New Catering Option: Food Trucks

Food trucks seem to be the new trend for festivals and outdoor events, but have you ever thought of hiring them as a caterer? By offering one to two different food trucks (maybe one for the meal and one for dessert), your guests can choose their entrees and dessert from a customized menu. A lot of food trucks are offering favorite food options like pizza or sandwiches in a gourmet way. Here are some of my favorite food trucks in our area that you may consider hiring for your next event:


The Pizza Wagon

The Pizza Wagon is a mobile, pizza shop offering a large variety of brick oven pizzas. Their pizza menu includes traditional favorites like The Three Cheeses and BBQ Chicken or more creative options like "Roasted Mushrooms and Arugula" and "Farmer's Corn and Bacon". I tried their pizza at the Kennett Square Brewfest and it was delicious!



Forno Inferno

Forno Inferno is another pizza catering company in the Chester Country area offering traditional or specialty pizzas. Their pizza menu includes Margherita, Pesto, Philly and a Ferno Gourmet which is a white pizza topped with roasted red peppers, artichokes, goat’s cheese with a drizzle of truffle oil. 




Ka'Chi Truck

Offering Korean food with a twist, Ka'Chi Truck's menu includes tacos, rice, salads and specialty sandwiches. Similar to other food truck caterers, you are able to customize your order by choosing a protein, sauce and either rice or coleslaw for their tacos or bowls. One of their sandwich options is a slider and you can choose BLT, SPAM, Spicy Meatball or Grilled Kimcheese. 



The Sunflower Truck Stop

I discovered The Sunflower Truck Stop at the East Goshen Farmer's Market last year. Using fresh and local ingredients, they create customized menus depending on where they are going to be located that day with the truck. One delicious menu items included is their Crab and Artichoke Grilled Cheese with lump crab, spinach and marinated artichoke with gouda, cream cheese and sharp cheddar cheese on seeded bread. Most of their menu items are serviced with their own tortilla chips and a pickle.



Nomadic Pies

Nomadic Pies was another food truck that I found out about at the East Goshen Farmer's Market. I had been browsing the vendors for meal ideas for dinner and came across their truck selling savory pies, quiches and sweet pies. I knew it had to be good since they were almost sold out of every item! I was able to snag the last two Steak, Mushroom, Onion and Gruyere pies though which were amazing. They serve their pies hot, ready to eat or you can warm-up at home for later. 



Dia Doce Cupcakes

You can't forget dessert! As a winner of Cupcake Wars on the Food Network, Dia Doce makes some of the best cupcakes in our area. I had known about their company for a while, but recently had the chance of meeting them at the Kennett Square Brewfest last fall where I tried their Pecan Pie Cupcake. It was so good and I definitely recommend them for any event coming up! Their cupcake menu includes traditional flavors, but also offer more unique and seasonal flavors. Some of their summer flavors include Berry Lemonade, Pina Colada and Mango. 




I hope you are able to check out some of these amazing food trucks this summer and maybe include them as a caterer for your next event! 

Happy Tasting!
