The Scoop: Smokin’ Monkey food truck has closed
January 25th 12:01pm, 2017
The Smokin’ Monkey food truck, which specialized in “barbecue with a tropical twist,” is officially off the road.
“It was just time,” said co-owner Kimberly Patterson. “The market is oversaturated. There are a million food trucks now, and people aren’t as excited about it as they used to be.”
Patterson said she and her husband and business partner, Kyle Patterson, who also works in the kitchen at Boundary, will still maintain the business and may do some catering. The Pattersons plan to sell the truck, which they’ve operated since 2013. Patterson said they might revisit the food truck concept in the future or possibly a brick-and-mortar location.
