The Fork ‘n’ Cork: From food truck to restaurant

Saturday, May 31st, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — What used to be one of Wilmington’s favorite food trucks has become the newest addition to downtown’s restaurant scene. Owner James Smith says starting out as a food truck was the perfect stepping stone to opening a full restaurant.

“This was always the plan. I always wanted to put our food out there and get a response,” Smith said.

And what a response he got.

Regulars to Smith’s old food truck The Patty Wagon were more than ready for The Fork ‘n’ Cork to open.

“He definitely created a loyal following that has been waiting for him to open this restaurant,” customer Jeffrey Simon said. “We’ve all been chomping at the bit.”

Smith sold his food truck in January after being at the forefront of downtown food truck regulation discussions last year.

“In the very beginning it was the restaurant verses the food trucks, and I think that with Tom and I coming together and talking we realized we were both really the same people,” Smith said last year.

Smith looks back on what he helped change.

“It’s been a great run, and I’m glad I was a part of the rules for the food trucks here, and hopefully it works out for other people,” he said.

The Fork ‘n’ Cork is at 122 Market St. in the old Slice of Life building.
