Beyond the Truck: Klausie's Pizza

Everybody has a story.

Mike Stenke's story started the day he got married.  That also happened to be the day Mike was laid off.

Armed with a dangerously delicious recipe for pizza but lacking the capital to open a restaurant, Mike decided to dish out his pies from a truck.  Klausie's PIzza was born.

Now, one year later, Raleigh has finally passed a law that will allow food trucks to sell on private property.

My interview with Mike illustrates his desire to succeed and the pursuit of the American dream.

    Great little bit. Now all we need is a schedule of where he will be located so we can support!
