Best Food Truck Builder:Mark Palm
Behind every successful food truck is a handyman or woman with some serious kitchen-building skills. Locally, that person is Mark Palm, whose Plymouth-based Chameleon Concessions has outfitted many Twin Cities food trucks, including Hola Arepa, AZ Canteen, and World Street Kitchen—and many more across the country. He’ll soon open Palm Kitchens, a state-of-the-art facility that will not only expand his truck-building business but include 24/7/365 commercial kitchen space for food truckers and a heated yard where they can park and vend come winter. Because what’s more North than a food truck rally in January?
