Food Truck Invasion brings food, family, community

November 10, 2016

Food Truck Invasion is in Wellington every Thursday from 5 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., along with a free outdoor concert.


The invasion offers over 20 different food trucks to choose from, but each truck brings with it something that sets them apart as well as an owner and workers with a unique story.


Quintilis Hakeem is a part of the Food Junkies team, a food truck which is family owned and operated, and was one of the first food trucks in South Florida, according to Hakeem.


When they go to different communities, they bring with them a fresh product and hospitality.


After hanging out with the family, head on over to Munchie's Snack Shack Food Truck, which has won best food truck burger and best food truck in Palm Beach County.


They offer anything from a basic burger with cheese to one with mashed potatoes and bacon, to caramelized onions and cheddar cheese. Owner and Chef Lee Asen, who graduated from the Art Institute in Fort Lauderdale, said that everything is made fresh to order.


Think Greek provides authentic Greek-style food. Rosanne Leo and her wife Stella Koufalis are the owners of this truck. Together, they cook using only family recipes, making everything from scratch.


They take pride in the freshness of their food and the fact that they are able to share their Greek heritage. Both agreed that having the food truck allows them to never get bored and to reach more people.


Their route covers a 100 mile radius, stretching from Vero Beach down to Parkland and west to Okeechobee and Clewiston. Putting smiles on people's faces and hearing them say how awesome the food is, is what drives and motivates them.


"The event brings them, not just their trucks, but the people that are here," said Chad Allen, a South Florida local attending with friends.
