Five Questions with Boxburgerposted by SPD Communications on June 29, 2018 in Food Truck Interview
A Greenwood-based food truck is taking a time-tested American fast food favorite and turning it up to 11 with dozens of toppings, seasonings and spices.
You could say they’re thinking “outside the box,” and the result has been a menu unlike any other all-beef patty purveyor in the Hoosier State. To be sure, Brandan Kyle’s Boxburger food truck isn’t at all “boxed-in” by the usual burger tropes and instead lets customers choose exactly how each black Angus beef sandwich is dressed.
Want some peanut butter on that burger? Sure! How about a fried egg and some sweet chili sauce? The answer is, of course, yes.
Read on to find out how Boxburger is making a name for itself on the Hoosier food truck scene by offering an eclectic menu that is anything but “square.”
Q: In only two years Boxburger has gained a reputation for providing one of the Indy area’s best burgers. What sets Boxburger apart from similar food trucks, and how has this helped you stand out in a very competitive business?
A: We knew early on that premium ingredients and consistency would set us apart from similar food trucks, but mostly it is the crew’s dedication to producing a quality product. We are constantly in pursuit of making the perfect burger, and we firmly believe that the next sandwich should be better than the last.
Q: Who are some of the people behind Boxburger and what are their roles?
A: The crew consists of family and friends and the roles vary from day to day. Our event planner, Jan [Shipley], is the brains and brawn behind the operation.
Q: What do you like most about the Statehouse Market?
A: We have a ton of fans at the Statehouse Market. We get a lot praise when we are there and it makes our job easier when we feel appreciated. We love all the folks in downtown Indy!
Q: What are some of Boxburger’s most popular items?
A: Our one-third pound black Angus cheeseburger and our fries. Both are smothered in our house seasoning that our fans rave about.
Q: What makes the perfect burger? What toppings would you include while crafting a top-notch sandwich?
A: We will let you know what makes the perfect burger when we figure that out for ourselves, haha!
We know that all of our customers are different and have different ideas on the perfect burger. We like to leave it open to interpretation on their part. We offer an assortment of over 30 toppings, from the basics to stuff that you would only find at Boxburger. We offer what we think is the best burger in town and let the customer decide how it should be dressed up.
