August 2013: We were hosting a family from Victoria, Texas on our family’s +20th missions
trip to Belize. Turns out they run TK’s Trailer Rentals, renting ~80 fully-loaded mobile trailers
in the oil fields of Texas (if you’re in the market for that kind of thing--give them a call at
They also bought two old food trucks with the intention of launching a food service. But with
all they could handle on the trailer side, the Food Trucks sat idle.
I grew more and more intrigued by those idle food trucks. Kim and I were fascinated by the
food truck craze, gorging ourselves on every food truck TV show on the air.
Ideas started flying. By September we were knee-deep in planning. By October I received
iPhone video clips of the trucks—but the images were so scrambled they looked more like
the first transmissions from the moon. I couldn’t see anything, but I had faith in what I saw!
By now obsessed, I flew down to check out the region with my oldest son, Daniel. Everything
went great with one exception: The trucks were a rusted mess.
Undeterred, we plowed ahead!
We were struck by the countryside and the people we met… the heartland of America… Where
integrity isn’t just a word, it’s a personal commitment. And when you give your word?
It’s as good as done.
Daniel likened the area to the old gold rush boom towns. And Boom Town Food Trucks was born.
