I had been watching the progress of the Purple People Eatery for a few months before it finally debuted in mid February of 2011. The name comes from a 1980’s movie. The truck was built in Mississippi during late 2010 and was a creation by Chefs David Shipman and Michelle Duncan. They refer to their food as “slammin’ street food”. As someone who’s tried it, I agree. You gotta get the Mac N Jack!
