Chris Hodgson, 27 (Cleveland), is a graduate of Le Cordon Bleu who, inspired by the food trucks he saw while living in New York City, brought the very first food truck to the city of Cleveland. His truck, Dim and Den Sum, gained a cult following and lots of praise, helping pave the way for Cleveland’s food truck culture. He went on to open a second truck and a brick-and-mortar restaurant, Hodge's, and became a partner and consulting chef to the Driftwood Restaurant Group.
