About

Hi! My name is Andrea Crow, chef and co-owner of Pangea Cuisines, a Paleo food catering company. Pangea Cuisines started in 2012 with one thing in mind, to serve clean healthy food that not only makes you feel good but tastes good too. First, I should tell the story of Pangea Cuisines. In 2011 I was looking at several gyms my area for my father, who at the time was gravely ill suffering with complications from diabetes, heart disease and obesity. During that process I found CrossFit and the Paleo diet. I was impressed. As an ex-military police officer, I respect the dedication of CrossFit, honoring fallen solders of operation “Desert Storm”  with workouts bearing their names. This hit home for me and inspired me to do better by eating cleaner and working harder. I introduced CrossFit and the Paleo diet to my spouse and co-owner of Pangea Cuisines, Katherine Henry. She was also just as excited about the simplicity of the hunter gather concept {lean meats, vegetables, and some fruit and nuts}, it just clicked for us. 

So in the early 2012 we started Pangea Cuisines, serving only authentic, hand-crafted dishes, utilizing fresh ingredients selected that very morning. We’ve created Pangea Cuisines strictly to provide the most fabulous options available in today’s Paleo marketplace. With our signature dishes like the "Caveman Breakfast" made with your choice of sweet potato hash or carrot hash, burger, 2 thick cut slices of bacon, topped with a single duck egg or an extra large hen egg and our version of Paleo fish and chips made with almond flour, arrowroot and a delicious side of Cajon fries, we needed a better way to get our community our food faster and more efficiently. Our solution was a no brainer, buy a food truck!

Coming soon... The Continental Drift...

We started the project in December 2013 when we bought an old Cumin's diesel bread truck. The truck needed some work. I relied on my Military Police training of perseverance and patience to get the job done. The work took us some time to get the right parts but we have almost reached our goal.

We have completed repairs to the front end and installed the generator, water system, service window, insulation and ventilation systems

Now we need your help to get us over the last hurdle of $16,870 to finish the project. We would use this money to purchase grill, fire suppression system, a paint job, and all the inspections and licenses needed to bring our truck to the community. We have several donation options available. No matter the dollar amount, your backing will help finish our truck and get it on the road. I would like to give you a hug and say thank you for supporting Pangea Cuisines and helping us make our dream come true.

Risks and challenges

We are uniquely poised to take on the risks and challenges of this business. Andrea has over 10 years experience in the food business and is ready to run another kitchen, just one on wheels. Katherine will be taking an admin role to manage social media, event bookings, and all the other odds and ends that go with having a business.
