Anna Hutto, a high school sophomore from Tyler, has created a food truck concept that is both high quality and philanthropic. 100 percent of the profit from Melted, the food truck with a mission, will be donated to International Justice Mission (IJM).
“The work that IJM does is something I feel is the lifeline to making the world a better place,” Hutto said. “My hope is that Melted will not only bring funds to IJM, but start a new movement of awareness of the need to protect the poor from violence in developing countries.”
Eric Silverstein, founder of The Peached Tortilla, has consulted on this project from its inception.
“This is an extremely exciting project with a real purpose,” Silverstein said. “Anna is marrying her passions of entrepreneurship and philanthropy through a food truck, and I think Austin will respond positively to what we are bringing to the table.”
Chef Aaron Esserman has been brought on board from the Park Hyatt Beaver Creek as Manager and Executive Chef. He has been creating high quality grilled cheese offerings in the test kitchen for the past
“We have spent many hours in our kitchen developing some extraordinary flavors to put into Americas favorite pastime meal, the grilled cheese,” Esserman said. “I encourage everyone to visit not only to experience very fun food, but to support a heartfelt message that will be sent globally.”
The truck will have its grand opening at the Whitestone Brewery in Cedar Park on June 11 from 12 to 4 p.m. American Gypsy, a rock band from Pflugerville will be playing, in addition to Volk, an Indie duo from Berlin Germany. The public is invited.
