If you are from the Seattle area and call yourself a street food enthusiast, then you have likely tried Skillet at one point or another.

This infamous food truck needs no introduction from their savory poutine, mouth- watering burgers, artisan bacon jam to their southern fried chicken and waffles; Skillet Street hits every plate spot on again and again.

We just heard from Josh at the popular Airstream that Skillet will be joining us at the Mobile Food Rodeo this May 6th in Fremont and we couldn’t be more excited.

Northwest street food pioneer, chef Josh Henderson created Skillet Street Food in Seattle in 2007, one of the first food experiences of what has since become a prototype for the national street food movement that has swept the country. Out of a vintage Airstream trailer, he created innovative lunch menus based on American-inspired food prepared with classic technique and seasonal ingredients. The reception from Seattle’ites was immediate and passionate. They were drawn to the chef driven food, the excitement of being a part of a new, energetic, urban experience, and to the intimate involvement through the use of social media channels that intensified the connection with the Skillet brand.

The original street food business has become a brand but has not strayed from its roots. The thread is still there: great food prepared with care, technique and the best of ingredients; an innovative experience that consistently surprises and satisfies; and a feeling of being personally connected to Skillet, in all its manifestations. We see this as our mission – to continue to deliver on these themes and to continue to find new channels though which we can expand the brand and the family of loyal Skillet customers.
