Try Vegan® began as an idea that hit Vince Gulino at a Halloween party in 2014. He knew he wanted to spread the message of veganism and went on a mission to figure out how. He wrote a 40 page business plan and was about to start looking for investors for Try Vegan restaurant until he realized how much pressure came along with an outside investment of that magnitude. He then realized he was 26, living at home, and had some savings so he decided to take his savings for purchasing a house and invested it in himself. It was not a lot of money, but enough for him to buy a few old shuttle buses to convert into food trucks. In May 2015 he quit his job and began converting the old shuttle bus into a food truck. After a long winding road, Try Vegan® made it’s debut September 19th 2015 at a food truck festival in Trenton, NJ.
Since then, the Try Vegan’s food trucks have been fortunate enough to vend at some of the biggest festivals on the east coast including Governor’s Ball, Meadow’s Music Festival, Moonrise Music Festival, NYC Pride, Imagine Festival, and EDC Orlando. All the while, Try Vegan is promoting knowledge and awareness with our “Did You Know” sign on display for thousands of onlookers.
It order to continue bringing the food to the people, Try Vegan expanded into the meal delivery service by partnering up with Executive Chef, Erin Walsh, who spent the last 5 years perfecting her craft as a labor of love for all to enjoy. We wanted to ensure we provide the most healthy organic vegan food, so we have decided to partner up with local organic farms in the area and provide our meals based on what is in season.
We have also expanded into our own line of clothing so show your support and get yourself some awesome clothing which will allow us to make more designs.
As Michael Scott would say, Its a Win Win Win :)
