I saw the new signage for that start to go up. What an awesome idea!

Doug Roach

An absolutely inspired concept. Best of luck to the Johnson's and their clients.

Diane Wright

Great news!!!

Scott Harmon

Go Nick...Go Rochelle...Go Nick...Go Rochelle


Very cool. I love Durham!

Walker Teele

Go Nick! Such a cool and well-timed idea. Bravo!


I believe Asheville has a similar concept that has resulted in many retail food products.


Brilliant idea. But then Nick and Rochelle are brilliant people! Best of luck, guys!


WOW. Incredibly happy about this!!

Stella Smith

Fabulous! I have a small catering business and this is exactly what I need!

Steve Graff

This is absolutely brilliant! My mouth waters at the thoughts of the great food trucks that could come out of this. I'd personally love to see a truck selling hot malasadas, or one selling bhan mi (I probably botched the spelling).

Elizabeth Read

I wish them the best of luck. I hope that they can cooperate with the four county funded Piedmont Food and Ag Processing Center that is opening in Hillsborough in April. Durham Co is one of the partners in the project. You can read more about it in the Herald Sun article here:


Thanks so much for finding out what the activity was all about - what an exciting development for our neighborhood!

Marc R. Meyer

Please note that food trucks and caterers must comply with State food service establishment permitting requirements. In addition to State permits there are local business privilege license and zoning requirements. Call the health department at 560-7800 for food establishment information and the City of Durham at 560-1200 for business license and zoning requirements.

Rob Gillespie

If I remember correctly, the Piedmont Food and Ag Processing Center has a pricing structure that makes it a really poor choice for food trucks.

The center is great for farmers or the like that want to use the kitchen once a month to make jams or even once a week to make baked good or the like. When it comes to a place to use every day for 2 or 3 hours of prep time, though, the billable hours rack up quick, especially in comparison to the $500 a month or so that restaurants charge to be used as a commissary.

@Rob, Elizabeth: I am no expert on food truck commissaries, but would also add that with many food trucks getting 10mpg or so at best, a central Durham location may be more affordable to a Durham-based truck than driving to Hillsborough.

John Martin

Does anyone know the contact information for the owners?

Nick Hawthorn also owns Bull City Restoration. His contact info is on their website:
