21 Awesome Food Trucks
21. Maximus Minimus Food Truck
Seattle is known for several things, but barbecue is not necessarily one of them. That is, until you see the Maximus Minimus food truck rolling around the corner headed toward 6th and Pike downtown. It is the brainchild of Kurt Beecher, who worked for years at a family of businesses known as Sugar Mountain. The concept for the food truck came as a result of him tinkering around in the kitchen preparing meals for the hungry kitchen staff. In the spring of 2008, great BBQ became his focus and the rest is history. Well, they added a little bit of barbecue sauce and the rest was history. The name lovingly gives a nod to his son that at the time was entering his teenage years. His name was Max, and the nickname Maximus was given. It was later used to think the bus out in full barbecue style, complete in the shape of a pig. If you’re in downtown Seattle and looking for some good eats, give Maximus Minimus a try!
