“It’s just a way for me to share my favorite meals and my favorite recipes with people,” Broussard said. “I love food, and I love people, and it’s a way to bring the two together through the restaurant."
Broussard’s husband, Shane, works at Toyota of Cedar Park, and she originally started cooking and serving meals for the employees. She said she wanted to continue to serve the employees as well as the Leander and Cedar Park communities, which is why the dealership is the food truck’s permanent home.
Libby’s Lunchbox serves an assortment of breakfast and lunch meals such as sandwiches, tacos, burgers, po'boys and French toast, with altering daily specials. One of the most popular menu items at the food truck is the build-your-own burger, which allows customers to choose from a long list of ingredients to add to their burger.
Broussard said she tries to live out the restaurant's slogan—"Food is our love language"—when serving customers.
“I want them to smile,” she said. “I want people to sit down and eat and be filled with joy, because that’s what food can do.”
Since opening, Broussard said the food truck is starting to get traction from the community. She said the restaurant blends in being located in a dealership parking lot, so it’s nice people are spreading the word about the food.
Despite the food truck still being fairly new, Libby’s Lunchbox has donated free meals to teachers to show appreciation. Broussard said she wants to continue efforts of giving back to the community by fundraising for women and children's shelters, and preparing a large Thanksgiving dinner for the homeless.
For the remainder of this year, Broussard said the focus is to continue generating as much business as possible for Libby’s Lunchbox to help advance the idea of a brick-and-mortar. The goal for the restaurant is to eventually have a chain of locations.
In addition to expanding to a brick-and-mortar, Broussard has the goal of getting a mobile trailer that is strictly for catering events such as weddings and corporate business parties.
The brick-and-mortar could happen within the next year, and Broussard is eyeing locations in Leander or Cedar Park.
“We’re looking forward to serving [our customers],” Broussard said. “We’re new, we’re here and we want to feed [the community].”
