Leila's Food Truck is owned and operated by Shadan Kishi Price. Shadan has been a resident of Denton, Texas since 2004 where she lives with her husband, two cats, and two dogs. She graduated from the University of North Texas in 2008 with a degree in Visual Arts Studies. She taught art for a short time but realized that food was her passion. She went back to school and graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of North Texas again in 2013 with a degree in Hospitality Management. She has been a proponent of the vegetarian lifestyle and cuisine since 2007 and knew that she wanted to take this love for vegetarian cooking and open a food establishment where she could share it with the community.
In the past, she has worked as the sous chef/supervisor at the vegan dining hall on the UNT campus
and she has also taught cooking demonstrations at both Natural Grocers and Lifetime Fitness.
The truck is essentially an extension of Shadan's personality. Shadan was born in Iran and moved to Texas when she was two. Being an Iranian in Texas meant learning how to combine the best of both cultures, which is exactly what
her food offers. It combines the exotic flavors of Middle Eastern food with the traditional
classics we all know and love. All the food is vegetarian and it uses local produce
Leila's Food Truck is also strongly committed to serving the community. The truck
accepts canned food donations which they donate to a local food pantry. Please
continue to follow Leila's Food Truck for information on other community service events.
