A new food truck is getting ready to hit the streets of Duluth after reaching their fundraising goal on Thursday.
Owners Nick Arntz and Elyse Wachendorf met in 2012 while working in the Twin Cities corporate world. They say a passion for new adventures and a desire for a change of pace from the big city sent them up to Duluth.
Their Kickstarter campaign raised over $10,000 in two weeks for their Happy Wanderer food truck. Arntz and Wachendorf say they hope to be serving specialty egg rolls by July 21.
"Who doesn't love an egg roll?" Artnz asks in the promotion video on Kickstarter. "You can put just about anything you want in an egg roll, so we'll make them delicious and hot for you, and we can't wait to see you soon."
A sampling of their menu includes a wild rice and mushroom egg roll, buffalo chicken egg roll, mini mozzarella egg rolls, and an apple pie egg roll.
