Gluten Free Food Truck!

Our daughter was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in 2019, and providing her with a true quality of life experience for a child her age suddenly became increasingly difficult. Birthday parties, sports events, classroom celebrations, family celebrations, holidays, are all heart breaking. I know she is not in "danger," but my heart breaks each time her friends/classmates, get a "treat" and she cannot have one. I accommodate her when I know in advance and provide her with gluten free options, but it's not the same. I want her to be able to go out to eat with friends/family, eventually a significant other, and not have to order off the "Gluten Free Menu, which typically is not that appealing to kids." 
My husband is an extremely hard worker, attended culinary classes at Southern New Hampshire University years ago, and is passionate to make a difference in the lives of people with Celiac disease in a "normal" setting. We have always dreamed of opening a restaurant dedicated to gluten free. We have been in contact with Maui Brick Oven, in Kihei Hawaii, as we lived there the year she was diagnosed and they are amazing and successful and are hoping to bring a similar experience to Maine. We want to begin with a food truck because of their success rate. We want to offer really good, go to foods, that you cannot access anywhere with good quality if you are gluten free. We are thinking about cheeseburgers/hotdogs/lobster rolls, with an actual good bun, fried food such as fried pickles, mozzarella sticks. In addition to this we want to offer naturally gluten free food such as crab legs, mussels with butter. Portland Maine is known for their culinary cuisine, and with your financial help and our personal dedication, this dream for us could become a norm for society and those who are struggling with a life of having to avoid so many pleasurable experiences  due to gluten.
