about mac truck
The Mac Truck was launched by Dom Tesoriero during the summer of 2012 at the Historic Saratoga Race Course in Upstate New York. With very little time and resources to put together; Dom, along with the help of some close friends and family conceptualized the brand, rented and redesigned an old pizza truck to create the Original Mac Truck. The Mac Truck was a hit and quickly became a fan favorite among Saratoga racing fans, setting the stage for the Mac Truck’s Next Grand Opening… NYC. Rolling into Manhattan as NYC’s First and Only Mac and Cheese Food Truck, the Mac Truck immediately got attention from Manhattan’s hungry Midtown and FiDi lunch crowd. Having the cheesiest lunch option on the street, and arguably the best music selection ever, the Mac Truck built an army of loyal customers who we affectionately called #macheads.
By 2018 the Mac Truck had expanded into 3 Trucks in the NYC area, selling our cheesy goodness at the BIGGEST events like; GovBall, NYC Comic Con, Afro Punk, Belmont Stakes, NYC Anime, and Saratoga. But on New Year’s Eve 2018, Dom would meet the Cheese to his Mac.. and the Mac Truck was about to head WEST.
In a crowded NYC apartment party on New Year’s Eve, Dom met Lee Pedone; a kindred entrepreneurial spirit. Lee immediately fell in love with the concept and convinced Dom to bring the Mac Truck brand to Texas.
The Mac Truck built an immediate presence in DFW. Expanding into concessions at major events, creating a manufacturing and distribution arm to the business, developing products for retail, and launching a franchise company; with intentions of bringing the brand to every state. To this day; they are bringing those ambitions to life.
