It’s been awhile since our last “Meet the Trucks” interview. This week we are dusting off the cobwebs and giving you an inside look at Compliments Food Truck! Compliments would not exist without a young couple’s mutual passion for food. Bobby and Kim, Compliments owners, chefs, and entrepreneurs, met one summer while Bobby was working as a realtor and Kim as a manager of a busy café in Downtown Boston. Their paths first crossed when one of Bobby’s clients brought Kim along to go apartment hunting. Soon after meeting they decided to open a business together.
Bobby and Kim’s busy schedules kept them apart during the day. Their food truck idea was born one summer day on the beach. Once the idea was born they would never look back or feel hungry again. Their experience with Roxy’s Grilled Cheese Food Truck, along with the “grease trucks” that frequented Kim’s campus during her time at Rutger’s University, ignited the idea to open a food truck of their own.
Compliments’ engine was slow to start. After weighing many options, the two chose the route of the good old American Dream. They bought an empty truck on eBay with the help of family, friends, and sponsors and began building what would be their new beginning.
After months of ordering parts, researching licensing, and refurbishing the truck, Compliments was just about ready to hit the road. The truck, designed and painted by Bobby and Kim’s friends, made its grand opening at 1842 Beacon Street. Compliments was a part of Brookline’s Food Truck Pilot Program this past year. The truck can be found vending throughout Brookline and also at many special events in the area. Aside from Bobby and Kim’s smiling faces, inside the truck you can find local, fresh, and downright delicious items.
Everything that comes out of the truck is made fresh to order. The “Waited All My Life” hand cut fries are one of their most popular items. It’s not easy to find a sandwich quite as delicious as the “Falling in Love,” an apple, honey, and goat cheese sandwich. To view Compliments’ website, click here.
