The Big Cheese made it’s curbside debut in December of 2010 as part of the first wave of gourmet food trucks in the DMV. We are often asked “Why a grilled cheese truck?”. When we first hit the road in 2010 the initial idea what to do a pizza truck but there was already one in the area. With only a handful of food trucks around town we wanted to do something different. In 2014 we added a 2nd, bigger, Big Cheese (2.0) truck that was better able to handle the large high volume festivals we struggled through with the Lil’ Cheese. 2015 brought a couple tent vending set ups in to the mix and now we are a versatile mobile vending operation. While initially focused on lunchtime street vending we have shifted our focus to catering and events large and small.
