Special Events Catering
We are very excited to attend and cater your next Special Event!! We will take the show on the road and come directly to you. Specializing in Wedding Parties, Private Parties, Corporate Events, Festivals, Music Concerts, Cast and Crew Lunches, Sporting Events, Private Club Functions and pretty much every other event that you can imagine. Unlike some other trucks, we will provide late night and early morning service.... we've even switched directly from our late night service into breakfast service on occasion.
Our Food truck is self sufficient. We carry our own water, supplies and electric services. We use a super quiet generator as our sole power provider. The generator is less noisy than normal conversation, so you will hardly even know it's there. Many other trucks will not offer this service... make sure you ask in advance... there's no fun in having a DJ try and play over loud generator noise.
