At the 2021 Olympics in Tokyo last summer, Tamyra Mensah-Stock of Katy became the first Black woman to win a gold medal in wrestling.
When asked how she might use Olympic prize money, Tamyra quickly said she planned to purchase a $30,000 food truck for her mother, who she said strongly supported her championship journey.
Up stepped Cameron Davies, owner of San Antonio's Cruising Kitchens, who offered to design, build and donate a $250,000 food truck for Tamyra's mom, Shonda Wells.
Like Tamyra, who got her start as a 10th grader at Morton Ranch High School and quickly become one of the best female wrestlers in the state, Cruising Kitchens has grown from a simple car customization shop to become a firm that designs and builds dozens of food trucks annually, working with everyone from mom-and-pop operators to large companies and organizations like Whataburger, Raising Cane’s and the Houston Food Bank.
Last weekend in San Antonio, Shondra and Tamyra got their first look at the P'lickles Famous BBQ food truck.
