Food Truck Stove, From truck to storefront: Restaurateur making his food dreams come true in Goodview-Joel Anacabe grew up with her private parents in a tourism company and grew up with private chefs. Food always inspires him.
After graduating from Winona State University in 2006, he decided to bring inspiration to the streets in the true sense of the word. First of all, on a Munchie machine and then by a food car by 2016, Anacabe developed his idea of a wheelchair brick restaurant called Anacabe’s Little Kitchen.
Located in the old Wenonah Brewing Couquet on the sixth street, the restaurant has been open for over a year and offers homemade burgers, sandwiches with Philly Cheese sauce, Cuban tacos, potatoes and sauce, and more. Anacabe’s original business plan was to drive a truck on the third street and Market Street in Winona, but was denied a city council that refused to ask. One of the prerequisites for driving a truck on Winona’s 3rd street is that the company must have a physical space that the Council feels is to avoid unfair commercial competition with local fixed restaurants.

Anacabe said he didn’t have enough capital to continue the Winon process to continue the plan.The answer in Goodview was different.”The City Council saw my vision,” he said. “They hugged me with open hands.”Anacabe only controlled the truck for a while, but just over a year ago, he opened a 38-seat restaurant with the support of a commercial mentor Cynthie Martland. In October, he decided it was time to get rid of the wheels.
“I sold a car in the autumn,” he said. “(Now the new owners) collided in front of the US bank stadium.”Now, Anacabe, his wife and restaurant manager Martland are waiting for new ideas.In addition to daily specialties, smoked meat, the crew is working on opening coffee and donkey transit in March.
“We have coffee from Caribou and Bloedow,” Anacabe said with enthusiasm.He also wants to add other things: “Bringing beer and wine,” he said, sitting in a small round band in the kitchen. “I’ll never take alcohol, insurance costs are not worth it.”Nothing is like throwing a smile in front of people’s entrance.
Martland, who worked in the food industry for about 25 years, said he was eager to grow in the future and hoped to work in a passionate restaurant.
“Come eat with us,” he said with a smile before returning to the kitchen.
