Scott Harper watched the movie Chef one night, and the next morning looked in the mirror and said “I don’t want to spend another minute of my life doing anything I don’t love to do.” And added, “one day your life will flash before your eyes. Make sure it’s worth watching.”
According to his wife Debbie, she laughs and says, “Scott’s a dreamer, he built me a beautiful food truck… I’m the real Chef.”
The couple are a secondgeneration family born and raised in Coquitlam, with a strong pull to give back to the local community that supports them. Cheese Street Grill food truck is their baby, and they travel the food truck festival circuit, plus other events and markets throughout the Lower Mainland.
What do they serve? Handcrafted grilled cheese sandwiches, seasonal soups, all made with locally sourced, highest quality ingredients. And love. Their “mac ‘n cheesy” is a fan favourite, with 8 different gooey, melty cheeses with Granny Smith apple slices. The “spicy mama” (with Italian sausage and chipotle) and “big daddy” (with double-smoked bacon) sound intriguing too.
Scott tells us the most satisfying about running their family business is, “people saying what a great job we are doing – and really meaning it! Most people only hear that when the boss is trying to keep them from quitting.”
Come hungry – this food truck doesn’t kid around.
