Today we’d like to introduce you to Justin Campbell.
Justin, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I have always had a passion for building and design. As a child, in my free time I would work on projects in my parent’s garage in Bradenton, FL where I grew up. One time, I even tried to carve a dugout canoe from a block of wood. I would drive my parent’s crazy making a mess of their garage, but learning how things work and how to create was constantly on my mind. Some of my first construction projects were working on and remodeling large boats.
Founder and owner Justin Campbell makes the food trucks that catch eyes and fill bellies, with other mobile businesses in his sights.
When Campbell was operating a food truck in Los Angeles, he was making repairs to other people’s mobile kitchens on the side.
He quickly discovered there was strong demand for repairs to food trucks and carts and was making more doing overnight repairs for other people than he was selling food, so he founded Firefly Fabrication.
We had the good fortune of connecting with Justin Campbell and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Acknowledging risk is often associated with higher returns because of an investor’s willingness to leave some of the outcome to chance, which often yields even greater results. I notice a similar effect on my business at Firefly,
