The Loafer’s Chef of the Week is Melissa Dixon with Me & K’s food truck. Dixon has been in the kitchen since she was sixteen. Her passion and love for food grew from her grandfather’s garden. Making people happy is something Dixon loves to do, and she believes that food always makes people happy.
Dixon started her first food truck in 2014 and expanded to a food trailer in 2018. She won the Kingsport Cosby Award for food truck excellence as well as the Tri-Cities Soup Award for her traveling tortilla soup. She is also the food and beverage chair holder for the Tri-Pride Festival in Johnson City, TN.
Melissa Dixon and Kerstin Kline decided to start Me & K’s food truck in Johnson City, TN after they sold out of their products at the local Farmer’s Market. Dixon states that she owes an equal amount of her success to Kline, whom is her business partner and partner in life.
