Red Star Southern, the cheeky Southern food trailer from Erica Waksmunski, is up for sale, according to a Craigslist post. This doesn’t mean the hot fried chicken would go away forever. The chef and owner told Eater she is looking for a larger trailer to keep up with customer demand. Red Star remains open until the sale for $40,000, which includes all equipment.
Waksmunki, who also runs the pastry program runs the pastry program for all four Parkside Projects restaurants, opened the trailer last summer with a very entertaining video. She kept up the laughs with blunt job postings, funny Instagram, and the infamous mascot Ol’ Shitter Jim. She even introduced a nine course chef’s table tasting menu with a "food trailer" theme.
