    It wasn’t by choice that Louisville’s Chef Steve Higdon closed his Urban Kitchen food truck in 2013, but rather through unfortunate circumstances. And when two faithful Urban Kitchen patrons, Wil Limoges and Charlie Neal, found out about the demise of their favorite mobile restaurant, they contacted Higdon in an effort to revive one of the city’s most delicious traveling vendors. And just like that, the Kentucky Taco Company was set into action.

    Earlier this year we spoke with the three behind this delicious new project and got the full scoop on the business and the original recipes that were formerly served by Urban Kitchen. The Kentucky Taco Company’s initial business plan was to approach the food business differently and plant roots in a permanent venue on Frankfort Avenue rather than setting up shop in another food truck. However, after fundraising for the business, there were still several unseen hurtles in the way of making this dream a reality.

    But Limoges, Neal and Higdon still remained faithful to their dream of fulfilling the lives of every Louisvillian with their deliciously unique tacos. And by working diligently for nearly a year to bring their business to life, their efforts have finally paid off in the form an exciting new and improved taco truck.

    “We looked at several different places but none of them seemed like a good fit for what we really wanted,” explains Limoges about finding a location for the restaurant. “We changed our mind on a whim after finding the truck.”

    The new food truck, which they found listed on Craigslist by a couple from Eastern Kentucky, has previously been operated as a food vendor in Florida and is fully equipped with all of the necessary kitchen materials.

    Over the course of planning this business, the Kentucky Taco Company’s menu has changed. Several options have been removed, but several new options have also been added. And to make sure everyone will be happy with the choices, the guys behind the business plan to do a test run with the new menu in early January before rolling out for business later that month.

    And once the truck officially hits the streets, you’ll be able to find it all over the city. Limoges says he hopes to regularly park in the Clifton Neighborhood, the Highlands and Downtown along with several upcoming local outdoor events.
