LEBANON, TN (WSMV) – A Lebanon woman has left behind the world of environmental chemistry to run a food truck.For 20 years, Gina Hayes worked as an Environmental Chemist in Nashville, making sure the water was drinkable. One year ago, Hayes dumped the lab coat for an apron.“I was a chemist at an environmental corporation,” Hayes said. “Important work, good pay, and prestige, but out here seemed better.”Her food truck Hillbilly Shack Delights is between Carthage and Lebanon. She makes cheeseburgers, bacon cheeseburgers, quesadillas, burritos, and chicken Philly cheese steaks.“It was my dream actually from the beginning,” Hayes said. “Making people happy with food.”
Gotta say, Hillbilly Shack Delights sounds like a good place to have lunch. I would really like to own and run a 24-hour diner someday, but I imagine it's pretty hard work.
