Greensboro, NC -- Generators, mini fridges - it's not your conventional kitchen but it works.
In a lime green truck, magic is happening.
Nick Bankoff and his buddies are launching their grub into the food truck world.
"This is our third event, we've been only been running about 4 months now," said Bankoff, and their start comes with Greensboro's first food-truck festival.
"I'm pretty excited about it actually, I hope it takes off," said Ryan Bell, a Greensboro resident.
"They want them in Greensboro for sure, and the vendors want to be here."
Months in the making, Shari Kumiega recruited dozens of vendors from all over North Carolina.
"We're willing to try anything, everything. Give everybody a little taste of Momma Dukes," said Michael Alexasis, food vendor.
Back at Nick's, the crowd continues to grow.
"It's going great! I can't believe how many people are here," said Bankoff.
Kumiega estimates the crowd reached 5,000 people.
"I think that probably every time I decide to go out to eat I'm going to go have a food truck something or other!" said Bell.
Sunday's event is a preview of what Greensboro residents can expect over the next two months.
This event was held on private property so the city was not involved but until recently, food trucks weren't allowed in Downtown Greensboro. The city council just gave the green light for a two month pilot-program running through November.
The cost of the food varied by truck but at most places, you can get a meal for less than ten bucks.
This pilot program is really a test for the city. They want to see how much support there is and if the food trucks take business away from traditional restaurants. Through this program, city leaders will determine if they will require food trucks to be taxed and inspected in Guilford County.
They're also trying to get a better idea about how close to a restaurant these food trucks should be allowed to park.
