Dykes got the idea to open the food truck with the help of his wife because of what he called, “A lack of places for the many Chinese to get authentic food in Auburn.” The name was inspired by the famous “Thong Song” by the artist, Sisqó, and its line, “dumps like a truck.” Dykes took this line from the song and started a food truck with a purpose.
