Three-year resident of Ormond Beach, Executive Chef Mark Pullin is making some noise around Volusia County. After opening Blau Grill, Fusion 43 and 31 Supper Club, Chef wanted to venture out on his own and have a more personal interaction with his fellow foodies! A man in Orlando contacted him and let him know NASA had retired one of the trucks that shipped the astronauts from the station to the shuttle, only 3,000 miles on it and fully stocked with everything he could need to make gourmet meals. Thus, the Good Food Truck was born! A few fun facts about Chef Mark Pullin, studying under Chef Roy Yamaguchi and Chef Randy Oviot, he has cooked for big names such as; Kid Rock, Martha Stewart, Bobby Flay, Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Paris Hilton, President’s Secret Service, Chris Angel and many more. And to think… someone of this stature lives right in Ormond Beach! In 2011, he beat out 20 other competitors in the Taste of the NFL and was crowned culinary champion, allowing him to cook for 3,000 people at that year’s Superbowl. Moving to Ormond Beach, FL from his hometown in Ohio – Chef hit the ground running as soon as he arrived and hasn’t skipped a beat. The Good Food Truck specializes in employee appreciation, corporate events, weddings and has recently started a fundraising tract.Super fresh, super hot, making people happy – instead of frozen chicken fingers and all this bad stuff restaurants are putting out there. It’s awful. People deserve the best and that’s something I can give them.”  You heard the Chef, no can-openers, freezers or microwaves here.
