Three partners with a ton of culinary experience and a passion for Thai food started the Bun Intended Food Truck with a simple goal: serve unique, delicious Thai-inspired street food for friends, family and fans in Asheville and WNC, while making a positive impact on the community. Erica "Shorty" Imhoff, Carter James, and Kyle James enjoy creating inspired food concepts and more than anything, they love to feed people. All of our produce and proteins are sourced from local producers and family farms as much as possible, further strengthening the link between our food & local farms.
Over 20 immersive signature events are featured throughout the weekend! Tours, dinners, parties, foraging and more await.
This inspired, friendly and free-spirited food scene tucked in the mountains of Appalachia has been called “Foodtopia,” but the locals just call it home. Plan your trip now.
Access to affordable and healthy food and reducing food waste are important initiatives of the signature event’s charitable giving goals.
