Discover the stories behind Kansas City's delicious and diverse fleet of food trucks.
Kansas City's claim to food fame has come from a long-standing tradition of stellar barbeque. As the city continues to grow and evolve, so does the food scene. Budding entrepreneurs and foodies have launched innovative food trucks that deliver trendy and worldly dishes to the community, all from kitchens on wheels.
Chrissy Nucum cooks up decades-old family recipes to offer customers authentic, scratch-made Filipino fare. Kim Niebaum and Michelle Ferguson left cushy office jobs to own and run Coffee Cake KC. Brandon Simpson was a piano salesman before he launched one of Kansas City's first food trucks, Jazzy B's.
In this book, explore the stories behind many of these small businesses, and the love they pour into their recipes. Each food truck owner shares tales of their struggles and victories, and what made them take the leap to start their own mobile food businesses. They even give readers exclusive recipes that keep their customers coming back for more.
