How We Began 

2017 

Having both always wanted to run our own business, when our time was coming to an end in Dublin we began brainstorming on what we could do to make a living in Connemara.

 

We both love food but didn't have enough resources to buy or rent a kitchen to operate from. Having seen the food truck movement in the states we thought that we could do something similar here while focusing on good coffee and simple, fresh and tasty food. 

 

We searched done deal for second-hand food trucks within our budget, found one that hit the mark and just went for it. With a lot of help from friends and family, we managed to open up in time for Easter  2017. 

 

Where We are Now 

2019 

Now going into our third season, the time has come when we have outgrown the original truck and need a bigger space to prepare and cook in. Our answer is a 20ft, second-hand container which we are converting into a kitchen on wheels.

 

With the addition of a looped coastal path at Killary Adventure we decided to move into this car park which is 50m down from our original location, so people can go for a stroll along the shore and finish off with a bite to eat and a cup of coffee with us.  Pictures to come....

How We Began 

2017 

We have both always wanted to run our own business and when our time in Dublin was coming to an end, the brainstorming began on what we could do to make a living in Connemara. We both love food but didn't have enough money to buy or rent a kitchen to operate from. We had seen the food truck movement in the states and thought that we could do something similar here while focusing on good coffee and simple, fresh and tasty food. 

 

We searched done deal for second-hand food trucks within our budget, found one that hit the mark and just went for it. With a lot of help from friends and family, we managed to open up in time for Easter  2017. Starting small with very few food and drink options we wanted to focus on doing what we did well and growing from there. 

 

Where We are Now 

Now going into our third season, the time has come when we have outgrown the original truck and need a bigger space to prepare and cook in. Our answer is a 20ft, second-hand container which we are converting into a kitchen on wheels. The design is funky, unique and still has the same feel as the original truck with hatch service and outdoor seating. 

 

With the addition of a looped coastal path at Killary Adventure Center, we decided to move location to this car park which is 50m down from our original location. From Easter 2019 onwards, people can go for a walk along the shore and finish off with a bite to eat and a cup of coffee.

 

We will keep making our food with the same ethos of tasty, simple, fresh and local.
