Captain Scott Thorell of Unified Fire Authority.

West Jordan - Since a young age, Scott Thorell of West Jordan has had the passion for cooking, music and arts. “I started working in restaurants at the age of 11,” he said. He has lived a very ambitious life since, as he stated, “I have been in fire service for 22 years now; I was also a flight medic for 15 years.” Thorell is currently the captain for Unified Fire Authority. “Last August I needed to do something different, and so I found a truck on eBay,” he said. He wanted to get back to his passion, so in 2015 he put this dream into action and introduced the city to 4Truck. He turned this 1963 eBay-bought retro taco truck into a one-of-a-kind, firehouse-themed food truck. 

The truck was named 4Truck in remembrance of the New York Fire Department rescue truck, Rescue 4. The truck responded to the Sept. 11, 2001 attack on New York. Eight men arrived on this truck, but all were killed when the South Tower collapsed. 

Captain Thorell has been cooking for the last 40 years, and the type of food he offers on his food truck is comfort firehouse foods.  He now offers the city the same food he has been feeding his firefighters for years. His menu ranges from ribs and meatloaf to chili Colorado burritos with varying sides.

He is really hoping to leave his mark on West Jordan and gain a local following. Since he still serves his community as captain for Unified Fire Authority, his truck is currently only available for contract work.
