Empanada Mania Launching Food Truck Via Kickstarter

Empanada Mania, the empanada-specific restaurant in Bergenfield, is making the move to a mobile concept as a food truck. Owner Galo Grijalva has decided to raise the funds to convert a recently purchased school bus through crowdfunding site Kickstarter — with the campaign starting today. With the $15,000 he hopes to raise, Grijalva plans to install stainless steel panels plus add electrical, plumbing,  cooking equipment, fire suppression, exhaust hood and fan — the truck will also need to be painted and wrapped.

Rewards for the campaign include: empanadas, t shirts, hats and more. And if any funds are leftover, they will be applied towards the backer rewards, Kickstarter costs, taxes, and the inevitable Empanada Patty Wagon launch party. For more info on the campaign or to contribute, visit their Kickstarter Page.
