P&S: The Making of a Food Truck

So, how many of you have come out to Jep’s Southern Roots so far?? (If you’re in Austin, you better have!!) For those of you who haven’t visited, you’re missing out, BIG.

Now let me tell you a lil story about how this grub stop got cookin’.

When Jess and I first had our idea of starting a food truck, we didn’t know just what we were getting in to. We knew we had a great idea, but we didn’t know where to start. That’s when Jess found P&S Trailer Service.

P&S Trailer Service has a great story. It all starts with the Ruth family. The Ruth family has lived on the same farm in Ohio for 5 generations (that’s a long time!!) and have been tilling the land for more than 100 years. Then, in 1968, patriarch Paul Ruth bought a 1964 Airstream Overlander in much need of repair. When visiting the Airstream Service Center in Ohio with his son Steve, Paul asked if there was any interest in an Airstream refinishing business. He was met with much encouragement and enthusiasm and got busy. At first, Paul only worked on the Airstreams part-time during the winter, but in 1970, P&S went full force.

Fast forward nearly 50 years (whoa, right!) to when the Ruths met the Robertsons. We loved the idea of a vintage trailer for the truck, and P&S, which now specializes in food trucks, was definitely the way to go. We got in touch and put the project into motion. Jess and our pal Brian Purser got to work on design and the needed fixin’s. Brian and Jess teamed up with Kevin, Paul Ruth’s grandson, on the project, and P&S took it from there.

P&S worked some heavy magic to make our dreams a reality, and I mean heavy magic. Kitchen appliances are not made of air, so the pure labor, strength, and engineering prowess needed in making Jep’s Southern Roots made for no easy task. Seriously, gutting and rebuilding a vintage Airstream? That’s called w-o-r-k. But, Kevin and his team were up for the job. They outfitted the trailer beautifully with ovens and refrigerators, cooktops and grills, all the while souping up the exterior with new rims and a fresh polish. What we started with was a 1973 27 Airstream and what we ended with was the best food truck in Austin. We owe it all to Kevin and P&S Trailer Service.

So, if y’all are looking to start your own food truck (do it!!), or if you just happen upon an old Airstream that needs a stellar refurbish, you got to call the guys at P&S. No ifs or buts, they’ll hook you up and make your dreams reality.
