"My husband, a friend, and myself were sitting around a campfire roasting hot dogs while talking about our fascination with zombies," said Lee Ann VanArtsdalen, who lives in Washington Twp. and owns the Zombie Dogz food truck along with her husband Dave. "I was going to school at the time for business and did all of my projects around our business idea. We then opened March of 2013."
The Zombie Dogz food truck now travels all over the Miami Valley selling gourmet hot dogs and fresh side dishes. One hot dog, called Sliced and Diced, is topped with roasted pears, goat cheese, mixed greens, balsamic reduction, and candied almonds. Another one, called the Mad Tiki, has homemade tropical salsa, mangoes, glazed pineapple, strawberries, mint, lime juice and white chocolate toasted coconut flakes.
