STORY

Founder Samuel Caklo launched GERMANY’S #1 in 2016 in Louisville, KY. He visited his brother, who is working in Louisville, in 2015. He had the simple idea of serving the popular food they missed from Germany for American consumers.

                  Currywurst with french fries

Samuel’s dream was to offer Bratwurst in the United States. This idea and his passion for food let Samuel leave his homeland Germany and start his first food truck to bring Germany’s favourite food onto Louisville’s streets and festivals.

When he was in fifth grade in Gütersloh, Germany, Samuel Caklo dreamed of someday selling bratwurst in America. While his classmates and teachers poked fun at the idea, the entrepreneur this year turned his childhood dream into reality.

Since August, Samuel Caklo (pronounced CHUCK-lo) has been selling brats and other favourite German fast foods from a Louisville food truck called Germany’s #1 Food.
The white truck features a German flag (black, red and gold), the names of some cities, outlines of famous structures, such as the Brandenburg Gate and nods to other things German, such as the Kaiser (a reference to Germany’s famed soccer player and éminence grise Franz Beckenbauer).

Samuel Caklo, 29, cooked up the idea for a food truck business last year(2015) when he visited his brother, Sargon, who has worked in Louisville for about two years as a software engineer. During the visit, he asked his brother whether he could get some German food, especially a Döner kebab, a fast food made of meat cooked on a vertical rotisserie.
