Lou Billittier commented, “Chef’s has been a favorite in Buffalo for over 90 years.  Our family is excited to take our signature Spaghetti Parm, (where cheese is broiled on top of a plate of spaghetti) with favorites like salads and cannoli, on the road.  We will have a special “On The Go” menu, including special sandwiches to make our food truck experience unique.”

At the news conference, Lou added that the truck will employ six more people to compliment the 100 plus employees now working at Chef’s.  He added that one of the first stops will be at the Buffalo Broadcasters Media Night at the Buffalo History Museum July 21st; then off to the Orchard Park Country Club for a charity event on July 22nd, and a charity event for Buffalo Hearing and Speech soon after.  Lou said his team will take the truck to various events in Western New York when invited, in addition to suburban office parks.
