The owners of Fort Collins’ new food truck want to do two things with their mobile business: sell high-quality sausage and donate some of the proceeds to charity.
“We have a real passion for doing what we can to give back to the community with this business,” said co-owner Blas Estrada, 26.
Estrada is the sausage expert behind Rocky Mountain Sausage Grill, which debuted a few weeks ago at a fundraiser for The Matthews House. There RMS donated $1 for each $7.50 to $8.50 entree sold.
He and business partner David Jones said they want to provide a venue for nonprofits while also creating unique meals, all starting with sausage.
The menu includes a handful of sausage styles (German bratwurst, cheddar jalapeno, chicken apple), served on hoagies, pretzels or gluten-free rolls in a few styles. The Serengeti features homemade basil aioli and vidalia fig sauce with sauteed onions and peppers; the Venice Beach is topped with arugula, tomatoes and avocado cream.
Jones’ wife, Deb, and daughter, Katey, do all of the recipe creating, including a German potato salad side dish made with vinegar and bacon.
The food truck will be parked at various office locations during the week and outside Pateros Creek brewery and 1933 Brewing on weekends. They hope to sponsor more charities.
