Richard is an architect by degree (Lawrence Technological University, Southfield, Michigan) who began his career in real estate development and architectural planning. In September of 2010 he created Mobile Cuisine Magazine to fill an information void he found when he began researching how to start a mobile hotdog cart in Chicago. Richard found that there was no central repository of mobile street food information anywhere on the internet, and with that, the idea for MCM was born.


  1. Hi – We are so excited to be in the top 10. Just a heads up our name is spelled Paradise Shave Ice there’s no “D” on the end of shave. Would it be too mich trouble to update it? We have a lot of Hawaiian fans and it is an insult to call it shaved ice.

    Paradise Shave Ice

  2. Paradise Shaved Ice – West Palm Beach, FL
    Is the best shaved ice I have EVER had. Also the MOST friendless people ever.
    I had the pleasure of enjoying a few of there shave ice at the 7th annual flags for a cure tournament..

      • ^clearly they meant *friendliest. Easy mistake.
        And I agree, Paradise Shaved Ice is incredibly friendly and their eggnog ice is AMAZE-BALLS!

        PAC Pastry’s truck is adorable and the woman who owns it is a hard working, kind person who is clearly passionate about what she does.

        And I of course have to say Saucy Stache is the bomb dot com, because that’s my truck! Lol!
        All of us are awesome! #teamskiplunchandtryeverything!
        Yay food!

  3. Wow… Drove by sauced up food truck a few weeks back for a quick bite and couldn’t believe how friendly the staff were and delicious the food was. This company deserves to be heard. Good luck sauced up!!

  4. Sauced Up Food Truck in Coral Springs, FL is by far the BEST food truck I have ever eaten at! From their Mac & cheese stuffed wings to their savory sliders, Sauced Up is a must try for any food truck fanatic. These guys know what they’re doing not only from a cooking stand point, but customer service stand point as well.

  5. Sauced Up all day! The stuffed wings are amazing and they keep adding new recipes and menu items. I have yet to try anything on the menu that wasn’t great. Cool looking truck too. Looks like that design must have taken forever!

  6. Dough Dough’s Donuts is by far, the BEST food truck out there! If you haven’t tried his loaded baked potato donuts, you don’t know what you’re missing. His hot vanilla glazed donuts are my next favorite.

  7. hands down, we are food truck paying customers. this is how myself and family relax. we owe it to “RED” dough dough donuts ha our vote. yes there are lot of other trucks that are good. but red puts the extra added touch with his cust, skills. we drove over 120 miles one way to stock his truck. all you food guys and gals keep it up please . we lov what ya do, thanks from this side of the truck.
