Eatn’ Be Crepeful

A review of BV-student-owned food truck


Ava Poland, Staff Writer

Over the summer, business has been booming for junior Karizma Nola who decided to take his love for cooking to a new level when he bought himself a food truck last spring. Nola got the idea for his business — Krazy Crepes — over spring break when he ate at Crêpes A La Cart, a popular crepe stand in Breckenridge, Colo.

“I thought their crepes were really good, and it made me think about how we don’t have any crepe places nearby,” Nola said. “That’s when I decided I wanted to bring some crepes to Kansas.”

Nola purchased the food truck from a family friend who he had done catering for in the past. Because of this, obtaining the truck and adding decals the truck needed was easy; however, getting a license for the truck was not. 

“Licensing was hard because I am not 18,” Nola said. “My mom had to do most of it and it ended up costing roughly $1,500.”

 By April, Krazy Crepes went from a vision to reality. Nola’s main tools for advertising himself were social media platforms, such as Facebook and Instagram, where his business received lots of attention. 

“It’s not very hard to get business for food trucks because of the constant need for food at people’s private events, birthday parties, festivals, and catering,” he said. “We started to work at events around KC, and now usually we work every weekend.”

All of Nola’s crepes are made fresh from the truck, and he provides a variety of flavors that rotate weekly.

“Usually there’s about four sweet options and four savory ones,” Nola said. “The savory ones have meats and vegetables, and the sweet ones have fruits or syrups.” 

You can keep up with Krazy Crepes by following @KrazyCrepesKC on Instagram or Facebook where dates, times and locations are posted for each weekend. 

The Chicken Philly checks off all the marks for a satisfying and easy lunch. The tender chicken and gooey cheese create an amazing flavor that is balanced out by sauteed peppers and onions. This crepe is packed with protein and nutrients, and its portability makes it perfect for those looking to eat on the go. 

My favorite of the three crepes, the Krazy Apple Pie is a unique recreation of the classic dessert everyone loves. The crepe’s contents include cinnamon apple slices, caramel sauce, whipped cream and a big scoop of vanilla ice cream to top it off. Though it is significantly messy, this crepe is still a tasty treat.

This crepe has all the elements of a Dirt n’ Worms ice cream sund

ae: vanilla ice cream, Oreo crumbles and gummy worms. Although this

crepe is delicious it is also melty and difficult to eat without mak

ing a mess. Additionally, I felt this crepe was lacking in

chocolate, which is a major aspect of a Dirt n’ Worms sundae.
