Food Trucks Are Rolling Into Wisconsin Weddings and We’re Into It

This is one wedding trend we can get behind.

What started as a fun surprise for wedding reception guests – late-night slices from Streetza Pizza or Pete’s Pops on the dance floor – has morphed into full-on food truck catering.

Jackie Scott and Anneke Mohr wed at Kohler-Andrae State Park, with a brunch reception featuring waffles from Press. Later in the day, the Triciclo Peru truck rolled in with a second course of empanadas. “People still have not stopped talking about the food trucks,” Scott says. “We gave extra waffles and empanadas to everyone on their way home and still had some left to put in our freezer for when we got back from our honeymoon.”

Press also made an appearance at Shelby Klein’s wedding. Klein didn’t want to make her guests choose from the traditional chicken or steak. Instead, they could choose Press waffles, tacos from Taco Local, grilled cheese sandwiches from Melted – or all three. A self-proclaimed foodie, Klein says she chose food truck catering in part for the “delicious eats” and in part for the logistics. “Food trucks were a great alternative since they are used to cranking out many orders quickly,” Klein says. Another plus: “No need to rent expensive flatware from a caterer.”

Not convinced? A post-dinner food truck appearance is still enough to surprise and delight guests. (It’s a great photo op, too.) And, as Pete’s Pops bride Colette Cascio affirms, Popsicles make “the perfect mobile dessert!”
