Amber and Jason Everett had planned to open a food truck first and eventually a restaurant, but then a chain of events turned that plan on its head.
After a chance visit to a local restaurant, the couple found the eatery had shuttered. A phone call to a realtor quickly gave way to taking over the restaurant just two months later.
The Everetts opened Hangry City Grille and Spirits in June 2018 at 1252 Hill Rd N. Now, Amber said they plan to launch a food truck next month.
“We are taking things slow initially so we can find a balance to make sure the restaurant is running smoothly,” she said.

While the Everetts will take their food truck out to neighborhood events, Amber said they also plan to book graduation parties and weddings and eventually grow that side of the business. They also plan to attend the Octoberfest Sept. 25 at Combustion Brewery.
The truck will feature Hangry City’s specialty sliders, as well as some apps and full dinner salads.
Part of the vision for the food truck, Amber said, is to figure out a location for a second Hangry City brick and mortar restaurant.
The food truck will be on the Street Food Finder app, and information about its public event schedule will also be on Hangry City’s Facebook and Instagram pages. For bookings, email [email protected].
