We (Ashley and Matt) decided to buy a food truck on a whim. We’d both had successful corporate careers, but something was missing. We wanted to provide people with an outlet to relax, have a good time, and let loose — and we wanted to do it through food. We launched our food truck business as a do-it-all catering company that could accomplish our customers’ most off–the-wall event ideas.
Our small team of husband, wife, and toddler immediately grew with the addition of Jesus, our General Manager and executive chef, and the business took off. While continuing to add excellent people to our team, we branched out from doing traditional American-Italian cuisine to include all types of foods, while retaining an Italian influence.
Like so many others before us, Matt’s Grandma Nancy and Great Grandma Florence were the inspiration behind our food. They’d spend days in the kitchen making everything — from scratch — for our family dinners. They knew that food would bring everyone together, help us to forget our worries, and enjoy our family’s company over a great meal.
The Mangia story is only beginning. We hope to get the chance to call you one of our own.
