We have the Gastro part down, now we need the Truck! You can help us take our Grilled Cheese and homemade comfort food to the streets!
We are the home of Cheesy Goodness!
Introducing Catarina Triacca and Lori Bragg - owners of a new catering and food truck business in Central Florida! The Gastro-Truck is a company founded on the concept that what you eat should not just fill your stomach, but should also tantalize your taste buds and ignite your desire for something new; and Grilled Cheese. Our goal is to create delish comfort food that is elevated to foodie heights with an emphasis on Grilled Cheese.
Through the use of local produce, Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, collaboration with other local businesses such as bakeries and markets and our own homemade jams, pickles, beverages, granola, candies and cookies we will do our best to make the people of Central Florida happier, one Grilled Cheese at a time.
The Gastro-Truck will offer catering and appear at private events but our main goal is to service the Central Florida area for Breakfast & Lunch on a Monday-Friday basis and Farmers Markets on the weekends.
Some of the items that will be offered on The Gastro-Truck daily include:
Grilled Cheese Sandwiches (shocking, right?)
Fruits & Nuts: Greek Yogurt flavored with a touch of Honey and layered with choice of Fruit and Homemade Granola
Saturday Morning Cartoons: The traditional home-style pop-tart elevated to new heights: available in Strawberry with a Sweet Sugar Glaze or Blueberry with a Lemon Glaze
Cuban Done Right: Brined and Roasted Pork Belly, Sliced Ham, Muenster Cheese, Homemade Pickles, Mojo Mayo on Cuban Bread with a side of Spicy Honey Mustard
That’s a Gouda Burger: Ground Sirloin Burger stuffed with Gouda Cheese, topped with Tomato, Avocado, Red Onion, White Cheddar, Smoked Turkey and a Spicy Chili Mayo served on a Whole Wheat Bun
Simple. Fried. Goodness. Fresh cut Potatoes fried in Duck Fat or Canola Oil, coated with Truffle Sea Salt and served with a Roasted Garlic Aioli
The Best Thing You'll Ever Eat: Raspberry Preserves sandwiched between two French style Almond Macarons, dipped in Chocolate
Homemade Chilly Libations such as:
Sounds AWESOME, right?
Only one hitch, we need a Truck in order to delivery all this Gastro Cheesy Goodness!
Here is where you come in:
We need mullah to purchase a new or used truck and have it brought to code so we can serve this delicious food to you lovely people!
$9,000 will cover the cost of the food truck and any modifications required to bring is up to snuff. Any additional funds will go towards truck maintenance, permitting and licensing for the business and marketing tools like T-shirts and reusable mugs (good for discounts and free refills, who doesn't love free stuff and discounts?)
We are hoping to have the truck ready for the summer 2011 season and the bottom line is the more $cashola$ we can raise here the more likely that dream will become a reality.
So, basically you will be the music makers to our dreamer of dreams (Thank you Willy Wonka) and in return you will be generously rewarded! Please check out our lovely reward offerings and make a pledge!
