The Hello Kitty Cafe Truck accepts only credit/debit card payments – no cash.

The truck will also be in Sarasota Jan. 21 at The Mall at University Town Center by the mall entrance near Kona Grill from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

The bright pink truck, which is hard to miss and great for picture opportunities, has been traveling throughout the U.S. since 2014, participating in pop-up shops.

Hello Kitty, which was created by Yuku Shimizu in 1974 was originally targeted for teenage girls, but has since became a household name with the emergence of the ‘kawaii’ culture. Originating in Japan, Hello Kitty turned into a worldwide phenomenon.
