In November 2009, Jim Heins sent out his first tweet as owner of Latin Burger and Taco.
He’d spent the previous year in the Caribbean, much of it in St. Bart’s, where Jimmy Buffet was inspired to write “Cheeseburger in Paradise” after spending time in a dive bar called Le Select.
“I should open a hamburger restaurant like the places I like to hang out in the Caribbean,” Heins remembers saying on his return to Miami. Within months, Heins had created what is believed to be the first food truck in South Florida. Before long, about a half-dozen food trucks roamed the streets of South Florida.
