When Barron Perl drives down the street in whatever midwestern town is next on his schedule, he’s the most popular guy on the block. It’s not only because his Deli Direct delivery truck is stocked full of specialty gourmet meats and cheeses that are perfect holiday gifts, but with a new graphics design he’s often driving the most colorful and best looking truck on the street.
