Pork In The Road


One of the things I like the most about doing this blog is it gives me the ability to tell a story. Over the years I have become more interested in other people’s stories and journey’s. Yes we all need food to live but there are also people who’s relationship with food goes a step deeper. They are food truck owners, farmers, chefs, butchers and what they all have in common is their desire to share, learn, risk and create a life and business centered around their love of food. My aim is to take a closer look at these souls who are willing to put everything on the line to pursue their dream. I want to share their journey into entrepreneurship so we can learn and be motivated by these individuals and maybe somehow be a part of their journey.

The first person I sat down with in this series was Christian Thompson of Durham, North Carolina. Christian was born in the Triangle Area but spent most of his youth in Kansas where he developed a life long relationship with food. After holding every position in a restaurant from dishwasher to manager, Christian is driven to add Owner/Entrepreneur to the list. His journey starts here, out of the back of a yellow truck once used to manage fire and rescue operations. The Chevy Step-van will have its second lease on life as a food truck called Pork in the Road, focusing on serving porky goodness.
