About five years ago, Twisted Plants owners Brandon and Arielle Hawthorne switched to a plant-based diet and it changed their lives. However, they were disappointed by the slim selection of vegan eateries.

“We noticed there was a lack of vegan comfort foods,” says Brandon Hawthorne. “This gave us the idea of doing the food truck.”

As of 2023, the pair owns and operates two – soon to be three – restaurants along with their food truck.

Do you offer vegetarian / vegan / gluten-free options? The entire menu is vegan and gluten-free buns are available.

Most popular item(s): “The Pineapple Express burger," says Brandon. "It has grilled pineapples, grilled onions, a sweet sauce, chipotle mayo with beyond meat that comes on a pretzel bun." Another popular menu item is the Super Bad, featuring grilled onions and grilled jalapenos with chipotle ranch on a pretzel bun.

If you could park your truck anywhere for one day where would it be?  "We'd love to be at State Fair!" says Brandon.
