Main Street MInute: Jax Hardy

Posted: Updated:

It's no surprise that Minot is going through some rapid growth.

And, if you're a business owner, you always have to consider what will draw in some customers.

From the outside, it may look like a mobile truck. But on the inside, they're cooking up specialty sandwiches.

"We take the truck anywhere that food is required," says Jax Hardy co-owner Michael Belmount.

Belmount's been driving his food truck all over North Dakota, serving slowed cooked food to hungry customers.

"We make smoked brisket sandwiches, and we also make smoked turkey sandwiches," says Belmount.

Right now, he's camped out on the Minot Air Force Base, but still travels across the state.

"We've done grooms dinners, company picnics, and we were at the air museum this weekend for the fourth," says Belmount.

But the key to his success was thinking outside of a stationary business.

"It seems to be the growing trend right now for the mobile food units. My cousin and I decided it would be a great idea to come up here and give it a shot," says Belmount.

Jax Hardy has been going strong for about a year now. They pride themselves on slow roasting everything up to 15 to 18 hours before serving it to their customers.
