More than Just a Race.

The Mac 'N Cheese 5k is a passion project that I started last year, and in a few short weeks, after months of hard work and riding a steep learning curve, it will finally become a reality. If I can be completely honest for a moment, I knew nothing about hosting a road race. But three and a half years ago I knew nothing about owning a food truck either. Now we are two trucks and growing! While running a food truck and hosting a road race may seem like two entirely  differe...

Ok guys. Please allow me to begin by expressing my apologies. For those of you who love following our story, it’s been a while since an update was posted. You could say things have taken off a little bit, and next thing I know it’s 2019. Crazy, huh? Nevertheless, we do have TWO HUGE announcements to make. You will find one at the end of this post. The other? In due time.... (Spoiler: due time = next week).

So, 2018 was amazing. THANK YOU Denver metro! At Mac ‘N we experienced some new highs and l...

I am tired. Today was a long day, just like every day has been the past couple of years. TV and other media tend to glamorize entrepreneurship, so I grew up thinking that I would see instant success if I started my own business.

But all we see is a facade, rarely delving behind the scenes to witness the literal blood, sweat and tears that happen behind closed doors.

  

The tireless, sleepless, restless nights tossing and turning hoping that tomorrow is a better day. Realizing that Rome wasn’t...

Then and now. Before and after. These words provide an interesting contrast for the mind to ponder. They draw a distinction from a time prior to a time present. Often, when placed together, the contrast is meant to evoke a progression towards perfection. Finite objects exist in imperfect forms; there always exists a way to improve. That is what makes reflecting on the past so intriguing. You learn to love the process of improving. Then, every day becomes a practice towards perfection. Henry Ford...

Time flies when you are having fun. It’s been a year and a half, but it feels like yesterday.  Although I call it my second gig, in reality Prost Brewing was my first. As those of you who have followed my story will remember from my post last week, the Alzheimer’s walk was forgettable. Needless to say, I will never forget to lock my fridge. my memory is forever scarred with the vision of Mac’n scattered about the truck floor.

Prost Brewing is a German style brewery with locations i...

My mother often repeated a phrase that went something like this: "You can catch more flies with honey than you can with vinegar." Put otherwise, friendliness and kindness will get you further than anger or demand. The older I get, the more I realize the universality of my mother’s wisdom. I consistently find that it is the relationships you build that will help you succeed. 

The food truck community in Denver is very communal. Outside of the token confrontationists, the vast majori...

I’ll be the first to admit, I never wanted to own a food truck. My dreams consisted of brick and mortar, a store on the corner, a plot of land, not a mobile masterpiece. However, as a young entrepreneur, I quickly realized I had a giant problem: unlike Randy Moss, I didn’t have “straight cash homey.”

Building a restaurant is expensive. You need grease traps, a hood, fans, exhaust systems, make-up air units... etc. etc. etc. You get the point. I began to estimate that it would take at least $...

The idea was set; a Mac ‘N Cheese food truck was happening. However, there was still one tiny problem. My standard meal consisted of microwave burritos. How could I cook? How does one make cheese sauce? Ever heard of rue? The answer to all was…. no.

No worries, I was not to be deterred. Like any millennial I searched the first place that came to mind: Google. I spent the next few days browsing each cheese sauce recipe I could find. I sought to understand the ingredients. What was unique...

Hello everyone, and welcome to the Mac ‘N Noodles blog!
