Concessionaire sets up in church lot

Sean Miller was working in Florida when he was told he needed to return home to Southern Indiana due to the start of the quarantine period caused by COVID-19. Miller owns Miller Foods, a concession trailer service that travels to different states, serving food at fairs, festivals and other large events.
Initially when he returned to his hometown of Mauckport, Miller was out of work because events haven’t been allowed to take place amid the COVID-19 pandemic. However, after sharing that news with people in his community, the parking lot of New Hope Wesleyan Church in Corydon was offered as a place for Miller to set up his stand and sell food.
Chicken strips, corn dogs, Polish and Italian sausages, Philly steaks, tenderloins, hamburgers, cheeseburgers, hot dogs, fries, tator tots and onion rings are sold at the stand. Miller hopes to add funnel cakes to the offering if he sees a want for them from customers.
Miller began selling food on May 7 and plans to stay located at the church until the end of the month. Then, he will discuss what to do moving forward after that.
The concession trailer sells food until 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday, except for Wednesdays, when Miller closes at 6 p.m. for the church to host its Bible study. Also, Miller said the stand will not sell food on Sundays out of respect to the church for allowing him to use its parking lot.
Miller also said his concession stand team is willing to deliver, free of charge, to local businesses in the area. To place an order, call 812-968-9459 or 317-213-8228.
“This is our family business that has been running for 100 years,” Miller said. “I can’t say enough how grateful I am to the church and congregation for letting us be here and to the community for keeping food on my family’s table during this time.”
