Bucket and Rope Hack Lets Chef Deliver Her Famous Sandwiches to Dedicated Customers During Lockdown
Chef Kara Haltiwanger won’t let the coronavirus shutdown get between her sandwiches and customers
The sandwiches and food chef Kara Haltiwanger makes have some serious devotees.
She is a chef and caterer in Hollywood, California who has faced financial stress since the coronavirus hit.
She simply cannot do her regular business.
Haltiwanger has come up with an idea that helps supplement her income.
You might call it a literal drop in the bucket.
Spectrum 1’s Itay Hod shot and produced this great story.
Making use of gravity
He shows how Haltiwanger cooks up her delicious sandwiches in her 4th story apartment and then drops them down to hungry customers from outside her fire escape.
Even she thought this was a crazy idea
She told Hod, “The first time I did it, it was extremely exhilarating and crazy because it was very experimental. I was like, am I really going to drop a bucket off a fire escape and is that really going to work?”
It really, really did!
On average, she sells out: 50 sandwiches in three hours, all delivered by that red plastic pail.

Has her system down
Customers order by email and receive strict marching orders to be quiet and not to talk to anyone. Sounds like that is the least they are willing to do to get Kara’s delicious food.
