Outdoor Food Truck

Build your dreams;
keep your sanity

a food truck journey


Who is he?

Drew Basilicato is the leading food truck advocate of the region. His work with industry development while trailblazing new laws makes him good. His work to bring aspiring food truckers along for the ride makes him great. Not only does Drew clearly address the 'how-tos',  but he speaks candidly about the potential pitfalls of the process so together, we can build a dream and keep our sanity.



"The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson


For Drew Basilicato, good is never good enough until it’s great. He possesses an innate ability to positively impact those in his presence. For decades, Drew made his mark as a well-respected fitness trainer in Myrtle Beach, SC.  He broadened his focus when he discovered that most of his clients were not effectively using nutrition to achieve their fitness goals. Meal prep in a mobile kitchen seemed like the next logical move. 


After years of research, countless revisions of  business plans and consultations with Coastal Carolina University’s small business development program,  The Trojan Cow was born in October of 2017. Drew spent three years updating antiquated laws in two cities directly impacting the expansion of the food truck industry. True to his nature, Drew personally mentored seventeen of the budding food truck entrepreneurs. 


Now, aspiring entrepreneurs are fortunate that Drew Basilicato is reaching out with his powerful message: BUILD YOUR DREAMS; KEEP YOUR SANITY.  His customized “real talks'' will span from surviving your first year to thriving on Day 366 and beyond. Let’s face it, if you can’t enjoy the ride, what’s the point?
