The Stories

We are LurnyD’s Grille Food Truck, the first gourmet food truck of its kind to hit the streets of Jackson, Mississippi. My wife and business partner, Betsy opened our food truck in October 2012. In March of 2012, I was at a crossroad in my life with 2 business plans in hand, one to take over a retail store that I had managed for 6 years and the other to open a gourmet food truck. Betsy and I love cooking and are self-proclaimed foodies. We both felt that the food truck was the best decision and went all in. And now 2 ½ years later, we feel that we not only add to the MS Creative Economy, but we play a major role in bringing a new food truck culture to the state. Food trucks are sweeping the nation and since we’ve been in business we’ve seen a vast increase in the metro area, as well as around the state. Our passion is unique, creative cooking with an ever changing, evolving menu. We have loyal customers on all social media platforms that follow us, which in turn increases revenue for the state. We can be seen at major events in the Jackson/Metro area, local events in Fondren, Belhaven and Midtown as well as Smith Park Downtown. The lure of food trucks is a major plus for tourism...
