Client Review

George and his team did a superb job on our new food truck. We own two Mediterranean restaurants in Wake Forest and recently decided to go into the food truck business as well. George came highly recommended by several people we know and we couldn’t be happier that we chose his company. When we bought our food truck it was nothing more than a shell. We brought it to George he and his team helped us to illustrate exactly how we wanted our food truck to look in the end. George is amazing he’s very thorough and knowledgeable ,there’s pretty much nothing he can’t do. He and his team were so nice and friendly & helpful, always available to take our calls ,patient enough to answer our daily questions and reassure us that our finished product would exceed our expectations. We were not disappointed! George and his team built everything from the ground up and our food truck looks incredible!! Everywhere we go we get compliments on our truck and people stop to ask us who built our truck!! It looks amazing !!! George put so many extras & had so many fantastic innovative ideas to make our food truck standout. And that it does! George really IS the jack of all trades’s!!!!
Many Thanks!!
