Two Food Truck Kickstarter Projects to Keep an Eye On


We were recently made aware of two separate food truck projects on Kickstarter we wanted to share.

Haute Sausage – Chicago, IL

Find the kickstarter project page <here> 

The Haute Sausage Food truck needs $50K to be one of the first kitchen on wheels food trucks in Chicago.

Dear fans of Chicago food trucks.  We are the thickest, meatiest juiciest food truck in the city.  With the new law that passed we are looking to invest in a seriously functional kitchen on wheels…. and these babies cost money.  We can pick one up for about $50K.  With your help we can make this happen sooner rather than later.  Your donation gets you membership in the Haute Club – which means we will reward you with our sausage.  Effectively we will finance this purchase with pre-purchased sausages by our fans.

At the time of this post the project has had $290 in donations made toward their $50,000 goal.

The deadline for this project is: August 31, 2012

To donate, find the kickstarter project page <here>

Two Blokes and a Bus – Bloomington, IL

Bloomington has the greatest number of restaurants per capita in the United States. That may sound like an Epicurean’s dream – but only until you take a good look at the topography of our little burg. Overrun by the bland and featureless figures, Bloomington is a study in gastronomic conformity.  For the growing segment of the population that craves artisanal, organic and, most importantly, sustainable, local fare – the options are woefully few.

That’s where we hope to come in. We’d like to offer EVERYONE the choice of wholesome, well-prepared food that will delight the taste buds and spark the imagination without breaking the bank.  By drawing from our rich agricultural roots and contracting with local producers whenever possible, we’ll provide good food at a low cost, democratizing access to quality fare and hopefully catalyzing a change in taste along the way.

Street food has been a vibrant aspect of culture throughout history. In countries around the world, people from all walks of life are fueled by tasty, inexpensive bites from market stalls, carts and roadside stands

Your support will assist these much needed purchases:

  • Exhaust Hood
  • Flattop griddle
  • Fryer
  • Refrigeration for bus and commissary
  • Generator
  • Freezer
  • 3 basin sink
  • Water tanks and pump

At the time of this post the project has had $10,705 in donations made toward their $15,000 goal.

The deadline for this project is: August 23, 2012

About the Author:

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.
