Tyre Holman says he'd never really thought much about cooking until he enrolled in a free program after college--fast forward to today and he owns his own food truck slinging savory eats on the streets of Norwalk.  
The 25-year-old says he fell in love with cooking right away and 'Everybody Eatz' was born.
"I started cooking out of my mother's house, so I started at mom's house, and I was selling platters and stuff out of my mom's house, and then she got tired of it," Holman says.
Holman's recipes and his ambitions outgrew first a nearby bodega kitchen - and then some rented space at the local 507 Cafe.
After months of saving, he opened his own food truck, and he was ready to hit the road.
"It's amazing, this is mine, nobody can tell me when to open, when to close, how to do things, so it's like a great feeling," Holman says.
Everybody Eatz mainstays are lamb, beef, and seafood dishes.
Holman says everyone's path to success is different and he wouldn't change a thing.
"I got out of college and was able to participate in a free program and actually build a foundation for myself, a base, and that was just probably the best thing I could ever do," he says.
He's happy to see Norwalk's business community looking more diverse than ever before.
