Big Potato Truck makes it to Jackson Inn


The Big Idaho Potato Truck made its way to Wilmington’s Jackson Inn last month as part of a promotional campaign for Stop Soldier Suicide, a national civilian not-for-profit organization dedicated to preventing active duty and Veteran suicide.

The Idaho Potato Commission donated $1 for every signature on the pledge board to Stop Soldier Suicide effort.

The truck is a 48-foot-long flatbed trailer featuring a 28-foot-long, 12-foot-wide and 11.5-foot-tall, 6-ton Idaho potato. It took nearly one year to build.

Fun fact: If it were a real baked potato, it would take two years and nine months to bake; it would also make 1.4 million French fries.
