About

THE BEGINNING

Founded in 2010, Paddy Wagon is one of the  first "food trucks" in Columbus, Ohio and the city's "Original Mobile Dining Experience". Our restaurant on wheels patrols the streets of central Ohio serving up unique American cuisine on a lunchly basis. 

Paddy Wagon was founded by one of Ohio's native sons, Zach James ,aka "The Sheriff". He attended The Ohio State University and left school in 2010, staking everything he had, to launch the first Paddy Wagon truck in a lot on High St. on August 18, 2010. The Paddy Wagon's original "Line-up" was a burgercentric menu with specialties such as, the  "Bacon the Law Burger" and the "Border Patrol". Over the last three years our list of offerings have evolved continually and so has our brand.

METAMORPHOSIS

At the Columbus Arts Festival, in the Summer of 2012 the Wagon commissioned 4 local artists to turn the exterior of the truck into a "mobile masterpiece" .

In the spring of 2013, we refinished our image yet again, and completely remodeled the truck inside and out. 

From the trucks opening in 2010,  the industry and network around the mobile food industry has grown and changed exponentially. From roughly 5 "trucks" in 2010 to an estimated 50 presently in Central Ohio alone, and more to come. As well as over 15 new festivals in the area with "food trucks" as the primary attraction. 

What hasn't changed is the Paddy Wagon's dedication to serving excellence in its products and guest services, maintaining our outfit as the real food truck "authorities" in Columbus. Our practices and superior standards have recently brought us INTERNATIONAL attention, being featured in a segment on an episode of "EAT ST" {to be aired} on the Cooking Channel and Food Network Canada.

On August 18, 2013 , after months of blood, sweat, and tears, Paddy Wagon officially launched its second unit at the 2013 Columbus Food Truck and Cart Festival. 

We spent the better part of the summer building out this second truck from scratch, equipped to best serve our followers.

WHAT'S NEXT?

Any food truck owner will tell you, what's the hardest part of keeping business mobile?....PEOPLE KNOWING WHERE YOU ARE . "Where do you set up?" It has to be the question we are asked most by new customers and the biggest challenge for our hungry fans. Although there are a great deal of obvious benefits to a rolling kitchen ... this is one of the drawbacks. 

SO HOW DO WE CHANGE IT??

For over a year we have sought an opportunity to make our offerings more accessible. Although parking one of the trucks in one location semi-permanently may work for some, we are taking a different approach.

Established in early spring of 2013, Little Rock Bar is quickly becoming an anchor establishment in the up and coming Italian Village revival. Located just north of downtown on 4th st., LR prides itself on good beer, a better vibe, and the best people.But they ARE missing one thing....CULINARY JUSTICE

                                      www.Littlerockbar.net 

This is where we come in. 

We are currently in the process of building out a full-service kitchen inside Little Rock where we can serve our menu. in one place. everyday. JAILHOUSE | ROCK will offer a full menu of "most wanted" items from the Wagon's lunch rotation, as well as a full line-up of unique new items and weekly specials.  Yet again a labor of love, we will be pushing our craftsmanship and kitchen acumen to there limits, outfitting the space completely from the ground up.

This is where you come in.

WE NEED YOUR HELP! Just as unconventional as the mobile kitchens it is inspired by, JAILHOUSE | ROCK will require us to get creative and build a kitchen in a VERY small space.This will be an inevitably expensive and time-consuming process and we are looking to YOU columbus, the city we live in, play in, and LOVE to serve, to help us get the working capital we will need to complete our kitchen and bring some serious "Culinary Justice" to a remarkably underserved neighborhood.

Contributions from our supporters will go towards:

KITCHEN EQUIPMENT

MARKETING MATERIALS

POINT OF SALE SYSTEMS

PERMITS AND LICENSING

CONSTRUCTION COSTS

Every dollar you can afford to contribute will bring us one step closer to our dream... Lawful Lunches on every street, in every neighborhood, in this great nation!

In appreciation for your interest in local business and investment into our future, please enjoy some Paddy Wagon swag, compliments of the Sheriff.

Thank you for caring and KEEP IT LEGAL.

Risks and challenges

As with any new venture, we are faced with the likely possibility of unforeseen challenges during the process. The most obvious, the remarkably small space we assume to turn into a full-service kitchen.
We can confidently assure our supporters we will overcome ANY obstacles presented, just as we have in the past.
Approximately the same dimensions as the kitchen space in either of our trucks, we see HUGE potential for what we can do with this space with the right funding.
