Luncho Libre specializes in bringing "lonches" to the world. Lonches are mini Mexican sub sandwiches that will change your life!
HOW DID LUNCHO LIBRE BEGIN?
Luncho Libre began as an idea for a business several years ago as I encountered lonches in a Mexican market in Nuevo Progreso, Mexico. I have been taking teams on short term mission trips to Reynosa, MX for many years. At one point several years ago we started visiting these certain street vendors that offered these unique mini-sandwiches called "lonches" that were unlike anything we had ever tasted. Our teams immediately went crazy for them and since that first visit to these street vendors, we have been going back for more lonches ever since. Our teams just can't get enough of them. Visiting Nuevo Progreso Market to shop and eat lonches has become an integral part of our trips. After we had already been going to these vendors for a few years, it dawned on me one day that I could create a business around these little culinary wonders. It stayed in the phase of dreaming and planning and experimenting for a few years, but the day came when I put all that dreaming and planning and experimenting into action.
My plan is to bring lonches and this unique experience...The Luncho Libre Experience to you!
So far I have been cooking lonches and bringing the Luncho Libre experience to family, friends, teachers and office workers in the Nashville area. My goal is to expand my reach and to have a presence in several local farmer's markets, flea markets and festivals. I want to have a mobile food kitchen as soon as possible. I am currently in the process of pricing food trucks and trailers. The funds I raise via KickStarter will help with several business expenses including food, equipment, licenses, and fees....and will hopefully go a long way towards the purchase of a food truck.
I'm excited about the future and about partnering with you in this Luncho Libre venture. Thank you so much for your support!
