The Opportunity

Lowell, MA does not have a food truck. Spiceventure wants to become Lowell's first food truck.

The Antonaccio's (Chanthip and Joe) were the original owners of the Southeast Asian Restaurant. Our food quality is legendary. When we sold the restaurant in 2005, our customers were disappointed. Those that still follow us want us to open a new Restaurant. We have decided that a Food Truck would be fun and give us the flexibility to provide Lowell and the surrounding areas with our exquisite culinary creations.

Sam grew up in the restaurant and our dedication to quality foods has rubbed off on him to the extent that he is now making dishes that rival what we had in the restaurant. Sam will manage all aspects of the Spiceventure Food Truck. Mom and Dad will help where needed.  

We specialize in Southeast Asian and Indian foods. We make it a priority to purchase fresh locally grown vegetables. A mobile Food Truck provides us the best opportunity to cater parties on private property, something we could not do conveniently from a brick and mortar place. We can imagine setting up alongside the Merrimack River and serving our wares to a happy and hungry crowd. There are numerous companies in the immediate area and from our preliminary marketing efforts we will have many companies calling us to cater parties for their employees.

We need your pledges in getting our mobile kitchen up and running by Spring of 2014. We have already invested over $20,000.00 for the truck and some of the equipment we need, but we need more cash to finish the job. Our goal is to raise $10,000.00. Be among the first to pledge in order to get the ball rolling.

Here's a sample of how we make Phad Kee Mao (It will be a lot easier in our truck): 

Here are some photos of the dishes we make... mouth watering.

Risks and challenges

Our confidence in our skills is our biggest asset. The biggest risk we face is not having enough money to complete our truck build in time for Spring of 2014. Our plan B is simple. We will continue to pursue this project.

We're excited to make this a reality, please join us.
