Genius in a Box

Genius In A BoxTrying out new things in Louisville is one of my favorite things to do. I love this city and have adopted it as my own. This is one of the reasons I absolutely love helping people find their home here in this wonderful city. One of my newest fascinations is Louisville’s food trucks. A brilliant idea! Food on wheels! I’m always pleasantly surprised at how great the food tastes.Genius In A Box Tomatoes

One of those happy surprises is the food truck Genius In A Box.  My husband and I were checking out Jeffersontown’s Gaslight Festival when I felt drawn to this creative truck. I ordered the sandwich The Genius (I’m a sucker for anything that has ham and sautéed onions!) and it melted in my mouth. The sandwich was big enough to feed me and my husband.

The food was enough to make me want to come back, but as a bonus I was fortunate enough to get to talk with the owners, Tristian and Diedrea Barnes. They were both incredibly friendly and patient enough to answer all of my questions about the business of food trucks. When you see this truck driving around, make sure you stop and say hi from the At Home In Louisville Real Estate Group!

Genius In A Box was created from matrimony. We took our savings from our wedding and started this business. We thought, ‘what better way to share our love, then by giving Genius to those who love great food.’ Even though I'm the Chef and my wife's the smile, the taste of Genius comes from unified effort-flavors each dish with a sprinkle love."

"We started Genius in March 2012. We decided to be the forerunners of the food truck industry. When we started, there were only 5 other trucks doing business. Genius, Louisville Dessert , Booty’s Diner, Holy Mole, Lil Cheezers, and Traveling Kitchen. Now, food trucks have become a desired choice for many homes and have continued to become widespread throughout Louisville. Genius in A Box is not only food, it's culture, it's love, it's creativity. We strive to be different, I remember at my aluma mater, UofL , one of our slogans was ‘Dare to be different’, and that's what Genius stands on. So when you are out and about and see that li'l old white trailer, just don't think great food, think great people with lots of love- and always think Genius.”

You know, it feels wrong to eat anything out of a truck, but it tastes soooo good!! I haven't been disappointed in any of the food trucks in Louisville.

I am Tristian's grandmother who live in Paducah, Ky. What a nice thing to do writing that article about his business. Tristian loved to cook as soon as could reach the cabinets, refrigerator and the pots and pans. Is there anyway that I could purchase the magazine? I would really like to boast to my family and friends, showing them the article. Not only that, but for myself and praising the Lord for him working hard instead of him being out in the streets. I'll be looking to hear from you and God bless.
