Welcome to Ka’Chi Truck

2014 in full swing

Its been a little bit since writing on our blog. Here is an update….Since the spring we have been hopping around and staying busy to feed your hungry bellies by opening our 1st takeout stand Ka’chi Kitchen in Booths Corner in April, booking up catering events, and slinging our grub at events across Chester county and Philadelphia. Its been a great year so far and we are looking forward to the rest of this season with your support and following us around to eat. Now with the 2014 season in FULL swing keep us in mind for your next catering event and keep posted for our events via website or twitter!! #kachitruck #kachikitchen @kachiphilly

Baby, it’s cold outside…

We will be closed and off the road from December till February 2014 for a break to gear up for the 2014 season. (except for catering)

Thank you all for a great 2013 season and look forward to the coming year. Have a safe and happy Christmas and New Year!

EXTRA! EXTRA!

Ka”Chi was featured in Bucks Life magazine and the article was recently posted online. We wanted to share that article with you to read a little bit more about us and some of the other local food trucks you might want to check out.

Coming to a Corner Near You

As food trucks finally begin to gain traction along the Main Line, we peer into a few of the most magnetic of the cramped kitchens for a taste of their ingredient-driven, meticulously-prepared innovations.

foodtrucks

Food trucks are a true sign of the times: Talented, uncompromising chefs determined to make a name for themselves in spite of their lack of resources. But the trucks aren’t a product of the times. They date back to the Wild West, when chuckwagons fed cowboys and remote workers. As America urbanized, food trucks sprang up in the center of the activity and catered to blue-collar workers in need of a fast, cheap lunch.

School’s Out for Summer…

Now, that the summer is about to begin, Ka’Chi has a bunch of events that will become staples throughout the hot season. We wanted to give you a preview of what to keep your eye out for if you want to catch us this summer. Of course, we have many other events lined up, but you’ll just have to wait to see what those are as they come up. Check out the list below to see when Ka’Chi is coming to a place near you!

EGFM

The East Goshen Farmers’ Market is an outdoor market in East Goshen Park every Thursday 3-7pm. Come out and enjoy the park while you get some of the local fare. Stay posted to our schedule to see when we will be there.

PHAIR

PHAIR is Philly’s first open air market with a wide variety of vintage, handmade, and food vendors. This is a brand new market located around 23rd and Arch Streets, and we’re really excited to be a part of it. It is every Saturday from 10a-5p starting May 18th. Be sure to check it out the opening week! Ka’Chi will be there June 29, July 20, August 3,  October 19, and November 2.

The Artisan Exchange

This indoor market is sticking around for the summer. Some of the same vendors you’ve seen in the winter market are coming back throughout the summer season as well. They have music, food, and artisan vendors every Saturday, 10a-2p. Check our schedule to see when Ka’Chi will be serving up food to the locals.

That’s right! The Vendy’s are on their way to Philly.  It’s time to put your nominations in for BEST street food vendor in the city. Wanna nominate your favorite food truck in Philly? Just fill out the form HERE.

This is the 3rd Annual Philadelphia Vendy’s and they always seem like a good time! The Vendy Awards benefit a local organization, The Food Trust.

It’s Baaaaaaaack!

It”s that time again! Get ready for the next season of Philly Night Markets.

Come out for a great night of food and fun Thursday, May 16th at 22nd Street and Fairmount Ave.  We”ll be there along with some of the area”s other unique and delicious food trucks from 6-10pm. It is always an AWESOME event.  Come early! Come hungry!

 

Bigger & Badderer

Yes, Badderer IS a real word…. but that”s beside the point. Last year Swarthmore Co-op put on the first ever Food Truckathon and we were ecstatic to be a part of it. The event was such a Ginormous success (yes ginormous is real, I checked =p), that this Friday 4/19 Swarthmore Co-op is putting on the 2nd Food Truckathon! The Bigger & Badderer version with 15 trucks from the Philly/Chester/Bucks county area. We are glad to be back this year and to be serving again at this event. It is a BYOB event, so grab a bottle and support your local food trucks!
