Valencia Luncheria Food Truck Brings Arepas, Burritos, and More to CT!

1 May

Chef Michael Young has been a busy boy. ¬†First he got the Bodega Food Truck up and running and now he’s putting the finishing touches on the Valencia Luncheria Food Truck. ¬†Holy crap, yes, it’s true. ¬†Valencia + food truck = DA BOMB!

The food truck serves two purposes:

1) ¬†It’s an easy way for Valencia to cater parties and events.

2) ¬†It’s an easy way for your to get your Valencia fix when you’re not near their Norwalk spot.

Starting off, they will are¬†offering arepas, burritos, salads, and a few other options. ¬†As they go out and make food, they’ll tweak and change the menu if need be. ¬†Their plans right now are to hit up Landmark Square/Vets Park in Stamford two days a week, so get ready! ¬†And, they will certainly be hitting up other spots around Fairfield County, too, so make sure that you’re following them on Facebook, and¬†Twitter.

For more information about hiring Valencia for catering or parties, please call ’em up at (203) 453-5928.

15 Food Trucks Roll into Orange Fairgrounds for RBS Food Truck Festival

1 May

Update:  due to the threat of storms, the Food Truck Festival is postponed until May 23, 4-8 pm.  Please spread the word and tell your friends about the new date.  

One of the key benefits of the weather getting nicer (theoretically, look at it outside, bleh) is that it’s food truck season. ¬†Of course, in our minds, any season is food truck season, but¬†we can be realistic and say that a good majority of trux go into hibernation. ¬†Well, shake off those sleepy heads because Race Brook School has put together a monster food truck festival for May 16 23 from 4-8 PM. ¬†

Ditch your fancy restaurant plans and, instead, take a bunch of your friends over to the Orange Fairgrounds.  10% of all sales are being given directly to the Race Brook School that Alex from the newly launched The Buzz Truck (in attendance) went to!

This is seriously the best way to kick off a beautiful weekend with…

Cool Beans: The Buzz Truck Set to Percolate, Caffeinate + Feed the Masses

8 Apr

Update:  The Buzz Truck is running and fully caffeinated!  

Mornings, afternoons, or whenever you wake up from your late night out just got a helluva lot better.  That’s ‘cuz we’ve got a brand new food truck that’s ready to hit up the streets of Fairfield County called The Buzz Truck.  Run by husband and wife team Alex and Jess Grutkowski, The Buzz Truck is nearly ready to get us buzzing with caffeine and fill us up with some awesome local baked goods.  We think their new food truck will fill a major void in Fairfield County and will round out events perfectly.  So, let’s hear a little bit from Jess about how The Buzz Truck came to be, what drinks and food they’ll feature, where they plan to be stopping and setting up shop, and what their plans for the future are.


Where did the idea for The Buzz Truck come from?

The idea came about organically, just from being a coffee lover and a mom short on time. My husband Alex and I both have a corporate background (online advertising and public relations, respectively). We always knew that someday we would start our own business, but it took some time to come up with the right idea. We thought about children’s parties, the Community Theater in Fairfield, mini golf, but nothing was “just right.”

I was always late to pick up my girls from nursery school at Earthplace…it was kind of embarrassing. But my friends and I would always cover for each other when we were late to pick up, especially since some of us drove from Fairfield and would get stuck on the highway or behind school buses.

I remember being in line one day watching the clock – slightly panicking – and the only guy in front of me pulls out a piece of paper and starts reading off orders…”One sugar, free, non-fat, vanilla latte, extra hot 190 degrees, not a ton of foam.” I was left to choose:  be late again or ditch the line and forego coffee all together.

Then the idea hit me. Why isn’t there an ice cream truck, but for grown-ups, with coffee? Even the name, The Buzz Truck, came to me at that moment. I could drive to the nursery school at pick-up time and the moms and staff could get coffee or tea, kids snacks and drinks.
