Fool HQ got a treat recently. Kyle Pounders, friend of the pod and owner of the food truck Excaliburger, came by to serve up burgers to the office. While he was in town, we got him into the studio to catch up on what he's been up to. Since we first met him at SXSW, Kyle has been traveling the country with his truck, but recently he's gone from touring to targeted trips to areas hit by natural disasters and he's tweaking his business model to try and be able to give more. His story seemed like the perfect one to share at a time when we're all trying to be mindful, thankful, and charitable.
