About

Here's the lowdown. Zino's restaurants was created by my family in 1965 and loved by many until around 1995. Now its time for great food made on a mobile kitchen and brought to you...

"Its deep fried dough...with melted cheese...and marinara sauce. How can you go wrong?"

-S.H.

We believe Cincinnati has gone too long without our hot gooey Zinovers in their hands. So, I'm here on a mission to bring them back. But this time, from inside The Zinomobile!

What's a Zinomobile you might ask... Well The Zinomobile is a mobile food kitchen that will provide signature Zino’s items and new items consistent with Zino's standards to the Greater Cincinnati area and beyond... Catch us on your lunch break or on your way home from a night out. We will be there with exactly what you need. Cater a party!!!! A hot Zinover, a cheesy hot brown, or a seven layer salad- you name it!

The Zinomobile in all of its glory

So I have my truck. But I need your help getting my kitchen up and running- or should I say rolling. Because Zino's quality food is going to need some high quality machinery. 

Let's kickstart this project and get the Zinomobile rolling!

Risks and challenges

I have secured a mobile kitchen.

Typical problems for most restaurants tend to be under capitalization and penetration of the target market. Since the project will not happen without full funding, the first obstacle is addressed.

The target market is anxious and ready for this product in the Cincinnati area. There is a great blend of nostalgia from my generation and love of food trucks from the younger. I anticipate a VERY interested, broad, reach for Zino's in our area and then spreading regionally.
