Ferndale-based vegan eatery GreenSpace Cafe is about to hit the road. The owners announced over the weekend that they are launching a food truck this summer. The new rolling restaurant is expected to arrive in June.
GreenSpace cafe was founded in 2015 by cardiologist Joel Kahn and his son Daniel. It offers a plant-based menu with an extensive list of gluten-free, soy-free, nut-free, and oil-free dishes.
A rep for the restaurant tells Eater that the truck just went into production and the menu is still being developed, but customers can expect health-conscious organic street food.
“Although people travel from all over the Midwest to dine with us, we have a passion to bring our brand to the tri-county area to spread great eats and great awareness of the role of food as a healing force,” Joel Kahn says in a statement to Eater. “The truck will be a fun experience for all involved.”
While traditionally restaurants have started out as food trucks before going brick-and-mortar, many establishments are starting to develop mobile businesses. Last fall, burger mini chain Moo Cluck Moo abandoned its full-scale restaurants in favor of food trucks and Louisiana Creole Gumbo recently received a grant to launch a small fleet of mobile restaurants.
