Ayr on the first truck!

Our Origins

We sold our first sandwich on October 29, 2008, at a tiny white food truck parked on the MIT campus. Since then we’ve kept a pretty exhaustive record of every failure and success, blogging about the wild and wonderful process even before the first truck got on the road. Here we’ve gathered some of our historic posts.

Welcome. Have fun digging around. It’s been quite a ride.

It’s actually a take on a sandwich we had on the menu back in 2010. Ayr’s dad used to make a mushroom pâté, baked in a fancy French pastry crust.
