  • Self Identified Competition

    Our first and biggest competitor is Gigi Gourmet. They are a food truck that specializes in gourmet food, such as sandwiches. They are in an excellent location with high foot traffic and have untraditional sandwich combinations that attract customers. Our second competitor is The Great Foodini's Mobile Bistro. They have excellent reviews on google and yelp, they have long hours, and have an expansive menu selection. Our third competitor is Dontgiveup Food Truck. They have a big social media following, a wide variety on their menu, and have great location spots. We are different from our competitors by the way we make the sandwiches themselves. By using local, high-quality ingredients, we chop everything up instead of leave it the traditional, boring way. By using this technique, you get flavor in every bite, and don't have to worry about ingredients that may fall out. This attracts adventurous millennials because it's something never done before. We are also different from our competitors by the way we value and care for our customers. As a Christian-based business, we stress the importance of building relationships within our community and being faithful stewards of God by our kindness, generosity, and selflessness towards others. We also have strong marketing and branding strategies that will allow our customers to always know our innovative menu and where are we are located during the week.
