Be a Part of Seattle's First Paleo Food Truck!
We need your help to get our project started. Kickstarter is an all or nothing fundraising site. When you pledge, we reward you according to the pledge level. If we do not raise the $20,000 for the truck and initial equipment within the 45 days, we will not get funded and your card will not be charged. If we do get funded, we will reward you based on your pledge and you will be part of the first and best Paleo Truck in Seattle!
What is the O.T.B.
Outside the Box is a project created by Cata Catering Company. Outside the Box is a mobile food truck that will cater towards customers seeking to follow their personal dietary needs and those following a healthier eating lifestyle. Our distinct menu will include high quality ingredients without the use of processed foods. Real food made from natural ingredients. Outside the Box will be mobile and visit various Crossfit boxes and other fitness facilities.
The mission of Outside the Box is to be the first mobile food truck in the Seattle area to provide delicious paleo friendly and healthy meal options to the residents, visitors, and athletes of the Greater Puget Sound area.
What we serve:
Outside the Box will serve primarily paleo meals, salads, wheat and dairy free options, a vegetarian and low carb menu and specialty drinks. Everything served will NOT contain, gluten, dairy, added sugar, or processed foods. Outside the box will also have frozen ready to warm and serve meals to take home and keep handy for those days you need a quick meal.
Who we are:
Charles Aguiling (co-owner of Cata Catering Company):
Started learning knife and sauce skills around 7th grade following his dad around catering gigs. His dad was the executive chef at The Harbor Club in Seattle during the 80’s and 90’s and has shown him many valuable life skills, including cooking. Charles has furthered his skills through the many stacks of Bon Appetit magazines, various cookbooks, and TV cooking shows. He loves cooking for family and friends and believes food is one the best relationship tools. More importantly he enjoys teaching his son Ashton valuable life skills, including cooking.
Donna Denina (co-owner of Cata Catering Company):
Grew up with a cornucopia of fruits and vegetables that went from the backyard straight into her mother's kitchen and on the dinner table. Her grandfather, a seasoned farmer from her native country, the Philippines, immigrated to the US in the early 80's and cultivated the land into fertile soil, producing eggplant, green beans, bitter melon, peppers, squash, sugar cane, garlic, onions and so much more. Donna would often help her mom out in the kitchen, cooking meals using vegetables harvested from the backyard. Finding a passion for cooking later in her adult life, it brings a self of nostalgia cooking for her own family, friends and her surrounding community.
Marizel Yuen (co-owner of Cata Catering Company):
Began experimenting with food cooking for her younger siblings. She attended Seattle Culinary Academy in 2000 while working for various Seattle restaurants such as Ponti, Chinoise on Madison, and Washington Athletic Club.
How can you help:
You can help us with 3 easy steps:
1) Pledging whichever level you feel most comfortable with. Anything and everything will help get us there.
2) Share this kickstarter site with your family and friends and everyone else you know.
3) Keep in contact with us on facebook and twitter and follow our progress
We are hoping to raise $20,000 for the sole reason of purchasing the truck and equipment upgrades needed to get it up and running.
$15,000 for the Truck and $5000 for the equipment and initial ingredients and supplies.
It's an all or nothing deal. If we don't make our goal in 45 days, we don't get funded, you don't get your rewards, your credit card does not get charged, and Seattle is without a Paleo Food Truck.
