  • Chef Phillip Martin wants to seize the day -- with crepes.

A show of hands, please. Is there anyone in Kansas City who does not want to operate his or her own food truck? (Well, me.) Phillip Martin, the 39-year-old executive chef at the Primrose Retirement Community in the Northland, would like his own food truck - to serve crepes - and even has a catchy name for it: Crepe Diem. He also has a Kickstarter campaign going in order to raise the $30,000 he'll need to get into the food-truck business.

Martin, whose 23-year culinary career includes 11 years with the Hy-Vee stores, has raised nearly $5,000 on his Kickstarter venture, but that's about $25,000 less than his goal - and the clock stops in three days.

"A lot of people have gotten most of their funds in the last days of these projects," Martin says.

Martin's ultimate goal: to own a couple of food trucks and an actual restaurant serving breakfast and lunch.
