“The whole goal behind it is backing budding entrepreneurs that unfortunately don’t have the funds to start their dream business,” Davies told the FOX Business Network’s Stuart Varney.

Along with the financial backing, Davies explained his role in helping the food truck startups get off the ground.

“We actually put our sweat equity in the build, but then on the operational side we help them develop a plan to be successful.”
