Food Truck Manufacturer Fueling Culinary Craze – This article published on Yahoo! does an incredible job telling the story of California Cart Builder. Today, California cart builder is one of the most well-known manufacturers of custom built food trucks and trailers. But, the family business had extraordinarily humble beginnings and took years of sacrifice to build into the successful business you see today. It’s well-worth the 10 minutes reading this story to get some perspective on owners, Rodney and Elma Eaton, where they came from, and how they built their business. It’s an all-American success story.

Customer Reviews: 

Yelp Reviews – Mixed reviews here, but addressed well by the owners. Some of the complaints appear to be primarily due to the price that was quoted and the reviewers do not include a photograph in their profile. Also, important to remember that California Cart Builder likely attracts illegitimate reviews online due to their position as a national market leader.
