Lisa Nichols, owner and operator of the truck, wakes up about 4 a.m. each morning to start cooking in preparation for the day. She doesn't stop until 12:45 p.m. — then she returns to her busy life as a mother and wife.

Nichols typically parks the truck near Lemone Industrial Boulevard in the mornings and moves to locations downtown during lunchtime.
