In 2012, they created Slidin’ Dirty, a food truck that quickly became popular throughout the Capital Region.
In 2013, their signature Dirty Asian slider won the judges' choice award at the Albany Wine & Dine for the Arts Festival.
In 2014, they opened their first Slidin' Dirty bricks-and-mortar location, at 9 First Street in downtown Troy. It has been a hit with customers since Day 1.
Today, construction officially began on their second restaurant, at 512 State Street in Schenectady, part of Sequence Development’s rehabilitation of the former Foster Hotel complex. A late March-early April opening is projected. Sequence also was involved in building out the Troy venue.
“Tim and Brooke and the whole Slidin' Dirty team are the best tenants imaginable,” Sequence president Jeffrey Buell said at the time the Schenectady project was revealed. “They work hard, put out an awesome and consistent product, and make sure that everyone has a great time. We believe they will be hugely successful in Schenectady and add something new to a very dynamic restaurant scene. “
And, said Taney, "When Brooke and I opened our first restaurant our instincts told us that Troy was the right fit. Troy was experiencing a renaissance that we wanted to be part of, it was becoming a top destination in the area and we felt Slidin’ Dirty was a perfect match. Now, our instincts tell us the exact same thing about Schenectady.”
