Food Truck Owners in Eastmark
Food trucks have grown in popularity in recent years and we have several food truck owners that reside in the Eastmark community! Check out the list below to see the diverse group of trucks:
Brightside Burgers is a food truck owned by Angela Zibert, Chef Nick McGinness and Chef Adam Allison. Not only is Chef Allison recognized for his resume as a Food Network Chopped winner, Chopped Champion contestant, and personal chef/caterer to the Super Bowl for 6 years running, but he also takes pride in being a chef for his local ventures like Brightside Burgers. In fact, the owners decided to open a food truck to collaborate with another locally owned business called Cider Corp, a veteran owned cidery currently open in Mesa with a planned expansion into the Gilbert area coming soon. Once Cider Corp opens that second Gilbert location, the Brightside Burger truck will be stationed there 7 days a week serving gourmet burgers, appetizers like poutine fries, chili cheese fries, and creative desserts. The new cidery and taproom will be located at 685 S. Gilbert Road Gilbert, AZ 85296. Until then, the burger truck will also be doing small neighborhood and local events, so look for it in a neighborhood near you! If you would like to reserve the Brightside Burgers truck for an event, contact Angela Zibert at (507) 382-2659.
Dog On It
Those with Midwest roots will love the Dog On It food truck! The owners, Kevin & Kristen Rice moved to Arizona 4 years ago from the Chicago area. They noticed the lack of varying food options in the Eastmark area and had discussed with their many Midwest-transplant neighbors about the food they used to enjoy back home. Kevin decided to leave his 20-year corporate position to try out their business concept of quality eats with a food truck and so far, it’s been a hit! The menu consists of many midwestern favorites like the #1 best-selling Chicago dog – a Vienna Beef dog complete with tomato slices, pickles, onions, sport peppers, relish, and mustard on a poppy seed bun. They also serve burgers, brats, Skyline chili items, Italian beef, and other delicious masterpieces. To find out where the Dog On It food truck will be, follow them on Facebook @DogOnItAz, look for them on the Street Food Finder app, or see if you can spot the Chicago flag painted on the red trailer anywhere throughout the Eastmark community. This veteran owned business loves to support and give back to the community and also loves to work with local organizations to help raise funds or awareness for their causes.

If you’re looking for a food truck that offers a large variety, Jefecito is the one! Owner Jorge Lizarraga is a trained executive chef with over a decade of work in the hospitality industry. Jorge and his family dreamt of opening a restaurant, but after the Covid pandemic, decided to pivot to buying a food truck, since there is less overhead involved.

Eastmark resident Kayla Viliborghi turned her love of coffee into a food truck business called Lady Java.

Saguaros Tacos and Churros
Saguaros Tacos and Churros started because the owners, Mike Morales & Juan Cortez, wanted to share the authenticity and freshness of the true flavors of Mexico with their East Valley community. The Saguaros Tacos and Churros truck takes pride in having food that is fresh, made to order, and seasoned and cooked to perfection. The menu features classic street tacos with your choice of meat: steak (Asada), chicken, or pork (Al Pastor). To take the tacos up a notch, you can make them “Don Juan” style, with a crispy melted layer of fried Mexican blend cheese between the meat and tortilla. As they say, “once you try Don Juan, it will be hard to go back to classic”. For dessert you can enjoy a fresh-made churros with a crispy outside and buttery inside, covered in organic cane sugar and cinnamon mix. They’ve also recently added nachos to the menu for a crunchy, cheesy and meaty flavors all at once! The owners love to give back to the community as well, so they often participate in fundraising and sponsorship opportunities to support their East Valley community that they value tremendously. To find the Saguaros Tacos and Churros food truck, follow them on Facebook or Instagram at Saguarostacosychurros. They typically are in the Gilbert area near Williams Field/Recker or in Mesa near Springs at Red Mountain and can also be booked for private events by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rollin’ In The Treats
Rollin’ in the Treats is a fun food truck concept started by Eastmark residents Jeremy and Christy Husmann in 2020. One day as they walked by the Eastmark Great Park and saw the baseball fields full of people and kids playing, Christy mentioned to Jeremy that there was nowhere close for these kids and families to grab a snack or a treat, and hence, the idea of Rollin’ in the Treats was born. Their goal was to provide something fun and delicious for families to enjoy in the community. After almost an entire year of building the trailer, the veteran-owned truck is now up and running! The menu at Rollin’ in the Treats consists of funnel cakes, funnel cones, ice cream, shaved ice, and smoothies. To find out where the treats will be during the week, follow them @rollininthetreats on Facebook and Instagram. To book this mobile sweet treat truck, send them a message on social media.
Follow along with all of these local food trucks to see where they will be parked next, it is a great way to get out and be involved in the community!
