Episode 047: From IT Consultant To Vegan Food Truck Owner with Cynthia Nevels

Aug 22, 2019


In today’s episode, we’ll hear from former IT consultant, Cynthia Nevels, who became a vegetarian to prolong the life of her terminally ill son. Soon after, she used the same vegan recipes she created for her family to launch a food truck. Although she did this in the middle of beef loving Texas, her food truck has been featured on the CNBC show, Restaurant Startup and was recently voted Dallas’ best food truck. Not best vegan truck, but food truck period! Although her son Tyler has since passed, his legacy lives on through the Cynthia’ Soul Good food truck.
