Selling Turkey Legs Is A "Dream Come True" For One Topeka Entrepreneur

By  | 

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - What started as a dream, is now reality for one Topeka entrepreneur.

Mark Longshore started operating his food truck last spring.

He'd seen similar businesses while traveling around the U.S. and wanted to drive the idea back to Topeka.

Longshore sells turkey legs, pulled pork, and wraps at his "Turkey Legs and More" food truck.

Longshore says he chose to sell turkey legs because of his own love of the food.

"Every holiday I had to have a turkey leg, and I'd drive all over town because I couldn't find them. I'd finally found enough and everything, sometimes I'd have to buy them month to month in advance, two months in advance because i couldn't find them. And, wallah, turkey legs," said Longshore.

Longshore says the location he picks depends on the business but he plans on being near 31st and Topeka and 21st and Wanamaker quite often in the coming weeks.
