Since opening STUFFED! in June 2013, Alex Gould and his team have been serving up comic book-themed burgers, mac n’ cheese, and tots to San Diego. He took some time to answer our burning questions about the food truck business for SDFT.
Why did you open a food truck?
I’ve always wanted to go out on my own and be my own boss. After moving to San Diego and interviewing with a handful of different restaurant groups, I decided to take a different route and do my own thing.
What did you do before you had the food truck?
After graduating from Johnson & Wales in RI, I spent about 10 years managing restaurants. I managed restaurants in Philadelphia with the Starr Restaurant Organization.
How would you describe your food?
Elevated comfort food.
What makes your truck awesome?
Our team–we are relentless and make eating fun! We’re a comic book themed truck that serves ridiculous burgers! We only use grass fed and organic meat to ensure everything we put out is as pure as it can be!
