Jake Crocker, who owns West Main Street joints Lady N’awlins Cajun Cafe and F.W. Sullivan’s, plans to launch TurnUp Taxi next month at his Fredericksburg Sullivan’s location.
The biodiesel taxi fleet will include two Volkswagen Passats, according to the report, and will sit in the parking lot at Sullivan’s.
Crocker plans to expand the service to Richmond and Northern Virginia.
In 2010, brothers Jeff and Joey Anderson started BioTaxi, which runs on cooking oil from local restaurants. They’ve expanded to four cars and 10 drivers and last year launched BioRide for larger group travel.
