This ‘Space Shuttle’ is Really a “Spacey” Illinois Food Truck
There are very few food trucks that have this story to tell. It looks like a Space Shuttle. However, it's really a converted World War II-era plane that's been converted into a mobile café and it makes its home in Illinois.
This is the unveiling of what used to be a World War II-era plane into a mobile kitchen.
Kudos to Fox 2 Now in St. Louis for this find. They featured a talk with the owner of the "Soulcial Kitchen Space Shuttle Café".
Swansea, Illinois might as well be St. Louis as it's a suburb near Belleville.
According to the owner, this is the only food truck of its kind on the planet to begin its life as a plane 70 years ago. A creative team in California did the conversion before it was delivered to Illinois to begin its new mission selling sandwiches.
Gotta love the American spirit to take something historical and give it new life as something fun and nutritional.
