The cart, which Hindman says weighs about 200 pounds, is branded Buckeye Lady on all sides. She said that if stripped of her signage, she will have plain white vinyl or stainless steel sides, depending on how much is removed. His car is a champagne colored 2018 Honda CRV. The car’s license plate is GDA966.
Although The Buckeye Lasy has a production facility and retail space, she noted that the cart was also a staple of her business.
“The cart is such an important part of my business, rented out for weddings, corporate events and farmers markets. I’m so devastated,” Hindman said.
If you think you saw his car or food cart, call the Columbus police at 614-645-4545.
