SHERMAN, Texas -- When it's cold outside, most people head indoors.

But what about Texomans who have to make a living outside?

Cesar and Juan Aldaco opened their Two Brothers Hibachi food truck less than a month ago. Perfect timing for our warm temperatures to plummet.

"I don't really feel so far that the cold has affected our business or anything," Juan said. "The only thing that I do realize that it has affected is my will to wake up in the mornings!"

The brothers say they've seen plenty of hungry folks, despite the cold.

"Honestly, yesterday was one of the coldest days that we've had, I believe, and it didn't affect our business at all," Juan said. "Actually we couldn't keep up with the amount of business that we had yesterday. I thought i was just going to go ahead and throw in the towel and quit that day."

A couple miles down the road outside Bon Appetit Y'all,  B Dawgz Street Doggz is also doing well.

"Generally, unless it's not raining or super cold like it is today, we still have plenty of business," owner Brad Wells said Wednesday. "People still like to get out and enjoy some good food and spend a little time at the food truck."

Wells said he's been in business for about two years, starting with a small hot dog trailer and now trying to keep the momentum going.

"We do a lot of inventing with new menu items to try and get them out... take pictures, put them on Facebook, put them all over social media, let them know what we are doing," Wells said. "We do a lot more of spicy stuff in the wintertime. It seems like people really want something with a little more heat to it, a little more flavor on the backside."

Two Brothers hibachi is also getting creative as the mercury drops.

"We do take food out to cars, and we are looking to hire two people to run the food ... to everyone's cars so they don't have to get out in this cold," Cesar Aldaco said. "

"We just have really awesome customers," Juan Aldaco added. "They're willing to wait a few extra minutes in the cold to get their food."
