The idea for this business was born in 2019, from the hand of brothers José and Jesús Moreno.
Carvel Ice Cream Truck
When Tom Carvel decided to buy his first ice cream truck in 1929, his goal was clear: to make people smile. Over the years, he has managed to sweeten the lives of many Americans and spread his business to twenty-five states (in New York alone he has more than one hundred locations).
Carvel’s ice creams are distinguished by their freshness and creaminess. They also serve other desserts and treats.
Cesar’s Empanadas Truck
Cesar’s Empanadas Truck is located a short walk from Atlantic Terminal in the borough of Brooklyn. Specializing in Mexican food, this place has served celebrities such as Alicia Keys and Jimmy Kimmel.
Due to the pandemic, it had to close for safety reasons. Now it is open offering delicious dishes again.
Chicken vs Lamb
The Chicken vs Lamb truck is located next to the Albert Einstein College of Medicine. Thus, it is an excellent option for lunch in the Bronx neighborhood.
Among its dishes, the spicy rice stands out. They also serve other Halal delicacies.
Eddie’s Pizza‘s business in New Hyde Park was very successful. The pizza stood out for being tasty and low in calories. As a result, he decided to run a truck-based catering service.

Makina Café is the first Eritrean-American company with a truck serving “Habesha” food. A different proposition for visitors to Long Island.
The word “Habesha” is used to eliminate the difference between the tribes of Eritrea and Ethiopia and celebrate the unity of people who share the religion. Therefore, through the flavors, Ethiopian, Eritrean and Italian cultures are blended.
