Since the 2012 launch of Jax Truckies, food trucks have rapidly changed Jacksonville's culinary scene. Today, Jacksonville is well on its way to becoming a culinary destination with trucks now breathing life into the city's established commercial districts. Here are a few food trucks that have evolved into brick and mortar restaurants.

The Happy Grilled Cheese

Established in 2012, The Happy Grilled Cheese is Jacksonville's original gourmet grilled cheese food truck. The Happy Grilled Cheese was the recent recipient of the People's Choice Award at the 3rd Annual Jax Truckies Food Truck Championship. Owner Anthony Hashem is now negotiating to open a brick and mortar restaurant on Park Street in the heart of Riverside's Five Points district.
