“Soul food is loved by people of all walks of life; however, often it’s only found in urban communities,” commented King. “I want to make this cuisine healthy and accessible to everyone, and it seems to be working…”
A foodie from childhood, King began his career in the food industry working alongside his dad in the family soul food business at the young age of 12. King’s dad, a classically trained chef, taught his four sons the artistry of cooking culinary dishes with a soulful twist. King easily picked up techniques for creating great soul food; however, in establishing his business he wanted to present it as healthier alternative to the decadent soul food created by his parents.
King launched PostcardsCAS in 2013 after leaving a successful career as a marketer for some of the biggest brands in the world, including NBC, Warner Bros., Fox Entertainment Group, L’Oreal, and Mattel.
King has utilized his professional experience as the sounding board to building a successful restaurant business. PostcardsCAS delivers tasty and healthy soul food options easily eaten on the go, because they are served in a wrap or bowl. Similar to Chipotle where Mexican cuisine is served in a wrap or bowl; King his customized a tantalizing menu offering notable soul food staples available for consumers who love southern soul food cuisine; yet, he’s added some Belizean staples (such as Rice and Peas, Oxtails and Plantain) to compliment his offerings.

the #GreatFoodTruckRace at Lake Havasu

Taping For Great Food Truck Race Moves To Lake Havasu

great food truck race season 5
LAKE HAVASU, AZ – The Food Network’s Great Food Truck Race invaded Lake Havasu City Saturday with seven of the nation’s best food trucks, and Havasuvians weren’t complaining.
“This is awesome,” said Brian Stankowitz, as he shared a Globally Delicious Burgers’ hamburger with his daughter. “I’ve been watching this show for so long. When I heard this show was here I said, ‘O my God.’”

Stankowitz, who is a local Navy recruiter, said, “It’s an amazing, pretty-good burger. This one is phenomenal.”

Helen White, who traveled all the way from Birmingham Ala. for the Bassmasters Elite competition, was pleasantly surprised to find some familiar food at the Postcards food cart, which was a South American—soul food hybrid.

“We ate at Postcards and it was cool to get a taste of home out here, and it was delicious,” White said about the chicken, mac ‘n’ cheese, and greens wrap. “It was also really rad to see it was a family business, and see the daughter calling back to her father in the kitchen.”

White also was able to tell the cameras what she thought of the food, and it was a dream come true.
